I really was beside myself when I read the headlines stating that Ines was 50! I still remember flipping pages of “Vogue” as a teenager and watching fashion shows on TV and I remember Ines like it was yesterday … I just didn’t realize it had been that long ago and that she was 50 (born on August 11 1957).
I’ll admit that had it not been for the headline, I would have guessed her age at maybe 37 … she looks incredible.
I know for a fact that the French don’t go overboard with all of the anti-aging industry like we do in North America and I doubt Ines had any cosmetic work done.
In her article she actually talks about avoiding any type of cosmetic enhancement because she doesn’t find it looks natural.
The reason I bring up Ines is because in her style revelations she talks about H&M. She describes how she mixes designer or couture labels with some great finds from H&M.
I’m so happy Ines highlighted that because some women over 35 might think that a shop like H&M caters only to teenagers and young adults. A quick browse through H&M racks and you’ll see their sizes go from XS (extra small) to L (large). Their sizes are very generous and you might have to go down one size compared to other stores. I should also add that many of my friends living in Paris also love shopping at H&M and in many cases you cannot tell simply because of the way they mix and match.
Not everything will suit every body type, but everyone will find something at H & M and at times their prices are almost laughable.
I recently bought a number of t-shirts at H&M to mix with some of my designer wear and I could not believe that I got some really (REALLY) nice white t-shirts for only $9.90!
Another thing I’d like to highlight about H&M is the plentiful handbags priced at $20, $30, $40.
The ‘Style over 35 Tip’ would be not to be afraid of walking into shops like H&M and Zara and mixing and matching. You get great finds and you cannot beat the price. It’s true that some of the pieces you buy might not last longer than a season … but at those prices … you won’t feel cheated.
