{Timeless Style} Diane Danvers-Simmons

“My dad was born in 1899,” says FOF Diane Danvers-Simmons, “and he used to say that the most attractive decade for women was the 1930s: elegant lines, beautiful fabrics and just really well made, well-fitted clothes.” His words made a lasting impression. Her style today? “Classic with a twist. I love Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dresses, Donna Karan and Tracey Reese. I also love a chic sheath dress which I accessorize with a beautiful piece of jewelry.”

“I’m not a frou-frou person or a twee person with my clothing. At my age, it doesn’t look good. I don’t wear big flowers or ruffles that overtake your body.” –FOF Diane Danvers-Simmons

    In a sense I agree with Diane as I thought the clothes from the late 20’s and the 30’s were beautiful. I have pictures of my mother and her sisters in some of those dresses. I think a woman of any age over 50 likes to look chic but not fussy. It gets harder to find clothes for women of my age as the new designers seem to think that everyone is 20 something and design all of the clothes for that age. I would not be caught dead in some of these styles at any age.
