    Sarabella11, I ask your style sense because, as a buyer for a boutique, I am familiar with lines that will serve your needs and could possibly offer suggestions on where to shop for them in your area. But I need to know if you are edgy, sporty, romantic, classic, etc.

      Thank you for responding. Coldwater Creek is not me. Talbots isnt either.. They are not my style, I am edgy but petite and with time there are physical changes, need more coverage. Not everyone looks good in a no iron white shirt- I like silky loose shirts like Equipment or stretch satin. When dating I wore denim and satin trim tank tops, leather leggings. lace up cage heels or booties, stretch skirts. – My casual wear was all Express & Guess mixed with D & G or Nordstrom Savvy. Lace up suede bootie heels and leather boots , lace and satin, a bit Boho, romantic but not flouncy or flowy. Heels are not as comfortable anymore and I need more coverage. Thanks for listening

      Aha. Ok!! Google these lines and see if you can find any stores that sell them in your area: ELM Design, Rundholz, Porto, Sarah Pacini, Save The Queen, Deca Paris, Peace of Cloth. There are designs in those lines that will fit your petite frame and they are interesting, a little edgy, with some very age appropriately sexy pieces in them. Let me know if any of them appeal to you, or not, because there are a slew of others. Good luck!

      Oh they are all beautiful. All of them, wow…only Peace of Cloth available nearby but I can always get ideas from their sites. Save The Queen is so stunning overseas only buy ebay has some, Porto not here but good for ideas. Sarah Pacini is nice too, dont ship here but again this kind of styling works and I will be bookmarking pages for a list. Thank you so much. On the East Coast there are boutiques on the shorelineI can find looks similar there, with the ides from these sites.

    I’m 56 and get compliments on my clothes often. My advise is to try on everything before you buy it, and don’t buy anything that’s not flattering and doesn’t fit well. Nothing too small or too big. You need a perfect fit. As long as your clothes are flattering & fit well, you’ll look.

    Sarabella, where do you live and what is your style? Are you romantic, classic, edgy? What did you wear when you we dating?

    Try “Soft Surroundings” – it is mail order, but they have some beautiful, feminine clothing that is timeless. To add trendy touches to an otherwise classic look (jeans and a blazer, for example) scour the Junior department for a piece or two. Something inexpensive. I bought an orange blazer from JC Penny’s Junior department that has a cute orange and white stripe lining. I roll the sleeves to the elbow to show off the lining and wear with a tank, jeans and heels and it never fails to get positive reviews. The color POPS! It was inexpensive, so if I only wear it for the season, I don’t care if it is out of style next year/season. The Junior department isn’t for staples, but it does offer style, and in smaller sizes!!

    You certainly don’t look your age so avoid clothes that say you’re aging! What you need is an advisor from a clothing store. I strongly recommend Coldwater Creek, Talbots, etc. Wear the conservative basics with terrific accessories. Shoes this year are terrific and can make an outfit! Gladiator sandals with skinny ankle jeans are very trendy! There is nothing as ridiculous as a woman dressing half her age. The trick is the basics worn with what is new and fashion forward! btw: Congratulations to both of you on your marriage! Love at any age is simply wonder-filled!

      I found Coldwater Creek aging full of wide leg capris print t shirts plus as a size 2 their pants were big- they also had floral midi skirts Talbots very conservative too. I know I cant dress young- any other alternatives to these stores that you know of/ They are all there is near me and they are why I made a plea for help!

      Try going online to coldwatercreek.com and talbots.com. Also, as a size two, you will have better luck at Nordstrom’s, Neimans or Macy’s.

      I just went to ColdwaterCreek.com and they have tons of size 2s that do not have wide leg pants. Their sales are great for finding the smallest sizes as most women aren’t little. I sympathize with you, as I’m a size 4 and just 4’11” tall.
