My Favorite On-Line Shopping Sites for Women of a Certain Age~



It is that time of year where I’m torn between nabbing fabulous deals at the after holiday sales or waiting just a few weeks for the itch to navigate my way through websites full of spring temptations.  Knowing my weak-willed self, I’ll no doubt indulge in both options.

What I can state with absolute certainty is that we women that no longer shop in the “Juniors” departments can find an abundance of shops and websites that offer affordable, fashionable clothing, shoes and accessories at our well manicured fingertips.  No frumpy mom jeans, appliqued sweatshirts, muumuu tops, chintz prints that belong on a 1980’s era sofa, granny panties, sensible shoes, or elastic waist pants.  Do not be afraid the spread your well toned wings and try someplace new.

These are some of my favorite resources. I’ve not included any sites that focus on high priced designer duds because while I love good quality and a bit of flamboyance, I am essentially a fiscal conservative in my own unique way.

For fabulous bras in a stunning array of sizes, a panty raid several times per year, inexpensive knit dresses, scrumptious robes, and great lounge wear:
