Hi Everyone, here is a list of some of the accessories I used in the video including the shapewear. You can find them on this link to my blog and if you do get something we do get a small amount, so thanks for that!
Hi, Gorgeous! ! I was lucky enough to find you for the first time today, as I'm facing an upcoming birthday, and more "curves " than I've ever seen before....😣
Watching you just made me smile, and I have a feeling I'll be seeing a lot more of you!! You are so real and personable!! I love that you spoke as if you were speaking to your best friend...
Thank you for making my day!! Take care!!🤗🤗
I'm buying all my clothes myself right now so I don't have unwanted clothes. But that's an idea for the future...I might give them to charity though for women trying to get into the work force that need them.
I bought it at a small boutique a few years ago Linda. I do have similar pants, shapewear , tops etc.. at our Amazon storefront at www.Amazon.com/shop/awesomeover50 under our Fashion section. Click on the blue flowy cardigan there and maybe you'll find something similar. All the best with your searching.
My husband said that in tip # 7 you look more fatter and shorter without long top.. #6 dress is much better on you than short one.. proportions are matter .. and certain garments change proportions not for our good.. and last wear looks the best on you.. :o)
You stated your age. As i write this, I'm a hair behind ... and I dare say, you're God's b'day present to me 6 weeks early. Because if I look half as good as you (and yeah, I'm not bad at all) maybe I can stop giving guys a blank look when they give me the once-over on a "bad" day with no makeup. Love Your Hair! ty xo K
First time viewer. Great video!!! You seem to really enjoy yourself. Love your professionalism and presentation. I was stuck in oversized clothing. I'm trying to be confident in my size and wear what actually fits. Thanks for your tips!!! 😊
You are a great teacher! I'm sorry but the size six girls, ladies on the you tube videos attempting to teach how to look slimmer in clothes on their own bodies, just doesn't work for me. I want to see proof and instantly. I have some deep seated negative programming telling me I am over weight and will never look good in outfits again. Body image links to emotional maturity/self love or acceptance in some way. I am now rebelling against my own thoughts. Thanks to videos like yours, I can affirm I am on the right track. :) When I feel amazing in an outfit, that looks good on. That combined with the visual guidelines of dressing. Bring it on. I have purchased a dress form and will be teaching myself sewing alterations. Thanks again.
Wow, your comment just made my day if I'm helping you in some small way with this. I use to listen to the negative chatter to myself, especially since I was once a model and no longer skinny. I now think I'm beautiful and my positive affirmations (I still have to eat right & exercise) about my body weight give me the confidence and therefore happiness I need to live a happier life. So glad you're on this track to Tina. All the best with it!!!
Unfortunate that the black boot heels were against a black top. I would have liked to see the heel. Just a couple inches moved in either direction would have put them against the wall color.
Something to watch for in the future when editing.
Great advice Linda, thanks. This was one of our earlier videos and we are now showing closeups when the shoes or boots are featured as a main focus in the video. Thanks for the constructive comment, appreciated.
Hi Dawn, thanks for your question. Maybe this video can help (at the end of this comment) You can always look for the same looks at thrift stores there are some great finds there . You're only in your 70s and can rock some of these warm weather looks . Hope this helps https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQETVYRlN9s&t=2s
Not only hope at 64 but so much to offer this world! I'm so happy that you will no longer hide. Hiding is a way of having low self esteem.You're beautiful no matter how many curves you have! Enjoy your new clothes and OWN how awesome you look without hiding. All the best.
This is the first of your videos I watched and I immediately subscribed to your channel! You're gorgeous, I love your attitude. I don't quite agree to not wearing oversized clothing because you also looked amazing in that oversized blouse ☺ And you're absolutely right that posture is the most important thing! Much love from Germany 😙
You keep saying your curvy but your not. The majority of your body fat is right in the belly. Just because your round shaped does not equate to being curvy. Please stop claiming curvy. You are plus sized, not curvy.
Good video! Me and my sister have the tummy bulge and appreciate your advice. We have a question about tummy ware? How do you prevent them from rolling down? Everytime we wear them we are pulling them up all day!!
Hi Margie, I just bought shapewear with straps that allows you to wear your own bra. I didn't really have a problem with the rolling but I went dancing and sure enough it rolled down! The straps keep it in place to hold the tummy in! Hope this helps. Heather
You do have awesome ideas. Here's one for you, you really would look 10 years younger with a collar bone length Bob hair cut. Truely, when we get a little mature the length really adds years, honest. Because your curls are lovely & a Bob would show them to your best advantage !!!
This one is super thin Linda. It's made by Jockey, I think it's a man-made material but it's a nice one. The cotton ones are too hot for me too! I also just bought a eyelit top, it will be featured in my Summer Finds video out this Friday. It's wonderful to have a top with eyelet holes everywhere so I keep cool.
I have similar problems. Small weights are great for the flabby arms and many videos on YouTube give low impact exercises you can do at your desk. (search them in YouTube under flabby arm exercises) When I drink or eat any dairy I get big around the middle and look pregnant. I also do low impact sit ups etc.. and am watching more of what I eat. More veggies and fruits and less sugars and especially bread. Hope this helps. Heather
Theses days folks use the word “fluffy” for bodies that have extra inches on their beautiful curves. Great video. Will have to go looking for your version in shape wear. I have stuff like my mother use to wear which is not comfortable. Again. Thanks
I like your tips and your personality. I think perhaps you should have your colors done, I think if you wore these styles in your very best shades you would have even more of a lovely look than you already do.
I must say that I was nervous putting out this video. I'm just speaking from my heart and hoping it helps. Your words give my strength to keep on making these kind of videos. I want people to have more confidence, that's the most important thing.
Great, ty for posting. Time for me to go shopping!! Yep, black is usually what I wear and ironic but I'm your size : l so this helped me alot . Love your hair! Is it natural? I noticed the older I got my hair started getting wavy kinda soft curls so I barely have to mess with it. Also were really close in age, how ironic is that? Love your videos 🤗
I think your emogi was a glass of wine. Oh no, I would say (unless you have to) don't give up a glass of wine a day! Ask your doctor about your height and weight, I think it's OK for a 62 year old woman. Heather
Awesome over 50
Thank you for replying, I am 5'7" and weigh 168.... I am also 62. I have always been fit and wore a size 10 to 12, now 14.....:( I walk a few miles most days...
Maybe I need to give up the 🍷.....
Hi, my height is 5' 8 1/2" but I don't give out my weight.I walk a lot and have a lot of muscle in my legs that adds to the total. I will tell you that I'm from Canada and a size 11 or 12. In the USA that would be smaller. Hope this helps & welcome to the channel & community! Heather
Heather, I just found your channel and blog. I love your style and attitude. I am interested in the flowy turquoise jacket at about 9:45 in this video. I checked the lists you linked, but I didn't see it there. What is the label or where did you get it. The kimono style jackets are too big in the shoulder and sleeve, this one seems more "standard." I'd love to find one and if you can point me in the right direction, I would be grateful. Thanks so much for sharing your tips and flair for life!
Hi Valerie, unfortunately I bought that turquoise jacket last year at a small boutique and all the label says is "Creation" and it's made in China. Sorry I can't be of more help. I'm so glad you took the time to mention you enjoy the tips, it means a lot. Heather
Thank you for this video, most of us I believe carry a little extra around our waist and I for one am done dieting. Believing in our selfs and a few tricks like you showed us will go a long way in our confidence. We are still beautiful!!!!!
I love jeans but I find that the too stretchy ones get baggy & do not hold everything in at the right places. I prefer a liitle more structure to jeans. My pet peeve about jeans is the bulky zipper fly that makes the tummy look big even when it's not!
Thank you. You are a true inspiration. I'm 52 and feel like my life is over. Menopause is kicking my butt! Hot flashes and not able to lose weight like I could when I was younger. God bless you and thank you🌞
You'll get through it Maude! Turning the corner on this will come sooner than forever. Have hope & in the meantime enjoy as much of your fifites as you can when you're not hot-flashing. When I look back so many other things made my memories of my fifties amazing. All the best to you! Heather
