• It’s so inspiring to see a new fashion trend that’s both fun and yet sophisticated enough for women over 50.

    Don’t assume that the dot motif is too girly or too young. Yes, we know the line from the movie, Legally Blonde, “Harvard won’t be impressed that you aced History of Polka Dots.” However, dots now look upscale, grownup and sophisticated – perfect for ZestNow readers. They are the next step after our love of stripes.

    Polka dots are appearing at various price points including top designer collections at Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbama, Carolina Herrara and Comme des Garcons.

    Here are some great more affordable choices.

    As a designer and entrepreneur, products for women have always been my focus. In my first company DianneSullivan Designs, I designed and made fun jewelry for young women to buy in boutiques and department stores. That company transitioned into Miraflores Designs which designed and supplied custom designed soap, shampoo and other toiletries for hotel chains including Hyatt, Sheraton and many others. After selling that company, my next company, Bay Linens, Inc, designed decorative bedding which was sold through Bloomingdales, Bed, Bath & Beyond and other retailers. Our home decor products, with the brand, China Seas, was sold at Isetan Department stores in Japan. At this stage of life I'm connecting with other women over 50 who want to examine their interests and to connect with each other. At ZestNow.com I want to gather useful information and inspiration for this new phase of life.
