When it comes to personal style, I live by these truths:
1. Fashion and beauty shouldn't cost an arm and a leg. (After all, it's harder to buy clothes that fit if you're missing limbs.)
2. Style doesn't need to have so many rules. (Come on, who likes wearing a uniform?!)
I just launched a new blog called Chic Contraire. It's all about being fabulously, stylishly contrary at every age -- and all without draining your bank account or damaging your credit rating.
Check in weekly for discussion, reviews, curated recommendations, style challenges, giveaways, podcasts and many links to fashion and beauty finds. Oh, and you can follow Chic Contraire on Instagram as well as Twitter.
