It’s NOT your mother’s Talbots anymore! Even a die-hard flashionista can find lots to love! I was invited to cover the annual Hostess Night Event at a local store. Here’s what I bought with the evening’s discount. I could build a whole other blog post on items I had to put on my wish list. A girl has to have a little self-control!
1. I’m a cardigan lover. I’d like this one in all the colors, but for now I settled for Charcoal Grey. 2. I never would have tried this color (Pool) but Debbie, the manager, convinced me. It looked great with the rust jacket. 3. Animal prints are like cardigans, I can’t get enough. Can’t wait to wear it with jeans and a cardigan, of course! 4. The Rust jacket, the fit is so modern; cropped and nipped at the waist. 5. Grrr! Another animal. Zebra pumps, I’ll wear them with almost anything EXCEPT other animal prints. 6. If you haven’t tried Talbots pants on yet, do yourself a favor, the fit is awesome. These signature fit black pants are going to get a real workout in my closet. 7. The rolled up leg is MY look, so these boyfriend jeans were a no-brainer. 8. This wrap is deceptive; it’s so lightweight you’d never guess how generous it is. I’ll wear it as a scarf and a wrap.

When stylish items start turning up regularly in Glamour, Lucky, and People Style Watch, you know you’re not dealing with your mother’s Talbots anymore. They’re not suddenly targeting a 25 year old customer either, they are designing updated clothes and accessories that stylish women over 45 can look great in.
Flashionista was invited to cover Talbots recent Hostess Party, an event they do yearly in their village stores. It was a blast roaming around with a camera and even more fun trying on the clothes. With the lovely discount I was given, I was thrilled to shop and ended up with some great wardrobe boosters. The clothes look like they have designer pedigrees, but the prices are easy to swallow (even without the discount)!
