Favorites from The Fab 40s

This was the first post. We styled the Pantone color of the year: marsala with denim.
(Look how short my hair was!)

On Kremb de la Kremb since March of 2015, every single last Monday of the month has been dedicated to a post from The Fab 40s. For two and half years there have been a group of us–in our 40s–coming together to share in our love of styling clothes. We would take turns choosing a theme. When it was our turn, we’d invite a fellow 40-something blogger. It will sound odd to read that we became friends, but we all did–in that virtual way that friends are made today in 2017. Some members came and left; it was natural for life’s events to take us in other directions. At present we’ve stopped posting, but I don’t thing The Fab 40s are done. We’ll be back…. Because I enjoyed these last Monday posts so much, I thought I’d highlight a favorite pic from each of The Fab 40s’ members. Enjoy!

The Fab 40s as Princesses

Sheela was our leader. She’s the one who created our concept and got us started. This was my most favorite styling of Sheela’s; the theme was princess, and she definitely played the Belle here in her beautiful rose gown. Ironically this is the one picture where we can’t see yet another pair of Sheela’s fabulous heels!

The Fab 40s in Marsala with Denim

I always felt a special bond with Dawn Lucy as she’s also a teacher. We were all extremely sad when she turned 50. But, we hope she started a Fab 50s group–that way we can join her in the upcoming years!

The Fab 40s in Faux Fur

One of my favorite color combos is when navy and black are paired perfectly together,
so this was an obvious pic of Jane. Her style is so urban chic–always!

The Fab 40s in Holiday Wear

Sequin joggers–yes please! Sequin joggers with a sequin blazer–double yes please.
This stunning combo was obviously my favorite look of Dixie’s.

The Fab 40s in Hats

All of us always looked forward to how Samantha would style the themes. She’s unique, and quirky,
but always classy and chic all at the same time. That’s how her personality is too. She’s a no
nonsense woman that I really look to for style inspiration as well as friendship. (By the way,
I gave her this skirt, and I love how she style it. I never even saw the blues
in the skirt before seeing her style it in this way!)

The Fab 40s in Our Favorite Colors

The best thing about getting to know Jennie was seeing both her style and blog evolve from post to post. She just kept getting better and better! I chose this picture of her in her favorite color. Again, she surprised me because I would have never guessed that these greens were her favorite color; I thought she was a pink or purple girl,
but that is probably because she wears that hair color so well!

The Fab 40s in Formal During the Day

Out of all The Fab 40s, I could always picture myself in whatever Diane wore. Take this outfit for example:
I want it all. I love pairing sequins with something casual like cutoffs and sneakers. Seriously though,
she was always my style sister all the way!

The Fab 40s as Villains

For one of our posts we had to style a villian. I love that Veronica chose an
Angelina Jolie character just like me. I also always appreciate how fierce Vero is!

The Fab 40s in All White

Not many woman can pull off a bodycon white dress, but we could always rely on feminine, voluptuous Mary to rock another hot dress. I’d love to go through Mary’s dress collection. It’s immense from what we could all see!

Do you already miss The Fab 40s like me?
Hopefully we can get back together real soon….

(I think next month, on the last Monday of October, I’ll go through and choose my favorite looks from collaborating with The Fab 40s.)
