    Rules for dressing in your 50s image
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Women want to be stylish over 50 but are there any rules as to how women over 50 should dress? I’m not a stylist (and certainly don’t pretend to be), but I am frequently asked for comments for radio and press about what women over 50 should and shouldn’t wear.

    Guest Article by Liz Earle  It seems many of us feel the need to keep our midlife feet hidden from view  !! Being a fan of Liz Earle’s products , I asked Liz what we could do to get our feet summer sandal ready:  “Love your feet! They work incredibly hard and are miracles of design. If you look after them, they will look after you too. With summer just a stone’s throw away, it’s time to prepare your feet for their first sandal outing.” Did you know that there are 26 bones in each foot?  If these precious bones become imbalanced, the rest of your skeleton will too.
