>> we love how we're going through the decades today. we're starting in the 40s with filomena. what does she have?

>> i love a great maxi dress for spring or summer. this one is under $50 from ashley stewart. and i really like how it skims her body, nice, flattering silhouette and gave her the jack fret ella tweed to give her a little more coverage, nip at the waist. and she looks great.

>> she sure does.

>> she feels great.

>> i love the purse with it. that's adorable.

>> guess who is come out now? fay in her 70s.

>> doesn't she look amazing? i always think women in their 70s make the mistake, they try to wear clothes too baggie or look for elastic waistband pants. i found her pants with stretch that she's comfortable in from chicos but they're tailored and she feels comfortable in them. a lot of women of a mature age don't like their arms, or upper arms, that's a big trouble spot. i gave her a nice tailored blazer, in a really bright, beautiful color.
