This is 40 : Rebecca from Red Tag Chic Los Angeles

Today I'm introducing you all to a mainstay on the 40+ fashion blogger circuit, Rebecca from Red Tag Chic Los Angeles.
There are so many reasons why I am a fan of this beauty.
For one, she is a C.A. by day {hello!} and still finds time to maintain a blog.
She ends every post detailing what she wore and never omits, "hair + smile, my own!". 
I also love that she doesn't take herself too seriously, that she sometimes shares her gorgeous daughter with us and then there's the fact that she has a figure that most 20 somethings would envy.
Welcome dear Rebecca.

1. How has your style evolved since getting older?
I consider my style to be a work in progress.  I try my best to evolve with the times but maintain an age-appropriate approach to dressing as I now have a 21 year old daughter who is my fiercest and number 1 critic. 

When I was a lot younger and starting out my career in the corporate world, my closet was a virtual sea of black and neutrals which made my mom so unhappy.  But now older and hopefully wiser, I'm more fond of colors and prints and a wee bit more adventurous to try new trends!

2. Anything you would have worn when you were younger but absolutely wouldn't dream of wearing now?
That would definitely be the crop tops!!!  Yeah in the 80s, I used to wear a lot of them (minus the stretch marks!) ....but it's absolutely a no-no now.  I leave the crop tops to my daughter now....she totally rocks them!

3. Any looks you regret?
Hmmmmm I can't think of anything major, although the closest would be my permed hair which I only regretted because of the damage it did to my hair then.  It was necessary because there were no curling irons yet at that time and I had stick-straight stubborn hair.  Normally, I don't regret any style faux pas because I treat them as part of who I am and something to look back and laugh about.

4. What do you know now that you wish you had known then?
I know now that beauty inside and out is EVERYTHING...and that smiling through it all will save one's butt in even the most awkward and uncomfortable situations.  

5. Who is your favourite 40+ inspiration and why?
Christie Brinkley, who just turned 60, makes me so brave to face my 50s which is already next year...hahaha!

6. Best advice you would give to your younger self.
Hey younger Rebecca...be more kind to yourself.  Stop obsessing about those flaws...it makes you who you are! 

7. Anything else you want to share.
IMy eternal advice to everyone:
Style-wise:  "Wear the dress...don't let the dress wear you"
Beauty-wise:  "Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!"

Wise advice from a wise woman. 
Almost 50? I can't believe it!
Rebecca, thank you so much for taking the time to be here today.
