Hi my name is Lori McCaffrey. I’m a sales executive, wife, mother of two boys, J. Harry and Matt, living on the North Shore of Chicago. The idea for Fashion Friends and Trends evolved as a result of changes I’m experiencing in my physical appearance. My neck, upper arms, and the top of my thighs have fallen victim to the same circumstance, aging skin. It isn’t pretty.
This new condition is limiting my fashion choices. I already had restricted clothing options due to my life long problem area, my soft, fat roll filled middle! Nothing clingy around the waist, nothing tucked in, and for heaven’s sake no knits! Now with my less than attractive skin my fashion choices have been reduced even further. No more sleeveless shirts and dresses and no short shorts which really bums me out because my legs have always been one of my best features.
So, what is a girl to do? Although I won’t rule out getting some “work” done it seems like a losing battle. Exercise is good but will not reverse the effects of aging. After giving this some thought and consulting with my fashionista BFFs, Julie and Cindy, we agreed that best strategy to combat this challenge is camouflage through fashion. So we created Fashion Trends and Friends.
The goal of Fashion Trends and Friends is to give women a place to source great pieces/outfits that are on trend, flattering, and will minimize problem areas for different body types. A place you can come and be inspired. We hope you join us!
