Comment on Where to buy my book by Cindy La Ferle http://www.laferle.com/2017/08/forget-amazon-heres-how-to-buy-my-book/comment-page-1/#comment-236038 Mon, 21 Aug 2017 18:53:36 +0000 http://www.laferle.com/?p=28061#comment-236038 Karen,
Amazon does tell you that you have to sell a certain quantity before they will send payment. But I’ve gotten past that point, since I’ve been selling my books on Amazon for more than 10 years. I added a Kindle edition, and recently received a notice saying they won’t cut me a check but will credit my bank account for Kindle editions sold. I’m not comfortable with that, and am also concerned about not getting a check for the paperbacks sold. They keep changing the rules of the game, and I have serious concerns.

Comment on The annual spring fashion report by Cindy La Ferle http://www.laferle.com/2017/05/the-annual-spring-fashion-report/comment-page-1/#comment-233850 Sun, 21 May 2017 13:27:43 +0000 http://www.laferle.com/?p=27959#comment-233850 Linda, thanks for your comments. Interesting points. The point of the article — at least what I got from all the women I interviewed, is that women of all ages should stop taking clothing and fashion so seriously — and start having some fun again.

Comment on The annual spring fashion report by Linda Tuomaala http://www.laferle.com/2017/05/the-annual-spring-fashion-report/comment-page-1/#comment-233807 Sat, 20 May 2017 08:36:52 +0000 http://www.laferle.com/?p=27959#comment-233807 Enjoyed your Life Lines article about fashion for women over 40. It is quite a spread though from “over 40” to those over 70 who still want to be fashionable but may be a bit more conservative. Also clothes at Leon & Lulu and Janet Varner tend to run on the high end of the $$. Wonderful, timeless perhaps, but not within some budgets of seniors. I recently overheard a “mature” woman at an event comment that her dress was $700, but she was also going to get to wear it to again this summer. Calulated that means the average was $350 per wearing which does bring down the price. 🙂 It did look awesome on her and the quality definitely showed. Then there is the information that Studio Sandra carries items for women between the ages of 30 and 80. Soooo what happens to those that are pushing 80 or over 80.??? 🙂 I realize that it was a figure of speech and it did give me a chuckle. Now throw in the figure issues of age and some of the easy to wear clothes just tend to hug those little or big “wrinkles” around our hips. I did look up her site and what I saw would not be items that I would feel comfortable in now or at 40. Soooo for many of us it is still a search.
A famous actress once said something like this–to wear things that would be flattering to you from the waist up because that is where you want people to look and see you. So it is black pants for me and I work on the top half being attractive, flattering and not to dated. 🙂
This is just observing from one in the “higher” numbers.

Comment on Fierce after 50 by Julia http://www.laferle.com/2017/02/fierce-after-50/comment-page-1/#comment-231725 Mon, 20 Mar 2017 17:00:22 +0000 http://www.laferle.com/?p=27739#comment-231725 Hi Cindy, I just found you from Susan of Une Femme and wanted to let you know that I am also a Michigan blogger! I’m also one of the few over 40 bloggers who are not thin, actually a size 16, yet still finding great clothes and still rockin’ an outfit. I’d love for you to pop by!

Or you could phone any national chain bookstore (like Barnes and Noble) and they could order one for you. Or go online to order. Ask for the gift edition with the faux leather cover. Hope this helps. I don’t have an email for those bookstores.
