The #LoveChico’s Girlfriend Event!

Fashion & Style for Women over 50.

The #LoveChicos Girlfriend Event

So I have to let you in on a secret!! If you watch our video below, I accidentally flashed everyone my belly button—eeek!! But I didn’t notice until we got home from the event, so it was too late to redo it!! So just close your eyes when it gets to that part and then I won’t be as embarrassed, okay?

The other apology that I need to say upfront, is I’m extremely sorry if I misspell anyone’s name in the dialogue below! I don’t think about asking how to spell names until I’m writing them.

So first, I have to give a huge shout out to Chicos along with Courtney, Janie & Sherrie. You were so welcoming for us to invade your store and create such a disruption!!

Who doesn’t love shopping with their girlfriends? I think the best thing about shopping with others is the different perspective that another person can give you. And if that girlfriend is a fashion blogger—that’s like double trouble!! I’m going to include a ton in this post, so pick & choose if you don’t want to spend forever on my blog today!!

There’s the video at the bottom of this post so you can hear all 3 of us and a quick synopsis of what we are wearing! Of course, you can always subscribe to my You Tube channel and watch the video later if you want!

Then there’s a slideshow right above the video to give you an idea of the night in action! Thanks to my wonderful husband, Rob, who spent the entire time hanging out with us and taking the photos. We are still working out all of the glitches with taking photos inside and the lighting issues, so bear with us. One day, I’ll be better at it!

Girlfriends are the Best!

And to start off let me introduce you to some of my wonderfully supportive friends, who came out to have fun shopping with us!

This is Cathy who is one of my book club beauties!! She’s been such a fantastic friend to my blog over these last couple of years! I bet you, she tried on about half of the store this evening and took home a ton of it!! But isn’t that the fun of shopping with girlfriends?  One of the items she bought was this jacket (the linked one–not the one in the photo below) which is incredibly lightweight and so stunning! In fact, Nancy ordered one too because she was trying it on earlier in the evening!

I didn’t get a fabulous photo of Sally by herself, but here she is below, with my mom in the foreground! Sally is really a friend of the family, and we are so thankful that she persevered to make it to the event. She’d been extremely busy all day and then drove to the wrong mall before coming over to Park Meadows! Our reward to her was giving her tons of attention along with wearing  her out on this shopping expedition!! Aren’t we the nicest?

I think we had all of our friends trying on this cardigan that my mom wore!! It’s one of those pieces that can be so versatile! The cardigan is called the 3 way cardigan, but we found 4 ways to wear it! If you’re interested, my mom shows the 4 different styles in the video below!! And if you’re not a fan of the print version, Chicos also carries it in some solid colors, here.

Then, my knitting friend, Kay showed up!! I know that this location for the event wasn’t the most convenient for Kay, but she was such a dear to drive all the way over to support us! If you watch through the slideshow, you’ll see Kay wearing a navy cape in one of the photos that she ended up buying! It’ll be perfect for all summer long!

And then the icing on the cake for the evening was meeting Lesley. Lesley is a reader of my blog who lives in Denver, and came to the event just to meet us!! I can’t tell you how great that made us feel! And did you notice the fabulous layers of pearls that Lesley is wearing? She had even seen my post about pearls on Sixty + Me that I had just published and felt emboldened to wear hers!! You’ll see in the slideshow a photo of us helping Lesley with her turquoise cardigan!! It was such a fabulous color on her!!

Our Outfits:

Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: I went shopping with the thought that I wanted an OTS shirt since I finally had a strapless bra in my possession! The nice thing about this shirt from Chicos, is that you can wear it lower on your chest to bare the shoulders more, but you can also wear it like this!

It has the funnest ruffles on the sleeves too, which you can see a little better in the slideshow, when my arms are in different positions!

The pants are the Brigitte pants that we talked about in the video! Here are the print ones in gold, but our store also had the same print pants in white. I couldn’t find the white version on Chico’s website, however!

Fashion & Style for Women over 50.

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: Both Nancy & I are wearing the Brigitte pants in the cropped version. The solid colored ones can be found, here. We laughed at how in the photos of the “real” models, that the hem came to the middle of the calf; whereas on us, they were almost normal length. The nice thing is that if you’re short like us, you could order the petite version, here. Luckily our store will be starting to carry petites in a month or so!

And here’s Nancy’s jacket that she’s wearing! Since it’s considered a crop length, it ended up being perfect on her. We discuss in the video how the sleeves can be adjusted. And even when we make them longer, the nice thing is they are still about wrist length!

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: Now, since my mom is a little taller than Nancy & I, and she’s not a fan of the cropped version, she got the Brigitte pants in the ankle length, here. For my mom, this allowed them to come all the way to her foot.  For those of you women who love to travel, the elastic waistband on these pants is the best thing ever!

Since I already linked to mom’s cardigan in the girlfriend’s photos above, I’ll show you both mom’s & Nancy’s tank they are wearing, here. One of my mom’s tricks is to sometimes  wear her tank top backwards if she wants it to be higher in the front. These tanks are easy to do that with because their label is sewn in the seam instead of having an outline showing.

Our Jewelry:

If you’re anything like me, then I bet, you drool over the fabulous jewelry that is always showcased at Chicos! In fact, if you happen to be one of those women that prefers solid colored shirts, then I think that Chicos jewelry should be your go to!! I almost bought this necklace  because it was so colorful–but I had my heart set on the print pants and I thought it might be too much with it?

Fashion & Style for Women over 50

Nancy was drawn to this architectural design necklace. In fact, she basically built her outfit around the piece. Like she explains in the video, she ended up with the longer earrings, here, even though she doesn’t usually wear such dangle ones. If you’re the same way, there are stud earrings, here, that also go nicely with this necklace.

Fashion & Style for Women over 50.

I could find mom’s necklace on the Chico’s website. But this one, here, is very similar to mom’s except it doesn’t have as much bling! When mom picked out the necklace, we only thought about styling the cardigan so the sides hung down straight. That’s why we chose such a long necklace. If you think you’d want a shorter necklace to go with this print, I found this one, here (did I warn you that I’ve been loving pearls lately?)

Fashion & Style for Women over 50.

My necklace has both yellow and a mustard color in it, here! There’s also a shorter, 2-strand version, here, that I vacillated on getting, but the consensus was the longer one was better with this blouse!

Fashion & Style for Women over 50.

Here’s our bracelets above!! I’m describing them from left to right since you probably don’t know our hands!

On Jodie: Since I was already print mixing—I kept my arm candy somewhat subdued! Chicos has this set of bracelets, here, and if you consider that you’re getting 5 different bracelets—it’s quite the deal!

For Nancy: I let Nancy borrow my girlfriend bracelet that Chicos so generously sent me for being part of #TheFierce50. They are selling them in the stores now, so if you want one of your own, check them out here! I could only find the green one on the website, but our store had all of the versions. They have other colors like pearl, turquoise & brown! (Sally loved the red one because it had an giraffe charm on it along with a tassel).

Charlotte: My mom kept her bracelet neutral to blend in with her cardigan. But she did have fun with a little fringe and tassel detail. Here it is! I love that it looks like you took the time to layer a couple of bracelets, yet it’s really only one piece!

I can’t tell you how elated that we were to be chosen to be part of this #LoveChicos Event!! I’m sure you couldn’t tell by all of the smiles on our faces, right?

Many of you asked how this opportunity came about. Chicos is one of the companies that is behind us in #TheFierce50 Movement! They are know for having great styles and pieces for women of many ages, sizes and budgets! Just like the tagline of my blog says!! We want to thank Chicos for providing the 3 of us with our outfits for this event and for sponsoring this event & post.

  • Judy Gramith

    Somehow this post got away from me too!!! I DID look at the videos but somehow I missed this fully completed post… I saw it again at the end of your most recent post and didn’t recognize the picture so I checked it out. So glad I did!!
    This was one of your BEST ladies!! From your FABULOUS outfits to your on screen video presence, I am really impressed!
    You all had demeanors and smiles that were just lit from within and it was clear to me that you need to think about doing regular (perhaps seasonal?) visits to Chico’s or some other venue.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Well as my husband always say—from your lips to God’s ears!!
      We did have a local boutique approach us after this event…so keep your fingers crossed!! Because it really was such a blast! I think shopping with others is always an eye opening experience—even for professional shoppers like me!! 🙂

      • Judy Gramith

        Upon further examination I found that I HAD actually commented on the Chico’s event. Perhaps my brain needs a little exercising.. ..
        Hmm …shop my closet? OR
        …shop Goodwill?

        • Jodie Filogomo

          Hilarious!! And I would say that a shopping trip is in order as brain aerobics!!!! 🙂

  • Somehow I missed this post earlier. It looks like fun and you ladies all selected excellent outfits. I did see your belly button and let me tell you it looks totally fine. Honestly! I wouldn’t have given it a second thought unless you had mentioned it. You’re being too critical of yourself. Love your video too! You’re getting good at it!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for such a positive response, Julia–regarding the belly button and the video. I’m sure that the fact that I like to talk doesn’t hurt making videos—ha ha! Especially because it’s kinda like being a dentist. You talk and the audience can’t really answer 🙂
      XOXO

  • This looks like a fun day. And great outfits!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks!! Shopping & girlfriends is the best combo for me!!

  • You three ladies are just too cute! Love the video.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Jennifer!! 🙂

  • What fun! Some of my fondest memories have been shopping with my mother and sisters. Love your polka dot pants.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I think it’s way more fun to shop with others!! Thanks for the love!!

  • Austin Hodgens

    Don’t apologize for showing a little bellybutton. Sometimes you need to flash a little flesh to lure in the readers. The things we do for our blogs… 😉

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’m glad you weren’t put off by my skin!!
      Next thing you know, I’ll be showing off my knees—-ha ha!!

  • Lee Gaitan

    I love Chico’s stuff and you guys are rocking it. How fun!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lee!
      Chicos really has some great styles—and their jewelry? The best!!

  • Savvy Southern Chic

    Looks like ya’ll had a lot of fun! You all look fabulous.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Fonda!! It was such a kick in the pants to help other women shop!!

  • You all look fabulous! I love your top Jodie, the ruffled sleeves are stunning. I’m swooning over Nancy’s necklace – that’s something I’d definitely wear. Your mom looks lovely in that long printed cardigan. I bet you had a lot of fun 🙂

      We really had a fabulous time!!

  • Hannah Adkins

    This looks like an awesome event. It was awesome you guys got to meet up with a reader as well. How exciting. I think I definitely love the first outfit the best. Those stripes are so fab!

    Thanks so much for linking up with us on the Wearable Wednesday link up!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Hannah!! It really was a great time—of course, I love shopping, so how could it not be?! Ha ha!

  • Wow I love all of the clothes you ladies are wearing. Great top, Love Nancy;s jacket and your moms 3 way cardigan is so pretty on. Really love the jewelry too. What a fun event Jodie!

      Thanks so much Jess!! We really did have such a blast!!

  • dan

    You look so wonderful and happy, Jodie! It was a really nice event! Many nice friends, fashion and a lot of fun … very joyful post!

    I loved hear your voice…

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Dan!! 🙂

  • Oh this was sooooo up my alley!! I loved this post. And I loved to hear you three in the video. Aren’t you naturals???!!! I bet you did it in one take. This time your voice was higher Jodie. And you get your voice from your mum. Clearly. I love such voices.
    Chico’s is well-known to me as several bloggers over the years have shown their clothes. I bet I would wear them too if I were living in the USA.
    Now… for your outfits: I have never been so impressed. These three outfits are so good on you and they so underline your individual personalities. You know I can be a tad critical sometimes (OK, admitting it, I am a bitch). But the upside of that is, you now know that these raving compliments are from my heart. I really mean it, no flattery. I wouldn’t change a single thing. I also love your print mixing.
    A job well done.
    Greetje

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Ohhhh, Greetje! Your enthusiasm just made me smile from ear to ear!!
      But I will burst your bubble—it took a couple of tries with the video. The first couple were inside the mall and were too noisy, so then we came outside! I’d say it took us 4-5 times in all to get it!! But it was fun, and for some reason I like doing videos–I can see why people get hooked on them!
      XOXO

  • I loved seeing you ladies! This looks like a lot of fun and I love all your outfits!

      Thanks Jacqui!! It would be so fun to meet up with all the people I “talk” to through the blog!! One of these days, I’m sure we’ll meet up!! 🙂

  • Jan Correll

    Jodie, what a great event! Love Chico’s! You exude the best qualities of the Fierce 50 and love that you share your blog with your Mom and StepMom! Jan http://www.silveristhenewblonde.com

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Jan!! It is fun to have more than one age group on the blog—because just like being 50—if we are lucky enough, then we’ll also be 60 and then older!!!

  • Mary Kalpos

    It is so nice to see all of you ladies on video! And you all look fabulous! I can tell you had a blast!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Mary—it was such a fun time!! It was one of those nights that your face was tired afterwards from all the smiling and laughing!! 🙂

  • What a fun event and you all look stunning in your outfits! =)

  • Such a great event. I love Chico’s. I had hoped to make it to Valerie’s Chico’s night, but couldn’t get down to Seattle. You all look so lovely and it was fun to watch your video!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lana!!
      Where do you live? 🙂

  • Terri Webster Schrandt

    I love Chicos! Now I’m all motivated to go to my local store here in Sacramento! Fun event, Jodie! I wish I could have been in Denver to meet you all 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I have to admit that Chicos has been doing a great job with introducing different styles lately!!
      And their jewelry is always so gorgeous!!
      Thanks for the love, Terri!!

  • This looks like SO much fun!!! Your outfit is adorable. I love it all!

  • LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the video! So great to get to hear all of you talk! You all look fabulous! Your print mixing is perfect! And I love Nancy’s jacket – the perfect amount of ruffles & great fit! And your mom’s cardigan is so pretty, and I love how many different ways it can be worn. Finally, awesome jewelry. My old gym was next door to a Chico’s, and I stopped by all the time, specifically to look at their clearance jewelry. Some of my favorite pieces are from Chico’s…

      Ohhhhh….that’d be so dangerous to me, Andrea!! I don’t have the best self control when it comes to these lovely baubles!! Especially when they are on sale!!
      I still have a necklace from over 10 years ago from Chicos that I still love and wear!
      Thanks for the wonderful compliments!!

  • Goodness, there is so much to love in this post! First, how cool to have friends and blog readers stop by to shop with you. You are loved! Jodie, your outfit, your pattern-mixing is so much fun. So sunny and bubbly and energetic. I love it!! Love how Nancy’s jacket follows the flounces in your top, with its flounced or gently folded collar. And then your mom’s outfit is so chic! Wow weee! The jewelry, too, is spot on. You gals took it to a new high in my book!!

    • P.S. you have a cute ‘inny’ and such a little waist!!

      • Jodie Filogomo

        🙂 That’s thanks to my pilates instructor!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      What a super nice comment, Leslie. Thanks so much for including all of us in your compliments!! I made sure to forward this to both mom & Nancy so they can enjoy it too!!

  • Looks like it was so fun! You ladies as always look fabulous

  • Sounds like such a fun event!!! I am loving how you can style your off-the-shoulder top both ways!! The ruffles are so fun and it looks amazing with those printed pants. Yellow is one of my favorite colors!! Thanks for sharing with us at On Mondays We Link-Up :).

      Thanks Sarah!! I’m a yellow lover also, although I don’t have a ton of it in my closet—yet!!
      Thanks for the kind words!!

  • Lesley Watson

    I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed meeting all you ladies and how fun the event was. I can hardly wait to premiere my wonderful turquoise 3 way sweater & shell. The necklace & earrings Charlotte found for me are icing on this terrific outfit. Thanks for all your help and compliments. PSI can’t tell if spelling of my name is right or wrong it sounds the same.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Ooooohhh!!! I’m so glad you commented Lesley, and I went through the post and edited your name to be spelled correctly now!! In fact, kudos to Rob because he was sure that it was spelled Lesley—but I overrode him (silly me!!)
      I don’t even think I saw the necklace & earrings that you ended up getting??? You have to tell me…which ones did you get??!!
      But really, you just made our night showing up to shop with us!! I feel so blessed to have such wonderful readers like you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

  • What a lovely post! Shopping with girlfriends is fun! Really enjoyed watching your video! You all look so fashionable! I especially love your blouse Jodie. Great pants, I have some without a front zipper and they’re the best because tops lie nice and flat for a smooth look.

    https://fashionableover50.wordpress.com

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It makes sense that not having that bulkiness in front for your pants, would make them lie flatter. But I’ve always been against elastic waistbands before this!! I guess they seemed old fashioned or something! Luckily–I’ve changed my mind because these are wonderful!!
      Thanks for the kind words, Carmen!!

  • You all look amazing! Hittin’ it outta the ball park on this one ladies.

    I think Jodie your outfit is my favourite although I do love the lariat necklace your Mom is sporting.

    What a fun time!

    bisous

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Suzanne!! It really was fun (well maybe not as fun as your blog meetup since there was no cute waiter involved…ha ha)!
      🙂

  • What Judy Gramith said. Bravo II.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Jean!! 🙂

  • Superb Jodie ! I loved hearing and seeing you girls! You all looked magnificent.
    I can only imagine the excitement 🙂 particularly love your pattern mix, nicely done!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lorena!!
      It really was quite the evening for us!! The three of us love shopping, and it’s so much fun to be able to help others—especially when it’s not their cup of tea!!
      I am super glad I went with this combination for my outfit! It’s funny how I love it now that I see it in the photos, but I wasn’t too sure at first in the mirror!
      🙂

  • PetiteOver40

    I didn’t think I could love you ladies more than I already did but seeing you at this event just takes my adoration of you to a new level! You’re so welcoming, inclusive, and excited to see your friends and readers. Reading your post I found myself sincerely sad that I couldn’t be there to join in the fun. What a great group you three are–and gorgeous in your Chico’s outfits! Chico’s knew what they were doing when they picked you to represent them for this campaign!

    Hugs to All of You!

      Awwww, Sherry. You always know the right thing to say (and write)!!
      I have to admit, that I love these kinds of events when it involves friends and people I know. Because I love shopping no matter what, but it’s doubly fun when I get to do it for others!!
      XOXOXO

  • You look like you had a wonderful time with your posse!!

    Be fierce today and everyday!

      Back atcha!!

  • Better be belly button than something else lol! Great video and a great event too!

      LOL, Tamara!! You’re exactly right!!
      Thanks!

  • How lovely to hear your voices! What a great video of you 3. Very polished yet natural. And wow, Jodie you are killing the pattern mixing there with your stripes and patterned pants. Fabulous.
    And I love your new blog layout. I’ve been away for awhile but I’ve got my blogging hat on again and I too have a new blog design!

    http://petitesilvervixen.blogspot.co.uk/

    • Jodie Filogomo

      We must have been commenting on each other’s site at the same time, Jacqueline! I was so happy to see you’re back in the blogging world. I’ve missed you terribly!!
      Thanks for the lovely comment—I was worried that this print mixing may not be what Chico’s customers would like—but I think it went over well!!

  • Judy Gramith

    You three did a really lovely, sincere, and technically smooth video presentation. You said that Rob did the photos; can I assume that he also did the video? I think it’s all really impressive especially for a first time!
    Your outfits are TERRIFIC!!!! Chico’s really caters to women over 40 (my view) and has done a great job of catering to a variety of tastes while offering items that are on trend but not over the top.
    Jodie, your pattern mix is wonderful! The yellow and black combination is very flattering and those pants look so comfy!!
    Who cares about a flash of belly button!
    Nancy’s color combination, jewelry and fit are ALL perfect on her!!
    Charlotte also looks really great in the bronze color pant and top and that great palm leaf fabric and versatile cut cardigan
    is just great on her.
    This may be one of my favorite posts ever. You are ALL my favorite!!!
    P.S. I forgot to say that you all have great poise, voice tone and sincerity “on camera”
    BRAVO!!!!!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Awww…you made me blush with all of these super compliments, Jude!!
      I do think Chicos has been a fabulous option for us older women (although many of the pieces work for any age group!) I still have my first shirt from them that I bought over 10 years ago. It’s a metallic, striped sleeveless shirt that I used to wear under many of my blazers!! I’ll have to get it out and wear it again!
      Yes…Rob took the video on our phone!! I’m really hoping to start doing a couple more videos on a regular basis. The job of editing them seems like a lot of work, but it’s good for the brain, right? And now I need to invest in some better photography equipment so we can get our photos top notch!!
      Thanks for being such a fabulous cheerleader!! Your words & enthusiasm just made my whole day brighter!!

  • I just discovered your blog and I love it, the publication is wonderful .
    You are all more than so beautiful !!.
    I’m going to follow you because I do not want to lose me any of your publications.

      Aren’t they fun, Nicole?? 🙂

  • Laura

    I haven’t shopped at Chico’s before, but I love all the pieces and jewelry you are showing from there! I need to stop by next time I’m at the mall!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I really think they do such a great job having all kinds of fun & stylish jewelry—and that’s something that works for women of any age. In fact, I have a statement necklace from Chicos that I bought over 10 years ago–and it’s still relevant!!

  • This looks like so much fun! You’re giving me ideas of what to get my mom for her birthday! She loves fun prints and unique jewelry.

      I think Chicos has some of the best jewelry—and the best part is it always fits!!
      Thanks Roxanne!

  • Haha you are too funny! I wouldn’t have even noticed! This looks so fun and I love all your outfits! So pulled together!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Laura!! We had a blast to say the least!

      Thanks Laurie!! It really was super fun. It was one of those nights where your face is tired from all of the smiling and laughing!!

  • Love Chico’s So Slimming line…I have several pair of their jeans and jeggings. They’re great for my shape.

    Love all the looks you’re styling..but especially love your top, Jodie!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Well that goes to show that you’re a stylish woman Em!! I didn’t even know these pants/jeans existed!! I know my mom always talks about taking elastic waistband pants when she’s travelling, and at least these look better than many of the older styles!

    What a fun, fun post!!! I enjoyed every bit of it! Fun to see all of you in the slideshow and the video!! Kudos to your husband for his photography, what a great sport to hang out at a women’s event!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      My husband is quite the patient man, Karen!! But he’s starting to like taking the photos even though he hasn’t had much training!
      I’m glad you enjoyed the post—it really was one of those nights that was so high energy!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Nancy!!
      Doing these videos really makes me want to start doing them more—I just need to practice and learn some editing! 🙂

  • How much fun was that? Oh my gosh! I wish I could have been there. No worries on the belly button…we all have one. 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Well you’re right, Carrie–so thanks for making me feel better! I just don’t usually show my belly button off to others!!
      Thanks!!

  • Mireille

    Very lovely! I love your print mixing! Enjoyed the video!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Mireille!! I really want to start doing more videos now, but I need to learn some better editing skills! It’s all a good learning process though!! 🙂
