Welcome to the Style Your Way to Success Blog!

Linda WaldonI hope you find my blog a great resource!

It’s not enough to be smart and talented. Now you have to create a brand image and broadcast it all over social media. At ANY age, this is not an easy thing to do. But after turning fifty, it can feel like a challenge. This is not bad news. It’s just reality. What I’ve learned over the past seven years as a personal stylist is ANYONE can walk into a room and OWN it when you release self doubt and body image hatred, and dress in the colors and style that express all your gifts.

Your Feedback
I love hearing from you! You are welcome to write comments, email me with suggestions for future articles, or collaborate with me.

This blog is dedicated to helping you look put-together, feel confident and create your most passionate life. Please join me, and the “I AM VISIBLE” tribe of beautiful women over fifty reinventing our second act!

It’s cold outside. The sky is gray. A foot of snow just fell.

Red is such a fantastically energetic color that gives you a burst of juicy power! It’s warm and positive, and expresses leadership qualities, promotes ambition and determination.

Red has different meanings in cultures. For

It’s that time of year when getting rid of the old, and bringing in the new, is upon us. If you happen to find yourself alone for a day or two over the holidays, instead of feeling sad and lonely because you’re alone, consider devoting the alone time to good purpose by shedding the clutter in your life. Whenever I

What Would Your Closet Say About You?

It appeared from her remarkable collection of designer cocktail dresses that she danced the night away many times in her life. Dresses with vintage lace, taffeta, and silk; large bows at the shoulder, low-scooped necklines, and off-the-shoulder flirtations hung majestically in her closet. I could tell that the woman who

Pantsuits For Women Over Fifty

November 7th, 2016|Categories: Uncategorized|

As this blog goes to press, we still don’t know the outcome of the presidential race. Much has been observed and written about Hilary Clinton’s pantsuit attire, both positive and negative. All this talk about pantsuits got me thinking…

I find myself without a pantsuit in my closet. Over the past five years or so, I’ve outgrown the need for them.

At a Fourth of July celebration over the weekend I was talking to a wonderful artist friend who reads my blog about the topic of confidence, a subject about which I often write.

She asked me, “Linda, when do you feel the most confident?” I told her I feel the most confident when I am fully present in a situation and
