Hands down, the mid-rise boot cut jean is the most universally flattering jean on every woman. It all has to do with the balancing of the proportions with your shoulders, hips, and ankles. The boot cut shape at your ankles will create the perfect balance so that your bottom half doesn't look like an inverted [...]

About Barbara Burns - Fabulous Over 50

Fashion coupled with serving others is in Barbara’s blood. Her first job was in a fabric store, where she created sample outfits that were displayed for customers. Later, she graduated from The University of Kentucky with a degree in Textiles, Clothing and Merchandising. After moving to Nashville more than 35 years ago, Barbara spent many years in management for one of our city’s first department stores, Castner Knott Co. After 10 years with Castner Knott, Co. and fast forward a few years…Barbara hired Tina about 6 years ago when she was the marketing director for her husband’s new start-up company. Tina came in and changed her life because with Barbara’s super busy professional life she didn’t have to think about what she was going to wear each day. When Barbara’s husband sold the company, she knew that working with Tina was the perfect fit.
