You can read the full winning submission from Jean on Debra’s Page located the sidebar and continue to email her for advice on fashion, food and fun @ Here is a a short excerpt from Jean’s entry:

“A few weeks ago, one very serendipitous evening, I happened upon the blog “Advanced Style” and something shifted. A spark was ignited. Could this be a soul stirring? Can a style blog be powerful enough to awaken a passion so deeply buried? Looking at all those luscious posts, the confidence and twinkling eyes,post after post of folks who were indeed GROWN UP…. My inner muse who began blossoming in the 70’s , is now an inspired woman on the thresh-hold of continuing change.”

Congratulations to Jean and Thank You to all who entered!
