Last year the clothing company Foxcroft and I worked on finding two outfits to feature on my blog. When I was asked to select another two ensembles this year, I jumped at the chance. As luck would have it, I was in New York, so I was able to go up to showroom in the heart of the Fashion District. I also got a sneak peak at what's coming for Fall, and it's great.
What I like about Foxcroft is the quality of their clothing, The fabrics are first rate and the workmanship topnotch. Considering the quality of Fast Fashion, Foxcroft's clothes are almost like designer. The first piece is a bright red long shirt made of an eyelet fabric. It really is more of a jacket. The material is thick and I think it would be hard to tuck it in. The length of this shirt/ jacket is perfect for covering up "problem areas" whether it be the front and/or back!! Yet,it is not baggy and it still has a sophisticated look. It also has a very slight hi-lo design, adding to the up to date stylish-ness!!
We all know how many days you can spend looking for the right pair of jeans, right? Well, I promise you that the Foxcroft jeans fit me like a glove the minute I tried them on. They are straight legged but the waist is a high rise and very comfortable. Even though they have a higher rise, they are nothing like "mom jeans" and to the contrary, are very hip. (no pun intended). I wear a size 4 and they run true to size. Honestly, I was shocked that they fit me SO well.
Since the pattern is eyelet, it is necessary to wear a cami underneath (at least for those Over Fifty women who are more modest, like me!!) I chose white because I was going to a Birthday party where the theme was red white and blue, and I matched the decor perfectly!! I don't always try to do that!! I also wore a great necklace by Marla Wynn of HSN fame. The necklace is a great statement piece and isn't heavy in the least. I also wore a hat because the sun is not my friend. I have had several moles that have been dangerously abnormal but not malignant, thank goodness.
All in all, the pieces from Foxcroft when put together with my accessories, made for a very sophisticated look. This shirt/jacket is a heavier material, and I believe it would provide warmth even though it has holes. You can do so many things with this top as well. You can wear it over a maxi dress as the hemline is straight, or with a skirt for a casual work day. or even dress it up with a black cami and black slacks.
The third piece I received from Foxcroft was a gingham red and white checked shirt. Who doesn't love gingham in the Summer? Their gingham is also of wonderful quality. The fabric is very sturdy and would last many a summer, if you like to hold on to clothes like I do. In the next two photos , I am wearing it tied at the waist which gives you some versatility when styling.
I don't usually work out in my nicer clothes, but the gym was across from the party, so I decided to shoot this ensemble in the gym. That 5 pound weight also matched my ensemble. I should have stayed and done some arm work because as we all know, Over Fifty, we need it.
Of course, leaving the shirt untucked is always a great option and it covers that darned muffin top, that most of us struggle with. Do you know there is a new store for men where they make shirts that are meant to be left untucked? So untucked is in. This shirt looks great untucked as well. Again, I can not stress enough about quality of the material. No using this as a tablecloth!!
You can't go wrong with Foxcroft. This is my second experience with this designer and the great quality along with very versatile and lovely styling makes this company a winner. It is SO Fashion Friendly for the Over Fifty woman. Let me know your know thoughts. Do you own anything by Foxcroft. If so, has it lasted you forever? I would love to her from you.
