Thank-you dear friends + readers who make this fun exploration of style, something more of a graceful dialogue than a shout-it-on-a-street-corner soliloquy.

Bella! Wow! I feel so legit!!! Lol. I'm tickled too to be a rosebud sponsor, but more so to call you friend! Thanks girly!! Hugs to my friend!! Serene
Thank you Bella for all that you do to inspire, motivate and support this ever growing, diverse and vibrant community. Your self expression, both with style and the written word, has been a beacon of creativity for me for several years. Keep on blooming!
You may have felt a tingling last night. I went to Philly and was visiting Meghan (of Meg's Ragged Edge). When I asked her which bloggers she respected, she went on and on about you! She kept talking about how courageous you are, how ubiquitous you are, etc., etc. Eventually I had to stop her and say, "Is there anyone else?!" (No, I didn't; just teasing. Meg really likes you though.)
Isn't Serene great? I love seeing "Hugs, girly" in a comment - she doesn't even need to sign her name.
I really like that coat you are wearing. You look good!
I have some time this weekend and will visit a few of the shop you listed :-)
Serene's shop looks very interesting indeed, lots of lovely vintage finds.
I'm glad you have great sponsors, your blog is such a vital part of the +40 blogger community, and a very good place to be exposed.
What a stunning photo of you, Bella!
Hi Bella! You look sweeeet in that first photo!
I'm swooning over the Sophie dress right now. Trying to decide in a fabric choice. It's such a cute shape but may be too short in length for me, can't decide! Have you ordered a Sophie yet?
Keep blooming, my dear! :))
The women who read & comment on Bella's blog are so awesome. Most of the other blogs comments are just about what looks cute but the women who read Bella's blog are both fashion-obsessed AND real people who care about real things that matter. Thanks ladies! And gentlemen too, if you read this blog.
You are all so awesome. And Greenbean, I agree- I feel so lucky because the conversations here have so much substance and genuine perspective. I feel there is much more about style than topical what-I-wore chit-chat. Thank you for taking part in that! -Bella Q
Lovely post and picture, have a great Feb :)
You're welcome. And thank YOU for being so wonderful.
I love coming to see you here because I know I'll always be inspired by your passion, whether it concerns style with a conscience or saluting the women who are often ignored by corporate advertising. I know I'll read a post with integrity, intelligence, and good writing!! It don't get better than that. :-) XXOO
That top picture is so beautiful...love the smile!! I also love you and Serene both...you guys are making a difference in so many ways. Keep up the good work!
THANKS BELLA for being our 40+ community LEADER in so many ways! XOXO
And a Big THANK YOU to you Bella for your constant support and inspiration to the rest of the 40+ blogging community. You rock!
thank you for adding our new blog to your blogroll! My mom will be happy that I let everyone know she is way over 40!
Lovely sponsors, a great blogroll, and a very happy February to you too Bella!
Bella, what I love about you and how you run your blog is that you think about the community that you are part of.
I believe that you are a very giving person and since the first time that I commented on your blog you establish a friendship with me for which I'm forever grateful.
You always take the time to read and comment on all of our blogs and treat us as we are you close friends from high school!
Besitos dear Ofelia! xo!
I'm excited about your shop but had trouble accessing the site when I tried to visit. I figured you're still working out the kinks.
I just received a package from you. Will be opening it and styling it for the blog this weekend. You are amazing, and I love your blog like crazy!
