My figure has changed multiple times throughout my adult life.
I have been plus sized, have had mom-bod and currently, I have lost a lot of weight.
One thing I know is that no matter what my figure may be, ModCloth has always been there for me.
ModCloth is committed to being an all-inclusive, body positive fashion shop.
I have shopped ModCloth for years. In fact, ModCloth has been a favorite online store for me since I started Fashion Beyond Forty.

The ModCloth belief is that fashion is for every body. This holds true when you shop their online collection. You will find fashions for everyone from those who wear XXS up to 4XL.
They believe that every woman deserves to look and feel beautiful.
Sadly, so many women allow themselves to stop caring about how they look.
I know because I was guilty of this at one time.
The Previous Me
I know that clothing is not the ultimate most important thing in the world. What I do know however is that when we look good, we feel much better about ourselves.
From our self-esteem, to emotionally. Fashion truly can change the way we perceive ourselves. This, in turn, changes how we are perceived by others.
I used to have the mentality that I did not care what others thought about me. The fact of the matter is, however, the way others think about us can matter a lot.
From the way, our children’s friends parents look at us, to getting that job we hope for.
We all deserve to put our best foot forward.
Speaking of putting our best foot forward, the blue suede booties I am wearing are from a ModCloth purchase a few years ago. They still look amazing and are very comfortable!
ModCloth focuses on helping women of all sizes express their personal style with their fun atmosphere. My focus on Fashion Beyond Forty is letting women aged forty plus know we do not have to limit ourselves in boring fashion.
My ModCloth Selections
The Aesthetic Input Polka Dot Cardigan
That is another reason I adore ModCloth! Their styles speak to every age in addition to most every size.
A lot of their styles are vintage inspired.
I had to have this gorgeous polka dot cardigan from their Fall 2017 new releases.
I am a cardigan fanatic.
That is yet another reason I adore ModCloth.
They have the largest selection of cute cardigans in many styles.
Including my coveted cropped cardigans.
The top I am wearing my Aesthetic Input Polka Dot Cardigan with is the Collared Keyhole Sleeveless Top in Wine.
I selected this item for a few reasons.
For one, I do not have anything else like it in my closet.
That is something else I love about ModCloth.
They challenge me to step outside my fashion comfort zone and try new looks.
Another reason I selected this cute top is that the peplum style covers any belly bulge.
On another note, for us ladies without a defined waist, it really helps give the illusion of one.
I love the fabric and it is right in between being professional and sexy.
I just love the keyhole neckline and collar.
Putting It Together
Plus I think we can agree, these two items look smashing together.
The cardigan gives it more of that professional, yet still playful look.
I have never been one to be afraid to talk about my size or my age.
All women are beautiful. Sometimes it just takes a gentle shove to get us out of our shell.
I am 48 years old. Currently wearing a ModCloth size Large. I have a 36C chest and wear a size 10 when it comes to pants and dresses. Usually a size 12 in tops.
The sooner we accept our body type, and our age, the sooner we can get out there and show our confidence.
I am confident, although I have not always been so.
Learning how to look my best and how to dress well has made a big difference in my confidence.
This is something I had to re-learn after motherhood.
I was quite the fashionista as a teen and into my early 20’s.
Then everything changed.
I focused so much on my kids and family that I “let myself go.”
When I realized I needed to take care of me again, I had to reinvent myself.
ModCloth was a big part of doing that.
Now, I am more confident than ever, and always a little goofy too.
ModCloth Life Is Beautiful
Life is short, grab the reins and take control over your fashion and your joy.
I spent far too many years making excuses as to why I didn’t make effort in looking good.
In addition, I had become a shell of my true self.
I am a big kid at heart, a goofball, and I have a bizarre sense of humor.
Yet, I am proud of these things and don’t mind letting the world know just what a dork I am.
I take few things seriously in life.
My family, including my furkids, our health, the environment, equality, and compassion.
I am committed to these things.
ModCloth is committed to making it possible and fun for all women to focus on the things they care about.
Spending less time worrying about where to find fashion that looks great and fits great.
Even when I try a serious pose I barely pull it off.
I know who the real me is, and I want all of you to feel confident in showing the real you.
Make a commitment to being proud of who you are, and how you dress.
ModCloth Makes Sense To Me
That was my commitment to myself, and to you readers, when I started Fashion Beyond Forty.
To make me, and others feel good about ourselves.
With a focus on empowerment, not just fashion.
That is why ModCloth inspires me. They are about the same thing!
Whoever we are, whatever size we are, whatever our personality shines outwardly.
We ROCK, each and every one of us!
I truly hope I have inspired someone out there in this big Internet world to make a change for the better.
