She’s Got Style ~ Fashion Tips For the 40+ Woman
RHODE ISLAND via GERMANY
AGE ~ 57
Our latest She’s Got Style global fashionista was born and raised in Germany and has a self-described “obsession” with shoes and handbags. Margo Gallucci now hangs her stylish hat in Rhode Island, where she and her beloved cat enjoy watching old movies and pulling together outfits for her Instagram page.
Margo’s story is one of heart-breaking loss and strength in the face of adversity. Margo tragically lost her beloved son, which prompted her to begin posting her favorite looks on Instagram and take part in style challenges as part of her healing process. Not only has she met some wonderful new Instafriends, she has become a brand ambassador!
FCO50: How would you describe your personal style?
MARGO: My personal style is extremely diverse from beautiful designer pieces to distressed jeans! My absolute favorite designer is Michael Kors! I don’t like to put myself into a mold as I love diversity! I love feeling bold, fearless and fierce irregardless as of what I’m wearing!
FCO50: We’ve noticed you wear some stylish dresses. What is it about dresses that calls your name?
MARGO: My love of dresses stems from my love of old movies! Designers Edith Head, Irene, Adrian and Givenchy! I look for fit, flow of fabric, comfort and the amazing way that wearing that special dress makes you feel.
FCO50: How do you go about styling your outfit of the day?
MARGO: I always begin with my passion for shoes and build my entire look around a pair of shoes! Followed by my handbag which is my second obsession!
FCO50: Can you share any tips on how to accessorize a look?
MARGO: My jewelry is what I always choose last. I also love small dainty diamonds and gemstones as opposed to large chunky rocks! I like to combine a small delicate necklace with a larger more chunky one! I wear fourteen rings that never come off as they are sentimental pieces!
FCO50: Has being 50+ affected your style?
MARGO: I really have not let my age affect what I will or won’t wear! I do however feel that what I wear should always look classy and lady like and bold!
FCO50: What product tops your anti-aging must-have list?
MARGO: My must-have anti-aging products are Liftactive Eyes supreme by Vichy and Age Perfect Cell Renewal night cream!
I look for fit, flow of fabric, comfort and the amazing way wearing that special dress makes you feel. Margo
I was born and raised in Germany, the eldest of seven children! I am a licensed Hairdresser, however I do not practice at it.
I married at age twenty and had two boys! I was a soccer mom, a band mom and I focused most of my attention on fundraising! My husband and I owned a Security Company (burglar alarms etc) which I sold after his death in 2002.
My youngest son Derek passed away in 2015 and after a year of severe depression and at the urging of my eldest son, who is also my best friend, Anthony, I began participating in style challenges on Instagram. This led to my becoming a brand rep/ambassador as well as hosting my own style challenges!
Fashion has always played a large role in my life! The love of my life is my Russian Blue cat Noah Houdini Hitchcock! I love old black and white movies and have a great respect for strong, bold women like Bette Davis, Meryl Streep and Angelina Jolie.
My motto is “Say what you mean,and mean what you say”!
The most important thing in life is family, everything else can be replaced!
Our sincere thanks to our new friend Margo, for sharing brave story of loss and survival. We appreciate that you trust our tribe enough to share this very personal experience, and hope you will inspire others along the way.
