I do get ideas of how pieces work together from these pictures however I have to agree with the previous comments. Please work with your demographic!

I agree with casperleslie about age-appropriate of some of the items. However, when I went to nautica.com to see the shorts in slide #17, I couldn't find the same ones. So, we also need more information on where to get the few items we do like!

More is for women 40 and above. These clothing styles are modeled by very young women and the styles are age appropriate for them, and very, very, very few women 40 and above. Please show us the denim looks that would work for most of us, your subscribers.
