We all have to age -- but I'm going to do it in great clothes! And I think many of you agree with me. Getting older doesn't mean housedresses or frumpy styles anymore. When I got an email from one of our loyal viewers asking to show great age-appropriate clothing for the mature woman I got right on it.

My search led me to a terrific little boutique, in . Bonni's is tucked into the middle area of the center and is adjacent to a 35-year Valley landmark, Jewels by G. Darrell Olson. In fact, to enter the boutique you walk through the beautiful jewelry store. This adds to its charm and atmosphere. Once inside it feels like a great little find.

Bonni, the owner is usually there and will help you with advice and honest opinions. And if you're looking for something special she'll do everything she can to make it happen. She'll even close down the store for a private shopping party.

Bonni's Boutique showcased in our fashion segment:

First up were Sue and Bonni each wearing Sassy Thai embellished denim Capris. Sue topped hers with a soft green tee made from soybeans and bamboo from Colorado Trading Co. Her sandals are from Cha Cha and pick up the flower motif on her Capri pants. Bonni was in the same Capri but in white and with a different top, in hot pink from Belldini.

Maren showed a tailored cuffed Capri from Solange that sports a unique look; the cuff has cufflinks of rhinestone on the back for that special detail.

She added a 2-piece set from Belldini in beautiful hues of blue. The tank has wide straps so you can wear it without its matching cardigan. Maren carried a black clutch bag that also has a shoulder strap. It boasts its own bling in a subtle way to pull this great outfit together. Her mini heels and jet jewelry are from Bonni's and makes her totally ready for a fun night out to the theatre or dinner.

Mary, the envy of every Rhinestone cowgirl, Mary has on black jeans from Sassy Thai. The pockets are blinged as well as the sides and her jeans have just a hint of stretch in them for a comfortable fit. A soft jersey top matches the rhinestone design found on the jeans. Mary's Jewelry also comes from Jewels by G. Darrell Olson and we can definitely call her a lady who sparkles.

Bonni was back to wear a pair of black Capris and a cami top teamed a great sheer jacket with a bit of Asian flavor. It's beautifully embroidered with a white flower-like design.

This is easy elegance defined!
