On July 26th, the networking group Over 40 Females™ had a Beauty & Fashion meet at Boutique on 57.

Over 40 Females was founded in 2010 by Judy Goss, a former More Magazine Editor and also National TV Spokesperson for More. It was created to allow women to have a platform to be heard, to network and encourage, with the motto "Connect, Encourage and Inspire" for women everywhere. Since the Fall of 2011, eight chapters have been established, and the movement is spreading rapidly nationwide.

Not just another networking group, Over 40 Females has gotten their members press awareness, jobs, a $25,000 scholarship, business connections, nationwide speaking opportunities, education, friendships, confidence, luxurious pampering and much more.

Since Spring of 2012, Over 40 Females has been seen on: NBC, CBS, News 12, Huffington Post, Westport Magazine, Bella Magazine (coming out July 2012) and numerous newspapers and blogs.
