I’m a fifty-something girl who writes personal fashion blog focused on vintage clothes. I can’t be the only woman in the world over fifty who loves vintage clothes, can I? Women my age grew up eyeing the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Kennedy. We yearned for the day when we might wear the clothes that eventually made them icons. Today is that day.
I’m thrilled that contemporary women have made vintage hip again. Thank goodness the fashion world is not the exclusive domain of youth! I have worn vintage clothes and accessories all of my adult life. And still do. Age has nothing to do with relevance, especially when it comes to people and fashion.
I just want to have fun with my clothes without looking ridiculous, which is exactly how you look when you dress like you don’t know and love who you are. I’ve already been 20, 30 and 40. What interests me now is how to be admirably stylish when I’m 60, 70, 80 and, if I’m lucky, beyond. How about you? I hope you will enjoy browsing my vintage collection and exchanging ideas about books, fashion and life after 50.
