About Fifty, not Frumpy

blogFifty, not Frumpy started on Facebook as a fun way to share my passion for fashion and my attempts to create outfits which are appropriate for those of us who have already celebrated our fiftieth birthday.

We may run and work out or diet endlessly but the fact is our mid-life body is shaped differently now. Our more rounded curves and softer coloring requires that we put a little more thought into our wardrobe choices. We can still dress like our daughters but we need to make some adjustments to our choices for them to still flatter us and be appropriate.

Here I’m wearing platform sandals by Vince Camuto with a mid-calf length loose fitting tank dress and a statement necklace that reminds me of nature in it’s design and texture. If I had a daughter she would likely wear a tighter shorter tank dress with these shoes and a cropped jean jacket instead of the Geiger boiled wool number that I’ve chosen.

This is an example of the outfits and tips I will share with you here on my blog. I’m glad you have joined me for this fun journey through this second half of our lives.
