About Fifty, not Frumpy

Fifty, not Frumpy started on Facebook  on July 16, 2011 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 celebrated out fiftieth birthdays. 

When I started this blog I had just lost more than forty pounds and was in the process of buying a new wardrobe when I discovered it isn't as easy or as much fun as you might think.

We may run and workout or diet endlessly but the fact is our midlife 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 its 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 on this fun journey through this second half of our lives.
