I began Fifty, not Frumpy as a Facebook page on July 16, 2011. It was a fun way to share my passion for style and my attempts to create outfits which are appropriate for those of us who are enjoying our second fifty years of life. When I started this blog I had recently 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 bodies are shaped differently now. Our more rounded curves and softer coloring require that we put a little more thought into our wardrobe choices. We may still dress like our daughters, but we need to make some adjustments so that our choices flatter us and remain appropriate. I share all the tips I have learned along the way, in hopes that it will help you find a style that serves you well.

Occasionally products are supplied to me by companies. I always disclose that fact within the body of the post and again at the bottom of the page. All styling and opinions are my own.
