We are a group of friends who love to get together with Rose, the wonderful friend we all have in common. She and her sweet husband Jerry, recently invited all of us along with our significant others over for brunch. I'm so glad my dear Mickey took this picture of us standing on the steps. (When you live on a hillside at the lake, you have lots and lots of steps.) This picture speaks to me on many levels. We are all vibrant healthy attractive normal women from all walks of life and in many stages of life. This is a true picture of women. Why do the 2% that are twenty something, perfectly thin, tall and stunningly beautiful represent all of us in catalogs and magazines? I believe that the day a company decides to use real people in their advertising, their business will skyrocket. I celebrate women who have fun with current styles and yet still maintain their dignity and present a confident appearance that turns heads at any age.
One of the greatest things about this stage of our lives is that we now have some time to get comfortable with who we are, being with friends sharing laughter and the stories of our lives. Whether you are my Facebook friend or one who lives down the street, I'm so grateful to have you in my life.
The style sets that I create on Polyvore are wildly popular. A few of the sets are shown below. Visit FiftynotFrumpy to see more and to find out where all these elements can be purchased.
My blog and Facebook page (Fifty, not Frumpy) are dedicated to women who might be over fifty but are still having fun with fashion and enjoying life. Here's to you beautiful ladies! May the second half of your life be even more fulfilling and exciting than the first.
Thanks for reading!
