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 that 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 now shaped differently. 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 picks 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.
