If you’ve been following me on Instagram for a while, you’ve likely noticed that in the past few months, I’ve changed my focus. I now predominantly share fashion posts on my feed.
Why, you ask? Or maybe, why now?
As I’m turning 50 this year, my thoughts have turned to modelling, naturally! Kidding aside, I’ve always been interested in fashion and this is a way to express that creatively. Plus, I’m finding it super fun.
But I also see vacuum, and an opportunity.
Many of my 40 and 50-something-year-old friends and peers like to dress well and they have the means to do it. But fashion advertisers and marketers continue to disregard us. Even on social media, relatively few brands are speaking to those of us over 40.
Instead of simply complaining about it, I’m working on changing it. Those who know me know that I’m not afraid to take a risk and that I’m a firm believer that it's NEVER too late to try something new.
So, I've launched myself into the #styleatanyage space. Do I plan to make a living out of this? No. Do I hope to make something off of it? Yes. (I need to pay my photographer for starters!)
I hope that those who follow me enjoy the posts, get some inspiration, and perhaps even a laugh or two over what I write in the captions. To my supporters, thank you for your encouragement and for all your lovely comments. To my detractors, thank you even more: Nothing lights a fire under me more than hearing, “What dumb thing is she up to now?”
