The fashion blogosphere has been built on the stilettos of cute young gals who are putting up photos of themselves on the Internet and sharing their style with the world. One of my favorites is my former intern who has the Classic Case (and who I love to get fashion inspiration from.)
This real-girl vibe is one of the things that has kept the mainstream throngs so involved in all aspects of fashion. But until recently, you'd have trouble finding women our age posting photos of the things they are wearing.
So I did a little digging and found some great examples of what-I-wore type blogs for grown-ups. Most of these have an eye to budget and thrifting (confession: My niece has me hooked on thrifting and we scored mint condition colorblock suede skirts for $5 last weekend.)
Here's what I found
- Not Dead Yet Style This 50-something blogger is relatively new to posting her pics online (from April 2011) but I like her motto: "We are not dead yet, so let's enjoy every sandwich and gild the lilies." Her style is perfect office-ready wear with a stylish twist: great for professional women over 50.
- She Accessorizes Well - This self-professed "plus-size Baby Boomer" loves accessories (me, too!) and has a cute way of mixing blouses and jackets that look updated and age appropriate. She's also got an eye for thrifting and bargains, which is great for most of us.
- Silverstyle - A blogger who likes to take on trends (like the maxi) and interpret them to make them age appropriate and budget friendly.
- Making 50 Fabulous - - A costume designer and blogger with an eye to bargains and thrifting. She has a cute, playful style and it's fun to see what she's put together each day.
