Fashion isn’t only for skinny girls in their twenties. With our blog, Rebel (aged 42) and myself (aged 34) want to show that you can have fun and be fashionable well beyond your twenties and size zero. We inherited our love of fashion from our mum, aged 62, who introduced us to the world of well made garments, precious fabrics and beautiful details. My earliest memories of fashion are of raiding my mum’s wardrobe and tottering around in her high heels.
Ari Cohen dedicates his popular blog, Advanced Fashion, to eccentric, older ladies who love style and fashion. While I adore the quirkiness and life lust of these ladies, I’m not sure I’d like to dress so outlandishly once I’m in my twilight years! My role model will be my mum, who dresses fashionably and trendily without being over the top. Understatement and style always win!
Our mum is wearing: White summer sandals with comfy foot bed from Prada. Fruit print trousers from Riani, orange t shirt from Esprit and dark green sunglasses from Chloe. Green Foot Nail varnish from Dior.

Do you have an “older” fashion role model, a person’s whose style you admire and you’d wish you’d look like that person when you’re older? Is it your mum, an aunt or a celebrity?
