60 and Fashionable!

Mummy Romantique and Rebel


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!

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?

    How refreshing to see so many more mature women being so chic and stylish! I find great inspiration in your zest and energetic posts, keep up the fabulous blog!
    I promote the idea of style not having an age restriction and firmly believe one should dress for a body type and not according to age, although we make a few adjustments to the amount of flesh exposed and length of skirts, there is no reason to retire your style merely because we get older!
