We may run and work out or diet endlessly, but we have different shapes now. Our more rounded curves and softer coloring require we put a little more thought into our wardrobe choices. So I launched this site to share what I continue learning in this life stage.
Mr. Mickey, my adventure partner since 2006, usually plans our outings and wants to take pictures of everything we do to share with you. He is very proud of this project and enjoys sharing every date with you on the blog.
My career in the fashion industry began in 1976, working part-time in the Visual Merchandise Department at Parks Belk. Within a year, I was promoted to the Visual Merchandise Manager of three Parks Belk Department Stores. After serving four years in the United States Navy, I held the position of Corporate Director of eight Cosmetic Departments for Rices Nachman’s Department Stores and the District Manager of a chain of boutiques.
As the editor of the blog Fifty, not Frumpy and now Susan After 60, I share tips, trends, and wardrobe ideas for women of all ages but especially those who, like me, have become fashion-challenged over the years. We may lose touch with our style after working endless hours or devoting our lives to children or aging parents.
Thank you for reading and sharing my blog with your friends. Contact information is never sold or transmitted other than to announce winners of giveaways. Likewise, email addresses are never published.
I am retired now, so my randomly shared posts are never paid promotions, and I do not accept gifts. However, I often share shoppable links for similar items since my things are rarely new. Those links may allow me to earn a small commission at no additional cost to you.
