Biography

We may run and workout or diet endlessly, but the fact is we have different shapes now. Our more rounded curves and softer coloring require that we put a little more thought into our wardrobe choices. I launched SusanAfter60.com to share what I continue to learn in this stage of life.

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 here on the blog.

My career in the fashion industry began in 1976, working part-time in the Visual Merchandise Department at Parks Belk and within a year, 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 as well as 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, become fashion-challenged over the years. After working endless hours or devoting our lives to children or aging parents, we may lose touch with our style. Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it.

Thank you for reading and sharing my blog with your friends. Contact information is never sold or transmitted in any way other than to announce winners of giveaways. Email addresses are never published.

I no longer accept gifts, do product reviews or collaborations. The process became much too overwhelming to manage. My items are rarely new, so I share shopping links to similar current products, from which I may earn a small commission at no additional cost to you.

I blogged for five years as Fifty, not Frumpy. Now that I am in my sixties, I am sharing ideas and inspiration for using and loving what you already have.

Thank you!
Susan
