No list of top fashion blogs for women over 50 would be complete without mentioning Jennifer Connolly, a California-based Certified Image Consultant who initially started blogging to complement her work. While fashion blogs for mature women were fairly rare when she started five years ago, now the field is burgeoning, she says. “We’re the new fashion magazine for women our age,” Connolly says. “I started my blog to assist women online with free advice that I was charging my real life clients. There’s nothing out there in print for our age. It’s logical for it to end up on the internet.”
Susan Blakey was ahead of the curve, you might say, in launching her blog, Une Femme d’um Certain Age, after noting the absence of conversation about style for women over 50. Susan’s style exudes a Paris sensibility. She looks effortlessly chic, with that air of confidence that comes with knowing who you are and not trying to impress everyone. Her fashion blog has expanded to include travel wardrobes and destinations. Escape with Susan and embrace her joie de vivre.
