Welcome to une femme d’un certain âge!

My name is Susan, and I’m 59, married, and a mother to a special-needs young adult son. I recently left my full-time administrative career, and am looking forward to this next chapter in my life. I love (in no particular order): coffee, Paris, travel, my family, my dogs, wearing black, leopard print, dancing, good food, lipstick, finding the perfect pair of shoes, jazz, costume dramas, champagne, and books about history.

I believe that personal style is an essential form of self-expression and started this blog in 2007 in hopes of having a conversation about style for our demographic, which no one else seemed to be addressing at the time. I’m delighted to say that’s changed since then, and unefemme.net is now only one of many, many fabulous style blogs and websites for women over fifty. (Check out Daily Reads tab for links.)

Topics have expanded to include travel, travel wardrobes, and living our best life at any age.
