About

Headshot 0614
I’m fifty-seven, married to the same wonderful Monsieur since 1995, the mother of a special-needs teenager and two hooligan dogs, a full-time administrative professional, a coffee-holic, Paris-obsessed, native Californian, and a petite and curvy femme d’un certain age. 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 Une femme d’un certain age is now only one of many, many fabulous style blogs and websites for women over fifty.
