|Full Spectrum +40: Our new +40 website, INTO THE VIOLET has launched!|
YOU ARE NOT INVISIBLE. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. I wrote these words when I created the first stand alone page for the +40 Blog Roll almost 4 years ago. You see, the blog roll had taken a life of its own, and had already outgrown my sidebar, and the post that I had written about it- so I gave it its own page. From the original handful of +40 fashion blogs, the roll is nearing 400, and I feel the need to give it a space where I can fully focus on the community that has sprung up from it- not just for women over 40, but for all women- who need to SEE that +40 is beautiful.
The +40 Blog Roll now has its own website: INTO THE VIOLET: FULL SPECTRUM +40
Although it's still in beta and very much a work in progress, I'd love for you to check it out, and please share it with your friends.
To celebrate the launch of the new +40 website, and to help raise funds for this project, I've created custom silicone ultraviolet bands, made courtesy of wristbands.net with the message that started it all: you are not invisible. you are beautiful. I've been wearing my custom UV wristband non-stop, and I love how I am reminded every time the band turns a deep violet purple, that just because I am over the age of forty, doesn't mean that I can't still have a positive cultural impact, and be joyfully present.
