THIS IS 40: Let's Do This!


It's been exactly one year since I made an open call to women in their 40s (and beyond) who owned their personal style but weren't necessarily fashion blogger types. I was pleased to get a number of responses, and then I dropped the ball. There are loads of reasons for said ball dropping, and not one of them make for an interesting conversation. I'll spare you the excuses, and the apologies. Instead, I will pick my scabby self up, and do my best to offer up my part of a hopefully, very lively conversation.


Hopefully late is better than never: we're resuming the series, and plan to facilitate more diverse and varied portraits of style loving women in their forties. 

Check back next Tuesday for the next installment of: THIS IS 40.

If you know a stylish +40 woman who should be featured, please share her with us!

Hooray for 40+ bloggers who love style and aren't Dead Yet (shameless plug) : o

That said, I wouldn't peg you as 40 yet, by your youthful energy and style. xox

It's a public service to fight ageism in our society. Individuals are individuals no matter how old they are and most of us become more interesting as we acquire more life-experience. Good effort, buddy.

You should call it This is 40 - and then some.

Sheila said...

Love it! 40 is long in my rearview mirror, though, so I like "and then some".

Monica P said...

Yeah, bring it on .. as I'll be out of my 40's way too soon :-P

Oh Goodie, I like this idea.

and such a stylish free thinking gem you are Bella. There is no time limit for creativity so you just do what you want when you want it. I'd say you have a pretty big pool of awesome 40+ peeps:)

You seem to just keep finding ways to make us stay young at heart and have done doing it! Your the awesomous of the 40's club. I'll keep my thinking cap on for those 40 something gals I truly admire. As for myself, well I'm also in that 50's club. Next year, girlfriend, I'm already thinking of some way to get us all together to wlecome you into this fantastic club!

I was surprised by your age, even tho' I think I knew it. You are just lively, lovely spark of fiery spirit, intellect, and beauty to me.
