About FAF: Fashion After 50 was started in 2008 to explore how older women can express our inner selves through fashionable clothes for older women.
The Fashion Archetype Quiz is inspired by the work of Jean Shinoda Bolen, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, and Carl Gustav Jung on how to live our lives with wholeness and by honoring our inner goddesses.
How to dress often becomes puzzling as we accommodate weight gain and other body changes -- as well as changes in our outlook and values.
It can be reassuring to learn that other women are challenged to know how to find clothes for older women that feel good and express who we are at this time in our lives.
You can read their stories and share your own on these pages:
You will find information about some of the books that inspired this site, both those from Jungian psychology and fashion, at Fashion Advice for Women in Books and Media.
This site is a work in progress, so do come back every once in a while to see what is new.
Fashion After 50 is a source of information -- an online fashion magazine.
The site publisher is a woman of a certain age, and this site is for us. How we dress can help us to feel happy and centered, or we can give up on finding clothes for older women.
The Fashion Archetype Quiz can be a fun way to tap back into thinking creatively about how to dress. But it doesn't work for everyone.
I have been pleasantly surprised at how often the quiz accurately identifies readers' inner selves -- though of course all of us have many inner goddesses and qualities.
There are lots of other pages to explore, such as basic wardrobe planning, bargain tips, and pages about the history of textiles and fabric and some of the clothes we wear.
Fashion After 50 does not manufacture or sell any clothing products. Here's where you can learn about the site's affiliate agreements and how it earns income so that it can afford to be online.
