finding beauty & style in life—not just in a closet


photographer unknown

“fashionbeginsat40” is a diary of my ongoing style journey, both inside and outside my closet. It’s a collection of visual images and written words, both mine and other people’s, that brings beauty and clarity to my life, and healing to my broken soul.

It’s a place where I can articulate the joy and pain that I’ve experienced in life, relationships and in my ongoing personal journey towards health and wholeness. A place where I can embrace all the things that I love – fashion, style, photography, art and poetry and use them as a means of expression to communicate.

Thank you for joining me in my journey. My hope is that my blog will inspire you to find beauty & style in life—not just in a closet, too.

Photography, painting or poetry – those are just extensions of me, how I perceive things; they are my way of communicating. —Viggo Mortensen
