Over 50 Blogger Spotlight:Mispapelicos

Personal style blogs aren’t just for the young, in fact their is a whole world of over 50 bloggers, proving that personal style really does advance with age. These women have the experience to know what they feel comfortable in the willingness to share their treasured style secrets withthe rest of the world. I asked Sacramento from mispapelicos.blogspot.com for her fashion and style tips. Check out our interview below:

How do you feel age affects fashion?
To me age is just a number, and shouldn’t´t affect your own style at all.

What is your style advice for older women stuck in a rut?
-Get rid of the comfy pants and t-shirt, they are a deadly trap…
-Look at yourself in the mirror, cherish the way you look, and build from there.
– Be daring rather than boring.-
-Every woman knows what suits her and what type of clothes makes her feel wonderful. Most of the time, they cannot be bothered.-
-It is never too late to find your own style. Look deep within and let it come out freely.

Can you share any of your style secrets?
I always dress for myself, and to inspire those who cross my path.

-I would like to think that my style is quirky rather than smart; with the knowledge to distinguish the thin line between quirky and clown.

Sacramento in her own words:
I am An English- Spanish teacher and Nutritionist who has been madly in love with fashion all her life.I see fashion as a means of self expression through clothes.
I have been keeping notes and cut-outs in notebooks, (that´s why the name of my blog: MIS PAPELICOS – my little papers or cut-outs) for as long as I can remember.
Last 7Th of April , I decided to go a step forward by starting my own blog.

  • Sacramento is one of my favourites, she is such a stylish inspiration and a truly lovely person, too. If I had half of her creativity I'd be a happy girl. xxx

  • SHE is so AMAZING! I type this in all caps because her style and spirit make me want to yell. She is full of life, and you can tell lives her life fully. It shows in her sartorial choices. LOVE what she wears but even more so HOW she wears it. A true fashion maverick and icon.

  • thanks for introducing me to her blog, she has really fun style and I'm glad she hasn't eschewed colors as so many women seem to do as they get above 50.
    I think it's a good point she makes about comfy clothes being a trap. I read a Tim Gunn interview where he said that not being 100% comfortable is how good clothes should be; he means that in the real world we must be at least a little alert to our surrounding and that we would be too comfortable for alertness if we all wore pjs everyday.
    thanks again

  • ps: is it just me, or are a lot of your muses involved in both fashion and nutrition? I imagine the two are connected to the sense of youthful buoyancy your "models" usu. portray

  • Thanks a lot for this marvelous post.I am honoured.
    You are wonderful Ari.
    Un abrazo siempre.
