She’s hip, she’s happening and she’s one of the most inspiring fashion bloggers we’ve come across in a long time. Meet 80-year-old Dorrie Jacobson who is the uber stylish face of Senior Style Bible – a blog celebrating the “unmistakable allure of the mature woman.”
Dorrie who hails from LA writes on her blog: “Our goal is to inspire “women of a certain age” to embrace an ageless attitude and adopt a more youthful outlook on life. Times have changed, mature fashionistas are now refusing to sink from sight in a sea of blue rinse and fluffy slippers. Recently, we have noticed a growing movement that is shifting to embrace older beauty. In a youth oriented culture, the mature woman is finally being celebrated.”
Dorrie says she’s regularly stopped by a stranger complimenting her on what she’s wearing. It’s hardly surprising when you see her style.
She says: “It’s incredibly flattering to be noticed by complete strangers, male and female, of all ages. It reinforces my belief that style is much more than just what we wear, it’s an attitude.
“I’ve always been of the belief that as we get older, it’s important to have a signature style that is modern, fashionable and most importantly, still turns heads. My heart still skips a beat when I spy something I adore. If fashion has the power to do that, I’m happy to grow old, as long as I can do it looking great.”
We think Dorrie looks amazing. Take a look at a few of our favourite pics of her below.
