These days, you don’t have to go far to find books, blogs, and TV shows telling older women what to wear. My focus is different; I am interested in what real American women over fifty have worn since the beginning of the twentieth century until today. I am hoping to document the whole country, in all of its geographic, racial, and ethnic diversity. You can help! Please send photos, with stories to go with them, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contact meTo contribute to this collective history project, send pictures and stories about the older women in your life to email@example.com. The more information you can include (date, place, etc.), the better.
