About

It’s not about age, it’s about style. And this is for every woman who refuses to be invisible. Alyson Walsh.

I’m a freelance journalist, former magazine fashion editor and author. That’s Not My Age began in 2008, when I noticed a space online to celebrate women of all ages.

That’s Not My Age was winner of the Best Women’s Fashion Blog 2019 at Vuelio’s Online Influence Awards.
