That's Not My Age
Well, hello. After two full years of blogging, I thought it was about time I finally introduced myself. So, here I am - out from behind the dashboard. When I started this malarkey it was the done thing to remain anonymous, but times have changed. And I've been putting this off for long enough (mainly because I wasn't quite sure how to go about it, and also, I don't like having my photo taken). So, here goes: my name is Alyson. I'm a freelance fashion and lifestyle journalist and an academic. I was fashion editor of a well-known women's magazine for many years but now the majority of my work is online. Which is how That's Not My Age came about.
These pictures were taken by my lovely friend Dvora at Fashionistable, an excellent photographer with a very strong vision. Yes, she really did make me stand in the middle of a very busy road for this next shot - as you can imagine, I much preferred sitting on the bench. Mr That's Not My Age says I look like I'm wearing the pedestrian crossing but I'd just like to point out that it's actually my new favourite dress by A.L.C., a prized stake-out from the Liberty sale.
Talking of stripes, have you seen the French football team's new Breton-style away kit? C'est fantastique:
PS I washed my hair especially!
