Quote of the week: Daphne Selfe


Good to see Daphne Selfe in the December issue of Red magazine. The 85-year-old model was also in conversation at the Mirror Mirror conference last week (write up coming soon, promise) and her comment on ageing made me smile:

'Growing old is compulsory, growing up is optional.'


Hear, hear.

What a woman! That photo is stunning and I love her quote. Can't wait to read your post.

Did you recently mention problems with your site? I am still receiving the malware warning each time I visit your blog (following through Bloglovin).

Lady of Style - yes, I had Malware problems but that was all cleared by Google over a week ago. I've asked the experts, and any remaining problems are down to 'clearing your cache.' I'm a bit of a Luddite but think that means you have to clear the history on your computer (?)

Lovely photo and quote. She's definitely my role model - I'd love to be just like her in 20 years' time!

Wow! She just has the best hair!

Three years ago I had a troll commenting that "long hair at your age did you no favours at all". I was all of 44!
I bet they're combusting with rage at Daphne.

Daphne looks marvellous and it was amazing to be at the Mirror Mirror conference with all those amazing women present. I have tried to email you Alyson, but it bounced back.

Wonderful quote. Will get the magazine.

A variation on the great quote:

You can only be young once, but you can always be immature.

I try to follow this religiously!

Elle said...

I love that she's kept her hair long as well...nearing 50 and wondering if I should cut my long hair - she's an encouragement to just keep it. I love the outfit on her as well!

Valerie said...

Great photo - she looks so vibrant and love the outfit!

V Rising - my inbox was full, please try again!

Anne - yes, I'm going to make it my mantra.
