Zandra Rhodes

Zandra Rhodes is one of fashion’s most colorful characters, and her textile designs and bright aesthetic defined the 70s. She’s more relevant now than ever.

Overdressed? Psssh. Everyone else is UNDERdressed.

We live in a very judge-y world. But don’t be afraid to fly your fabulous old lady freak flag.

The Hidden Costs of Vanity

Instead of trying to fix what’s “wrong” with you, why not celebrate what’s RIGHT?

Tags: the bane of our existence.

Hey, fashion industry. STOP putting itchy tags in our clothes. Thanks. Love, OLS and women everywhere.

Introverts Unite (Separately, in Your Own Homes)

Exploring life as an introverted lady…bring on the solitude!

Recreating Yourself Post-40

Our lives are a work-in-progress. Life is short. Too short to not be true to yourself. And it’s not too late!

Just because we’re old doesn’t mean we know what the hell we’re doing!

The truth is, most of us are just fumbling our way through life, navigating without a map.

Women: Stop Saying “I’m Sorry”

We are natural apologizers. It’s in our DNA. We apologize for EVERYthing. And it’s time to knock that crap off.

What’s this all about?

The Eccentric Dames Society is here for middle-aged and older women who don’t fit the mold. We are here for for the rebels, the rule breakers, and the style-makers (and those who want to become any of those!) We are a new generation of “old” ladies; we aren’t afraid to admit that we’re old now, but we have to do it our way. We’ve made it this far. We have gained wisdom. We like comfy shoes (but that are still cute) and staying home (where we have clean bathrooms, unlimited booze and pets are allowed, and there are no assholes to deal with). We like to go out, but on our own terms, and when and where we choose. We don’t care what people think anymore. We’ve been there, done that. Now we are selective about who we see, what we do, and what we want, and we’re not even sorry about it. Our time is valuable, and we want to make the most of it — whatever that means to each of us. Welcome, rule breakers.
