My Son is Gay & Fabulous! Accepting Your Children For Who They Are

As parents we should not be the disparager, we should be the guarantor. Learning to accept your children for who they are — and who they will become — is one of the greatest gifts we can empower them with.

The Silver Years (Admit, It We’re Getting Old)

How the hell did this happen? It’s time to fess up and own being in our “Silver” years.

Keeping your cool when the political climate makes you want to blow your top

Suggestions, in no particular order, to help us all get through these tough times without totally blowing our cool.

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.

In Praise of the Caftan

Review: Foot-Exfoliating Baby Feet Booties

Have you ever been curious about home foot-exfoliating peels? We went in the trenches for you, so you can find out if this is for you! (Spoiler alert: 100% worth it)

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.
