Inspirational Women: Bridget Sojouner

Bridget Sojouner on the Plus Black blog

Love this look on Bridget Sojouner seen on Advanced Style yesterday.

She is such a positive representative of how to age with style.  Would that we might all look so good at her age, clothed – mostly – from charity shops!

If you haven’t seen her before, Bridget was one of the women featured in the recently televised (UK Channel 4) Fabulous Fashionistas documentary.  What a treat that was. Do catch it if you can.

In the Advanced Style narrative, Bridget is quoted as saying that ageism is the last bastion of prejudice in our society.  I would beg to differ as I believe that disabilism is a far more firmly entrenched prejudice.

Of course there’s no real way of measuring either but, hopefully, Bridget and I will be around to welcome accommodation on both as our society ages over the next few decades.
