as a woman of a certain age

I think that this is what I will probably look like (minus the cigarette):

C'est vrai, toi, c'est plutôt la pipe!

not a bad way to look as a 'mature lady'...
Reminds me of a photo of British literary critic Lorna Sage - leather satchels are clearly a desirable aesthetic feature

I can't quite see the photo of Lorna Sage to tell. Is she an older lady?

pyapstreet: The parts of Renata's look that I identify with are her pigtails, the across-the-chest-slung bag, dark-rimmed glasses, clunky shoes and cuffed jeans. Well into my 30s, this is an ensemble that is a regular part of my wardrobe. Some days, I get a little self-conscious wondering if I've outgrown this girlish look. It's nice to see someone older than me pull this off in what I see as defining her personal style.
