Welcome to The O Report, my chic look at life for women and men 50 and up. I started this website because now that I’m in my 50s, I want for myself what I want for everyone: to look and feel the best I can no matter what my age is going forward.

I don’t have all the answers, but I know the people who do! I’ll be sharing information from experts in Beauty, Fashion, Health and Style.  In the People section, you’ll find profiles of women I find inspiring. All those categories are also covered in the Men section. The Buzz section is a place for upcoming events and trending news. The Social section covers parties, fundraisers and galas. And the Life section has tips and trends on three topics that bring joy: Finances & Assets, Pets and Travel.

The website’s motto is Stay Chic for women, and Stay Cool for men — a reminder for us all that through every stage of our lives we can strive to be smart, elegant and stylish. I want this to be a fun, upbeat place for readers to learn something new or see something beautiful. Please let me know what you think by emailing me at olivia@oliviafortson.com.

Stay Chic! Stay Cool!
