Kim France Interview
“The idea was pretty recent: like this winter. Girls of a Certain Age became the name because there are a whole bunch of us in our 40s — I’m 48 — who are approaching adulthood in a different way than our mothers did. We’ve got big responsibilities, and lives and families, but occasionally still wish it was 1994 and we were at a Pavement show wearing a little X-Girl skirt and kicking back Rolling Rocks. At the same time, none of my friends are much into the whole “40 is the new 30!” thing. We’re all pretty pleased to have arrived at this moment, and clear on the fact that we don’t aspire to dress or act like we did a decade ago.”
“Well, part of it was my friends lobbying for me to start a blog. I’d be going off on one topic or another and they’d say “Kim, why don’t you WRITE about this?” Mostly I think they were just trying to shut me up. And they were right: I needed a venue. I started posting in December, and it was private: just a handful of friends and a few others. They were all immediately very supportive, and so I kept on going. In late February I decided to make it a real thing and hired a designer.”
“I took a big fat long break after I left the magazine, and it’s been wonderful to wake up to the real world again. I’ve been doing some writing pretty much the whole time, but I mostly just let myself do something I hadn’t done in a decade: chill out. I do miss being around talented and smart people all day, but I do not miss being an editor-in-chief. It’s a tough gig, and you have to really want to live that life. I had never set out to have a job like that. It was wild the way it happened, and I loved it, but it wasn’t, on some very fundamental level —me. And so, when it was taken from me, I felt less like I lost my identity than that I rediscovered it.”
