|New Years Eve 2013. We range in age from|
ages 70 to 80. Posing is the key here.
I should not have stood at an angle to my
friend dressed in red.
But please don't think that I can't afford to buy something that is stylish or even practical for everyday. But I just think that those stores we depend on for our knock about clothing could do better. As it is now, I can find something that looks good on me but it is very expensive.
I want a knit top that has a slightly raised neckline at the back to cover the beginning of a dowager's hump. I have had these in the past and they are wonderful. I want my tops and sweaters to have some gathers at the side seam to give a loose top some fit. I don't want a scoop neck that goes below the cleavage but I would like a little bit of a scoop. I love long skirts. I don't want them at the ankle because it simply is not safe. I also want some choices in a skirt that is fitted and hits just at the mid-calf. A gray pencil skirt would be nice.
|Dressing to show some shape in the winter|
is hard. I may have pulled it off here but
I am not sure. Thoughts?
|NOOOOO...all white is not good and the pose|
is just not right! I need to practice more.
|Dark colors seem to work best and|
compliment my totally white hair.
Doggone it, it is hard enough getting older but when the fashion world ignores anyone over 60, I don't think they are being smart. Is the only way a woman my age can buy beautiful clothes to pay a fortune? The boomers are here and trust me, these women are not going to buy ugly and they are not going to spend more than they can afford! There I said it!
