I might be 56 years old, but I absolutely love my bling! I am also so confident in myself that I love the way I dress. I dress and wear my bling according to me and only me. There are so many fun fashions out there for every age. For ever it seems that once a person reached a certain age, pretty much 40, fashion needed to change. It was then time for orthopedic shoes, knit pants with an elastic waist, and lose tops. Guess what, no more!
Fashion now is so fun! The thing is you don’t have to be a bling person to enjoy it. I admit, I am not the 5’2, 110 lb person I was in the last two years of school, I have bloomed, no doubt. But that’s age. I know I am over weight, but yet I do what I am supposed to do to stay healthy. So for me, at this age, that’s what matters. Meanwhile, I love my wardrobe. Ok, so I do open up my closet door and say, “I have nothing to wear!” It’s packed with clothes, HA!
I know I am doing something right in my attire when I have both women and men ask me where I shop. One of the guys at work one day stopped me and asked “Where do you get your clothes? You always look so nice and I love the way you dress.” This was not a “hit” on me, as this man is very loyal to his wife. This was something that he really wanted to know to pass on to his wife. (He wasn’t fond of her wardrobe) My hairdresser, who is in her 20’s always compliments me on my clothes when I go in to get my haircut. The cool thing is she also goes on to say how cute my Mom always looks when she comes in, which is every Friday. My Mom is 86 years old, and could put many younger women to shame when it comes to fashion! The woman has it going on! I absolutely love buying new accessories for her! She matches them up perfectly with her wardrobe. My Mom and I also have another fashion love in common…our boots. Oh how we love our boots! I have tons! High heel to low heel, high top to ankle. I will never give them up. That’s yet another thing I have going on at work, one of the guys calls me “Boots”. He actually notices if I have a new pair on.
I am no means bragging here. Well, maybe a tiny bit, only because I am flattered. But because it feels good to be complimented on the way we dress as women after 50. I am a true believer in, “Just because it comes in your size, doesn’t mean you should wear it.” #peopleofwalmart. But if it is in good taste, and you feel comfortable, who cares what the “rules, or others” say. Be yourself, express yourself, it’s not about them, it’s about you, break the rules! I dare you… 😉
Love, Hugs, Peace, & Roars,
