I have just uploaded a new photo of m'self. I don't often have photos taken as I tend to be the photographer around here, but this one is ok. I do look a bit manic as I was saying 'sausages' in an attempt to look smiley, whilst telling my son to hold the camera straight.
I needed a photo for a questionnaire that I filled in about over 40's fashion. They are making a tv programme and wanted people to contribute. I am always up for something interesting so I thought it would be fun to apply. As an over 40 year old woman I agreed with the article that I read by Mary Portas in The Telegraph that fashion for us tends to be somewhat dull..How true! I would love to be able to afford lots of expensive gorgeous stuff, or have the imagination to buy 'vintage' or make my own. But I don't.
I am stuck with high street shops that either cater for girls of about 15 or for rich old ladies.I just want something a bit funky for everyday wear, that doesn't cost a fortune.Just because a girl is over 40 does not mean she is dull, dead and dreadful. No. We are sassy sexy and super! God! That's a lot of alliteration for a Thursday night... Mary Portas has huge experience in retail and even if I don't get on the telly I will watch her show with interest.If anyone can do something about this issue - its her!
What do you think? Are you bored by clothes on offer? I love shopping for clothes, but am not very good at it!! Should you start wearing beige once you're of a 'certain age'?? I say NO!!!
