What's your style?

I'm watching some morning show. It's 2 women discussing fashion. One "fashion faux pas" I guess is that "older women wear clothing that's age-inappropriate" and ... basically, if you're older, wear "older" clothing. not dowdy or frumpy, but "age appropriate". Don't dress like you're chasing lost youth. And "if you're wearing the same jeans as your 14 year old, you've got a problem".

What are your opinions on this??

Quite frankly, I was very offended hearing this. First, if you're old enough to have a 14 year old daughter and you CAN wear the same jeans (size wise).... it's a very good thing!!

And if they meant style only (not size)... I feel you should wear what you like, what you're comfortable in, what looks good on you. Who bloody cares what "fashion" is, or what "age-appropriate" is.

But then maybe I'm just wierd
I love blue jeans, tshirts. flannel shirts. ankle/floor length skirts. Lace. Leather. Ethnic clothes. Peasant blouses. And I love pockets. No idea why. Carpenter jeans. Fishing vest. Even found a pair of panties with pockets had to buy them cuz they were just too cool.

I'll surely never win a fashion contest But i'm happy. Though I have received positive responses numerous times.

Oh: and I'm not really "watching" the show. I'm actually watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail Just had to stop it for a minute, thereby catching the show.

Again, Happy Birthday! *hug* What kind of cake do you want? Chocolate? Cheesecake? Lemon merengue pie? Special brownies?

Unfortunately, first impressions do count for a lot, and most of it is visual... 65% of it! That's why when I know I'm meeting someone for the first time I take extra care about my appearance. Once that's been done, however, I can be more of myself.

Hmmm... I'm gonna raid your closet one of these days

I dress in clothes that make me comfortable.... blue jeans and T-shirts, or polos... I don't really think about how old or young it makes me look. Of course when I am going out for a night on the town... I dress up and try and look my casual... but best.

Well Maybe I'm weird too! I like the pockets too. At 42 I shop at the mall clothes stores for cargo shorts! I love em! There great for camping & all summer stuff!
Jeans T-shirts & leather jackets are just classic!

Panties with pockets? Wow, what do you put in those pockets? Hands??? lol...

Happy Birthday, DSK.

I don't pay any attention to the rules of style. I judge a woman's clothes by how much fun I think I would have getting her out of them.

Once I went out shopping wearing the Hakama I got for kendo... You should've seen all the people who just stared at me. ^_^

And you didn't invite me over to watch Holy Grail? (Probably by far the movie I've seen the most times.)

I've never followed fashion, either. I wear what is comfortable.

If you look good, and feel good, wear it. Anything less is a faux pus!

i wear what makes me feel comfortable i think dressing to meet a sterotype is bad, we are suppossed to be living in a land of free choice but ever notice how many people are trying to force everyone into what they think is appropraite
*hugs and giggles*

If you want me just whistle....
you do know how to whistle don't you?

I say that most fashions for the younger folk are strange anyway but you should always wear what you like. Don't say "ni" to those who have a problem with it though... that would just be strange if you're not a Briton without a shrubbery

Deal! There's only one blouse you can't borrow, only 'cause I haven't worn it anywhere yet. That and the vinyl dress anything else, feel free to try on.
