I've just been over to see what joyful Melanie of bag and a beret fame is up to, she always cheers me up and delights me. But, guess what, the frumpy style police have given her a drubbing. What! How dare they! Don't they know that fun and fashion belong together? What a lot of piffle they talk. I'm thinking of starting a title, STYLE OVER SEVENTY. I've put in the years, I'm all fired up,
I'll put on my rose-tinted spectacles
and wear WHATEVER-THE-HELL I like!
I so enjoy the colour of the coat that a daughter bought me for Christmas that when I saw these reading glasses I had to buy them.
The frames were very inexpensive, but the prescription lenses, which I need in order to see anything at all, were eye-wateringly expensive - such are the trials of seeking a rose-tinted life!
I offer the dvd of Iris as a suitable response to the style police with their belittling and ignorant remarks about exuberant dressing and intelligence.
Her specs are far bigger than mine!
I'm a rather plain dresser myself but it doesn't mean that I don't enjoy creativity and a bit of dottiness in others. I wear a lot of black, white and grey. This Wallis dress is about thirty years old - I hope it never wears out!
I've commented before on bloggers whom I consider young and their concerns about wrinkles, age-appropriate dressing and so forth. There are better things to bother about. Aim to be healthy and happy and then, dear ladies, you will be beautiful!
