Over the past few weeks, I have noticed a surge in a particular type of article and it makes me unhappy. Now, don’t get me wrong, I used to enjoy watching “The Fashion Police”, just like anyone else, mostly because I got to see pretty outfits and dresses and not really because of the hosts/”experts”. However, I have now found myself so very tired of articles that wags fingers and opine, “Don’t wear if you’re over (insert number here) age”. This piece or type of clothing or that shoe or this item for your hair. More than once, I have asked myself if I should just grow up and “dress my age”. And then I slap myself and come to my senses.
Oh, please! Fashion changes, CONSTANTLY! What makes you or anyone an expert on what I or anyone else should wear? Where’s the personal preference or taste? We may disagree with what people choose to wear but, ultimately, we do not have a say in anything but our own I am a grown woman, I will be 32 years old in two months, and I am fully capable of making my own decisions. If I like it, watch me rock it (see below)!
This article, though, has some excellent advice, which I think is quite apropos and awesome: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michelle-combs/what-not-to-wear-after-ag_b_6656902.html?ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000063 ^_^ *climbs down from soapbox*
