Tonight I'm mulling mutton dressing as lamb. How old is too old to rehash some really successful looks of your youth? Must an almost-40-yo wear only sophisticated things, or can you stay with a more youthful vibe?
I'm a short woman, and I have a sweet face. (Think Mrs. Santa Claus, only with brown hair). Other short, sweetfaced women tend toward looking cute well into their post-menopausal years. There's an adorable woman at the school my children attend, she's even shorter than I am... she keeps her blonde hair dyed, cut pixie short, her makeup on, her heels high (not an option for me) and her hemlines mid-thigh. Does she look inappropriate? No. She looks cute as a bug.
Sometimes I'm good with that... sometimes I want to look more elegant.
But for when I don't... when I want to wear the cute clothes... is it weird? Am I too old? Or should I just relax and let the cute reign?
