A short black dress at 50?
The over 50 fashion police!!! Now I really find issue with the fact that over 50 we are subjected to such in the first place. Who do these people think they are to stereotype all women over 50 like we are clones,and not the individuals we should be allowed to remain. Geez, just because we happen to be born in the fifty's we must adhere to a sterner dress code? why do you think?
What if our legs still look as good as someone half our age? lets ask the fashion police if we may take this into consideration ..Its not bad enough we aren't suppose to have worn sleeveless anything for the past decade now we gotta lower our hemline..
I don't think so, at least I'm not giving in without a fight! How about you?
This is the deal.. some of us have short legs, now if you take a hemline past my knee, I look like my legs are missing! (this is what they want isn't it not to see old legs)..LOL
I am of the opinion that if you are comfortable showing your good looking legs and better yet if you have someone willing to be seen in public with you doing so ...why can we not wear it as if it were our own decision to make!
Age has taken as much as it has given to me over the years, and yes there was a time I turned heads when I walked in a room and OK.. not so much head turning going on at age 55 I'll admit.
I just don't think it is up to the over 50 fashion police to tell me that I no longer may turn a head because they want I should hide the little something worth looking at I have left to show off!
Lets face it did the men in my age group all go blind or fall off the face of the earth? Some of us women over 50 no longer have a partner in life. Could be we would like to let one know we are still spunky and fun enough we deserve a look.
I'm not ready to lower my hem line in everything I wear just yet. I am not positive it is really up to the over 50 fashion police to tell me when I am ready..
