Amuse Bouche (ˈä-ˌmüz-ˈbüsh): literally translated into “mouth amuser”. Wikipedia definition: a single, bite-sized hors d’oeuvre.
Jodie’s use of the term: a small hint or clever tip! (Think Hints from Heloise!!) Or today: Discussion!
The question, “Is this what a 70 year old would wear?” is what my mother asked me a few months ago while we were trying on clothes for one of my posts.
It really got me thinking: why shouldn’t an older women wear this or that? The 2 grey haired women featured above is how I imagined fashion used to be for an “old” lady! Yet the young beauty is wearing the same type of clothes, right? A dress, knee highs & shoes!
I think society is finally giving some worth to the older generations and I think it’s our responsibility (as the older generation) to show pride and confidence in whatever age we happen to be! Wearing “age appropriate” clothes is, in my opinion (and many of my peers), a thing of the past. Nowhere I shop do I see clothing that is labelled “40 year old”, “50 year old”, etc…It’s about having clothes that are body appropriate & event appropriate. To continue to get the respect we deserve (since we have so much life experience), I think it’s important to look contemporary. Would you trust someone’s opinion on computers if they still only used a typewriter?
How do you look contemporary? One easy way is fit! I think one of my pet peeves is women wearing pants that are too big especially in the rear area. I realize many of us older women do not want “tight” clothes, but if the pants are rumply in the rear, it looks sloppy. And sloppy does not portray brains & beauty, which we ALL have!
Even if you’re not there yet, what do you want to wear when you’re 70? Have I styled my mom (the 70’s model) in any clothing on this blog that seems inappropriate (I’m wondering because I hear the words “I would never wear that together” more that you think)? Tell me, because maybe you’re right & I’m wrong!
Thanks for reading & especially commenting! This week the color yellow is the main star!
