I still got “it”, whatever “it” is. For some years now, I’ve been saying, I have everything I had when I was twenty. I just have an inch or two more of “it” and “it’s” and inch or two lower.
I can still fit into the same size jeans I have been wearing for ten years. Yes! They still fit, mostly, but they’re uncomfortable and ugly as sin; Oh yeah, and much, much snugger now than then. I can get them zipped, mostly, but the zipper is now completely untrustworthy. Oh well! They’re old any way! I should get rid them. I still love those elastic top sweat pants around the house, yeah! I’ve had those for the same ten years too. Sweat pants around the house will never go out of style.
Over the years, I’ve taught a lot of classes about “How to Dress for Success” or “How to pick the clothes that make you look thinner or younger”. And, I believe it. You can look younger, thinner and more likely to be successful, all because of the clothes you choose to wear.
Clothes are a reflection of the person. I can walk into someone’s closet, and read them like a book. Do they have organization/perfection skills? Are they artistic? Are they a young mother and require everything wash and wear?
I’ve had a hard time deciding whether to write this as a serious article or poke fun at it until it became a piece of humor. Now that I’ve poked the sense out of it, I might as well just keep my tongue in my cheek.
…. A “clothes-horse” lives in my closet, and by the variety of sizes, colors and styles of “past eras”, I think the horse might have “multiple personalities- with paranoid and hoarding tendencies”. It seems to never get rid of the old stuff, even if it won’t look good unless I lose twenty pounds. However, I must say, the “horse” has good taste in clothes, and I often shop there in the closet, rather than buying something new at the store.
Well! Anything is “in” now days, if you put it together with style! (I do hope I won’t be one of those little old ladies who wear all those layers of jewelry and put their lipstick on above their lips and off to the side). If you happen to be one of those older-ladies, I apologize! It may be “stylin” in the places you hang out!
I’m doing all the right things to make myself look thinner. I’m wearing “V”” necked T-shirts, long necklaces, vertical stripes, thicker makeup and higher hair. I have noticed that some fat sandals with capris can actually make my “butt” look smaller. No doubt that’s why clowns wear big shoes.
Can you really judge a person by their clothing? People do it all the time. It isn’t always fair! Sometimes you’ve gone from working in the garage, straight to the grocery store and run into an old friend coming from a wedding or funeral. Yeah! How unfair is that?
Obviously, I need to refresh my research facts before tackling this subject s-s-seriously.
No matter how great we can look when we gotta! We still have those days when “do better, we oughta”! Sometimes my socks don’t match, and that’s pretty hard to do with panty hose, but it doesn’t matter. Usually no one notices, if you wear something shiny around your neck.
And in the end, what is the best accessory a woman can wear? SELF CONFIDENCE and a SMILE!
