You must see this wonderful video of Women of a certain age and their idea of fashion. They have created a style all their own to please themselves, and be damned what anyone else thinks. They make me look forward to growing old!

I don't have sound at the moment but watched it anyway so I don't know what was said. But, one thing is for sure, they all look immensely happy!

Turning 40 for me was eye opening. I decided then that if I didn't love something and it didn't make me happy, then I wasn't going to wear it. And also, that I didn't give a crap whether someone else thought it was ok or not. I don't dress outlandish but I do dress a bit different than the norm, especially here at work. I think people have finally gotten used to it.

Anyone who has the kind of money to afford what they were wearing can certainly get away with wearing anything they choose to wear.

I do consider it one of the benefits of having achieved my mid-40's that I don't have to worry about fashion anymore. I can wear what I like and what I think looks good and not be the least bit concerned about what someone else thinks -- reasonable expectations of public decency excepted (NO TIGHTS AS PANTS!!!!!).

I like the way my hair is graying, no dye jobs for me. I like it at waist length, no chop and perm for me (a couple weeks ago an asian co-worker with slightly iffy English commented on the beauty of my "Cinderella hair").

I like wearing skirts and dresses. I like skirts at ballerina length. I like 3/4 sleeves and V-necklines. I like pink (though not candy/Barbie/Pepto-Bismol pink). I like floral prints.

I loathe brown, detest orange, and wouldn't be caught dead in chartreuse for anything short of a zombie invasion.

I wear a fanny-pack purse for several reasons including that carrying a shoulderbag makes the pinched nerve in my neck ache.

And I don't have to answer to anyone about what I like or don't like.

Cashmere sweaters and skirts dyed to match sound good to me, but I think I'll skip necklaces made of shooter marbles and billiard balls.

Thanks for posting this video, Sherril.

I read Ari's amazing blog 'Advanced Style' every day.

Most of these women (with the distinct exception of Iris Apfel) shop in thrift shops for all their wonderful fashion finds!

None of those ladies are plus.
Wish I had even half of their style.
I do not have one stylish bone in my body.
Do you think it is something your are born with or can you learn it?
