At least act your age

I have had more comments and emails on the 'dressing your age' post.

As an unnamed minister's wife in the Northeast pointed out, it's hard to be self-objective. When are you too old for those shoes or that lipstick or that skirt? Of course, maybe you never wore these so you are in no danger at all. It's possible that THAT SKIRT shouldn't be worn by any self-respecting woman anyway. It is safer to err on the side of modesty.

What is that? Did someone say something about the pot calling the kettle black?

I wonder if there is a reverse issue: never dressing like a kid. When you walk around in that floor-length skirt and flat shoes, it is not because you've gotten older. It is because it is what you wore when you were 19, too. I'm not saying this is a problem.

How you act, though, will make as big an impact as what you're wearing. If you're classy and dress plainly that's better than dressing classy and being a bimbo. (We really oughta bring that word back.)

As for Martin, it is a good thing you gave up on the heels. The world thanks you.
