And, skinny jeans? Oh, my…even my stretch pants have blowouts occasionally! Really! This was needed years ago. What were they thinking? That the youth had the money to spend? Ha! I bet they were spending their birthday money from Grandma. Those clueless designers should have known! If they began catering to the younger gals in the sixties, they should have followed us into boomer stage!
@BoomerGparent Mimi on Twitter, posted this and it caught my eye: “Boomers to trump youth in fashion influence http://fb.me/HZufrouK.” Thanks, Mimi for giving me a topic for my next post! This can’t happen too soon to suit me. I am tired of looking for slacks that actually have a waist. I only looked good in hip huggers when I was in my teens. That was more years ago that I have fingers and toes and will never return, so let’s move on. Give me some comfortable clothing that doesn’t cling to my lumps and isn’t cut down to my kneecaps, please. I like to consider myself a respectable lady, not a Las Vegas showgirl…thank you very much. I need coverage, not cleavage.
When I read this Sunday’s newspaper and turn to the fashion page I will be expecting to see a mature, full-figured model strolling down the runway with her walker, wearing a high-collared, long-sleeved, maxi-dress (purple, of course) with my name on it! YES! That would be just the thing!
