I have something to confess: I never liked studying history in school.
I think the reason is the way it was taught. We had to memorize the dates when popes and monarchs reigned, presidents and prime ministers served in office, significant battles were fought in major wars, and so forth. We never learned about what life was like for the people living then. We never read their stories.
I’m sure most every woman reading this article has some sort of pearl jewelry by this time in her life. It seems like many of us have been gifted the items or they’ve been handed down through the generations.
And while we have these items, I have to ask, how much do you wear them?
Is your closet jam-packed with clothing you no longer wear? Would you like to try a new look, improve your image or gain more confidence? What about your hairstyle? Do you wear it the same way all the time because you don’t know what to do with it?
Granted, times, opportunities, healthcare and attitudes are different from when our mothers were in their 60s, resulting in a currently “smarter” generation when it comes to information access.
Ever feel like you just wear the same old things, day-in, day-out? It’s easy to get stuck in a fashion rut. And it’s not like local shops offer a good variety of plus size clothing. What can you do if your style has become too routine?
Finding good advice on how to apply makeup for older women is a challenge. So, since this is a topic that many women in the community have asked me about, I turned to celebrity makeup artist, Ariane Poole for some advice.
The other day, I shared an article about 88-year-old fashion icon, Baddie Winkle, who recently appeared in a television commercial for Millennial-focused fashion brand Missguided. In the article, I argued that women like Baddie are doing a service for older women everywhere by challenging aging stereotypes and living their own way.
Last weekend I had a life-changing experience: while attending a training session on color analysis, I found out that I’ve been wearing the wrong palette for over 20 years.
With all that’s going on in the world today, this error might sound trivial to you. But as a woman who prides herself in looking her best whenever she leaves the house, I was shocked by this news.
I’m sure we all remember the “rules” that governed how to dress as we were growing up. I realize that it’s hard to change our thinking about something we’ve heard over and over throughout life. However, I do feel like it’s important to be open to new ideas and styles, too. It keeps us young and modern!
