Let me just start by saying that this is a bit of a rant & rave post.
The intense discussion conversation started with an email link I got from a very sarcastic hubby with a subject “Ouch!”
The email linked to an article titled “Kris Jenner’s Inappropriate Outfit Copies Daughter Kim Kardashian” by Claudine Zap, Yahoo! TV
Here’s the meat of the article:
Most recently, the 56-year-old mother of Kim Kardashian wore an outfit that would be better suited for a 20-year-old (in fact, Kim and sister Khloe have worn similar outfits): hot-pink skinny jeans, black leather jacket, oversized silver handbag, and high-heeled, leopard print mules.
It’s an outfit that a teenager could probably pull off, but Jenner is pushing the fashion bounds in this overly trendy look for her age. The reality TV mom got low marks on the Web. One commenter at the Daily Mail opined the general feeling: “She is a garish attention-seeker. She dresses too young for her age.”
** I actually think she looks great!! Am I wrong?
Me: So, what are you trying to tell me here?
Hubs: Huh? What are you talking about?
Me: Why did you send me this email?
Me: Don’t give me that! What are you telling me? Do I dress inappropriate for my age? Is this what you’re trying to tell me?
Me: I’m gonna throw something at you if you don’t talk! (I actually had a remote in my hand when I threatened him).
Anyway, I got nowhere with him. This actually got me thinking….
If Kris Jenner’s outfit garnered such negative reactions…then what of this?
Am I kidding myself into thinking that I can actually pull this off at my age without provoking the same response? Of course, you all are waaaay too nice to say otherwise, BUT, I’m guessing the same sentiments are out there.
Sweet hubby sensing my dismay, sent me a another link: 10 things women over 40 shouldn’t wear. That MAN!
Well, I disagree with 9 out of the 10 things! Guess which one I do agree with but wear anyway? 😉 I definitely have and will break most of the rules…for sure!
Hubby loves provoking challenging me! He can get me all riled up…got me writing about it!
So, where am I going with this? I haven’t a clue!
I guess I’ve got some thinking to do…
What’s important? Dressing my age? What does that mean? Should I care?
I certainly don’t want to embarrass my kids or hubby, or to be perceived as someone trying too hard to hold on to youth, or better yet, a “garish attention-seeker.”
OMGosh! I’m too old to stress about clothing & such…my brain is mush right now! 😦
On a happier note, today is my daughter’s 23rd Birthday. Happy Birthday Sweetie! We love you!!!
My dear daughter and somewhat dear hubby….oh why, oh why, are you hiding?
I will try to post some outfit pics sometime this weekend. I’m sure I’ll be breaking more rules!
Thank you so much for coming by, and see you soon!
