There’s a saying that if you are old enough to have worn it the first time around, then you are too old to be wearing it this time around.. But I’m starting to hope think that this can’t possibly be right, now that I am seeing clothes in the shops that I wore the first time around. I’m really not *that* old.. am I? Or is this a slippery slope to me becoming mutton dressed as lamb?
To be fair, I’m only in my early thirties *ahem* and the revival of some of the current trends were being worn by me in my teens.. but this still counts as wearing it the first time around though doesn’t it? Does this mean that when young whippersnappers see me, they will snigger and see me as *gasp* mutton?
The thing is, in my mind, I still feel 17! As I’m sure many of us do! The getting older bit kind of creeps up on you and before you know it, you are in your thirties *sob* I try to kid myself into thinking that 30 is the new 20, 40 is the new 30 etc and that being in your thirties *isn’t* old anymore.. but do I think that because I am now in that age group? I think I probably do. But I do see age as a state of mind and I really don’t want to give up on fashion yet. In fact, I have no intentions to!
So does that make it alright for me to wear fashion the second time around? Is it alright for me to change the rules to suit now that I am getting older? What do you think?
