“What are you writing about today?” a co-worker asked.
“Cardigans!” I replied. “They are excellent transition pieces as weather gets warmer.”
“I hate them,” she said. “They make me feel old.”

I walked off pondering the conversation. Cardigans make me feel anything but old…I always connote them with bobby socks, swing dancing, boyfriend jeans, and good old rock n roll! This conversation got me to wondering if there were any garments which make me feel old.
Besides the obvious…clunky shoes, saggy bras, hair nets, and hose…I had to confess there are a couple of garments which do bring images of my teeth in a jar. One would be lace. Now, I know lace has been in-style for several seasons…but no matter how I style my lace garments, I always feel older in them. So, I finally took all to the consignment shop!
Also, I feel older in maxi-skirts. This just might have more to do with body image and size than anything. But, I always try on beautiful long, flowy skirts…stand in front of the mirror…SIGH…and think… NO!
So how about you…are there any garments which make you feel old? Have you restyled them or just avoided them altogether?

Your “feeling-40-tip-of-the-day” Be willing to learn something new every day…stay open minded. Maybe add modern touches to the garments which make you feel older. But, if the fountain of youth feeling does not follow, be willing to send the garment on its way!!
