My fashion tips

I don't have any delusions that I am in fashion. I know I am not that cool when it comes to my clothes and hair....but I also know that I am not anywhere close to looking like the polygamists that live around here. Today while at the airport picking up my nephew I was able to people watch....something I haven't don't for a long time. I thought I would share with you some of the things I learned.

1. At some point every female should stop wearing short skirts...the kind that barely cover your bum.....my preference would be before you reach the age of 45!
2. Unless you are a size 2/4 you should not wear stretch pants...especially if you are pairing it with a crop top and really really really chunky black shoes.
3. I don't think that the shirt that you buy for your 7 year old while you are in Vegas should read "What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas". For some reason it doesn't strike me as age appropriate. (then again we know I am not a "fashion" guru)
4. Cowboy hats do not go with everything...especially with jogging suits.
5. I know pajamas are comfortable...but some places they shouldn't be worn....like in public!
6. You know those really cute chunky necklaces, the ones with the beads that are the size of like ping pong balls, I would try limiting how many you wear at one time....you don't have to wear your entire collection with one outfit.


and last but not least, and perhaps the most important...

7. I don't care how small your chest is....there comes a point when every woman needs to wear a bra in public....I know that 65 is well past that age, especially if you are wearing a white tank top.

Now if I have gotten any of these rules wrong please let me know...I am not here to judge, just to improve my own fashion sense and those around me!

Guilt of public pj wearing. *smiles sheepishly*

Totally agree with your fashion tips... and may I add my biggest pet peev - dark bras should not be worn with white shirts. Nobody wants to see that.
