Im tall and curvy and Im almost 58. I already have plenty of stuff thats shunk and doesnt fit. So why would I want to pay good money for pants that show the crack of my a$$ and jackets that are so short they look like I stole them from somebodies 5th grader. And whats up with the baby doll tops. Im sorry but anytime I see a large person(me) wearing one all I can think of is that dance in Fantasia. The ballet where the poor alligator tries to catch the hippo in the tutu and gets squished.

Okay Im done. Could somebody help me down off my soap box.
Have you ever shopped at Christopher and Banks? Christopher & Banks

My mom is 55 and I bought her clothes from there for her birthday and now it's her new favorite store. The cuts are sort of geared towards women a little older who don't want all that low cut stuff, but the styles are still very fashionable.

Give us your vote on some of these top trends:

1. Houndstooth pattern

2. Capes

3. Animal prints

4. Purple

5. Bows

6. Chunky knits

7. Metallics

8. School boy look

Feel free to add your own too.
1) No. Seems too masculine

2) No.

3) No, tired of this trend and never really like it.

4) Yes. I especially like "plummish" colors of purple.

5) Maybe

6) Okay.

7) Okay.

Thanks for the tip about Christopher and Banks. ( I am 52 and would be interested in the type of clothing you mentioned.) I didn't think we had any in the Dallas area, but I looked at the link you provided and we sure do.

Well Im kinda eccentric in my dress and I wear a lot of mens stuff. So I hesitate to really give fashion advice to others. But off he top of my head Id say you would need to put on some pants. Now finding some pants that you can stand to wear might be a little tricky.

Ive shopped at CJ banks but I need more casual suff now that Im not working in an office anymore. I have tons of dressy stuff from when used to be an engineer. Suits etc.

My problem is Im picky . Im tall and I only like fall colors. Goes better with my red hair. I wear a lot of mens shirts and jackets cause they fit. But I make them girlie with accessories.

I voted for the fashion forum

Apparently no one else did

I would love to chat with you girls about cute clothes, ugly clothes, make up...you name it.

I could probably come up with 32 topics just on handbags<3
