Amen!

Seriously, wear what flatters your body shape, whatever that shape may be.

Not to mention the shoe pairing with some of those skirts
They ARE horrible! I'm over 40 and what does that mean, I'm relegated to Sag Harbor? Well I didn't get that memo. I like classics like Anne Klein and Calvin Klein, but I also like funky fast fashion from H&M. I like bright colors and funky styles. I still prefer to wear business suits to interviews. And I wouldn't be caught dead in high waisted jeans considering I have a short torso/high waist.

How do I look at 41? I have piercings, bottle blonde pixie cut hair, and yeah I still wear some things the younger people wear. Wear what makes you feel good!!

ETA - pointy heeled shoes suck. I'm already a size 10.5, don't need anything to make my foot longer.

Exactly! I still buy some things at H&M. I have relatively small feet (7.5 at 5'6" tall) and I still hate the pointy toe shoes. Damned uncomfortable. I'm 56 and still have good looking legs so I still wear shorter shorts. When they no longer look good, I will stop wearing them.

I'm not ready to be relegated to old status. Not sure if I ever will be.

A good business suit, well made, is classic...no matter the age of the wearer.

Fffffft to that article

I agree. Also, I would be happy to look that young again.

I dunno.

She looks about the same as I did when I was 40-42.

But people thought I was younger at that age.

She is gorgeous and doesn't look old in Pics 1 and 2. Pic 3 is unfortunate, and as someone posted upthread, features harsh and unflattering eye makeup.

Looking at her, I have no idea of her true age, I just clicked on this as I was intrigued by the thread title.
She looks beautiful, and if I were single, I would so "put the bite" (London slang for hit on), her.
I am absolutely useless at assessing ages, I'm a happily married man, so I'm not looking around at all, but just to cover my ass, were I to hit on her and she agreed to a date, should I spoil it by asking to see her birth certificate?
I'll stay on the right side by averting my eyes, and trying to remember what the Hernando County Clerk who married us said, something like, "keep thee only unto her."

I agree. She is a lovely woman. I don't think she looks older than 30. Such pettiness.
