Well, I'm wearing mine over a tiger print Mary Quant catsuit but you can wear yours on your head if that's what you want to do.
|Check out the rather groovy label|
|1960s Sheffield Steel Alfred Tricker Crafts choker (£1.50, car boot sale)|
Whilst trawling the Internet hoping to research the label on my 'loons I was instead inundated with tips as to how I should be wearing them and sadly "keep it simple" (surely the most depressing phrase in the history of the universe) was the general consensus of opinion by the so-called style experts.
|1960s velvet flares (20p, jumble sale), Mary Quant catsuit (the divine Miss Von Trollop), Devore coat (the fabulous Janne), English-made leather Gladstone bag (20p, jumble sale), 1970s felt hat (50p, car boot sale)|
How bloody boring!
Far be it from me to offer any wardrobe advice but for heaven's sake, let your personality do the talking, not your clothes. Age inappropriate, tarty, unfashionable, tacky or just plain weird.......to hell with it, if that's what you are be proud of it and let the rest of world know.
Dress to suit yourself , mix your eras, clash your prints & colours and pile it all on at once if it makes you feel good.
Anyway, rant over...I've been honoured with a mention by the awesome Bella as one of her top six unmissable over-40s bloggers and I feel like I've won an Oscar.
