I've been blogging with other fashionistas over 50 talking about this disconnect thing. It's that disconnect you feel when you see a body that doesn't fit with the face. It could be an older face with clothes that are too young, or shorts that are too short, or a body that just is in DAMN GOOD SHAPE!
This phenomenon really makes me question the whole society thing, and how we (over 50+ers) are starting to not fit in. Gone are the days when one could be and "old sage", or respected for being a master craftsman. And in the fashion field--one wrinkle and your OUT! The only solution to avoid this is to make that appointment with the plastic surgeon. Or, like in my blog, go headless in my pictures.
I probably won't opt for either of those solutions-I'm not being chased by the paparazzi and I feel that I can test out styles to see if they look connected only by having my head on. I'm going to keep plugging away, and maybe there will be the "disconnect" thing just a little bit less if people see us over 50 fashionistas just a little bit more.
