So, this lunchtime I was out walking the dog (in male clothes …… me, not the dog!) Now, I am very observant, and have spent hundreds of hours studying people with a view to improving my AFR (Acceptability as Female Rating) when I am out as Stephanie. I have got pretty good at it.
Anyway, about 100 yards off, and on a converging course, I spotted a very attractive, tall, slim young woman with long blonde hair. Her arms were swinging and she was gliding along in that elegant way some females do.
She was wearing a smart black top with silverish trim, black slimfit jeans and pink trainers. Trailing behind were a boy and a girl about 9 or 10 years of age.
I took her to be either their young mother or maybe older sister. She was so elegant and attractive that I looked forward to exchanging pleasantries with her.
How wrong I was!
As we got closer – about 5 metres apart – I realised she was older, much older, than I had thought. She was maybe in her late fifties or early sixty’s, with a face, still attractive, but lined and wrinkled like a dried prune, in that way that someone who has lived an outdoor life or exposed to a lot of sun can look. She was probably the children’s granny!
Was she dressed her age? No. Did she fool me about her age? Yes. Did she look great? yes.
A classic case of the 1661 phenomenon (for those that don’t know :- 16 from the back, 61 from the front.
I am not a follower of the “dress your age” or “dress appropriately” mentality. I wear what I like and know I can carry it off.. a least at a distance. So can you.
p.s. I am thinking of penning a series of posts about ‘posture and gait’ to help us girls improve our AFR rating. Please indicate if this will be of interest.
