      Mutton is an just an older lamb.  Age is also a mental attitude, and apparent age is flexible, with makeup and clothing choice able to create the illusion of youth.   Physical age used as a reason to not celebrate whatever fashions you prefer is self limiting.

      I may be mutton but I can look like lamb (and in my head I am a lamb), and am a devotee of the 1661 ethos. (for those unfamiliar – look 16 from behind, 61 from the front!)

      At 25 yards it is very difficult to guess someone’s age – especially if they have opted to be a lamb. Going about dressed as granny is more of an indication of your age than sashaying around in a mini-skirt and sleeveless top.  The secret is to wear whatever you choose with confidence.

      We are able to dress and convince people into believing we are women.  We can also convince people into believing we are younger than we are by dressing younger.    I believe I can knock at least twenty years off my birthday card age by wearing styles representing the age group I wish to look like.

      But I really don’t care what others think. I dress in the style I like, for myself, not for someone else’s approval/disapproval.

      If you wish to dress your birthday card age then that is your choice…. but oh girl! woman!  you are so missing out.

      Now… where’s is that black  A-line, button fronted, faux suede mini-skirt?  And bubblegum pink, short sleeved ruffled top?  Today I am going to be twenty something. (and I will get away with it)

      dressing disgracefully,

        Such wise words from one so young….lol  I do like the 1661.

        Have seen a lovely Red leatherette skirt that just may go with a Satin Cobalt Blue blouse, never know till you try.

      “Loved what I saw” always.  Of all the tags on all the clothes I’ve ever bought over the last 50 or so years I’ve yet to see one that mentions how old you need to be to wear it.

      For me, it’s a fight between the Flower Child and the Punkgurl. Bright colors and frills, versus dark and distressed. Not so cute as to be kawaii. And likewise, not too dark, leaning towards goth. And punk can get kawaii, too.

      As to lamb or mutton, I get things that are updated classics.

      Hi Wilma.

      I simply do wear anything that I see and think… wow!!

      “An explosion in a charity shop” or maybe ” a trolley dash in a boutique” sums up my private photos….

      Imagine a group of GG’s going out..”how do I look, will they like my outfit, am I trendy”????

      I have nobody to impress at all, I don’t care what’s ” in or out”, apart from me!!!

      Mutton dressed as lamb???…maybe sometimes, but who really wants to look like mutton???….

      dressing disGRACEfully xx

      Loved what I saw for me. I personally love velvet blouses or dresses.

      If I love what I see, it’s a deal for me!

      I like shopping for clothing that’s on clearance, or sometimes used clothing at my local Goodwill. It’s amazing how much money you can save, and look great at the same time.

      I have always loved leather and lace.  Not sure if you can ever be too old for that. I also like spandex. I hope that I don’t get too old to wear it but it definitely tells me that I can’t skip daily workouts.  I have been doing that all summer.  I do have some really cute workout stuff that hopefully absorb lots of sweat for the next couple of weeks.

      I tend to have some preferences that seem to have developed on their own. I do seem to be maturing as of late though. There are some outfits that I would obviously look very out of place in public, and too old for. These I will always enjoy in private regardless of my age. 💕💋 Katie

      I definitely do not dress my age. I have bought some things that are more appropriate for a woman in her 50’s. But, I’ve found that I’m just not drawn to them. I love short shorts and leggings, and casual things like that. I just wear what makes me happy.

      Because I loved what I saw💕

      Don’t want to offend anybody but don’t want to wear what women my age wear. Why should I conform to this societal expectation when I’m breaking a much bigger one i.e. my gender stereotype.

      Age is a state of mind. In my opinion body shape, confidence,   personal style and preference are more important, oh and maybe how good you are at make up and wig selection etc.

      I wear anything I think is pretty. I’n 65. If I dressed like many my age nobody would think I was anything but my age. Plus I hate old lady styles. If I had my own boobies I would proudly display them too.

      Great topic Wilma, and in my case *definitely* because of what I saw. I have always been fascinated and obsessed by beautiful/romantic/bridal lingerie and my lingerie wardrobe is incredible and would make most women jealous. Every night I feel like a woman coming to bed on her wedding night because of what I’m wearing to bed. It’s heaven!

      My style matches to a degree of my inner self and since in way going through the pubity of a woman in with the help of doing HRT  the making felt should try to match my outfits. Know some never could do but many can and choose that fits and look good.

      Fashion is what others tell you you should be wearing.
      Style is wearing what you want because you know you look awesome wearing it. 🙂

      I wear what I like.

      The occasion and context are my main considerations.

      There’s no such thing as mutton dressed as lamb, just what looks right to you in that mirror – and what you wouldn’t feel embarrassed walking down a busy street in.

      Although the mirror tells lies, as any number of selfies will tell you, the street will not.

      Just get the mirror image lovely, gaze at and remember that beautiful look – and behave like you look like that.

      Shop windows provide ample opportunity for validating your choice. It’s too late by then, but at least there’s opportunity to check that you’re smiling, walking tall, and looking relaxed and carefree!

      Love Laura
