This thought started while i went out "browsing" with my mom today....
I NEVER cared so much a bout "what others would say" about my clothes or hair, etc.. Iwwas the "edgy" funky unique styley girl kinda "punky Brewster meets pippi lonstcking meets the 50's with a modern edge.
And while browsing with my mom today, Iactually picked up a pair of Chaki pants, and considered getting them becasue they were THREE bux, but the elastic waist thing scared me, and made me think that My size was too big to be shopping for clothes. I didnt like a single pair of jeans they al looked like someone sat in bleach, and I HONESTLY said when seeing a skirt " geeeeez, Ihave bigger headbands!!!!!"
I always dressed very professionally at work, Wore scrubs with long sleeved shirts to conceal all my tattoos, and haven't had an abnormal hair dye job in years, but i dont know when I got so conservative, am Ijust getting old?? Is it becasue Ive gained weight since I got the insulin pump?? am i just going throuhg a transitional "phase"??? I used ot be so sure of who i was ,and what I looked like, but being in that store today with my mom, I ALMOST felt like I wasnt sure , and that scared me. I mean I know I shouldnt wear some of the things I wore when I was 22, But I mean, When did this happen?? Is this "normal" < << not that i know what normal is either , nor do i strive to find out, but Im feeling unsure of MY self today. People used to love awaiting my arrival to see what I was going to wear, or what i did to my hair that week, and now I feel like Ive become so mundane... and Im not sure Im cool with this.... any input???

that is so funny that you should say that..i am a male 55 and for the last few years i used to buy and wear ONLY abercrombie and fitch clothes..but every time i go out.. i never see males my age with them only the younger kids..so i thought maybe i should stop shopping there..so i did..and besides i noticed that they made their xtra large clothes a lot smaller and they fit me tight now..so i just avoid going there anymore..i was told that they want the younger crowd wearing their clothes and NOT the older people...so it is ok with me..not i shop where every i see something that i like whether it me mervyns-target-k marts or some special mens store and i really dont care what people think about what i wear..i figure most of them i DONT know anyways..so why should i care?? LOL

StarD,
I am just wondering If Im destined to be some old conservative dork, I know these things really arent in my taste, and i dont want ot look cheap, or like a 60 year old who still wears clothes from the Junior Dept. but I am not liking feeling sequestered to the BORING, ugly, plain Misses dept. maybe i should take the 3 hour drive into NYC, and look for unique shops.
It's liek Im somewhere between hot topic, and Nordstoms on a budget. Perhaps I should fulfill my fashion design quest with an artisitc 30 something target.
Hell, Betsey Johnson is not exactly a teeny bopper, and she is still funky couture.But do I look like an "old broad trying to look young in my favorite t's and overalls?? I don't feel "old" Im told I look like a kid, but is it becasue i still dress like one, or am oblivious to being " age approprite"? One of My docotrs almost hugged me and stated " I can't beleive how Normal your hair looks!!' and she meant it in a nice way, she was just so surprized, as was I when I looked at myself in the mirroe longer then when i brush my teeth... I was Like "who is this chubby girl/woman/person?!?!?!?!?!?!?!" and it's wasnt nessesarily that i didnt like it, I was just shocked, i suppose.

It's not about age, it's about being comfortable with yourself...okay, a little price break never fails to sway me into some this stuff either.
