We're not perfect, and we’re certainly not perfect in the eyes of our youth-centric world with its emphasis on skinny, shiny and sleek.
Some of us may be a bit wrinkled and dimpled, but we should not be afraid of our imperfections or be self-conscious – at all.
If we were to dare to wear slightly more outlandish clothes and peacock colours that could actually make us look really great, then we could gain new confidence and unleash a new personal, unique style .
There is no reason why we cannot brighten our own wardrobes up with some brave and exciting pieces. Most of us cannot afford to spend what these delightful New York ladies can, but it only takes one special carefully sourced piece to bring some excitement to our 'look' and delight others just as these ladies do.
Sometimes we feel (and I am guilty of this) that we become invisible as we age. Perhaps this is just part and parcel of fearing to stand out. Instead of being brazen enough to make an impression we blend in and become just like every other grand-mumsy women who’s relinquished bold and accepted bland with sensible after 50.
It's not too late to be challenged!
It’s our differences that make us unique; the way our wrinkles lie, the clothes we choose to wear, our talents and gifts.
