I’m turning 29 next month. Twenty-nine is practically thirty and means I am just that much closer to finally Living The Dream. The Dream being, of course, to actually be able to carry off the jeweled turban. I even bought one, a 1958 Dior jobber in aqua silk satin. I try it on every few months and each time I put it back in its box, muttering “not yet.”
It was once said that to wear Dior you had to have a waist, but to wear Balenciaga you had to have a personality. Some clothes and accessories (an Hermès scarf, an Aquascutum bag) just demand the inner swagger of life experience that sweet young things –bless their hearts– simply don’t have.
Francesca and Plumcake want to know:
If you’re a woman of a certain age, what can you wear now that you couldn’t wear before? For our younger gals, is there anything –like my jeweled turban– that you love but just feel you’re too young to wear? Let us know AND if you’ve had the joy of finally aging into something, tell us about that, too!
