French women have a saying “Vieillir un Privilége” – To age is a privilege. There is an art to aging well and dressing with style. With advancing age great adventures begin. Embrace them and be bold. Be adventuresome. Dazzle yourself and the world. At this time of our lives dare to do anything you like and do it worth audacity. This ritual of dressing. This dressing for life. These years belong to you. Life is short, make every moment count.
Less is less. More is not quite enough. Good taste is overrated. Don’t wear beige.
Never, never live home without lipstick.
Determine what looks good on you and wear a variation every day.
To grow old is a privilege. Flaunt a life well lived. Do it with style.
And sex: never give up on it, in what ever shape or form. It keeps the roses in your cheeks and the gleam in your eyes.
(Over six decades of being a fashion maven has influenced my style of dressing. I appreciate timeless, classic style. I wear fashions I bought 45 years ago. When in doubt I ask myself “what would Chanel wear”. I dislike leggings. They are simply tights with the feet cut off. Tattoos. Gray hair coloured with patches of pink or mauve. They do nothing for any women, but I defend to the end their right to their choices.)
