Life in my 50s: don’t tell me what to wear

October 29, 2016 | Life in My 50s

This morning I posted the link below partly to make a point and partly because it was funny. A comment left on my post in all caps, telling me never to wear a backless dress, perhaps meant as a joke, perhaps not, has inspired me to share not only the photo of the backless dress I wore a few months ago at age 53 over there on the left (I’m 54 now, way past the 30-year cut-off referenced in the story below), but I’m also posting the duct tape backless bra I created to make wearing the backless dress possible. Because I’m just that crafty and creative.

Here’s the best quote from the story below. And if curses offend you, just skip this post entirely.

duct-tape-bra“Women in today’s world are hit from all sides. Do this. Wear that. Don’t do this. Don’t do that. Speak softly. Smile. Agree, agree, agree. Assimilate. Shut up. Stay down.

“The last thing we need is other women telling us what we should and shouldn’t do.”

Amen, sister.

Without further adieu, here it is…

24 Things Women Over 30 Should Wear



Read the full story HERE. Warning: NSFW. There are some strategically placed F-words, along with some really great photos of gorgeous women over 30 wearing whatever they want and doing it with incredible style. Rock on, ladies. You inspire me. And I want that outfit in the photo above, including those awesome shoes that are just barely visible.

And if you want instructions on how to make your own duct tape bra, leave a message in the comment section. 😉
