My son is getting married Oct. 17 and I haven't started looking for a dress to wear to the wedding! I've only looked online and even though I'm 62 years old everything I've seen looks like it was made for an 80 year old. I have a nice body for my age and don't want to look like an old hag!Any suggestions?

HaHa! I know exactly what you are talking about ctrymuziklvr! I'm also 62 and have a heck of a time finding clothes that don't make me look like a fuddy duddy. I'm small and in pretty good shape too, so I end up searching forever to find something to wear....sometimes I do end up in the Jr. department. I have to be careful there though because they are just tooooo young looking for me and I don't want to look ridiculous. I do eventually find something that's sort of in between but it takes a long time to do it. You'd better get going, lol! It took me a very long time to find a dress for my daughter's wedding and I found it at Deb's. Just look and look and look, everywhere, even places you don't think you'd find something. Good Luck!

My daughter mentioned Debs to me and we're going to start there. Then I have a list of other places I want to look. My daughter and I are going to make a day of it next week and I"m looking forward to that.

hi ctrymuziklvr. and what is an 80 yr olds dresses supposed to look like? I think as a 82 year old I look for clothes that are pretty and fit and look modern, up to date'probably the same kind of clothes you are looking for. I did not know that there were special old lady clothes in this modern day and age.' Racism sexism and now ageism. wow.

If I came off sounding rude I didn't mean to. My Mom was 82 when she passed away and she had some awesome clothing. Some of which I have and wear once in awhile. All I meant to say was that the clothes they are showing for this occasion aren't with the times and I am. I apologize for the way it came out.
