I Just Love It !

While I was eating my breakfast at an eatery near the hospital where I had my laboratory tests done last Tuesday , I was also watching people come in or just pass by . Most of those who came in , were middle age people like me and noticed that they were impeccably dressed . From the shoes , jeans and blouses , to their bags and accessories , they were impeccable ! I feel proud for them for still being that, despite the matured age, because I am also one of them too. I just love dressing up accordingly . For me , the maturing age should not deter us from making ourselves look good always even at the house and the more when we go out of the house . Though , we should have in mind to dress accordingly , meaning according to what is suited for our age , for our body built , occasion and place . Do you share this attitude of mine , guys ? Good morning from the Philippines !

Aging does not mean we will not be fashionable anymore. I am very fashionable but I make sure my fashion is appropriate with my age.

Yes , that is so true . We also have our own way of making ourselves fashionable actually , though we should do it in a way that is appropriate to our age indeed .

I like to dress neatly. I don't follow fashion trends .. but I like to dress well. I keep my body shape in mind more than my age while dressing.

I don't follow fashion trends too , because usually some of the fashionable clothes are for younger people . I always buy classic clothes so they can be worn over many years . And yes just like you , i also have in my my body shape while dressing .

@SIMPLYD That is the sensible thing to do.. I prefer classics too.. I have few clothes as I don't like clutter and I like to wear them well.

Being too fancy , is not what it should be . One can just be presentable enough , taking into consideration the occasion we will be attending .

@marlina Actually , one doesn't have to have fancy stuff just to be dressed presentably .

Unfortunately what one person thinks is appropriate, the next may not. We don't all think alike, do we?

Yes, so it's better to have clothes that are classic , not too fancy but appropriate to the occasion .

I dress like a bag lady. I mean to dress better when I go out, but often I just go out dressed exactly as I do for sitting at the computer. I have no impeccable image. Sorry.

I understand because i was once a stay at home. I get lazy dressing up well if i have to go out . But when i started going to an office again , i regained my sense of dressing .

Yes I do, I like to dress properly, to wear nice clothes and shoes and I never go outside without wearing a little make up and combing my hair.

Of course, I do! I just feel uncomfortable seeing women going to church dressed like they are going to a bar - - sporting very revealing dresses. Sometimes I am thinking that it may be the reason why my former classmates in the seminary, who were ordained priests, decided to leave the convent and married their secret girlfriends.

Oh , those ones aren't dressed accordingly and should be reprimanded by the priest . As to your former classmates in the seminary , they are not chosen , as the saying goes "Many are called but few are chosen" .

@SIMPLYD I was the one not chosen; they were chosen coz they were ordained . . but then the chosen ones usually choose to leave the convent because they think they made a mistake when lots of pretty ladies are smiling at them. I knew I would have done the same . . that is why I decided to tell our bishop . . "Monsignor, I changed my mind!"

@antonbunot It's sad when they are already priest but chose to go out from it still .

I dont mind as long as I get to wear what I am comfortable with. Today, because I stay at home most of the time, and go out for a very negligible time, I still go in almost the same attires. Back when I was a student and then an employee, I loved to be selective and well dressed.

@SIMPLYD It saves a good amount of money... but the only problem is that I havent got me a new dress in years now... and at times I feel so very bored wearing the same old stuff

@SIMPLYD True it doesn't and I try to dress ok and up be untidy and misplaced. I agree you don't have to be the follower of fashion.

I have some health issues and there are days when I can barely get out of bed and walk. Because of this, I like to be comfortable and I don't dress up or wear makeup when I am at home.

That is understandable . When at home we can be dressed the way we want to because it's only us and our family members who can see us .

It is good that people take a pride in their appearance. I am probably a bit more casual than that.

its become fashion to dress up for different function and with location like if we go for adventure then drees up with cowboy cap shorts and specs etc. it look good to dress up but keep it in limitation.

Of course , for every place or occasion we have a different type of dressing . But when one gets overdressed for an occasion she can be the center of distraction and butt of jokes .

I do dress up more now than when I was younger. I used to work in an office and wore business clothes, so on my day off or the weekends, I dress down- tshirt and jeans mostly. Nowadays though I try to be trendy. We're the same. Are you from the Bicol region? I'm fromBaguio..

@vickyrose Yes, i am from the province of Albay , Bicol Region , where that famous landmark of Albay is . It's nice to know that you are from Baguio , kababayan . I also try to be trendy nowadays , though not much because it has to suit me though . So you were also an office girl then . It's nice to work in an office .

Thank you for saying that . That is understandable , because you will be hanging out with young people - your kids. I guess, one factor too is the people around you . When they are generally the younger ones you should at least learn how to dress just like them though a bit tamed .

although I have dresses for formal events, I don't know but I still prefer denims and tee-shirts with rubber sandals. When I wear a dress, I am that demure lady, but when I am in rugged attire, I walk like a man, move like a man, sit "de-quatro". I also have that shoulder-pouch bag and my hair tied up. at 56, I do not dress according to my age (silly me!)

You know , being presentable doesn't mean those nice dresses . As long as you are good to look at and your shoes and dresses are clean , you are already presentable . Just like you , i haven't gotten over my liking for the denim pants .
