Things Women Over 40 Should Never, Ever Wear....

Mary Jane Shoes

Yoga Pants.
I don't know. When you work out as hard as I do, you're darn right I will wear my yoga pants!

Graphic Tee

Leopard Print/Faux Fur combo

Skinny Jeans.
Pair them with a graphic tee and mary jane shoes for the faux pas trifecta.

Bold Prints

Anything Low-Cut/Too Sexy.
ZERO complaints about this dress!
Apparently, women over 40 look "desperate" if they dress sexy. Weird, I was MEGA DESPERATE when I was an idiot 25 year old. Now, I rock it so well, 25 year old men bypass their desperate 23 year old counterparts and hit on me!

Skulls

Hair Bows.
Admittedly this was a Halloween costume, but I'm not above putting bows in my hair.

Cutesy Vintage Dresses

This

Pippi Longstocking Braids

Chunky Jewelry

Peter Pan Collars

Sweater Clip.
I saw this on one of those lames lists. Apparently, it ages you.

If you haven't figured it out by now, this list is a joke. I'm 41!! Wear whatever the fuck you want!

  1. Wear all this myself and I'm 46 (not sure how I got here so quickly). Don't care what anyone says either. :)

  3. Wear what you like! I'm 42 and find the older I get, the fewer fucks I give. It's great.

  4. Ever since I lost 170 lbs (shithead ex-husband who controlled what I wore) I have never felt so "ME" and I'm loving it just a bit too much LOL.

Sailor/Nautical Chic!

1915:

1915 was a very pivotal year for fashion. It was the year restrictive Victorian styles began to give way to what would evolve into breezy 1920s styles. This is the earliest nautical styled dress I've seen in the Sears catalogs.

1916:

1921:

Nautical-style Middie blouses were popular throughout the Great War and early 1920s.

1922:

1924:

1924 is the last time nautical-styled clothing appears in the Sears catalogs for several years. Deco-styled "flapper" dresses will dominate. Perhaps they were "over" the Great War and didn't want to dwell on it...;)

1931:

Sailor girls begin to show up again in 1931. The heyday of nautical travel!

I don't think anyone understands how much I love that yellow and brown nautical number!! GAHHH!!! 1935 and 1936 was the HEIGHT of sailor-influenced fashions.

After 1941, sailor influences pretty much disappear from fashion.

40 Years of Fashion Evolution Before Your Very Eyes

Here it is -- the 40 most important years in fashion from the pages of Sears catalogs. This is what everyday people would have worn. Let's start in 1910. It was still practically Victorian times in 1910, but BIG changes were about to come and they haven't stopped to the current day. But we're going to stop in 1950 for the sake of my blog and my tastes.

Fashion from every year starting in 1910 and ending in 1950. Enjoy.
