Always remember laughing at noddyholders posts about her mum and her penchant for silver chunky jewellery and flicky hair.

what item epitomises your mum?

"Ecco or Padder shoes
elastic waist jeans or cords
Fleeces when not going up a mountain
Things from Dash
little jumpers in shades of lilac, aqua and blue"

My mum too! And I'm not sure being 86 is a good enough excuse. I find I'm put off certain shops by association with her - Edinburgh Woollen Mill for one
and Jaeger -no matter how hard they try to convince me they have fashion I think of my mothers neat merino knitwear with a blouse collar poking out at the neck and feel deterred from entering.

Yeah Jaegar and Acquascutum remind me of Margaret thatcher.

I think my mum dresses well for her age... BUT I do wish that she wouldn't tuck her t-shirts into her jeans/trousers! It's not very flattering to her tummy.

I would never wear 3/4 length trousers though, I've seen how short they make her look!
