to think that women over, say, 25 should not wear those sunglasses with the white/pink/lilac frames?

A couple of mums at school were wearing white framed sunglasses at pick up yesterday. They are very attractive and stylish women but these sunglasses looked stoopid, as if they were trying too hard to be cool. Here's an example

AIBU to think that these sunglasses belong on very young women not yummy mummies doing the school pick up?

YABU I think people should wear whatever makes them happy.

Hmmm, must be just round these parts that women of a certain age look ridiculous in them. grin

Lol! Link please (to the gold socks..!)

Sparkly gold socks! Whoa Momma, that's some serious style you're busting there, I like it grin

Mulanmum1 Wed 03-Jun-09 16:59:29

How old are you, OP? And what is a "certain age"?

cornsilk Wed 03-Jun-09 16:59:38

Gold socks! <<impressed!>>

I think they look fine on older women.

DarrellRivers Wed 03-Jun-09 16:59:43

Surely it's a coolness quotient rather than an age thing

Sassybeast Wed 03-Jun-09 17:01:12

Mine are pink and they are 'well cool' according to my DD. I am well more than 25........

CowWatcher Wed 03-Jun-09 17:01:51

I agree. Utterly ridiculous. YANBU.

cornsilk Wed 03-Jun-09 17:03:18

Stop being such a judgy pants. People should wear what they want.

every morning i see two teenagers in matching heart shaped white rimmed sunglasses they look cool.

wearing them seriously would probably make me laugh, like you're trying too hard.
