Ok carrying on from my previous thread about where to shop for my age(35). Was passing New look today and decided to pop in for a look. Was a shop I used to buy in a lot but now having the feeling that it is too young for me.

Alot of the stuff they had in wouldnt suit me-pussyblow blouses,shifts(not kind to norks imo) but they did have a couple of nice tea dresses that I thought were maybe possible?

Sorry still not mastered links but if anyone cares to take a look-one is a green tea dress,the other floral blue pattern and the third brown. I imagine they would be pretty short but as I live in 100 denier opaques anyway maybe that wouldnt be a problem?

Also saw some teal coloured shoe boots in the sale-but again wasnt sure if they screamed fashion victim?

No, I don't think so. It's about how you dress, not where you buy the clothes.

Is this the blue one?

I like it. I am 43 and if I had the figure would wear it with opaques/leggings etc.

Not sure about the shoe boots tbh, but they do have some fabulous shoes in there.

I would say go for it.

No fimbo not that one but very similiar-the one I looked at was £24.99. I dont know about having the figure to pull it off-currently a 14/16 but working towards 12/14.

if an item of clothes suits you then you are clearly not old to wear it.
If that item is in a shop then you are ok to go in and buy it. (IMO)

They sometimes have nice things (am 33)

I am currently coveting this dress, although it's been styled appallingly and looks crap in that pic. It's not on the site though... Anyone seen it on their travels?

OOhh I love that dress tethers! didnt see it in my local shop-will probably be in one of the flagship stores.

Right, if you see it, get me one; If I see it, I'll get you one grin

If they get that dress in my local store then I will get it-would be lovely for xmas nights out.
So if I am not too old for New look then what should I be buying in there? someone who can do links give me some ideas please!
