Its got to have something Per Una-ish about it. Zebra skin lining? Gold buttons at the back? Bet they accessorize it in the display with a jaunty multi coloured scarf and patchwork mock-leather handbag!
Yes, thought it was. Getting old is no joke though, but at least we women can laugh about it and be honest. I know women in their late 70s and even 90s with gorgeous skin on their faces. It's all in the genes, you know, as with my and my sister's slender bodies. We can't have it all - although my 83 year-old neighbour has no lines or wrinkles anywhere - her neighbour 25 years younger has .. And she is slim with a gorgeous full head of hair which she dyes the same colour as she used to be. Always looks smart too. Good for her!
Life I do not consider myself gorgeous at all - rather old and wrinkly, but look OK fully clothed, including my arms and legs. No more sleeveless tops, shorts or knee length skirts for me anymore If I could wear gloves to hide my hideous wrinkly hands I would !!.
