Just that really - got a bargain in the sales!

No you aren't, if you like it , wear it!

I'm 42 and I've got one from last year . It depends on your style but I'm wearing mine again!

RickOShay Wed 05-Apr-17 17:17:06

definitely not. I would admire your style.

Ok good! Normally don't actually care and I love it but wasn't sure if they are 'teenager' items! Thanks!

Mary Berry can rock a patterned bomber & she is a little older than you

LadyLapsang Wed 05-Apr-17 19:22:26

Of course not, go for it!

Definitely not, there was one in the Oasis sale that I wished I had bought and am now regretting not getting.

Toots has beaten me to the mention of Mary Berry! If she can, you can.

AteRiri Wed 05-Apr-17 21:18:59

No, definitely fine.

Emma that is where I got it! Bargain! Even if it hangs in my wardrobe forevermore, I love it. Thanks all.

I had a lovely old dear of about 75-80 come into the shop the other day and buy an embroidered biker jacket. She apparently has 11 others and loves them. So get your bomber jacket and wear it with pride.

I will have to check the Oasis website again. I am still tempted.

Think I might be having a fashion mid life crisis as I also bought some silver sparkly trainers the other week...

No! I love my bomber jacket, so useful and lots of compliments!

I'm watching Friends and Phoebe is wearing a patterned bomber jacket!

Actually, most of the clothes they're wearing, I see them nowadays too.

My auntie in her 60s wears one and it looks really lovely.

CoolCarrie Fri 07-Apr-17 16:19:40

Nothing wrong with sparkly trainers either!

There was a lady well into her 70's on the train today wearing a quilted patterned bomber jacket, loads of jewellery and sparkly black trainers and she looked fab.

Ooh, I put one back that was a huge bargain today, not really because I thought I'm too old (46) but because it was too 'fashionable". I though probably as ive become interested they've been and gone and as I tend to wear my clothes until they fall apart, that I'd end up looking very dated.

It was beautiful but not at all subtle, with painted parrots and gold edging . grin

Fgs all, stop with the 'Am I too Old?' stuff. If it suits you and you like it, wear it.

noisewithdirton Fri 07-Apr-17 18:37:54

Yes Best, in that case am I not too old for a pair of Lelli Kellys as I would love a pair wink

BestIsWest Fri 07-Apr-17 19:33:33

grin If they fit and make you happy!
