I'm a 61 year old mum and grandma. Can anyone tell me where I can buy decent clothes that don't make me look like mutton dressed as lamb. I am desperate for some new clothes,(seem to wear the same few things over and over) but just can't see anything to suit, everything seems to be too young or too fuddy duddy. I can't tell you the number of times I have gone shopping for clothes only to come home with nothing. PS My nearest big shopping centre is Merry Hill, so, if anyone knows that any shops there which I should particularly try? Or in Birmingham? Suggestions gratefully received!
Certainly not arty and bohemian or rural and tweedy. Would like to be more tailored and stylish but stuck in a jeans and top rut. Shortish straight hair. How would I like to look - not sure what Juliette Binoche looks like for a start! I would balk at paying £300 for a coat but wouldn't mind paying £50 for something if I was going to get plenty of wear out of it.
