Does this poem exist or did I dream it?

Hello, I am trying to find a poem about a woman going through different stages in her life (teens, 10s, 20s, 30s etc) and it goes through different concerns and insecurities and ends with her looking in the mirror, pulling on her favourite purple hat and not caring what people thought anymore.

I can't find it and am now wondering if it actually exists! (It's not "warning" by Jenny Joseph incidentally, which comes up most of the times I search).

Does this ring any bells with those more literate than I am?
