What is your life age? You know that gap between your actual age and how old you feel. When I turned 50 and had my “wake up” call, I think the age I felt at the time was closer to 60 and 70 and that was how I was dressing at the time!
I am in process of reading a book titled Inspired Design, a collection of essays by Image Consultants and Stylists from around the country. In her chapter, Looking Great at Any Age, Alison Vaughn writes, “Your image depends on how your LIFE AGE works with your personal style. The more the two are in harmony, the more together your image. Your LIFE AGE isn’t just about your chronological age; it includes how you look, act, think, feel and much more. This is the age you want to represent through your personal style. A woman wears her life age like a garment. It says more about her than she could ever say with words.” Now, my life age is really in the 40s…hence the name over50feeling40! I would say that now I have a 10-15 year gap between my age and life age!
