Never a thing to wear
I'm sending a birthday card to my aunt who is turning 90 on Wednesday. I'm very proud to have a 90 year old aunt however I have only met her once so I might need to include some form of identification in with the card. This event leads me to think about what it would be like to turn 90. It would be challenging given that I can only afford to live to 65 so provided I'm not living in a cardboard box by the side of the road, my next immediate thought is, what would I wear? Having recently spent more time than necessary questioning whether it's still ok to wear footless tights or not, I'm wondering if there are fashion rules for being 90. Unfortunately vintage fashion just doesn't look any good on vintage people and I don't think I could bring myself to wear anything with colours that are referred to as fuchsia or tropical. Maybe I'll just sit around all day in my underwear and call it dementia.
