"Helen Mirren's pink dress deserves an award" - The Sydney Morning Herald
If we can take anything away from this year's Oscars red carpet, it's that the mature set consistently does it better than the young'uns. Perhaps they know from experience which colours and shapes suit them, and how to hide their flaws and make their assets shine. These classy ladies (or their fabulous stylists) know that even the most expensive, fashionable or well-cut dress looks like nothing if it doesn't suit the wearer's skin tone, hair, body and makeup. The right combination, however, brings Marie Kondo-esque joy to both the wearer and the beholder. Go, you stylish "senior citizens"!
I had the privilege of attending a clothes swop party in my neighbourhood this weekend.
What a lovely way to meet my neighbours, quaff a few bubbles, and get some welcome additions to your wardrobe without paying a cent!
Everyone went home with something "new" - some lucky ladies left with bags full of clothes! - and fun was had by all.
If you live in Perth, let me know when you're hosting a clothes swop party, and invite me over for some (free) fashion advice!
