Cicley Tyson, Helen Mirren & Rita MorenoIn our 60s, we are all facing new changes. Many of us are retiring, our bodies are changing and, some of us are dealing with new financial realities. All of these factors influence how we think about fashion for our bodies and we do not want to be Invisible. We want our clothes to represent our passion for life. But, with fashion designers firmly focused on the young adult market, it's hard for women over 60 to find inspiration. So, we must have the desire to look good to find clothing that fits the style we have developed. When you are a plus size older gal your options are not as plentiful so, you have to shop all over town and sometimes over into the next county. If you love to shop like I do, this is exhilarating. But, if you hate shopping you may end up with a closet full of matronly goods that you find online or from your friend's closet. Believe me when I tell you, nothing is better than a twirl in the fitting room mirror when you find an item that you love.
