Young Looking at 41!

nan03August 8, 2006

I know some people would not think of this as a problem in this youth-obsessed world. I am 41 yrs old and look extremely young for my age that it is almost embarassing when I tell people my age. In fact, I got proofed for a drink recently at a concert. I think I dress appropriate for my age but I am petite which just adds to the "youth" look!! Any tips would be appreciated.

I can't believe this is really a huge problem for you! But, if you are really concerned with looking more "serious" here goes. Don't shop in the Junior Department, head for the Petite Department. Buy more tailored, structured clothes as opposed to cotton jersey tops, etc. If you wear long hair, don't wear it in a ponytail or cut it to shoulder or just below shoulder length. I can't think of anything else right now.

You are joking ,right? Girl, enjoy your luck and don't complain about looking young - or before you know it the "Wrinkle Goddess" will say - "hey, we forget her!" LOL

I don't look 51 and love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like to tell people that I'm 10 yrs OLDER than I am, that way they think I look so good for my age! So far, this works for me. hahaha!
