 I'm right there with you on the shoes! I love my clogs
even though they look pretty clunky on my little feet. I figure when
we get to the age when comfort means more than style we
have truly arrived. I love being old enough not to care
what people think about how I dress, act or wear my hair! 
  


  Hi Rocky Mountain girl,


I agrees with about being older and more relaxed.  I used
to wear the high heel shoes and now I have sore feet.  I was in a
wreck several years back that crushed my right foot and no longer
CAN I WEAR THE high heels. I can’t, though sometimes I eye
them and remember when.  The clogs are the most comfortable shoes
around.  We must be about the same age.  Here is a picture
of me when I was 2 or 3.  Well, never mind - - I couldn’t
get it to work, perhaps later.

  Today I think it is almost impossible to show up anywhere I go
and be inappropriately dressed as long as my clothes are clean. 
And that is fortunate because almost anything I would buy at the Mall
today would be inappropriate for someone my age.


My idea of "appropriate" is not too bare on top, some sort
of sleeves to hide my wrinkled, sun-damaged skin, and long enough to
cover my knees.


Shoes are also difficult to buy and I am often
"inappropriate" in that category because I am unwilling in
most cases to wear shoes that will not allow me to walk comfortably.
As much as I think this pains my 14-year-old granddaughter, I still
opt for comfort.


Looking at some old pictures, I can see that my mother almost always
wore a well-tailored suit, stockings, low heeled shoes, a hat and
gloves when she went out. A lot has changed in just a few years. I
wonder what we will all be wearing, in order to be dressed
"appropriately", in 2028?

  I'm with you about the shoes, if they aren't shaped it fit a
foot I'm not wearing them.  I didn't like pointed toes the first
time they became popular (in the 60's) and I don't like them any
better now. I wear a flat heal to make my unstead walk safer and have
a maryJane style that I use for dress.
