Yesterday I wrote about the amazing fashion model Carmen Dell'Orefice.  Her longevity in a very appearance oriented and youth favouring profession is definitely the exception and not the rule.  That got me thinking about myself.  I am middle aged according to statistics.  To be honest, I am most likely already over that hump and it's all downhill from here.  I have found myself fighting the aging process with vigour.  By that I don't mean frequent trips to the plastic surgeon or to the cosmetics counter for a lot of lotions and potions.  I try to eat well, be well-groomed and tend to dress a lot younger than my age. 
The ageless Cindy Crawford
 I have wondered recently if my style of dress isn't appropriate anymore?  Despite my age, I still feel young and luckily I look younger to others.  Hey, this year's St. Patty's day will never be forgotten as I got asked I.D. at the nearby Irish pub.  I'll savour that memory for awhile!!  But I digress.  At what point do I switch up my cute heels for sensible shoes?  I've seen those Oprah episodes when they've done "makeover interventions" on women who live in denial of their age.  I don't want my friends or family secretly emailing about me to the new TV chat show host of the moment.
How old do you think

 I've noticed that women of decades past - especially those from the mid 20th century and older, looked very conservative and it was hard to imagine that they ever looked like young women.  It's as if they went from pigtails to pearls and apron in the blink of an eye.  Why was that I wonder?  It doesn't seem as much that way today.

So what do you think?  Do I give in to the middle age vibes or do I just cover up my ears so as not to hear any evil?
