Mutton Dressed as Lamb

As they say in the States - here's the thing...
I've been given this pretty top by my friend who was given this pretty top by her friend who was given this pretty top by her cousin. My friend won't wear it because she has a spotty back, her friend tried it on for her husband and he burst out laughing so she won't wear it; don't know why the cousin won't wear it...
I'm perfectly happy to wear it, in the privacy of my bedroom, but before I slap on some make-up and venture out into the world I need to know - is it too young for me? Afterall I'm on the 'wrong' side of 40 and my boobs have breastfed four children.
Perhaps I should wear a nice cardigan over it?


  1. Anne, this top is gorgeous - I'm a huge fan of that shade of green - and you've certainly got the figure for it. My only worry is that you may attract some unwanted male attention. In an ideal world women could wear what they like - but for God's sake men beep their horns at me and I go out dressed like a docker most days. Maybe a light bolero cardigan over the top? And by the way you look 30 at the most. Wish I looked like you in a pair of jeans.

  2. I think the colour suits you! I agree with Sharon above, you certainly don't look anywhere near 40. I managed to get a hold of a copy of The Revenge of Lady Muck today - really enjoyed it and wrote a wee review on my blog :)
