MARIE CLAIRE MAGAZINE MY ANSWERS AGAINST AGEISM

Hi Everyone
Last week I was a little proud of myself! Marie Claire on line magazine got in touch about featuring in their #Break Free campaign. It's all about fighting ageism and how us more mature women go against it



If you would like to pop by and read what I had to say click HERE I would love to know what you think, and I would love to know what your views are on not feeling over the hill and how you combat this......



Now for my bargain find.....
Primark? Love it or hate it, sometimes I walk into my local Primark and it all just looks like a jumble sale in there. But I still push myself through that door on a regular basis, because every now an then you will find a gem. This dress cost me a mere £7.00 and I know it will be worn several way's for the next few winters. Primark also had this in black, and I wish I had bought that colour too....
(please excuse garden! Work in progress)



I teamed the dress with one of my favourite belts. I know the modern cool way to wear it would be to wear it loose, but rules are made to be broken and I prefer it this way. However there is a blooper in the way I have styled it! I so wish I had put my Knee high boots on instead of my shoe boots! We all have a blooper moment sometime right?
However I think a good pair of heels and some evening jewellery This dress could pass for a night out.


                                              shop the look !




Have you found any special bargains? Do tell!
XO Laurie
