Yep, Beauty Is In The Eye of The Beholder

Do you ever pass a stranger on the street and immediately notice her ravishing hair?

Her incredible jewelry? Her absolutely stunning outfit? She looks so great, you even stop and turn around to watch as she walks away.

Or, you notice her, but for dramatically different reasons. Her unseemly makeup? Her unfitting pants? Her unbecoming ensemble? “Where did she ever find that getup?” you say to yourself. “Who does she think she is, wearing those ridiculous shoes?”

You know the adage: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” So true, isn’t it?

We thought it would be fun to see which of these looks we bless and which we boo! Have fun. There’s really no right or wrong. We’re FabOverFifty, and the only “fashion gods” we should be worshipping are ourselves. So there, Anna Wintour!

    After a certain age, we should be able to express ourselves however we choose. I love animal prints and will probably have a leopard cane when the time comes!

    I love them all. It’s empowering to see that we can all have our personal style as we age. I am sometimes fearful that I dress too young for my age, and then I think — who cares!!!

    Well that was interesting and fun. I know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I do think some of these looks are funky (but not in a good way). :-0

      Hi Nancy,

      Personally, I love the jewelry looks, too. I think more is better when it comes to jewelry, provided you put the right layers together.

    I personally don’t like some of these looks but I believe we should each wear what we like, especially as we age. We don’t really care what anyone else thinks, do we?

      Hi EWhatley,

      I don’t think we do!

    You are so right…definitely in the eye of the behold near. Some FOF’s can carry off things that others the same age can’t. All part of the total look.

    That was fun AND fascinating. Really makes us wonder how some women can get away with wearing outrageous styles to their advantage while others simply cannot!

      Great point, Anne-Marie. Glad you enjoyed it. I agree, it does make you wonder. Maybe if you think you can pull it off, you actually do.
