At What Age Are You Too Old To …

10 September, 2013

Wear fluro? As in a fluro yellow Lycra mini skirt?

This was the question I threw at my squabbling daughters this afternoon after we ran into a lady wearing such.

Let me add a full description for you before I tell you my little possums’ answers.

On pulling out of the fuel station this afternoon (and whilst my children bitched the shit out of something insignificant), we saw an amazing lady, albeit senior citizen pushing her wheelie walker along the footpath. She was being helped along by her chihuahua, which seemed to have the routine down pat… Strutting off in front that is.


Her sense of fashion had me in awe but when I yelled out to the chickies in the back to check out that ladies skirt, they both rolled their eyes.

This fashionista was wearing a groovy tshirt, the most amazing pair of sunglasses AND a fluro lycra mini skirt. I will add she had fabulous pins too. (Legs that is not hair pins). She would of been at least 70 too!

At this point I asked the fashion police in the back to please tell me at what age are you too old to wear fluro?

Miss M – hand up waving around says, 36 Mum, don’t get any ideas.

Miss I – do not even go there Mum.

Whilst they discussed between each other how embarrassing it would be to see their 36 year old mother wearing fluro, I sighed with relief at just how easy it was today to distract them from the usual Nuclear Fall out that occurs when the car starts.

Now … Shall I get myself a fluro skirt and use it as a form of punishment to young ladies that like to beat up on each other in the car?

Yes I might.

NB : This revelation is brought to you by a big banging headache that I have whinged and complained about to myself all day..and maybe a little on social media too.

UPDATE : it is now dinner time … The Fashion Police are still debating the topic. Mr MMM has stated being a child of the 80’s he says never!!

    Yes you absolutely should get a yellow fluro mini skirt. Pair it with a mid drift top for the school pick up. That’ll learn ’em.
    BTW – 36 is a whipper snapper.

    Ask them again when they reach 36! Cheeky Monkeys! But having said that – sometimes it is better to dress to your body shape before you follow the latest fashion – no matter what your age!
