Do you aim for pretty or prensentable...

I'm posting this from the perspective of a 31-year-old... But I've always been "cute" rather than pretty. Well, now I'm starting to get the face I've earned, instead of the one I was born with. And I'm starting to get closer to pretty.

I hope by the time I'm not mis-posting by posting on this board I can pull of pretty. And maybe by 50 I'll be able to pull off beautiful.

(Translation: ITA with Speckla!)
The pews never miss a sermon but that doesn't get them one step closer to Heaven.

But at least the pews never attend yoga!
... And clothes! Why does it seem like everything is for teenagers, "red hat" ladies, or strippers?

ok, rant over. And no disrespect to the Red Hat Ladies. And of course, as we get older, we might want things a little looser. But some of these retailers geared toward "mature" women assume that we all have the same body type. In reality, slightly fitted clothes are often more flattering than the "Maude" outfits.

And yes, I second Ann Taylor.

I went to the grocery store yesterday & saw a woman in her 60's who looked like a clown. Her makeup was horrible. False eyelashes & lots of blush. It made me sad to look at her. I think she was aiming at pretty, but missed the mark.
From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
Both Pretty and Presentable!
