I’ll be 41 on Friday. I’ve been thinking that it’s time to cut my hair off. I’ve have had long hair for about 15 years now. I shed everywhere, a lot. And I’m starting to really notice the gray. Plus, the long hair is starting to not fit my age. I need to take the plunge and have been considering a somewhat spikey, dyke-y short, short cut. I just need to convince myself that I won’t look like a chipmunk.
Speaking of not fitting my age… I’ve discovered that I can still buy underwear, socks and some jeans at Lane Bryant but that’s it. Everything else is just scary — capris, baby doll tops, flared pants, mini-skirts, etc. — all looking like pseudo 60’s and 70’s fashion. And rayon and satin are back! Aside from the aforementioned necessities, there wasn’t a damned thing in the store that I didn’t either laugh at or want to run from, or both. It occured to me that the clothes were too juvenile for me, and therefore, I must be old. So please, tell me, where do I find conservative, classic and casual, 40’s +, dyke-like clothes, in larger sizes? I mean, aside from the khakis and polos I can order from Land’s End?
