    I think that sounds pretty cool, myself.

    Message T-shirts are tacky on everybody.

    Plastic 'jewelry' is junk no matter how young you are.

    Torn jeans don't even look good on the homeless.

    Giant gold lame` handbags bigger than a Samsonite suitcase have been ridiculous since they became (cough) stylish years ago.

    &&-- I'll wear any kind of damned underwear I please. None of yo bizness.

    i've always loved message Tshirts. Whether it be my Boston Celtics stuff, or down to one shirt that says Blow Me... i don't give a crap if you don't like it.

    i think you'd rather read it than have me say it outloud.

    Thankfully I have a 24 year old daughter to dress me! She keeps Momma looking good ? without looking like a desperate hoochie...I hope.

    LOL this is hilarious, I see women every day wearing all of this stuff, CA is so casual and everybody trying to look young. I have to agree with most of it, at my age I'd look a fool. I think when you try and dress too young it just makes you look older

    It doesn't really do you any good to look young from behind in your pleated mini and pigtails if you frighten people with your wizened hag face when you turn around. I've seen a few people who seemed unaware of that.

    I'm 40 and still do the white, ribbed tank top. I think it's fine. I buy the 6 pack at Target.

    Seven (for All Mankind) used to have a 100% cotton jean. They were my first pair. Impossible to find now. I've had mine for just about 8 years now. Well worth the investment.

    Gee, I have a couple more years till I have to stop wearing the overly decorated hobo bag that I don't have - and have to stop showing the excessive cleavage that I do have and have never shown anyway.

    Being that the majority of posters here are in their 30's and 40's, it's interesting that this article was posted.

    I don't get what is so wrong about a white ribbed tank top?? Unless I have the wrong image in mind.

    The rest of it I agree with but not because of age. Message tees, embellished denim, loud accessories, excess cleavage and mini skirts look tacky on everyone.

    I wear band shirts, sneakers, tanktops, plastic assecories, denim and whatever I damn well please until the day that I die.

    I love my message shirts too. I think everyone needs to know that Jake Ryan is my other boyfriend.

    I wear whatever I like. I don't claim to be stylish, classy, fashionable or whatever. I wear what makes me happy and whatever is clean. Fuck fashion, fuck stupid lists.
