The question for me, as I inch closer to 60, is, what is this about really? Is it just about the A-word, by which I mean age or perhaps ageism , or is it just tunnel vision about the size and shape of most women, by which I mean "we're all different, get over it"?
Is fashion fundamentally ageist and sizeist, or is it just that the aesthetic imperative rules no matter what? These are big questions to hit you with midweek and I don't know the answer but I suspect it largely depends on the pool in which you fish. If you can afford to fish in Chanel , you may well have the kind of figure that doesn't challenge the brand's idea of skinniness as the norm. Vivienne Westwood's designs are eminently suitable for older women — her new campaign features Leslie Winer , an older model, and she has three different ranges to suit different expenditures: Anglomania, Red Label and Gold Label.
The rise and rise of online shopping, with its speedy delivery and usually excellent customer service, has helped us a lot in one way and very much not helped us in another.
It is much kinder to your battered self-esteem to try your Agent Provocateur or Myla in the privacy — and kinder lighting — of your own bedroom, but I for one am often defeated by the sheer volume of choice and finish up ordering nothing after wasting an evening sifting through thousands of options.
I theorise that because online shopping removes the delightful touchy-feely aspect of clothes buying and relies on sight only, instead of employing all five senses, it might make for a more efficient shopping experience but ultimately a less pleasurable one. Has it just become too disappointing and too hard?
I care more about fit, comfort, ease of laundering and not spending astronomical amounts. Mail order has been a waste of time and money for me, as I really do need to try things on first hand for various reasons. We'll be in London staying in Bayswater area, but with good Tube connections and good general knowledge of London's geography for 8 days in mid-September, and I would love to see what is available, but it's a huge city and I won't have time to waste hunting for special shops or outlet centers on my own especially with a husband in tow.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I forgot to mention that Long Tall Sally was the other place I was aware of. I might go into the shop to see if it's different, but unfortunately, I didn't have good luck with what was available online.
You definately need to go to Long Tall Sally - their London store is on Chiltern Street and is one of the larger ones so it usually carries a good range. If you like their clothes you can also order online via their website: Dorothy Perkins do a tall range as the OP said - also Next at Westfield stocks a tall range shepherds bush tube stop.
I wouldn't get your hopes up too high. In 20 years I've never found any shop here that is all that good for tall women I don't like Long Tall Sally's range.
I used to go to an outlet that sold German designer clothes, which was much better but don't know of anywhere in London along those lines. Thank you for the warning! I approach shopping like this with hope, but a fair amount of cynicism too.
It's always a challenge. I actually live in The Hague right now. You'd really think I could find something in a country that has some of the tallest people in the world, but it's all either incredibly high priced I just cannot spend Euro on a pair of jeans or trousers that could end up ruined or lost in luggage etc.
Or they think if you're tall, you're automatically very thin, which I am not. In some cases, I'm finding that items don't hold up in the laundry very well either. Spending so much only to have it shrink even when the laundry labels are followed exactly is another problem I've encountered.
But the mail order options are very limited if you don't read the language fluently and the postal charges for returns are too much for me as well.
