I’M an expatriate woman who has always been in awe of my female Bahraini friends – they are all so glamorous.
My friends tell me I need to dress younger! How? I have yet to find good fashion advice, let alone a clothing line, for short women.
When you’re young, you can wear oversized clothes, frilly or vintage. But when you’re older, cute is no longer an option. What do you wear when you’re 5ft and have put on a few pounds? It’s like trying to style a filing cabinet. They also tell me every woman should have a pair of red shoes in her wardrobe.
On a young woman, red shoes are sexy. But on an older woman, the message they give out is: ‘I’m on HRT, I’m panicking and I’m desperately trying to get your attention.
