After twenty some years in a big company, I am now working in my own business. I can handle what to wear to interviews, and very uptight meetings. But the whole casual chic thing is a mystery to me. My style rules were formed when bell-bottoms and hig-huggers were in the last time, and I am not talking about this century. I want to look attractive, but age-appropriate. I don't want to look like I am wearing a sack, a tablecloth, or my grandmother's curtains. Or my grandmother's clothes, even though they probably fit.
I've given up on make-up. I know I'm not supposed to use blue eye-shadow, and thick black eyeliner, but I don't know what to do instead. My face gets red in strange places (between the eye brows) and blush doesn't seem to be in the right place.
So a make-over is what I need to join the new decade. Being only two years behind instead of twenty should be a massive improvement. And - it should improve my track record in the job market. My kids tell me I still look beautiful, but the compliments come with a side order of requests for computer time, allowance advances, and time with friends. (My kids practice the fine art of well-timed flattery.)
