Ok, when I rant about clothes for women of a certain age, I do of course mean clothes for me. I’m only just over 40, yet I’m starting to wonder what to wear and where to buy it. My staples are bought from Next and M&S but please don’t tell me it’s only a matter of time and I'll be looking at polyester and nylon tops in BHS. Save me from the vision of wide-foot sandals I know is hovering on my horizon. I want clothes that won’t push out cleavage / midriff / bum. I want clothes that aren’t see-through. I want clothes that Lily Allen wouldn’t want to wear for another twenty years. So where does a sane woman over 40 with a busy life flex her Maestro card these days on the UK high street to buy pretty, hard-wearing, long-lasting clothes? Your suggestions all welcome please. I mean it. I really do want to know.
