I turned 40 on Friday. I'm now what my pals in Singapore would label an "old vegetable". A crunchy young thing no more.
I woke up yesterday thinking, just for fun, I should dress my age to go to the celebratory brunch instead of wearing my usual "young" clothes. You know, entertain my pals a little? But nothing I put on made me look 40. Lucky me, huh? Haha. Nanna-esque vintage dresses...pearls...pumps...all didn't work!
I gave up trying and went in this happy stripey thing from my stash of kiddie clothes - a sweater-dress made for a 12-year-old (with slight leg-of-mutton sleeves!). And felt kind of smug knowing that I have a few more years left to wear "youthful" clothes before I get the "mutton dressed as lamb" label slapped on me. Tee hee hee.
