Aphrodite/Baubo

Think this is right on track!

I like classic looks for dressing up and the rest of the time bohemian or outdoorsy.

Meg Ryan & Metis

by Sally Jardon
(California)

My fashion archetype, according to the test is Metis. My Fashion Goddess is Meg Ryan. I am giving this information some thought. Would you describe Meg as Metis?

Part of me relates more to Hecate. Now I am conflicted. I will need to study my wardrobe and try things on to determine where my sensibility lies. As we get older we change. Change can be good. I answered the questions honestly so I must evaluate my assumptions. Amazing that I might still be trying to "find myself" as it were. I will report back about my conclusions.

Sally

That's an interesting question, Sally: Is Meg Ryan a Metis? We have no way of knowing if she prefers quality clothing, which is part of the Metis archetype, but many celebrities can afford the best so they buy it. She does not wear anything too far out, and she is sophisticated, especially as she has gotten older. More important than what I think is what YOU think about this.

Hecate

by Linda Clark
(Las Vegas, NV)

I like the results - Hecate/Athena and Sophia - my Bohemian is less hippy than freedom of expression.
That said my song to express me is "forever in blue jeans" Neil Diamond.

I am retired and enjoy art, exercise, gardening and writing. I have a lot of wonderful friends who supported me through my breast cancer treatment. Since retiring I have lost 50 pounds and I am looking for an image update.

Sophia Style

by Deborah Syms
(Sutton, NE)

On my 59th birthday 2011

On my 59th birthday 2011

On my 59th birthday 2011 Me and my mother Me and my best friend Aug. 2011

I am the wife of a retired pastor who is at the verge of becoming a crop insurance agent in the Midwest region. We have two grown daughters and three granddaughters ages 4-5+. I live in jeans and pullovers/turtlenecks and comfy, casual clothing but dress up for Sunday worship either in dressy slacks and nice tops or skirts and sweaters.

The only jewelry I normally wear is small, studded ear rings (pierced) except for the occasional matching necklace and ear rings my daughters gave me. I love scarves but my husband does not like them (his mother never wore them). I wear an occasional brooch or pin especially during the holidays. I almost always wear makeup and do my hair before I leave the house. I wear glasses.

I am 5' 7" and weigh 180 (losing weight juicing at the moment and have 20 lbs to go to reach my goal of 160 lbs.).

I color my hair light ash brown to avoid going completely gray. I will turn 60 in 4 months.

Metis

by Pamela
(Salt Lake City, Utah)

I am still evolving and looking for a style that is me. I have a habit of buying what's on sale and then not wearing it because it
either isn't me or doesn't go with anything.

I have no idea how a 60 year old woman should dress. I have been out of the work force for 10 years and have basically lost all sense of fashion.
I have a
closet full of long sleeved tees, levis and clothes I haven't worn in two years.

I can't seem to get rid of anything,
I always think if something is damaged or stained, oh, I can wear that out in the yard this spring, or I can wear that when I paint or craft etc.

I have always been on the thin-side and am now having problems with weight gain, I go from a size 6 to a 10, and feel like an 8 is where I should be, but can't seem to stay there.
As you can see I am frustrated and that is why I started looking at how to change my style or get one.

Metis Sets Standards for Others to Emulate

by Laurie
(Canada)

I prefer to purchase quality clothes that have a timeless appeal, and spice them up with accessories.

I confess I am a bit of a snob when it comes to dressing inappropriately for any occasion. It is important to me to set an example to my daughters, and to the students I work with by taking care of my appearance and dressing to match the occasion.

I believe every woman can look good at any age or size if she only takes the time to select clothing and accessories that are right for her - and not just the latest fashion.

I Have None

by Phyllis R. Baer
(Saegertown,PA)

I'm just a plain old 75 country gal. I neither feel my age nor do I look my age. I love the out of doors except when it gets above 75 degrees. I can handle the cold but not the heat.

I dress in skirt,blouse. flats. and a hat. If it looks appropriate, I wear a blazer. But always a hat to match my outfit.

I shop for groceries, etc. the same way except I don't wear a hat, and some time I wear slacks instead of a skirt.

Outside I wear short and tea shirt in the summer, barefoot most of the time. In cooler weather, I dress in jeans and t-shirt or sweatshirt with tennis shoes and socks.

In winter when I'm blowing the snow out of my drive-way or just shoveling steps, I wear a snow suit, insulated boots gloves and a warm fuzzy hat. In the house I wear shorts and in hot weather, barefoot. Cooler weather jeans and t, tennis shoes and socks, in winter it's sweats for me.

I like jewelry and wear it when I go shopping or to church. It's not real expensive but it is fine jewelry.

I wear make up when I go out and some times if I'm feel down, I put make up on to wear at home, even a little jewelry and perfume. It raises the emotions. Great life we have. I wouldn't have it any other way Phyllis R. Baer

Aphrodite/Baubo

by Barbie Tolson
(Fort Worth ,TX)

Hello.

I am a 55-year-old woman.I have children in college and have fallen into the hum drum of thinking I am to old to dress with flair.

I became lazy and now need some help. I don't want to dress to young for my age; however that being said I don't look my age.

I am 5'2' and weigh 116. I am petite and have a good figure. I love to feel pretty and sexy and dress with a confidence that when I walk into a room I will get a positive glance from men and women ,that look that says she positively okay with who she is and she looks great doing it.

I have blonde and brown eyes with a hint of green.

I dont' wear a lot of make-up everyday but, when I go to the movie or to dinner I will pick it a notch.

Would greatly appreciate any ideas and advice.

Hi Barbie. A good place to start is the basic wardrobe planning page and the color coordination page. I include tips for various figures when I write. Only you can decide how much you want to emphasize your large bosom with ruffles and low-cut garments and when these are appropriate for the environment. Going out is one thing; going to work is another.

Hecate, Bohemian and Free Spirit

by Christine
(Santee, CA)

Ever since I turned 60, I have wanted to look my age. I like the fact that my hair has white hairs in it and that I have wrinkles. I do not and will not compete with my daughter to look like her.

She is slender and has blond hair I am overweight and have salt'n'pepper hair.

I like old clothing and accessories as well as furnishings in my home. I like Grannie Chic! She likes trendy and new. I can't help it. I also like hippie styles, but not the newer hippie styles.

I was there for Woodstock and the era that was Hippiedom. Makes me sad that it is gone.


I like grannie shoes worn with socks or support hose, I like pearls, hankies, small purses, shawls and warm woolen coats. I like furniture and furnishing that look lived in. Antiques are great for me. I don't like track housing, apartments and townhomes(although I have lived in some that were nice). I like the woods and if I lived close to one, I would be there all the time. I like the beach and the surrounding community, I also like to ride a bike to work or anywhere else. I have never driven a car, but I like public transit and my bike. I like classical music, as well as oldie rock and blues. I do not like it here in California.
