Ageless Beauty? Nah!




Writing a fashion blog entails a lot of effort and passion. You want to share your views on fashion and learn more from fellow fashion bloggers. As I go through so many fashion blogs one thing stands out. Most bloggers put up #OOTD regularly featuring themselves as models. Its so nice. I would love to do it too. But I have a problem. In fact two problems. No three maybe. Leave it. There are too many ”ifs and buts.”

First and foremost. I am 49 years old . Can I model my outfits or am I too old for that ?

Second equally important. I wear mainly Indian or fusion wear . Are there any takers for that?

Third. I am married and have been for 26 years. I have no boyfriend who could click my pictures with dedication and affection. Of course photographers wont have a similar passion. So I lose out on that.

Fourth.My son is a great photographer. You must have seen the photographs that I put up on my sites .They are all shot by him. But ,he doesn’t like to shoot people. Oh, are girlfriends not people. Every second his display picture on WatsApp is changed. He is there with ”people”. So may be I am a mom and so do not conform to his idea of an actual; person.

Fifth. Even if I overcome all the above, what should I do about the people around me who are ready to judge me? I am not the right age or in the right profession to model. What if my students come across my blog, or my children’s friends see me. Now that they say is going to be a disgrace. Especially when my daughter who is 26 , is about to be married. What will her husband and his family say?

So ,what do I do.Stop writing?

Can you wonderful people out there believe that I have not activated the Facebook option on publicize. THIS I HAVE DONE SO MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY DON’T JUDGE ME.

So what do I do?

To all my fellow women who are aging, you maybe be called a fashionista in your circles but mind it, you cannot model or put up pictures of you in interesting outfits on social media without being judged.

Lets think about a way out of this . Help me too. I am in a dilemma .
