    Well I must be a dinosaur too and I regularly despair at peoples low standards of dress. I live opposite a Primary school and every morning I see Mums with a coat thrown over their pj`s or onesies bringing their kids to school. It would take 5 minutes to put on some proper clothes.
    Another thing which baffles me is why some women buy clothes which are obviously too small and why they simply don`t buy a larger size. Even the most carefree of people must be able to see when something is too tight, too short or shows up every lump and bump. I`ve seen many a nice outfit look horrendous simply because someone has squashed themselves into the wrong size.
    Oh and shoot me down for this one but my pet hate is when women with lily white and often not very nice legs go without tights when wearing short dresses. There`s nothing like pale, dimply, mottled legs and thighs, sometimes in need of being exfoliated and defuzzed, poking out from underneath a short skirt or dress for spoiling the image and the same applies to feet which are in dire need of TLC too. Tights may not be the most comfortable of things but they can at least cover up a multitude of sins.

    Iím fed up with the lot of them. Crap products,especially the clothes, far too much beauty stuff, expensive gardening. I find the presenters loud,rude, OTT, smarmy, occasionally economical with the truth. Completely rubbish styling that makes products look worse rather than accentuating their good qualities.

    I used to really enjoy QVC even if it was just on in the background but now it irritates me.

    I don’t do Facebook but just looking at some reviews on the Q website I can’t believe how grovelling people are thanking companies for bringing items to QVC! One I saw for a Butler & Wilson necklace with the writer in wonder how someone as busy as Simon Wilson could find time to bring items to QVC so us mere mortals could buy!!
    It was ‘toe curling’—- he & others are delighted to be there,their bank balances are growing by the second!

    The other day AY had a pale peach / taupe top on which had delicate fabric on the yoke. She was wearing a black bra underneath so the straps were clearly visible on the shoulders. The top had quite a bit of detail on it but all you could focus on were the ghastly bra straps. I know some young people are quite happy with this type of look but for someone her age doing her job I felt it totally inappropriate.

    Pet hate for me. I know young ones wear it but in my day it was a sure sign of a lady of the night.

    Sadly Vienna our standards are from another era. My Mum was a gal in the 40's and despite working in the munitions factory and wearing a turban to protect her hair, with friends they would always dress up when going out in their pretty 40's frocks. Then I came along for the 60's generation, with Cathy McGowan hair and minis (with tights !) and low heeled shoes - NEVER stilettos, we always looked well turned out. I cant ever remember anyone looking slovenly like the sights I see walking around today. Even some of our politicians and talking heads on the tv have forgone the tie when wearing a suit.

    Strangely when I attend a function, be it wedding, or night out, I tend to feel overdressed until I start getting the compliments - so who's right ?

    I also couldn't agree more about those who pour themselves into too tight clothes - normally tops. Today it seems that no-one is bothered what they look like. I constantly look in the mirror for any lumps or bumps on display - mainly for fear of what other people will see, and I am concerned about that, which shows a pride in how I look - something lacking in today's mainly younger generation.

    If in doubt I always go up a size but then I’m not influenced by the number on the label.

    In the summer I am a 14 (maybe even a generous 12) but in winter I am a 16 and even a 18. However this week I have purchased tops, jeans and coats ranging from a 10 up to an 18. Whilst I appreciate shape will make a difference sizing has gone to hell in a handcart in all shops and ranges.
