Trying Too Hard

You know, we women in our thirties (and those in their forties) have a confusing path to tread, fashion-wise.

But we are perhaps a bit wiser - and maybe a bit saggier - than we were in our twenties, and so we are constantly walking the line between "provocative" and "modest," "hip" and "classic," "vixen" and..."mom." There is always the fear that we will expose our desperation, that we will look like we are trying too hard.
