    This is such a great post and I have been trying to address the same topic in a funny way on my recent blog posts about the Victoria’s Secret “Angels”. I came to a place of deep acceptance in regard to my aging body and now take care of myself not to look better but to remain healthy and vibrant to live the life I now have more time and resources to live. I have chosen fashion as a way to express my attitude about all of this, not trends but rather as a way to become visible and express myself in a different way. Such an important message, thanks for working to get it putt there.
