Edited by Debutante Clothing

I just turned 35. It’s a landmark year not just chronologically, but style wise. I am now approaching that next age bracket in the How to Dress for Your Age features in mags. You know the ones. Thank goodness for my blogger pals here at Independent Fashion Bloggers. You’ll find some of the best style guides here this week. Guides such as Mischief My Dear’s advice on finding the perfect LBD and Fasshonaburu’s Spring 2010 trends guide. But beware the urge to dress too sexy. 39th and Broadway tells you why toddlers and stilettos don’t mix, and Squareectomy questions the taste level of visible thongs. Enjoy!

I really hate those “how to dress your age” service features in magazines. They always put my age bracket in really dowdy maternal looks. Bleh. Anything goes in fashion. I believe in keeping it loose and liberal.

I turned 35 this year too! I think it’s been one of my best feeling years, in terms of life in general and my personal fashion choices.
