Three excellent reasons to decline arguments on the internet
by George Bernard Shaw
1. I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.
2. Choose silence of all virtues, for by it you hear other men’s imperfections, and conceal your own.
3. There is no satisfaction in hanging a man who does not object to it.

I don’t usually editorialize here, but I can’t help saying how pleased I was with comments on the previous image. Older women are seriously underrepresented in mainstream and fashion media—which is stupid, when you consider “older women” include some of the most elegant, avant-garde and inspiring people out there.
For more great pictures and killer style, check out age of happiness and advanced style. On this blog, I tag my images of women (mostly) over 50 with when I grow up. For men, try when you grow up.
And for those who suggest these women are the exceptions, I agree: not every nana is Helen Mirren. Then again, not every 22-year-old is Emma Watson…
