I have a feeling your going to be in trouble for using the term "elderly" for 55 year old women!
Hmm...I was wondering why in the world you said this, and then...I saw it...the 'edited' note. Fwan!!
haven't you met any older women yet whose vibrancy and beauty of spirit shines through their eyes? Even when I was in my teens and 20's, I remember meeting women like that, including a woman in her 80's at a country wedding of one of my cousins. She was **lovely** - and it had nothing to do with her age, her wrinkles, her white hair...vibrant blue eyes, a smile to die for, and a strength of spirit.
I guess as one get's older, what is old moves back farther and farther.
I do recall when I thought hitting 10 would be awful 'cause I'd be in double digits!
But seriously, elderly is not 50 something!
No suggestions re your mom, find out what colors look best on her, consider a nice pant suit or a dress with a fancy overcoat - like this one http://catherines.charmingshoppes.co...1014474&nav=C1
ps ignore the color of the example...and pps, forgot about the heat!
