I

recently started sliding down the slippery slope that’s the wrong side of 35. Not an easy thing when you still feel 18 years old. But when I think about it rationally, I have aged. Let’s face it, one husband, two kids, a mortgage and ‘big job’ later, life can be a serious business that is more demanding than carefree. Still, I look up to women who, no matter how old they are, are young at heart and mind. This sense of stylish exuberance is often most evident in the way they portray themselves to the world, whether it’s as subtle as a quirky print or cheerful handbag, or as statement-making as 91-year-old Iris Apfel’s outrageous ensemble on the cover of Dazed & Confused magazine. I hope that I am able to embrace ageing as happily as these women, who celebrate that with maturity comes the ability to shrug off social pressure around what is, and isn’t, fashionably acceptable. Travel this journey with Club this month as we explore style at every age, from our young and sexy cover girl, Ines, who struts her stuff in a Free 2BU peplum dress to our take on giving timeless pieces a fresh spin in our Kelso editorial, page 74. We also bring you make-up tips for the older woman and two writers battle it out as they debate whether style should always be age-appropriate. No matter how ‘young at heart’ you are, as always, happy shopping!

PRIZE LETTER I’d just like to say how pleasantly surprised I’ve been by Edgars Club magazine. I immigrated to South Africa from Australia nine months ago and initially believed that SA is a bit behind the times. But I take my hat off to you, Edgars. You have all the latest fashion, plus the way the magazine is put together – including the features and Club rewards – is world class. The fact that it’s delivered to my door is another big tick in my book. I am one happy customer! – Melissa Carson

I’ve been a Club member for a few years now and simply could not believe my luck when an Edgars representative called to say that my account balance had been cleared. I almost fell off my chair! Currently changing jobs, I was worried about my premiums and account. Thanks to Edgars, a huge burden has been lifted from my shoulders. – Trisha Dhoda

Thank U rewards We hear what you have to say

LOTS TO ENJOY I’m head over heels for Club magazine’s fantastic new look. With so much fashion, entertainment and discounts, one really doesn’t know where to start. I’m also really enjoying earning Thank U points whenever I shop. Thanks for making life easier – I hope I can inspire more customers to join the Club. – Liesel Lawrence DOUBLE THE FUN I was feeling stressed from studying for exams but that vanished when Edgars informed me that my Thank U points had been doubled. Very excited, I rushed to Edgars and bought some sexy lingerie at almost no cost to myself. – Matshidi Phathela

WIN

Love those curves

I have to give a curtsey to whoever thought of bringing the Penny C and Merien Hall ranges to Edgars. Instead of being restricted to stores that offer ‘granny clothes’ for us fuller figures, I can now wear leggings, jeans, jumpsuits and other fashionable finds that make me (and my voluptuous curves) feel beautiful and sexy. – Mpume Madubane
