I adore clothes but in the last few years my fashion confidence has been shaken. Sky high double platforms and skinny jeans left me on the sidelines in ballet flats and cardis thinking I'd reached the end of the fashion line. I love being my age and I don't want to dress like I did in my 20s or even my 30s which, for me, was like a decade dressed in variations of a black uniforms that travelled well. The "DYD" article proved that there's a way to be chic, sexy and appropriate and above all that that fashion is for everyone at every age.
One final thought... if you run the article again (and I really hope you will) I'd love to see your readers in different ages and sizes.
Great issue and great magzine. I will be back for MORE.
With best regards,
I've loved your magazine for years. Recently I had the March issue with me when visiting my mom. She was looking @ the article about fashion in your 40s, 50s, & 60s. She said to me "I thought you said this magazine was for older women. Where's the advice for my age group?" She's 84. It made me realize that women even in their 70s & 80s are more aware of fashion now than they used to be. I hope I'm like that when I'm her age.
Thank you for a great magazine. Keep doing what you're doing.
I couldn’t find the survey on your website, but wanted to let you know my feelings about your magazine.
I am just hopping over the 60 age divide and find that many things I thought were important in my youth…just aren’t.
Dressing, just right, or looking just right or even behaving just right, don’t carry as much meaning as they once did.
So frankly, I skip over all the ads for the latest beauty products and ignore the latest fashions finds highlighted in More.
I head straight to the stories of women who, like me, struggle with our daily lives. Women whose stories, in every issue,
make me cry. Women whose stories, in every issue, make me think about my life and the changes I need to make. Women
whose stories, in every issue, fill me with hope and pride and thankfulness that I am part of this incredible tribe.
I understand that advertising pays the bills. But it’s what’s in between those glossy pages that appeals to me and
makes me tear off the covering of More the minute it hits my mailbox.
And it’s why I am currently a subscriber until 2017.
Thank you for a meaningful magazine.
I have subscribed to MORE for 10 years. It was a gift when I turned 40. Boy, was I disappointed to see this month's cover WHAT TO WEAR WHEN YOU ARE 30, 40, 50. I guess I am in that last category now. This magazine is supposed to appeal to 40 and older. Sure on this inside, you have a page for those in their 60's, but the spread is lacking. I want to SEE real women in their 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's looking great doing amazing things. I have suspected for about a year or more that the demographic you are intending to reach is an audience including younger women. By appealing to this broader base, it seems you at MORE have watered down and compromised what was a great intention for a magazine. Looks like you are selling what all the other women magazines are selling. I hope you will reconsider the direction you are taking this magazine.
I am 65 and when I'm not in my blue jeans I live in leggings and big tops. I especially love my Eileen Fisher slouch sweaters over a pair of leggings--so there goes that rule!!!!
I do dress up on the rare occasion when I need to, but give me my leggings (and shorts in the summer) and I'm one happy woman.
