Maxi Madness! Style Not Age Challenge

Gail Hanlon from style blog is This Mutton in green maxi dress from Asos

Dear friends.  A month has sped by and it's time for the Style Not Age Challenge.  This is when five women in their 40s, 50s and 60s set each other a style challenge each month. This time it was the turn of Hilda and she chose "Maxi Madness."

My maxi dress has been in the wardrobe for a while but the madness is, it's never been worn. I've mentioned before the strange psychological block I have with dresses, particularly long ones! I seem to think they need to be worn only at fairly formal events. 

A silky green maxi dress with gold stars is the choice of Is This Mutton's Gail Hanlon in the August Style Not Age Challenge, Maxi Madness

My dress has tiny gold stars on a green background, and is in a silky material. It came from Asos.  I'm wearing it with my old and much loved sandals from Accessorize. I can see now it's a good dress for a summer holiday. My next holiday is in the Lake District in a few weeks' time, so probably not appropriate for that!

Five different interpretations of the challenge Maxi Madness with Is This Mutton going for a silky green dress with gold stars.


Hilda bought her dazzling skirt from a local boutique and wore it recently on her and Graham's wedding anniversary when they stayed a night in a fab hotel and were upgraded to a suite. The top is old. Shoes from Asos. See more photos at Over the Hilda


Emma's wrap dress is by Stella Nova and was a gift from Jacynth at from The Bias Cut as a thank you for taking part in a campaign on social media. Emma says she loves it, it fits so well, and the colours are perfect for late summer/early autumn. The orange bag is from a local boutique. More pictures at Stylesplash


Jacqui's maxi is actually her my daughter's, and she says the madness is she managed to get into it and it's a size 10! The dress is from Asos. Jacqui wore her rust espadrilles, Steve Madden orange bag and a floppy hat. More pictures at Mummabstylish


The ever-colourful Anna is wearing her favourite pink and orange combination. Dress is from Hush last year, sandals and jewellery are all old. More pictures: Anna's Island Style
