Style at Every Age: 40

Our second feature is on the ladies in their forties! We’re excited to introduce you to Judy, Tamara, and Sherri!

Judy: 40, Finance manager

How would you describe your personal style?

Simple & classic.

When did you start shopping at Mad?

I’ve been shopping for about 7 years. I think I found out about you guys from Facebook (back when Facebook was cool lol).

What do you love most about shopping at Mad?

What don’t I love?! I love the friendly atmosphere, and the staff’s suggestions. It’s like walking into your girlfriend’s closet.

When you are shopping, what pieces do you look for?

I love dresses and jumpsuits, simple things that make you look put together.

Do you have a fave piece that is your go-to?

(Nicola: This might be a hard question because your Mad closet is quite large haha)

I actually do! A dress I got 2 years ago, it’s black strapless with faux feathers! All time fave. I haven’t worn it since that event so shout out to my husband, he should take me out for a fancy dinner hehe!

Sherri: 48, Works from home for husband’s company!

How would you describe your personal style?

It is eclectic! It is everywhere, wherever the wind flows each day is what I gravitate towards!

When did you start shopping at Mad?

I think 2 years ago!

What do you love most about shopping at Mad?

I love the staff! I kinda feel like the popular girl when I walk in. I know some of the girls went to school with my daughters so it’s like “how’s your mom,” you know catching up. I like the personal, back & forth rapport that you have in person, and over Instagram DM!

How do you shop, what do you gravitate towards in the shop?

When I see something on Instagram and I love it, I always come in and try it on. It doesn’t necessarily always suit me but I love to try new things. I’m more gravitating towards the jumpsuits & rompers. I also love the dresses with a ruffle on the bottom!

Do you have a fave piece that is your go-to?

My Christmas dress last year! It’s burgundy lace with a ruffle on the bottom, I just felt good in it, and I felt comfortable! It fit my body and suited a shorter girl!

Any style tips you’d like to share?

In the last couple years my body has changed, some things that I used to gravitate towards don’t work in the way I want anymore. I’m always open to trying on everything that I like! Sometimes I hear, oh short people can’t wear this or that but I can! I’ve started taking pieces to the tailor to get minor alterations then the style works after that and it’s worth it!

Tamara: 40, Stay at home mom.

How would you describe your personal style?

I like to be polished and put together. I love colour, shift dresses and great solid pieces!

How did you start shopping at Mad?

Someone bought me a bright blue and yellow top for Christmas and after that I was hooked!

What do you love most about shopping at Mad?

What I love about shopping at Mad is that it’s affordable and there are so many beautiful trendy pieces! There are lots of feminine pieces that I love!

When you are shopping, what pieces do you look for?

Lots of dresses, flowy tops, rompers and cute shorts! Easy to wear things, I have 3 kids so I like finding good everyday wear!

Do you have a fave piece that is your go-to?

I really like my waffle knit top! It’s one of my all time favourites, I got it in two colours!

How do you shop, what do you gravitate towards in the shop?

When I shop, I’m thinking about how things will work with what I already have, what it matches with, how it’ll suit my body type. I tend to gravitate towards more flowy, shift style dresses!

Any style tips you’d like to share?

Be brave and always go for the bright colour!
