A 60-YEAR-OLD who loves wearing skimpy outfits and believes her legs are “as attractive as any 25-year-old” has hit back at cruel trolls who say she is “egotistical”.
Angela Cartwright, who is often mistaken for being 20 years younger than her real age, often posts photos online showing off her slim figure in tight dresses and cut-out swimsuits.
Speaking exclusively to Fabulous Digital, US-based Angela, from Missouri, has now responded to mean comments from trolls – and revealed fitness and anti-aging tips and tricks hers.
The age-defying beauty describes her style as “chic, sophisticated, sexy and a little flamboyant”, saying: “When strangers know my age, they often say I look like I’m in my 40s.” .
“Sometimes I get asked if I am a model now or have been a model.
“I tell them I model every day…I model all the time!”
But while some people believe that getting older means you should cover up, Angela couldn’t disagree more.
If you have beautiful legs, show them off no matter your age…and I think mine are sexy, and just as sexy as any 25 year old girl!
Instead, the timeless beauty, who wears styles that “look and make her feel good”, is a firm believer that age is just a number – and admits she doesn’t know how to “dress well”. What does “dress according to age” mean?
“This is me dressing my age,” Angela said.
“My age doesn’t stop me from wearing the styles I like, simply because they are styles that women I have not traditionally worn.
“People should wear what feels right to them based on who they are and fashion reflects my personality as well as who I am.
“I’ve always been interested in fashion and wearing slightly different styles.
“And for me, that means expressing my individuality through classy, glamorous and unique style and dressing.”
She added: “I’m proud to be 60 years old and consider myself AMAZING!!
“This is the 60s look for me and I love it!”
However, that hasn’t stopped Angela, who has been happily married for 27 years, from receiving negative comments from cruel online trolls.
Angela recalls: “On Facebook, two women commented that the dress I was wearing was too short because of my age.
“I didn’t answer because they have the right to their opinion.
“However, I think if you have beautiful legs, show them off no matter what age you are…my legs are as sexy and sexy as any 25 year old girl!”
She continued to say that on another occasion, a strange man online also commented that the bright yellow mini dress she was wearing was “too short”.
“Most of the feedback has been positive and appreciative of my style,” Angela explains.
I am proud to be 60 years old and consider myself AMAZING!! This is the 60’s look for me and I love it
“However, I have had trolls comment about me appearing too confident.
“And someone commented that I was looking for a d**k…I replied
that I get so much from my husband!
“I added that I simply love fashion and enjoy expressing my style.”
Angela went on to say that she doesn’t feel the need to “defend or apologize” for being herself, adding: “I won’t stop being myself because of my age.
“It’s just fashion and I’ve always loved fashion and that
doesn’t change as I get older…
“I wear clothes that make me look good and sometimes sexy…when you dress well, you feel good.”
For any older women worried about showing too much skin, Angela advises: “Don’t be ashamed to follow the same old rules – make your own!
“Mature women should embrace their age and embrace their fashion sense so that all of their awesomeness is on full display.”
And for those who want to know exactly how Angela stays so fit, you’re in luck… because she’s revealed all…
“I really believe in living a healthy lifestyle that includes daily exercise and eating a heart-healthy diet,” she says.
“In doing so, I have maintained a healthy mind and body as well as a body that I am proud to show off through what I wear.”
Angela explains that her daily workout includes 45 to 60 minutes on the treadmill, 15 to 30 minutes on the stationary bike, lots of stretching and balance training.
Additionally, she uses moderate-sized weights three times a week.
“In addition to a heart-healthy diet, I only drink water,” she explains.
“Do not drink carbonated drinks, coffee, tea or juice.
“I choose to eat fruit rather than drink fruit because most fruit juices contain sugar.
“I only drink alcoholic beverages in social settings.”
