Musing 1318.224 Where's the Baby Boomer Haul?

This past weekend I discovered retail hauls on YouTube.
I realize I'm the last to the party on this, partly I think because while the ladies whose hauls I found myself binge watching were all lovely and extremely entertaining (Patricia Bright, Glitter+Lazers, Tiarra Monet), were much younger than my demographic, a woman of a certain age, namely over 50. Our figures, mine especially aren't the same as when we were 30 (thank God!) and I dread going to malls because on top of everything being either hoochie or dowdy, I've recently lost weight and at a weird in between stage. I went up from size 6 to 10/12 and now down to, what I'm not sure. This is why I've resorted to online shopping for most of my clothes, still, not an exact science and I'm struggling with finding something that's right for me.
By scouring YouTube I did find hauls for women my age but Christ Almighty the clothes for the most part were, dull, drab, no color to speak of and completely covered, from the rooter to the tooter! Extremely disappointing. I'm sure there is something more my style, I still like color, and occasional body con dress and yes, even show some skin. I thought it was interesting the hauls for the over 40 were more me, bright colors unique, stand out style, cute high heels, etc. I will say while searching for a pic to illustrate my frustration I stumbled upon what I appears to be a spiderweb of possibility, image links with cute, stylish clothes that give a sister some hope! I guess you know what I'll be doing this weekend....
