Karen and Beverly, sisters from England, say they have a nickname—the kiddie bag girls.

Both women carry purses decorated with colorful cartoons and wear shoes that resemble hospital slippers.

Beverly may be 50, but Mary Alice says she's wearing a purse designed for a 16-year-old. "For the first time, I'm going to have to tell a woman to act her age," Mary Alice says. "Your bags were too young. Your shoes are too old."

With a little help from our style team, Beverly looks years younger in studded ankle boots, black tights and a DKNY outfit. "When you've got curves—some thighs and some booty—the ankle boots add proportion," Mary Alice says.
