When I Get Older …

🎶When I get older, losing my hair, many years from now🎶 … I want to be like these guys.

Taiwanese couple Wan-Ji (83) and Sho-Er (84) are an Instagram sensation, famous for posing in edgy outfits against the backdrop of their laundry shop. Choreographed by their grandson, the stylish couple vogue it up for the camera, much to the delight their 50,000+ following.

“They dress more hip than i do,” wrote one commenter.

“Living their best life in their 80s!! Now THAT’S #couplegoals” said someone else.

According to the account, the clothing are all items left behind by customers over the years. The idea to model the outfits came from their grandson who wanted an activity to relieve them of boredom.

“Hoping to let everyone know that age is not a barrier,” the post reads, “to have fun in fashion and even old clothings can transformed into trendy outfits!”


Hmmm. Now, I can’t get that Beatles song out of my head

🎶Will you still be sending me a Valentine , Birthday greetings bottle of wine 🎶 ... If we could dress like Wan & Sho-ER, we could tear up the floor ... 🎶Will you still need me, will you still feed me, When I’m eightyfour 🎶

  1. Oh thank you, thank you, thank you, Sandy for this wonderful little post. I follow this adorable Japanese couple who always wear matching outfit (I’ll have to search for their names…) but these two!! How I want to become so cool. And what a fabulous story that the grandson is involved in the whole process. I love it to bits.
    Bonus point for the Beatles vibe.
