QW 020712 “Simon Doonan 3”

This is the third QW post transcribing an excerpt from a podcast called “Conversation with Slate: Simon Doonan”. Simon Doonan is “the Creative Ambassador-at-Large of the New York City-based clothing store Barneys (Wikipedia)”.
Note: The part indicated [ ] is what I think I’ve heard, but I decided to leave as it is after listening more than 20 times although I’m aware it’s grammatically incorrect in my understanding.

Simon on the fashion for adult women:
(Question) At what age does an adult woman in skinny jeans start to look like “Mutton dressed as lamb”?
(Laughs) See? Women say things like that. “Mutton dressed as lamb”. Women are very are mean to each other. If I see a poultry chick going down the street in skinny jeans, I think “You go, honey!” You know, in our day and age, you’ve got the courage to pull on some skinny jeans and walk down the street, and be happy. Then, isn’t that something to celebrate “New”. Your sister’s gonna call you as “Mutton dressed as lamb”. That’s such a horrid expression, and it implies that, you know, some people are mutton, some people are lamb, the mutton people are never allowed to try pass [sic] themselves as opposite. It’s very divisive… If I was an old chick, I probably would go to Irene Fisher. Actually, I think Irene Fisher is an incredible company and they do amazing stuff. What you do is you buy the basics which are incredibly comfortable, like a black tunic with a little black clamdiggers you wear underneath. And then, you wear really demented things on top of it, like amber beads and turquoise jewelry. You know, that’s I would do if I was an old chick… [There’s tremendous destined (?)] in our culture, “Older people, fat people, blah, blah, blah, …” And I’m very against that. I’m all about like “Buy a blue stippled wig like and have fun!”. Stop being so self-critical, telling your friends “Mutton dressed as lamb”.
