The above, what FSIL said?  Just rude.  And unneccessary.

Sis could turn it around and use comments that make it seem like SIL is very old. :)

Ah, so FSIL is subtly insulting DarkSister's clothes. In that case, "I'm sorry you don't like my clothes. Have you tried the beandip?"

A more pointed response would be, "Yes, it's amazing how much fashions have changed in the last 25 years. Have you tried the beandip?"
