You Can't Buy Class

AH, one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite people, one of my BFs, Smiles (all names on this website have been changed to protect the GUILTY). SO I promised you an update from the concert last night and here I am sitting in the chair at the salon, getting cut and colored (or as one of my friends calls it clipped and dipped). The Billy Joel/Elton John concert was amazing and I had a great time with my girls. Although, we did get SHUSHED by a woman in front of us, which I found amusing as everyone in the stadium was making noise, but we got shushed. Listen lady, this is a concert at Wrigley Field, not the opera or the symphony, get over yourself.

Anyway, here it is, LADIES, please, please dress for your age and body type. Case in point, one woman at the concert, who was attractive, fit, and about 55ish, was wearing a VERY short skirt (we were very glad that we did not get her WHO-WHO flashed at us) and a tight tank top. Now, I understand that I am not the audience for whom she was dressing, but ladies, have some class. This woman would have looked just as attractive in a skirt that hit at her knees and nice fitted V-neck t-shirt or tank.

Body type! Ok, unless you are Gwyneth Paltrow (LOVE her fashion sense) or Heidi Klum, both of whom could wear just about anything and look fabulous, there are certain fashion styles that just don't work with your body type. FOR EXAMPLE, I am going to break it down for you, I have a a big OL' bootie (thanks, Dad, ain't genetics a bitch). And skinny jeans are a very hot fashion style right now, which I like. But by ESSENCE of the name...SKINNY, one would make the logical assumption that you should be SKINNY to wear them. And since I am not skinny, I do not wear them, because, well I wouldn't look good. However, a very nice pair of Joe's boot cut jeans do look good on me.

If you have a muffin top (mine is ALMOST gone, thanks Jazzercise), don't wear a tight fitted halter top that will extenuate it. A looser, longer halter top would look just as attractive and may show off your fabulous lats in your back. Oh yeah and wear the appropriate bra for the halter top, no party hats please.

The bottom line is that you don't have to be a runway model to look fabulous, I see normal sized women (which BTW is a size 14) look fabulous everyday. Ladies, I know that you are all beautiful, intelligent women, so as you get ready to go out this weekend, check that mirror (I am so obsessive about this), be a LADY, have some class and make sure you are body and age appropriate.

Have a great weekend. Cheers and CIAO BELLAS!
