Let me start by saying this post was brought on by a comment I recently read on Facebook (which is ironic because for the most part everything on facebook annoys me...including said comment).
It was a girl saying something to the effect of "why do girls care whether or not other girls wear SKIMPY COSTUMES on halloween" and "the only girls who complain about this are the ones who DON'T LOOK GOOD in skimpy costumes, they are just jealous", how trite and cliche right?.............Usually I would have just gone about my day but now I'm all fired up.....To the first part: you are correct, I am so thankful that my life involves so much more than caring about what you choose to clothe yourself in.......to the second part: you are 100% FALSE!!!!!!
Now, I'm coming from a place of newfound wisdom on this issue.....I'm not "hating" on you because I'm jealous that you look better in a skimpy costume than me, its quite the opposite in fact. I can pretty much GUARANTEE you that I feel just as SEXY in a sweatshirt, flannel vest and jeans as you do in your bra and underwear that you refer to as a "costume".
I don't know, maybe its from motherhood or just GROWING UP that I feel this way because I'm not like a staunch feminist (although I am a huge advocate for women's rights) but I would like to point out that I love my body....I actually am way more comfortable in my own skin after I had my son than I was in high school or college....HOWEVER.....I RESPECT myself enough to know that I don't have to show 90% of my skin/ cleavage/ butt cheeks to get the attention I deserve.
Like I said, this is not me trying to offend anyone or call them out.....it really doesn't matter to me what you wear (I'm more concerned with doodle's outfits).... and lord knows I've had my questionable fashion choices (we all have). But think twice before you go around saying that the only people that complain about you looking like a SKANKBAG are the ones who are jealous of your body....maybe once you enter ADULTHOOD you will have a different perspective. Or maybe you won't , geez louise there are still several "Real Housewives"that have yet to be enlightened on this issue!!!!!
What are YOUR thoughts on CLOTHING and ADULTHOOD....have you learned anything about how you perceive yourself? I hope so......because you are AWESOME :)
