sort of wise woman named, Edith Head (not as wise as me of course…) once said, “Your dresses should be tight enough to show you’re a woman but loose enough to show you’re a lady.” So I really got to thinking about this quote after purchasing my Christmas dress for our company Christmas party. I’ve always been told, “Honey, if ya got it…flaunt it!” Not that my dress is inappropriate but just what the heck is ‘too tight’ and don’t get me wrong, Edith, was a brilliant costume designer for hot leading ladies such Ginger Rogers, Bette Davis, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Natalie Wood; but let’s be honest she was born in 1897 (women couldn’t even vote then let alone wear something that showed a little thigh!) and these leading ladies were in their prime in the 40’s and 50’s. My point is what was considered to be un-ladylike then might not be considered un-ladylike in 2011. Right!?! So while I’m worried about some old fogey quote and old fogeys at my Christmas party…my real concern should be, how I can make my boobs and arse look big all the while making my waist look ultra-small in this body hugging dress! I refuse to walk into the party self-conscious about what all the older generation will think of my dress!! And if I see one appalled look or hear any whispers I shall give them a new quote from the two- thousands!! “Your dresses should be tight enough to show you’re a woman but loose enough to show you’re a lady UNLESS you’re not a lady or are in your prime in the two-thousands in which case it doesn’t matter!” Live, laugh, love and wear small dresses!!
