Hot Mama official site: women

agree!

and the founder of this store is building a business on the crazy concept that women don't want to wear "mom jeans".

as some of the others said...time and place for everything.

Flats make me feel frumpy, but I never said that other people look frumpy in them. There are plenty of stylish flats out there. Ugg and Ugg-style boots and very popular, comfortable, fashionable, and I don't wear them because they're flat. Not a judgment just a preference. I don't think it's more womanly to wear heels. I just like them better, and believe me, my friends tease me incessantly about wearing heels to places like the grocery store.


But Christmas sweaters, yeah, I'm not going to lie, I mock them. I know it's wrong, but I do.

Just showing both sides. You see women dressing "not their age" we see "why do they look frumpy?" Different strokes for different folks. One group is not superior to the other, just different.

Except the felt reindeer bedazzled sweaters.

No....I don't think I addressed anyone dressing "not their age". I was simply making an observation. People were calling out "haters" on one end and saying people shouldn't make judgements on appearance, then going on to mock the other extreme. Why are some "haters" and some not? Why is one kind of judgement less offensive than the other? I just found it interesting.

You know, of course, that the women wearing the Christmas sweaters are mocking you for wearing heels to the grocery store.

It all evens out, lucygirl.

I must have missed the "haters" posts because it seemed to me that most people were talking about their own preferences in pretty reasonable ways.

Hahaha! That's exactly what I would expect! And they're free to! And if someone who likes Christmas sweaters wants to say to me, "kiss my __, Lucy, I like my snowman sweater," I say more power to her!

That would be my MIL.

(Who is fabulous. And has every right to wear Holiday (and Halloween, and Valentine's and Easter....) sweaters).
