Are We Becoming A Society of Fashion Don’ts??

Is it just me or are there more fashion  "Don’ts" than "Do’s" lately in society? I was visiting Los Angeles this last weekend and we had a lovely lunch in Santa Monica down by the water. While driving through the town I wanted to yell out my car window,"Ladies have you not heard of age appropriate clothes? And, there are just certain areas of the body that should not be shown for public viewing.” I know you all know exactly what I am saying.

The other thing that I seemed to observe were a lot of woman in their late 50s and older with face lifts that, trust me, did not look remotely natural. Then there is the plumped lip! Oh my! If your upper lip can touch your nose, you have plumped too much!!

Is it true blondes have more fun? I think there is a whole lot of women out there that must think so. I have never seen so many un-natural fried looking blondes in my life. Don’t get me wrong I enhance with the best of them, but frequent cuts and conditioner is the answer. Not continuous bleaching the few fried strands that are left on ones head.

I love to people watch and try to not to be critical while people watching. People truly fascinate me. I did see some beautiful young fresh faced people that gave me hope. On the whole, however, I must say it was not a pretty site.

I will never claim to be a fashion or beauty expert, but I think I have some simple common sense on these matters. What do you all think about the overly plump lips, stretched skin and eyes? The fried blonde hair and the overly exposed body parts of older skin that has spent way too much time in the sun?? It is just so scary to me!! You will notice there were no images on this post. I just did not have the heart. Seeing it once was enough!!

I don't want to leave this post on a negative note. Come back and I will have a post of some of the products that I use to prevent the "Don't" look.
“Enjoy the Process” Of: People watching and discovering what NOT to do!!
