245. ^this^ perfect!

Let me add - in the course of these discussions I read - I know I read - something along the lines that women should appreciate it for the fashion aspect.

*sigh*

Someone *cough seabeyond cough* has very lovingly pointed out that I'm such a "girl"! And it's true!

And as a "girl" there are some discussions I'm only having with women at fashion blogs. At no time eveeeer have I come to DU to have that discussion. Oh wait - I did a spinoff here in the Women's group about stilettos because of heated pushback from the Anti Tieks crowd. I swear Choo pays people to post at blogs about his craptastic product but I digress.

I respect that we have both crunchy granola men AND women at DU that are anti spending money on artificial things like clothing handbags perfume etc etc. Me? I'm not that way.

I'm also in a higher tier financial demographic than I get the impression many are at DU.

So I respect THAT too! I hold back! Psst - I own 8 pairs of Tieks.

But I wish crunchy granola men that are all anti establishment would just own up to the fact that the posting was a T and A sucker punch - nothing more and nothing less.

I also remember a few men jumping down the throats of women during the handbag wars. I think I can find a thread referencing that loop of threads in the AA group. So when we want to talk about $500 handbags that's bad - but when they want to give swimsuit fashion advice - its okay. That's not frivolous and fun? Hmmm. . .

So here's the thing - I will go to the luxe blog for fashion advice gentleman. I don't need your assistance. And come this August - I'm posting the cover of THE Book. Know what that is? An orgy of high priced luxury goods that women in the top 5% buy called the September Issue of Vogue. And I'm posting it in GD.

If frivolous is AOK in GD - then its all or nothing. BTW - my favorite "brand blog" has a disco going on about the swimsuits in this years issue and evidently - they suck. Everyone is going with the tried and true - Soraya. The little pups living on dreams and spaghettios are going on about what's in Venus - not SI. So even the young women that are reflected in SI aren't buying those suits.


Whew - you opened the door pnw. Hallelujah! I had to get that off my chest. I seriously do not come to DU to discuss bathing suits. The very idea is cray cray! And if one IS a woman coming to DU looking for fashion advice from men who every once in awhile blurt out " I haven't bought a pair of jeans in ten years !!!!" please don't pay attention to them. Please just don't do it. Friends don't let friends make bad fashion choices.
