This is such a great page. I love the idea that we celebrate who we are rather than celebrate facades of what Madison Avenue advertises. I.E....I watched...FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE...... The Victoria Secrets show a couple of weeks ago. I was really sad to see that they continue to use professional straight up and down models instead of using REAL WOMEN to wear the wings.
First of all....showing those gals....and don't get me wrong...I am NOT A HATER because in my younger days I would have easily been one of those pretties up there on the catwalk sporting the wings. However at this juncture of my life I looked at the physiques of those women and really had a hard time with it all. They were straight up and down with not one ounce of anything on them. THAT....IS NOT REALITY.
Why doesn't the company have a contest or some way of getting every day women of all sizes, shapes, colors AND AGES....be the ones who wear the outfits....I would do it in a heartbeat to show what 61 looks like.I am not a millionairess by any means which then means that I don't have people doting over me all the time with make-up, gym routines, yoga gurus, palates classes or any of the other ongoing perks that these gals get for being VS Angels. Quite the contrary.
I think that in order to have younger women understand that we ALL GET OLDER....and with that our bodies change......we....the "elders" have to show them how to embrace it....NOW.
So ladies...go out and find your wings and FLY!!!!!!
