MAKES A WOMAN?
When you look through the ages at fashion, today's styles can be very
depressing. Where did the voluptuous woman go? Where is she in the fashion
Designers have taken our femininity away from us by making women look
like boys in girl's clothes. Do you remember when we were growing up,
how we could not wait for a bust or some shapely curves that marked
us as woman? Now all I see representing us are flat chested boy's with
no waist, no hips, and scrawny legs. Ali McBeal as a fashion icon? Are
you kidding me?
The big bosses at the movie and TV studios are dictating that women
in the media's eye should all be skinny with boyish bodies. The magazines
with all their airbrushing make women . look so unreal. Sophie Dahl
- the bigger glam model is on a diet to become more acceptable.
Why do women out there buy into this crap? Why are you chiseling your
bodies to look like men? Why is a robust woman considered fat? Who decides
this? Them or you? Only you decide your sex appeal. Only you can decide
if you feel sexy, if you feel womanly, not them.
If you are a little on the heavy side do what you have to do for your
health, a bigger woman can and does look fabulous in the right clothes
and with the right attitude.
Sex appeal is all an attitude, our attitude. When we walk into a room,
the impression we want to make is that we are woman, can you make us
roar. We can feel very sensual without a man. (Without being gay) We
are comfortable in our own skin and sensuality does not need to be based
around sex. Being a woman is about how we feel about ourselves. Do we
turn ourselves on? Do we feel the empowerment of being a woman? Do we
relish it? Or do we let others decide if we are sexy or womanly enough
Sophie Dahl has now gone on a diet
Do men actually know what is sexy? When you have undernourished fashion
icons out there and actresses starving themselves to look like scarecrows
- do men know what a real woman looks like? They rarely see one.
They have been told that anyone over a size 8 is large and unsightly.
Can you blame the male species from being confused? I know that not
all women are the same, and that there are many beautiful women that
are naturally slim and tiny, and they have sex appeal. But a large woman
can look drop dead gorgeous too.
Being a woman has nothing to with size, nothing. It is to do with our
own self-value, and not the values that are put upon us by society,
dictated to by the fashion industry and the entertainment business.
Gentleman, please do not look at us as a "show and tell" item.
If you can bed us then you can be proud to be seen with us out in public.
If you obsess over a women's weight, then you need to question why that
is. That is your hang up - not theirs. If you think that all women should
look like say Julia Roberts, then you are dull and boring.
Life is a variety of things and of people, we are all made very differently,
with our own uniqueness. We all have something to give that certain
someone, something special, our compassion and our sensual love.
We all like a pretty package, that is why I am in the business of fashion
consultant. We are want to look our best, but with the designers pandering
to the anorexics anyone over size 8 has no chance to dress sexy and
alluring - because there is no choice of clothing to wear. All the shops
go up to size (tiny) 14 and after that good luck in finding any thing
snazzy or sexy, there is only frumpy, which makes us grumpy (sorry could
I invite all designers in West Coast to design clothing for the millions
of beautiful sensual woman here who would love to have something to
wear. I also them to get real, and start designing real clothes for
all shapes and sizes of women, You must also insist that the magazines
show them. Get real actress to wear them and give some hope to women
and young girls all over the world, that shapely or heavy is not bad,
but womanly. It has been that way for eternity.
Women rebel. Write to the media and insist that they stop putting the
abnormal pressure on a woman to loose weight. Weight loss is a serious
thing, and must be done wisely.
Fitness is good, but dieting to death just to fit into an image your
body type is not designed for is deadly and soul destroying. Eat wise,
exercise wise, and get rid of the heavy weight in your heart, and the
negative image you have yourself. Because you don't deserve it. Do not
judge yourself, nor allow anyone else judge you. Aspire to grow in your
spirit, in your attitude to life and in your love of yourself just the
way you are.
Men I know that you are under some pressure to look great too, with
six pack abbs and bronzed bodies constantly thrown in your faces. Understand
this, we love a guy who looks after himself, clean, healthy, not too
heavy. But most of all we want an understanding man, not judgemental
and loving. It is all about attitude towards life, women, children,
and the fellow man.
I know that there will be some people out there who will disagree with
me. But if you agree with me please do write back, and tell me your
I am in the business of fashion I would love to know other people's
side of it.

So off we went,
all aware of this last trip and that we do not spend a lot of time together
as a family anymore.
Why is it the
regular man does not quite measure up to our sexy screen stars?
