Gowns and Gowns

A couple random thoughts:

The hospital gowns at the doctor’s office are always too small.  I know I could buy my own, but that seems like overkill.  Today, though, I was just going in for a pap smear, so I wore a dress that could easily hiked up and just removed my panties and shoes.  Yay for simplicity.

Realized why many fashion shots seem so strange to me: they look like kids playing dress up.  I mean, yes, young teens can and do have fresh, lovely faces, but if the designs are aimed squarely at women in the 30s and 40s or older (which they often are, since that’s who can afford them) then the models are far too young for the clothes, and … yeah.  Toss in teens trying to look “serious” and it’s a wee bit too close to hysterical for me.

  1. I have to agree with you. It’s nonsense. Some of the teenagers who model look like street trash. I am glad my daughters are grown and I don’t have to worry about them wearing some of that trashy looking stuff anymore.

    • Considering the girls are dressed meticulously by their employers — including hair, makeup, plus being instructed on expression and posture — I’m sure that if the girls look “trashy” it’s not the girls’ decision, and the girls aren’t the ones who should be derided for it.

  2. Models often look like they are playing dress up. More than that, I work for the government and sometimes I look at the way the models are posed and the rather outlandish clothes they are asked to wear in magazine shoots, and I think, if someone dressed like that, and moving in that unusual way, came into my office, I would automatically think that they were on something and call the Welfare team in for a consult.

  3. I have considered buying my own but cannot afford it. Then I thought perhaps I could make my own! But then I realize I don’t even know how to read a pattern. Ugh! I like your idea better. Did the Doctor say anything about your wearing a dress?

  4. calling young women “trashy” and “street trash” seems mighty misogynistic. those women are covered from neck to ankle and work in an industry that demands discipline and creativity. it doesn’t have to be your cup of tea, but there’s no need to be toxic toward others.
