Now today's exciting entry!!!
I learned long ago you cannot ‘fight city hall’, to use an overused term. Whatever the ‘authorities’ say is Gospel. It has always bothered me for someone to decide what is best for me (or society) to wear. It amazes me how the ‘Style Gestapo’ rules the world, especially in Women’s clothes. What amazes me more, is the sweet women in this world that buy into it. And keep the high end garment industries in business. So that I hear there are women with gowns/dresses costing thousands of dollars bought for one occasion. I can’t imagine that making sense to ANYONE, but then that is my opinion. I only wish a person could wear just what they want to wear, not what someone else dictates, without wondering: will someone else wear an outfit like this at the party or at church.
Back when my occupation ‘required’ wearing suits, I was told by a very dear friend that you could tell the quality of a suit by one simple guide, the number of buttons on the sleeve of the suit coat. Three buttons, off the rack, less expensive. The more expensive, off the rack, has/had four buttons. Since that time I have found myself looking at buttons, then chiding myself, ‘WHY IN HECK DO I CARE?’.
Rainy and warm here in central Florida today. Hope you are all well.
Will Rogers died in a plane crash, with his friend Wylie Post, in 1935; he was widely known and a beloved figure of his time -- as a political sage and as "just a good ol' country boy." These are some of his"philosophies."
