How do you feel about the term Age appropriate?
So let me back up for a minute. I got up at 7 am this morning feeling awesome. I thought I would make my keto meal and watch a little million dollar matchmaker to start my day. I find Patty's tough love to be centering.
After all, it's labor day right, even a business owner can have chill times!!
Then it came, this commercial while watching Hulu. I felt infuriated and just had to write about it. They showed a mother (60 to 65 or so) and daughter (40 to 45 or so). Yet they were not advertising fashion, they used it as an example. Then this word, I can't stand came into play and the daughter said it, Age appropriate.I got immediately upset.
The dress the 40 something was wearing when she said the term, was a simple black dress without accessories. She had very little makeup on.She also had her hair up office style.She looked professional & uptight. She was going on a date. That's right, a date!!
Hello Plane Jane. Think her date will view her as Fun? Exciting? Or not?
My point is, they were playing her down! I saw no flare or style about the look. I find this totally ridiculous.
Mom by day does not mean boring by night!
And who says she's a mom? What about the non-moms!!
Why the classification that age defines how you must dress and look?
Or lead your life? Why the need to label us? I don't like labels, do you?
You can't be totally rad past 30??? So who made that rule?
Hey, ladies, you have enough of this nonsense yet?
How about we break the mold, and not allow the world to define us this way anymore? How about we are super cool at any age? How about we dress how we feel, and not how we are told? How about we define ourselves by our inner passions and not our outer appeal?
So you wanna dress like Marilyn Manson??
You want to dress like a 1985 rocker/biker chick??
Do you want to dress like Jennifer Lopez?
WHY THE HECK NOT!!
Or you just want to make up your own style each and every day and look any damn way you choose??
Hey, closed minded woman labeling comity, take your rules back, we are done with them! We will dress our way! We will define ourselves, not you! We will choose who we are each and every day!
AND WE WILL NOT DEFINE OURSELVES BY AGE OR LOOKS!!
So back off us women and watch us be the total rockstars females we were born to be!!
I WOMAN AND I AM PROUD!
Go be your own woman and never let anyone take your originality away. All you ever gotta be is YOU!
☮ ✌ AND YOU ARE ROCKSTAR!
Your style, Your life!
