WEARING WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY? HOW DARE YOU?
Who ever came up with the ridiculous rule to stop wearing white after Labor Day? Carried to it’s stupid extremes… woe be it to the bride who marries after that venerable week-end.
It’s about time we started questioning and defying commonly accepted, but super-stupid rules, and how they imprison and limit us to values that are no longer relevant. Check it out. How many time-worn stereotypes are you following? For me, a stunning, sexy Senior, I’ve had to counter the rules surrounding how a “mature” woman should, look, dress and behave.
Going further in that vein, it isn’t only old rules that are confining and downright dumb… freshly minted ones are too! One of the beauties of being in America is that we are free to chose how we believe and express ourselves. This is becoming even more relevant as gay marriage becomes the law of the land, and young men are actively pursuing older women. (Had to get that one in!)
It behooves each and every one of us to be resolute in defining and defending our choices. Naturally without hurting or maligning those of others. Though initially I was incensed at being pressured to follow the rules, I now revel in being liberated from them.
And, boy oh boy, do I have gorgeous white clothing to wear from today onward. And when I see you wearing it too, we’ll both smile. So, in a way, rules are great. We get to break them!
Courage is contagious!
