Can We Talk?

Sleeveless Dresses

Let me just say that I love Michelle Obama.  She is charming,  unassuming and strong – PLUS, she has perfect upper arms.

But, what is going on?  Women everywhere are sporting sleeveless dresses in the middle of winter. Not only that, but women whose upper arms need serious help are also wearing them. Dear God. Why are we so willing to follow a trend when it clearly does not do a thing for most of us?  Is it that we are weak without fashion flare of our own? Is this like high school when the most popular girl in school had an entourage of schoolmates wearing similar garb?  Is this like being in the “in” crowd?

Hero worship has always been a part of our social fabric.  We take a celebrity and, by emulating them, we too feel like – well – a semi-celebrity.  We walk in their shadows.

Grow up ladies.  Look in the mirror.  Those sleeveless tops are fine for summer in the searing heat, wearing flip-flops and sipping on a Margarita.  Or, if you are one of those very few who sport lovely toned upper arms like Michelle, then at least dress for the weather.
