Day 1: Week of Skirt, Skort and Dress
Today begins an exciting new venture to the Year of Denim… The Week of Skirts, Skorts and Dresses!
Yes. I vow to wear a skirt, skort or dress every day this week.
Why am I doing this? Because I have been under representing the legless and apparently legless versions of the jean. Plus I have been given a couple of denim potato sacks dresses that I haven’t worn yet here on YoD.
So get ready to see my legs, my rather hairy legs!
And while I am on the topic of legs what about the hoo-hah in regard to the actress Mo’Nique’s hairy legs? Been a hairy legged, non-shaving type of bitch myself I was all ‘You go hairy sister!’.
Sheez the gossip web sites think hair on the legs of a woman is the most repulsive thing they have ever seen. It still amazes me that a few strands of hair out of place anywhere on a woman (remember Julia Roberts and the stink about her unshaven armpits a few years ago) is so outrageous, horrifying and repulsive.
Even I, proud wearer of hairy legs and arm-pits, get a shock when I see another woman unshaven where normally she’s plucked. How frequently do you see women proudly sporting a bit of hair on their upper lip? Rarely and those women are usually old, homeless or messing with gender. No normal woman would be seen with THAT kind of hair.
I’m running out of steam with my hirsute ranting and I’m unsure what point I am trying to make, so here’s today’s denim do…
