In a Mail Online interview she said:
"'It seems that the fatter and uglier people are, the fewer clothes they wear. The shorts and flip-flops and tight jeans on butts that go from here to Poughkeepsie. I always say they should put people in jail for wearing clothes like that. Especially stretch jeans over [US] size 10 - they should be outlawed. Ten years ago people were starting to look like slobs in New York, now it's an epidemic."I don't think that being 90 years old means that you can make such rude remarks about others. She is entitled to her opinion. I just don't see how such cantankerous words help anyone. Anyway, who made her the arbitrator of who is ugly is who isn't?
Not that she would ever intervene on a bad case of misjudged style. 'Oh, now that would be horrible. It's a free country - if you want to look like a freak, that's your problem.'"
There are many bloggers who are positively trying to show women that there is beauty in different ages, sizes, and ethnicity's. Verbally tearing others down does not make you better than anyone else. What do you think about what she said?
Today I went to purchase a new coat and took my Mother with me. I was having a really good time until I asked my Mother if she wanted to try on a coat. One of the sales associates said "Oh she will wear yours, that is the way sisters are." This was a compliment to my Mother, but it got to me. Do I look THAT old? It really brought me down. I had been so happy with my purchase and then that remark really took away my joy. After I told her it was my Mother, she said "Well I guess you want to hit me in the head now." I just smiled and left. What would you have done?

Recently, I saw some Cole Haan shoes that had bright colored laces. I fell in love with the look and purchased several bright colors of laces. These are really royal blue and not as turquoise as they look here.
This necklace is one that I purchased at a local boutique, Carla's Love It. The necklace was made by the owner of the boutique, who is quite a talented jewelry maker.
