Today is my birthday!  One of my sisters sent me a gift just to make me smile.  It worked.  She sent me this snow cap, so I thought I would take some fun pictures wearing it for her.



 
Hey, if you can't be goofy when you turn 61, when can you be?  So where ever you are today, do something goofy for me, ok?

A Bone To Pick With The Fashion Industry

 
 
I rarely post anything that has a negative connotation.  Today is an exception.  I have a bone to pick with the fashion industry.  Actually, I have two bones to pick with the fashion industry.
 
But to keep things from being too negative, I am going to intersperse my comments with some pretty outfits I have been pinning onto my fashion board
 
navy gingham shirt + hot pink crew neck sweater + navy quilted vest + jeans + bean boots
 
 
My first bone to pick:
 
I can buy my husband a button front wrinkle free shirt from JC Penney at $17.99 all the way up to a shirt from Ralph Lauren for $89.00 and both of them don't shrink, don't wrinkle and last for 10 years. 
 
However, I can buy a shirt for myself from JC Penney or Ralph Lauren and they shrink the first time they are washed and they always wrinkle!
 
Classic navy blazer with gold buttons, plaid shirt, jeans.
 
 
My second bone to pick:
 
Why do men's pants and jeans come in waist and length sizes and women's pants and jeans come in a size that has nothing to do with her waist and a generic length.  For example:  I am 5'2 inches tall.  I buy petite sizes.  Petite size lengths are generally made for women that are 5'1 to 5'4 inches tall.  That means that most of my "petite" jeans and pants still need to be hemmed up 2 inches.
 
Why can't the fashion industry make women's clothes non shrinkable, wrinkle free and size by length and waist?
 
Care to chime in?
