Fast and Loose is now how I like my pants. I don’t like shopping for pants anymore. If I can get in and out of the dressing room with pants that go on and off quickly. I’m thrilled. If they come in other colors, I will load up, for good reason.
I’m a lady of a certain age, and the pant’s styles have just become stupid. Everything is made out of sweat-inducing, hot flash furthering polyester. And everything is skinny. Skinny skinny skinny jeans.
I mean, does every single jean have to hug my leg from crotch to ankle? Because that is not a good look for me.
The only other place to shop is an old lady’s store like JC Penney, and that’s where you find all of your rayon (which is really wood pulp treated with harsh chemicals), acrylic (fossil fuels and plastic) and more polyester (made from petrochemicals!). It seems almost everything made for women now is made out of synthetic fabrics. What is going on?
I really truly cannot find a one hundred percent cotton knit anything. I have been shopping for a winter coat for the last four months and I’ve completely given up. Even at the high-end stores and on high-end websites, every single, solitary coat is polyester with polyester fill. Don’t these designers realize these coats will be in a landfill for the next two hundred years?
And wool? Wool is just too heavy for the California winter. And it’s itchy, Itchy. Itchy. Itchy. Polyester and wool. These are my choices?
This along with the pant’s issue is why I no longer enjoy shopping. I just don’t know what has happened to the fashion industry. They don’t seem to care about the planet or women’s bodies. Good luck ladies. I hope you can find something that breathes, cause we’re hotttt!!!! (Even in the cold).
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end. Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
