Okaaaay. So, new topic. Pregnant women and designer clothes. Yay or nay?
The NY Times ran a very nice article today about women looking hip and fabulous while pregnant. No more Winnie the Pooh overalls! Bring on the skinny jeans and the designer dresses!
The women modeling the clothes — you have to admit – look great. I think it’s a step in the right direction (and a reflection of women’s economic power) that women are now free to shop at The Pea in the Pod or The Gap or even Target (yeay, Target!) and find gorgeous clothes (with nary a ribbon or bow in sight) to make them attractive while they’re throwing up and feeling gross.
But on the other hand, so now women are supposed to meet some ideal of physical attraction, even while they’re pregnant? “Angelina-Jolie pregnant”?! I thought pregnancy was a license to eat a few extra bowls of ice cream and slink around in your bathrobe, if you felt like it.
What do you think? Hello? (Do any women even read this blog anymore? :) )
I guess we could always talk about the weather…. It’s raining. Again.
P.S. Happy Birthday, Travis!
