I am back from In Bug's Drawers..
Which by the way, if you have not seen you gotta.
She takes the most colorful pictures in beautiful settings and I have not even gotten to the clothes.... I don't want to spoil it for you, so go see her.
So I was just in her blog and I thought a lot after reading her
"This is Beauty?" post.
The first thing that struck me was the thin and pale young girl.
Then the fact that she did not seem happy, seemed kinda thirsty and then
what her t shirt read:
Hoe much less can she eat?
Then of course I read the post.
I have mixed feelings.
I find it unacceptable and maybe it's just because it's like a stalker...
It is just everywhere:
The message of being thinner than whatever size you are
right now - that message is right there breathing down your back.
Maybe because it's so in your face it bothers me,
at the end it's JUST A T SHIRT.
So even though in most parts of the world this is the message being put out, after giving it some thought I recalled 2 magazine ads from
a couple of years ago from when I had to travel for work to the Caribbean.
They are from a Christmas Catalogue in a store in Barbados and I thought it would be nice to share them for a change...
