I subscribe to all these magazines that show these ads for thew newest fashion for the season and quite frankly I rarely ever find anything in those ads that catch my attention. Besides those women not looking like me, they are these beautiful crane like creatures with light features and long legs. I am not jealous, I think they are fantastic to look at but when it comes time to decide what I’m going to buy when I shop, I just don’t relate to those women.
I’m hispanic with tan features and a short waist. Not to mention my vuluptuous top half and my wide hipped bottom half. Thank God for magazines like Latina and for the likes of actresses like Eva Mendez and Eva Longoria who give me a pallet that I can work with.
While I’m on this rant I should probably also mention how when I go to the mall most stores I encounter are catering to women in the age range of 18-25. My friend and I had this discussion over dinner the other day. Where do women that are older than 28 and less than 40 go to shop? Yes there is Anne Taylor, Express, and the like but is it really that limited? I like to dress in fun clothes for my age group and I just don’t think its out there.
Has this happened to anyone else?
