This isn't really a good representation of what it used to look like, but you get the idea. I used to enjoy this because, at least when I was a kid, I seldom saw people actually dressed or made up like the "Don'ts" and found it highly amusing.
I haven't looked at a Glamour magazine in many years, so I have no idea if I would have the same kind of appreciation for it. But I'll still see people whose attire or makeup is astonishing/frightening/whatever and think to myself, "Surely that's a Don't." But that's as far as I take it.
Today though, we have a LOT more people deciding what is or is not appropriate - in just about every category. I am particularly fond of the ones where they inform us of what women should/should not wear/do after the age of ____ (fill in the blank). I guess I find it even more shocking/amusing that to some, it's gospel truth!
But a friend recently showed me this item, and I was highly amused because: a) after 30??? are you kidding me???, and b) one of the items is hoop earrings!!! When I read this, I laughed out loud, because I don't understand how hoop earrings are a problem for anyone of any age.
I'm afraid I don't get it. Granted, I see some hoop earrings that are so large/heavy/embellished that I would never wear them myself, or I would find them uncomfortable if I did, but I've never seen anyone of any age wearing hoop earrings and thought, "Whoa, that shouldn't be happening."
Shorts where your butt is showing? I don't personally want to see anyone wearing those. Sheer tops/dresses/pants? Same thing. I mean, there are so many other things to choose from, and someone is taking a stand on HOOP EARRINGS???
If you're looking for me, I'll be taking off my hoop earrings, putting on my orthopedic shoes with rolled down knee-high nylons, and sitting in my rocking chair until it's time for my medication.
