Fashion? Really????

I like to write about different things and express my opinion or just make observations.  I don't know how blogs get noticed by other than friends to whom I sent my blog web site.  I blog about politics, current events, things that strike me funny or absurd (lots of that here.)

A few days ago I received an email from someone who found my blog, liked the content and design and invited me to be part of beta testing on her site which just opened, a place to discuss............... fashion!     Fashion!  Holy crap, I couldn't be less interested in fashion, of all things.

With everything going on in the world, I can't imagine my thoughts wrapping around which heels go with which dress!  I will say this, though.  People here in the Valley of the Sun seem to be obsessed with not only fashion but botox, teeth whitening, teeth straightening, body image, the latest fashion and makeup, who goes to which club, who is seen with whom, who has the latest bauble, what is the latest fashion trend, where to buy the stuff, etc.  There are so many ads for everything I've mentioned that I'm sure those ads are paying enough to keep newspapers running.

And, it's not just newspapers.  The local Phoenix Magazine has more ads for dentists (new smiles), cosmetic surgery, lap-band procedures, skin rejuvenation, facial contouring, spas, weight control, etc...... well you get my point. 

This is the place for the "beautiful people" to get more beautiful.  Apparently, no one is perfect enough.  There is always room for more improvement.  I guess if you're living in the Valley of the Sun where poolside entertainment is year round, one must look fab-u-lous, mustn't one????

Sheeeesh!  I throw on a tee shirt, crops and sandals and I'm happy!  I shudder when I have to throw on a dress.  Thank goodness it's not very often.

I'll stick to blogging about what interests me and fashion isn't on that list.
