I was having a discussion with a friend and in our conversation came the question of the meaning of prettiness.
What does make us feel pretty? Clothes? Accessories? Shoes? Or the way we see ourselves in them or therefore how others see us?
In these types of subjects, I am a bit of a pickle because I see myself
as “a third gender”, the “writer gender” and so I am obviously out of
my comfort zone. Some even made a movie out of us I believe it was named "close encounter with the third kind" ;-)
However I do try to study both gender as neutrally as I
can. But in the case of women for example, do women wear skirts or
dresses because they feel pretty in them or because they feel men's
attention on them?
course, the same question goes for me. Would men still wear low cut
trousers if they knew women were not eyeing them? Would they shave so closely and
chose to wear expensive after-shave?
They say "love is in the eye of the beholder" but when it comes to feel pretty, what does make you feel pretty and why?
they were no men to appreciate skirts, would you ladies still wear
skirts? And if there were no gals, would you guys bother with tight
jeans or nicely cut suits or fashionable shoes or whatever rocks your
Now be honest in replying to this question. And try to
really think if you ever tried to look nice for yourself or for
others? Would you dress the same if it wasn't for fashion, peer pressure and society ethics? ( I am excluding dress codes in workplaces which are "kind of" the rules although this could be the theme of my next post)
