Too old for sexy???????
A few days ago I was in Kohl's. I was walking past the registers on my way out (I hadn't bought anything. Shocking...I know!) No one was around, since it was a quiet day, and I overheard the two cashiers talking. One made mention of her shirt and that it was her "sexy shirt". The other said "I'm too old for sexy."
My jaw hit the floor. And I felt so sad for this woman.
I don't think anyone should just give up on being sexy. No, it's not a huge priority if you don't want it to be, but I don't think "too old" is a valid excuse. If that's the case, then it would be okay for women to think they are "too fat" for sexy or "too skinny" or "too fill-in-the-blank." I think women should feel sexy at any age, any size, any state of mind. I think it's very important actually.
Sexy has a different meaning to everyone. Some go for the skimpy lingerie, others (like my husband) think oversize sweats are sexy. In clothes or out of them, fancy hair and makeup or au natural, big boobs or tiny ones, gray hair or blonde, 22 or 62...sexy comes in many forms, and evolves over time. And nothing should make a woman feel like whatever they are is too anything for sexy.
And I'm sure that cashier's spouse or significant other does not think she is too old for sexy :)
