Stodgy is Sexy

Yes, you heard that right!  As they say on their site, “It’s a movement.”  And not a moment too soon for this lady, I must confess………

I considered posting this photo several days ago, but didn’t really know what to say about it.  Is it a “before and after motherhood” photo?

Well, yes and no.

Is it a “I don’t go to parties, I go to the grocery store more than once a day” photo?

Well, yes and no.

It’s so much more, friends…..and now I know what it really is.  It’s the Stodgy is Sexy photo submission of the day!  Visit their site and join the revolution.  And bring your sensible shoes, will ya?

“The movement has begun. Arrogance is out. Conspicuous consumption is out. Risk is definitely out. In the ways we spend, dress, invest, and consume, we are returning to old values like thrift, simplicity, and basic common sense. Stodgy? Absolutely.

And stodgy is a good thing. Stodgy is sexy.”

One thought on “Stodgy is Sexy

  1. I’ve never been able to understand the mindset of suffering for beauty or fashion. The most I can tolerate is wearing spanx and high heals once in a little while.

    If you can’t be comfortable (most of the time)… why bother?
