Slutification of Fashion: Or why do women dress slutty at work?

I have been thinking about this for a while and wonder if it is just me? When I saw fishnet stockings in the office today, I feel like I at least have some ground to stand on.

Let me admit that I am not a fashion person. I look forward to when we all just wear those Star Trek uniforms and I don’t have to shop or worry about what I’m going to wear (plus I don’t think you would have to iron them!!) But while I may not keep up what is trendy, I do see a trend. You can see it when you pick your kid up from school. There are Moms that dress like they want to be Milf’s. You have cougars and you have just some hilariously trashy caricatures. The moms are adults. What is sad is when you see the girls come out of the school dressed like their moms.

It seems to be just across the board. When did it become in fashion to wear fitted shirts even when you have a potbelly? When did it become a good look to wear shorts so short you can see your ass paired with cowboy boots? Really? Daisy Mae is in Vogue? See, I thought that you dressed that way when you went out – like out to a club. I thought “fuck me pumps” were for going to look to get… well, fucked. Doesn’t anything 4″ pretty much count as a FMP? It is to the point that when I go to the grocery store I wonder if there is a prostitution ring nearby. I’m not a prude here. There is hesitation in exploring this issue because it is not like I haven’t dressed a little slutty before. I just don’t see myself wearing my snakeskin dress to work.

Work is where I am the most baffled. The office I am in does not have a strict dress code, nor is it always strict business attire. But, FMP’s at work? Really? It is the new thing. There is a new employ. She is young and cute and fairly tall. The first few months she wore strictly business suits. Then one day I noticed her 4″ heels and made a comment that they were cute. She explained that she felt a little uncomfortable wearing her tall shoes until she saw another employee, also tall, wearing some. So, it wasn’t an issue of style so much as height? Hmm. She’s right. There are other women in the office wearing big shoes paired with tight pants or short skirts. They are cute and not over the top so much as it just doesn’t seem like work clothes. It seems that women have had to work so hard to be in business, they have had to fight to gain respect in male dominated workplaces. And mostly, we’ve made it, leaving aside pay imbalances for another conversation. So, why go back to the secretary in the short skirt and tight sweater stereotype of dress? It seems like a reversion to where a woman had to be hot, not qualified. The new woman is qualified. She is bright and good at what she does. Does she really need to wear the short skirt, bare legs and “tall” shoes that she has on today? Even more baffling to me is the middle aged VP that prompted me to write this. She is accomplished and intelligent. Today she has on a short skirt, high heel boots and fishnet hose.

    En sex partner er det samme som en knullevenn eller en venn
    med fordeler. Det er de tingene vi vanligvis tenner på og fantaserer om.
    Takket være internett har det blitt lettere å lettere og
    arrangere knulletreff.

    I agree. I work in a law firm. And there is this skank who has a professional title…and she wears those stretchy black pants with 6″ heels to work. Personally, I feel she looks like she can work on some dark alley at midnight – turning tricks. It truly gives accomplished women a negative edge to have women parade around like that at work. I guess she is an attention whore – crying for attention from her male co-workers. Pathetic in my view.

    Many companies would publicize that their Silver Chains are ‘bona fide. Many wholesale suppliers require a minimum order of 200 pieces, for example, but others only require less than 10 pieces per order. Contrary to popular belief, wholesale almonds and other bulk wholesale nuts will not keep forever.
