Because women have no sense of fashion



For people who spend so much time in front of the mirror, examining for flaws, seeing them when they aren’t there, and pulling out the smallest hairs on their face to exact a perfect look very few women are capable of actually looking good.

Any woman reading this will instantly assume they are in the category of looking good.

However, women will constantly over pluck their eyebrows, colour their hair the wrong colour, get strange looking fake tans, turn their nails into bird of prey talons and wear sizes too small for them.

Formal attire is the best example of this phenomenon. The woman in her swimming costume on the beach, or in her jeans and tee at a picnic looks best. It’s the woman at the wedding, the ball, the charity do and heaven forbid, in the audience of a televised awards ceremony who look the worst.

When a woman dresses to go out, she poses. She stands in front of the mirror for hours practising how to stand, how to move her face, how to laugh and put all her make up efforts to good use. Then of course, when she goes out, she can’t strike those poses all the time, she has to pull her undies out of her bum and she has to exhale.

This is when all the small hidden disasters start to show. Disasters that would prove unnecessary if she simply wore a dress the correct size, got her underwear fitted properly and stopped trying to dress like a stripper. If you can’t wear stilettos and walk in them, don’t wear them. You will have to walk at some point during the evening.

In romance novels the women don’t have to be perfect because their man loves them anyway and she has respect from all her friends. In other words she has power. However, like Pretty Woman, she gets help from a fairy princess, a makeover artist or a generous shop keeper, who is happy to ‘give her a few pointers.’

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an
    established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks

    I almost never comment, however after reading a ton of remarks on Because women have no sense of fashion | Why intelligent women read romance novels..
    I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.

    Is it simply me or do a few of the remarks look like they are written by brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I would like to follow you.
    Would you list of the complete urls of your social community pages like your Facebook page, twitter
    feed, or linkedin profile?

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any ideas? Kudos!
