A Call for Class

Ladies please!

The other day, while twitter stalking (you know you do it), I found a real-life Fake Girl. You know the type — fake nails, fake tan, fake hair, fake, fake, fake.

My question is the perpetual one — do these girls think that they look good? Follow-up question for any men that might read Chic Darling — do you find this attractive in a woman?

In French, to have self-confidence is called confidence en soi — literally confidence in yourself. I think that the French is a bit more accurate of a description for what these women do not have — confidence in themselves.

The girl in the above picture is no doubt pretty but why does she feel that she needs to wear a shirt cut to her belly button and to spend countless hours spray tanning, eyebrow-painting-on and making herself up? What society does this girl live in?

This girl is classy. Natural make-up, natural hair, appropriate clothing.

Could I be biased because of my Catholic school upbringing where I couldn’t wear skirt above the knee, have wild make-up and hair and had buttons-to-the-neck shirts? Maybe. But I definitely think that society would be better off seeing less of this:

and more of this:

    Urgh I totally agree – it’s such a shame these pretty girls actually uglify themselves in their attempts to look “hot” xx

    I don’t personally find the fake-girl look very attractive, but I don’t necessarily agree the world would be a better place without them. Obviously there are plenty of guys out there who love that look, so what’s the harm in it? They aren’t hurting anyone.

      Except themselves, right?

        I mean, whatever. It’s their life. It’s no worse than drinking or smoking.

    I’m with Kyle. This post makes me sad. Yes, I wish girls knew they looked good without spray tans and barely-there clothes. But to say they aren’t classy is pure judgment. People feel confident for any number of reasons. Who are we to judge what makes other people happy?

    I agree with Cait, as is often said ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’. People have different views/opinions/visions of certain things, that is what makes the world a more interesting place. Just because we personally don’t like something it doesn’t mean that it is wrong or shouldn’t happen. If somebody wants to wear a short skirt, good for them! If somebody likes to cover neck to feet, good for them! Imagine how upset you’d feel if somebody wrote a post like this on the way you dressed or applied make-up, you’d probably be quite upset. I know I would. SinceIi’ve had a daughter I’ve learnt that I can’t judge people, it’s a hideous personality trait to show her. Sorry about the ramble!
