Style Basis: Shorts (Hottest Women Shorts of the Season)
The Fashion Time Magazine ^ | Jun 27th, 2008 | The Fashion Time Magazine

Posted on 06/30/2008 8:04:50 AM PDT by Mister Ghost

Women have worn shorts since the 1950s, and for half a century, this classic item has been a perfect staple of the summer wardrobe. They are easy wearing, look stylish, and save you from the heat.

From Bermuda shorts and knee length denim shorts to structured boxy shorts, there are a number of smart styles choices in different lengths, colors, fabrics, prints, and silhouettes. For those who prefer something feminine, there are dressier styles in fancy fabrics like silk and linen, with details such as cuff hems and tuxedo waistbands.

At least the woman in the 1950’s picture didn’t look like a walking skeleton.

I thought the fashion industry was going to use more realistic (heavier) woman after a couple of the skinny ones keeled over & died last year.

Yep, somehow the ideal feminine profile went from “hourglass” to “stick.”

No kidding! I'll take the gal in the older first pic! She's got some meat on her bones. Those other ones look sick. If I dated one of those sticks our first date would be this!

Take those outfits off their clothes hangers and put them on some women... no, wait, those are women and not hangers. Sorry for the understandable confusion.

Isn’t that because many are are? Once they reach the late teens or 20s they have trouble finding employment on the runway...

Yes, three things that hubby likes: Porterhouse Steak-Medium Rare, Guiness Stout, Dark Chocolate and those Haagen Das Ice Cream Bars: Dark Chocolate on Chocolate - those bars have twenty grams of fat in each bar!!!!!! It seems everything that tastes so good, is bad for you, except Dark Chocolate./Just Asking - seoul62........

>>> “In Color for Men was Pink!!!!!!!

>> Always has been...

I am with you on the steak ... but I will admit it wasn’t the first “pink” that came to mind.

I won’t elaborate any further.

Those girls are so skinny that they aren't menstruating, hence are incapable of producing progeny.

You can decide for yourself who would be interested in promulgating a standard of beauty which proffers, as objects of desire, a set of creatures which cannot give children to their men.

Perhaps that explains why the 20-year-old Russian model just jumped out of a window in Lower Manhattan. Of course, some folks think she was pushed ...

It sounded more like matters of the heart.

She had recently written things such as, “Do not confuse love and desire. Love is the sun, desire – only flash. Desire dazzles, and the sun gives life.”

and...

“I’m so lost. Will I ever find myself?”

She just turned 87 last week. But she was certainly a looker back in the day (before my time).

I see one woman in shorts. I also see four androgens. Well, the one to the right of the woman may get a pass, but the three on the bottom don’t show any female characteristics whatsoever.

I have my own theory on thin women:

If I were in the market for a new BlueMondayAdmiral I would look for one on the thin side. My reasoning is that since she would end up putting on 5-10 pounds per year anyway, it's better to start thin so you don't overshoot the mark.

The question is; which model is the least likely to be a vector for infectious disease? I ask you.
