Some of us are late bloomers and are the equivalent of teenage girls discovering the world of feminine fashion and beauty.
With that in mind, I often pass along tidbits that I hope will help us get through those awkward teenage years and become beautiful young woman ASAP. So here is a tidbit from this week's Daily Makeover: 7 Makeup Mistakes You're Making.
Opera En Femme
Aunty Marlena wrote, "I think your readers would be blown away at the amazing femulations done in an opera by two counter-tenors some years ago. They were performing in an 18th Century Italian opera called Artaserse which had been performed originally with castrati in the female roles (because the pope at the time decreed no women could perform in any opera in Rome). When the opera was revived in 2012, it was done with the counter-tenors playing the parts of the king's daughter and her friend, the top general's daughter."
Deal Breaking Heels
Commenting on the short suit I wore last week, Pat wrote, "I simply love your outfit and thinks your legs are gorgeous! I’m also a tall girl and reluctant to wear heels because of it, but you’ve now given me courage!"
I wrote back, "Thank you for the kind words. My mother often remarked that with my shapely legs, I should have been a girl! (Guess what, Mom?)
"Anyway, my attitude regarding heels is that being 6 feet 2 inches tall, wearing flats or heels is not going to be the deal breaker as to whether I pass or not."
As a result, I wear the highest heels that I can stand!
