HOT TOPIC TUESDAY: What Year Would You Live In And Why?

Roaring 20s image 5I would love to go back to the early 1900’s, specifically 1920… So I can wear those dramatic dresses with a bustier… I could wear my hair pin-curled with or without a headdress, when the only make-up required was red lipstick, when it was okay not have your cleavage the focal point of your outfit…When I’d have to travel with a chaperone for my own protection (so that none of the men would defile me)… A time when I could be treated like a Lady just because I was… A time when I wouldn’t have to explain why a man should open my door, help me in and out of the car/carriage or on or off a horse. A time I could just expect a man to be a man because he knew his place and I knew mine. A time when I could be taken care of and spoiled because that’s just what men did then, they knew their wife was a representation of them and she needed to be as well-kept as he was. A time of respect for being a woman, a time when women’s liberation was slowly churning, yet no woman wanted to be a man, they only wanted a choice to work outside of the home… A time when a man proposed before even asking for a piece of my cookie, a time when we let ourselves be exactly who we were… A time when I didn’t have to have a closet as large as the west wing nor needed one… A time when I could wear a fabulous dress more than once to an event… A time when simplicity was alright… A day when naked beauty was king, when balls were dances to meet a new Beau and music was live… When we weren’t rushing around in traffic, but were allowed to smell the roses, pick them, put them in a vase and admire them…

When your word was your bond, plain and simple!  If you could pick a year to live in, what era would represent best your values as a man/woman?

Happily divorced mother of one. I date when I find a worthy partner. I love to talk about relationships, work through problems with people and remind them of their options. I'm very open and willing to share all of my experiences to help others.
