Lady Diana Spencer, Sloane Ranger

Monday, July 1st, 2013

We love the late Lady Di, and were talking about Naomi Watts playing her over the weekend. Our preference is for her earlier years (1981-1984), before she found her own liberation from her marriage. During those conservative beginning years, the princess was meek, shy (“Shy Di”), and appeared alongside Charles most of the time. We love her conservative style in the days when wearing a low cut dress or dating a Pakistani / Egyptian fellow was unimaginable.

Sloanes are the British equivalent of the American preppy, and yes, there was also a book that was published to identify the English Sloanes.

When Princess Diana started out in the earlier years of marriage, she was instructed to dress a certain way by royal advisers. Needless to say, her high-neck, prim-and-proper, modest fashion appealed greatly to our Stepford girls. Our husbands like us to dress this way too. It may look a tad dated, but at least we come off conservative and reserved.

Osmosis and the flood from the less concentrated into the more concentrated (by Carolyn Snowdon)

Friday, May 24th, 2013

Osmosis is a chemical terminology that means the tendency for a less concentrated solvent to move in and occupy the area with a more concentrated solvent.

I have noticed that the tendency of passing time is for areas of lesser substance to permeate those of greater substance, thereby diluting it, making it weak. This applies for culture, cultural behavior, cultural patterns, and the general way we carry and present ourselves. In fact, I would go so far as to say that the quality of products in the last 50 years have gone steadily downwards.

When it comes to the way we present themselves as women, osmosis is readily apparent. The weaker culture continues to permeate how we use to be.

Women today are loud, foul-mouthed, obnoxious, belligerent, violent, and unkempt. English has almost become a second language in the States. Is it any wonder that we have lost the vocabulary of femininity?

We need to return to the golden age of modesty, chastity, and willing deference and docility to our husbands and men.

That is the only way to push out the lesser, coarse elements that are constantly threatening to eradicate the way proper wives and women once were.
