Interesting article on plastic surgery & how it relates to fashion today…Perk & Work – http://www.style.com/vogue/feature/2009/03/perk-work
(Linking isn’t working on my blog for some reason lately…uggh)

Fashion designers now design for augmented bodies. Great! More pressure to go under the knife….sigh. Will there ever come a time again that celebrates a real woman’s beauty without her feeling that she has to have the smallest waistline, the largest breasts and the tightest, little bodies in order to be considered pretty? I find it disturbing that the trend is to have SURGERY in order to feel good about oneself. Let’s celebrate ourselves as we are…real, natural, and beautiful regardless of what the media dictates to us!
