Just So You Don't Get The Wrong Impression ....

As I wrote about earlier, I was the devil's cheerleader for Halloween. I was not, however, a "slutty" cheerleader.

I was looking at the Party City flyers in October, and almost all of the women's costumes were, shall we say, sleazy. And I read on some blogs that even pre-teens are now going for the slutty look. I say, if the highlight of your Halloween is going out in public dressed like a sex-industry worker, maybe you've got some issues to work on. Just sayin'. (Of course, what you wear in the privacy of your own home is completely up to you. As far as that goes, what you wear in public is completely up to you.)

So! While I was a cheerleader, my outfit was modest. Granted, the skirt was above-the-knee, but just barely. And my top, while red, was not low-cut or see-through. And I wore not stilettos (although I do have some), but flat shoes. Amish devil's cheerleader!

I'm not really sure why I wanted to clear that up, but I feel better now.

It seems all the costumes are slutty something - slutty nurse, slutty maid, sexy witch, whatever.

CollegeDaughter came home so I could make her a costume that wasn't slutty. It was short and cute, but not slutty.

Slutty-anything in public is never a good idea. I am so glad my daughter doesn't do slutty.

Phew...
