My friend brought this article to my attention about a month ago and I’ve been meaning to write a post on it for a while. But with Christmas and all, I’ve been a bit of a busy bee. But his constant nagging has lead me to cave in :-P. I admit it’s a bit of difficult post to write as it’s something, in my opinion, is a bit sensitive and controversial. But I want to get people’s opinions on the subject and also see if my readers that aren’t from the UK have similar experiences.
In summary, the article interviewed and followed a number of young women from different major cities across the UK on a night out. Now these women were from a variety of different backgrounds; they followed trainee accountants, social workers, students, nurses, and mothers. They coined the term ‘stripper-chic‘ to refer to the attire that these young women wore on their evenings out. Fake tans, lashes, low cut tops and tiny hem lines are the ‘mask’ they put on before going out in the freezing cold.
