It's Wacky Wednesday folks and ya know, I really do pride myself on keepin' up with fashion trends. If somethin' is gonna look decent on this old hag, I'll go with it. So imagine my disappointment when I found out that I seriously can not get in on the latest fad because I was too quick to jump on the band wagon over a decade ago which makes it impossible now. That's right folks. Over ten years ago, laser hair removal was all the rage so I had my underarms lasered. My pits are now as smooth as a baby's bottom. No more hair growth means I can't dye my pit hairs like Miley Cyrus and thousands of women who say it's a fun new trend. Sadly, no matchy matchy outfits and armpits for me. I could have so rocked this look.
The New York Times recently wrote an article about this trend, and there's even a website called Free Your Pits which blogs about how armpit hair is empowering women. Ya have to admit not shaving is so much easier and freeing. I can just imagine how seeing those hairs grow longer and longer would give you that feeling of empowerment. And don't dismay ladies 'cause there are plenty of "how to" videos on YouTube showing you how to properly bleach your underarm hair at home. There is simply no excuse for not being a loyal follower. Who needs matching purses and shoes anymore when you can dye your armpits the bright colors of your gorgeous new Lily Pulitzer dress?
Some feminist groups are even staging pit-ins where they will dye their pit hairs as a group and then raise money for a certain cause. Now that is pit power people! So who is throwin' out their razors, lettin' their pit hair grow, and takin' a trip to Sally's Beauty Supply for some dye?
Think about little ol' me who's stuck with a beautiful new sleeveless lavender shirt, and instead of matching it with lavender pit hairs, I have to go bald. That's the freakin' pits!
