Rhetorical Question ***
Is this an outfit that a grown woman should wear?
The hoary old admonition to wear decent underwear lest you shock the tender sensibilities of your local emergency workers came up recently on the You Look Fab forum. A real, live Emergency Room Worker chimed in to say that tattered knickers were generally attributed to whatever chain of events landed the person in the ER. However, a woman who arrived sans any 'small clothes' whatsoever did cause more than a small amount of gossip.
What would these grizzled individuals have to say about a middle aged woman dressed like Minnie Mouse?
