I’ve got more issues than Vogue
As I am writing this post I look down and there are totally potato chips all over my top from lunch… That’s ironic… I have issues…
No, this photo shoot was not about a breakup.
You know that day that just went so wrong that guy in your life was the last thing on your mind? You still got dressed and put your heels on, because that’s what you do.
I have that country song ringing through my head. When I first heard this song on the radio I was really insulted… Ok, now I remember the title… I just looked up the song… Dierks Bentley with Elle King wrote “Different for Girls”. Have you heard it?
“It’s different for girls, when their hearts get broke / They can’t tape it back together, with a whiskey and Coke / They don’t take someone home and act like it’s nothing / They can’t switch it off every time they feel something / A guy gets drunk with his friends and he might hook up / Fast forward through the pain, push ‘em back when the tears come up / But it’s different for girls.”
(Elle King) “She don’t sleep all day, and leave the house a wreck / She don’t have the luxury to let herself go / She won’t call, just to cuss / Find a wall, she can punch / When the going gets tough, yeah the guys they can just act tough.”
“It’s different for girls, nobody said it was fair / When love disappears they can’t pretend it was never there.”
The song is not a sexist chauvinistic representation of gender roles, only because Dierks Bentley is a father to two girls and a boy. Taste of Country wrote
“Different for Girls” doesn’t pity, sympathize or violently lash out against obstacles women in our culture are faced with daily. It offers understanding and true, on-the-equal compassion.
That’s cool. Dirks Bentley observed the difference between his son and daughters. I am sure if my dad wrote a country song about my siblings and I, it would be about our love lives…. just kidding. That would be weird. Dad don’t do that. Guys and girl’s do deal with their issues differently. I still am hesitant about whether I agree with the song or not. What do you think? Anyways…
This is merely a girl who had a bad day and decided to put her heels on again.

Shoes are important. Here are the ones on my wish list:
Here are my favorite dresses from Akira for the fall.
Hey, thanks for scrolling down and reading my long blog post! Now I am going to go run off those potato chips I had four hours ago. Keep looking fabulous enough if you have more Issues than Vogue.
Have a Full Color DAY!!!!
