Perceptions

Something feels wrong.

I was musing to myself that I would love to dress like this woman come summer.

Then I looked at the caption:

"Prostitute, Calcutta."

Oh.

It's funny how style is perceived, isn't it? When I think of prostitutes, I think of fishnet stockings and raunchy outfits, not a delicate lace dress and sun hat. This woman's outfit is more Keira Knightly in Pirates of the Caribbean than Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, and I would wear it for a stroll in a garden, or maybe a day at the beach.

And I would not expect to be treated like a whore.

Perceptions, perceptions . . .

There are prostitutes working the secretary chic look too so it's not all fishnets and all of that...!
