Minimalism is Good for Women
It’s good for men, too, but there are special considerations for us females. American/consumerist culture thrives on female’s sense of inadequacy. Women are vulnerable to persuasion to change their hair, their makeup, their noses, their bodies, their wardrobes, their shoes and purses, their furniture, their tableware, their everything. Not all women are vulnerable in this way, of course, but far too many are. The end result of the persuasion is money spent, items accumulated, then more money spent and items accumulated.
Keys for a minimalist woman:
Your hair is your hair is your hair. Cut it yourself, too.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Love your nose & your boobs.
If you eat mindfully, you’ll likely be a healthy weight and your skin will look its best as well.
Simple clothing looks wonderful on everyone & can be worn just about anywhere.
Take care of your feet, and you will keep your dignity. Nothing screams “fashion victim” more than fuck-me shoes.
Live in the real world. Don’t play house–live in your house.
If you learn to live happily alone, you won’t need to change a thing about yourself to appeal to a worthy mate.
If you talk the talk, walk the walk–it will be natural to share these values with friends and family, particularly your kids.
And all this keeps it simple.
And a helluva lot easier than the alternatives.
