Wrinkles…ugly on faces…and outfits.

I just scooped these from Twitter. First, @thecoveted posted this about LiLo, which continues to reinforce my sermon about the dangers of tanning. And drugs…yeah, they’re no good either. But, anyway, here’s the tweet:

sometimes i wonder how people ‘get away’ with the party lifestyle, then i get reminded, they don’t. http://twurl.nl/hyby5q

Did ya click that link? See LiLo’s dramatic change from age 18 to 23? Granted, wrinkles are an inevitable part of the aging process. Well, actually, it is now possible to eradicate them almost completely, so that is not entirely true. But at 23? Not normal, and highly preventable.

Then @marie_claire_au posted this:

This is what you’ll see if you click the twitpic link above:

You’re doing a special appearance and you roll up in an obviously wrinkled frock? Those are totally preventable wrinkles! She might be the Lipstick Queen, but no matter how successful, smart, witty, or savvy Miss Poppy is, that wrinkled dress ruins it. It looks like she pulled the dress from the bottom of a heap of clothes. Even if she came from a hotel, there are irons. Totally unacceptable and totally unprofessional.

It’s all in the details, people. You can sport the most fantastic outfit but if you don’t manage the details, you might as well be clad in a burlap sack.
