Beauty is really in the eye of the beholder. Recently I watched a documentary about long neck tribal people living in China, there are others in Thailand as well. Girls from a young age have these copper loops wrap around their neck, increasing in numbers of loops as their necks lengthen with time. Why? It is said to protect women's necks from wild animals and others say it is to honor their tribal god.
I respect different cultures and their traditions but why do I see these imposed on women majority of the time. In old China, women had their feet wrapped into these lotus bud looking shape in the name of beauty. Now, I see these cooper loops put around a gal's neck. Underneath, skin looks black and blue which is quite hard for me to watch. I hope it will heal with time. But, these gals don't have a problem as this is a tradition so I won't say anymore. I am sure they look at us wearing sky high heels and thinks us crazy. Anyhoo, this is just a random thought about beauty and tradition. Have a great weekend friends!

Speaking of beauty.....
Honestly, I think this floral Prada tote will look better as a throw pillow or something like it. In the last couple of seasons, I was so in adoration with Prada bags, but from what I have seen this season so far, my wallet is pretty safe. Anyhoo, I just can't see myself spending $2250 on this tote. The only thing I like about the bag is the pink color. It is also available in yellow print. What do you think of this tote?
