Lipgloss & Lace


               by Mandie Mutchie

In my last edition of Lipgloss & Lace, I explored body issues (again), specifically with the focus being on the drama between “Fit Mom,” and “Curvy Girl.”

I want to take a look even further, and to illustrate my point in a much stronger way than I could with words, please check out this video before continuing reading.


Wow. If you’re anything like me, you may need some time to process that. You may need the time to grab a tissue and dab away a tear.

Now… First of all, how beautiful! I thought it was such an amazing project, and one that really hit me hard. Why, you might ask?

I felt that it was SO BRAVE of the people in the video to do what they did. In fact, I thought to myself “I am not even sure if I would want to see that of me!”

A friend and I had a feeling that we had distorted ideas of our own body images, and set out to find each other’s body double, which we never successfully found. In fact, the closest to my body double was actually a drag performer, since I am on the muscular side. Can you imagine having a mannequin made with your measurements?

I think there should be. What percentage of people are shaped like store mannequins? I bet it is under 5%.

Mannequins as representation of how clothes are supposed to fit are just another way that fitting in with an ideal (and a nearly impossible to reach one, at that) is perpetuated.

Here’s another video that I thought was a great summary of how the media affects our self-esteems.

We’re all familiar with the photoshopping and such, but what can we do about it? I thought it was so profound when she said that the first thing she said is that we need to recognize it. This is a big challenge for me, too! I need to stop comparing myself to images I see in magazines. Even Cindy Crawford wished she looked like Cindy Crawford! While I love the photoshopped version of myself, and I love my unretouched self, I need to learn to love the latter more (say that ten times fast)!

A while back, I said that I needed to make a commitment to spreading positivity in my own media and social media, and I am going to do that now by recognizing a magazine that has a no-photoshop policy that I love!

Here’s an article and some pictures to go with it!

I have to say that I love that white suit, and it looks way better Realway than on the Runway!

As a designer, or as a boutique owner, or press, or whatever your role is in the industry, what can you do to help the self esteem of your customer? If you’re a woman, how can you empower yourself? How can you empower other women?

Before I conclude, I want to give a taste of things to come, as well as an invitation.

First of all, I wanted to invite you all to take part in a 30-day goal setting and organizational challenge that I will be leading on facebook starting Wednesday, January first. If you are interested, please contact me! My info is below.

Secondly, if you aren’t already, please follow me on social media, as I will be making a big announcement in the next couple weeks. I am super excited! Plus, I love connecting with people and would love to dialogue with you all!

Finally, let’s make a commitment to positivity in 2014! Who’s with me?

xoxo,

Mandie

Third Time’s the Charm


The Halloween industry is quite busy churning out
1,000’s of costumes per year. Many sexy costumes from at least one hundred different manufactures.
So it’s kind of surprising when one of your costumes
gets singled out on television. It’s even more of a
surprise when 3 of your designs get chosen. Well that’s what happened to Mark Behar who’s 99% salesman 1% designer.

A couple of years ago The Ellen Degeneres show called and wanted to include Behar’s Nemo costume on her show.
Being that Ellen played the incredibly well liked Dori
in the hit movie it was a natural.
The “Finding Nemo” segment was hysterical stating that it looked like Nemo went to Hooters. The costume proved to be a certified number one hit for a couple of years.

It did come as a shock to Behar when two of his other designs hit the airwaves. Degeneres once again found one of Mark’s designs; the Chocolate Chip Cookie sold exclusively atYandy.com and featured it on the hit show. Ellen stated “nothing says sexy like a half eaten cookie”.

The 3rd and final design that made the air waves, really had everyone laughing. Mark’s sexy Jolly Ranchers were being named one of the ten worst sexy costumes of the year. The Jolly Rancher featured Gina Marie of Big Brother 15, which brought more attention to the costume. There is no end to the amount of press dedicated to it.

When asked about his good fortune of having his designs all over the airwaves Behar just had to laugh.
“With all the thousands of costumes being created each year I really find it awesome that Ellen keeps discovering my designs.” Mark said laughing. ” I have some fun ones coming out again this year so who knows where they will end up.”
