Yes, I salute you “Girly-girls”!!! You are the ladies. You are the women. You are the ones who dress appropriately no matter what the fashion trend. You are the ones who have unleashed your feminism from within. Instead of being the ‘eye candy’, you have shown us that you walk with poise in those 6” platform heels. You are the ones who hold your heads up and walk with strength and power. You are the females who know how to sit in a dress with ankles crossed instead of legs crossed showing your thighs. You are well mannered and considerate with high standards of appropriate behavior, well behaved, demanding respect by the confident way you walk in the room and noticed by male and female alike. Yes, the “Girly-girls” are the ones who will mature with grace and teach the younger ones how to be wives and how to keep house and how to raise children. Yes, you are the ‘Girly-girls’ that I salute today!!!
