Fitness, Health and Wellness Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Blog Protesting Recent Opinions on Standards for Age-Appropriate Fashion Rules

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, shows her disdain for fashion faux pas that are dictated by other women’s opinions.

NEW YORK, NY – June 15, 2011 – Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published a blog on her website discussing a Fox News survey of women’s opinions of fashion rules at certain ages. Dr. Veronica explains her stance in her blog, titled “Age-Appropriate Fashion Rules.”

Dr. Anderson writes, “Oh, no they didn’t! I just have to say something about this. On an episode of the Today Show last month, the team reported on a survey that collected the thoughts of women across our nation. The topic was age-appropriateness related to clothing and hair. To my surprise, the survey results put an incredibly strict lockdown on fashion rules for today’s ladies over the age of 35! Not only did the opinions state that older women could not wear two piece bathing suits or miniskirts, they even went so far as to say that women over 50 need to ditch the high heels and long hair!”

“I say wear and do whatever you want to do. If wrinkly and rich Hugh Hefner can marry a 24 year old playmate, then the rest of us can certainly wear bikinis and long hair past the age that Hugh would date. Heck, I even go blonde in the summer (and y’all know I am a black woman)! Ladies… forget what the opinion surveys say. What is most important is that healthy bodies and people of all ages in all kinds of fashion are beautiful. What is ugly, however, is sickness. So let grandma wear her bikini, but make sure that both grandma – and you – are eating nutritious foods, and avoiding vices that do damage to your health,” asserts Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
