Urban Dictionary: Little Black Dress: for the sole purpose of seducing men. Most women have one in the recesses of their closet. This is the dress that is just a little too short. Just a little too tight. One that hugs curves you never knew you had. One that looks as if it was made for your body and your body only. One that makes you feel sexy the second you put it on. It has to be simple. All black, no buttons or ornamentation. The exhibition of the LBD should only be used in emergencies because once revealed, it would never again have its full potency.

This definition implies that older women could have no possible use for a little black dress. Allow me to adjust this thinking. Little, short, tight, and revealing isn't the only definition of sexy. Our little black dress is classy, elegant, timeless, uptown... even chic.

The clip below from 'August: Osage County' speaks to the split standard regarding aging men and women.

Women aren't sexy when they're old. Says who?

    Love the portrait, Bailey! I think we seniors as who are on JPG have proven that as we grow older we have to work harder to stay fit ... it takes the right attitude, determination, eating right and exercising as no one else is going to do it for it takes a photography site like this to keep us movitated.
