FUNDAMENTALIST FASHION CAN GET YOU OVERHEATED
The Stepford Wives of the polygamist cult in Texas had it worse than we even imagined – at least in the fashion department. Women who didn’t adhere to the strict pioneer style clothing and modest demeanor that the men decreed, could NOT go to heaven. Every day, women piled on four or five layers of underwear, leggings, and slips. Over it all they wore their handmade pastel POLYESTER dresses – because polyester is considered practical and “lasts forever.” Imagine dressing like THAT and working under the boiling hot Texas sun! Bright colors- especially red- were forbidden. Sensible Skechers lace up shoes completed the fetching uniforms.
