Their hearts are true, they're your pals and your confidants. If you threw a party, and invited everyone you knew, you would see the biggest gift would be from them and the card attached would say "thank you for being a friend." This week's WOMEN Crush Wednesday are the Golden Girls!
Rose, Blanche, Dorothy, and Sophia brought laughter to audiences everywhere starting in 1985. The Golden Girls was a show about "old" women but it never ceased to feel young and bright. The characters themselves, fictional though they may be, are inspiring examples of how life doesn't end after 50. Rose has her boundless optimism, Blanche has her drive, Dorothy has her wit, and Sophia has her ageless charm and that attitude of being old enough to do whatever she wants. The show was riveting, a deep dive into the world of geriatrics that never ceased to entertain.
Today society focuses on the young and vibrant parts of life, but these women showed us how vibrancy doesn't have to be tied to age. They had adventures, drama, romance, intrigue, and they were women! Just older! And that's a comforting thought, that here we are getting older every year but that doesn't mean we must succumb to normalcy. Life is what you make it, no matter what stage of life you are in.
If the Golden Girls wore Entourage, we imagine they would straight for the floral section for tops like this one. After all, they do live in Miami! And given their class, they would probably want a white bomber to go with.
