When I was in the rag trade, I just felt so alive!!! I think because fashion is always embracing always in the pursuit of something new - the next best thing. Some things are here for 5 minutes while others hold on for near a lifetime.
I used to puruse through fashion magazines and cut out outfits and ideas that I just loved! Using old diaries for scrap books Id paste in my little lovlies. Hubby threatened to throw them out the other day - NO WAY!! Not only do I still love my choices, but each picture actually triggers a memory of youth, see I started doing this at age 14.
It seems different now, everyone is in awe of the BIG brands, the expensive unattainable break my heart/bank numbers. Its not just about going into a shop - any shop and saying 'hey! thats cute, I like it!' No, apparently now it has to have the right name along with the pricey tag of hell to go with it!
such a rip off.
Its so much more fun not being tied to a particular brand and loving something because its great fabric, well made or a little different from the norm!
