It is unbelievable the amount of time I ‘waste’ on following my friend’s feeds or reading articles that they post or videos that they link. While I am fascinated by everything and really use this feed as my new source as well, not just for silly stuff and gossip, I often justify the amount of time I spend. Sometimes I get caught up in looking at their cat’s amazing feat videos – which is cute, I guess, but definitely a waste of my time and better judgement. But, then, there are times when one thing leads to another, as is typical when one is surfing the internet, and you find something that makes you think, inspires you to write and giggle, and takes you back to a different time in your life when a dress like this (featured left) was in style. But wait, it gets better, this is a dress that is currently selling by someone with celebrity status…which naturally will make it trendy somewhere (probably LA) today! The cowl neck? Seriously? The color scheme and pattern of this frock have sent my neurons a-flurry. Not in a good way. I guess this is what is called retro. I did have a sweater dress, once. I did wear these patterns and color schemes, once. It was called the 70’s.
While any gorgeous model looks amazing in anything you throw on her, because she is gorgeous, this particular outfit placed on any housewife with a muffin top or a double chin? – this piece is a no-no. Not like I’m the expert. We’ve covered that ground how I should never be regarded as a fashionista, but I do know what the average mom probably would say about this if she saw it on the racks in Macy’s. Labeled as ‘multicolored chevron stripe decoration’ – last time I checked Chevron was a company dedicated to producing safe energy. Perhaps because of Chevron’s logo? The name of this pattern was born…artists are so weird. Designers fall into the category of artist – and don’t get me wrong… I LOVE DESIGNERS AND DESIGN SHOWS, for realz…sadly. I do have some anti-very-negative-feelings about artists. They are weird. Okay, now I know I sound elitist a bit by condemning artists and cat videos, but I’m not, I accept that we are all a bit weird in some way or another.
