That is so new age, she said with that nasal Valley intonation I have grown to despise.
It sounds so bored and annoying at the same time. Almost designed to let you know that you don't belong and that the person is looking down over their nose at you.
What the fuck is the meaning of looking new age anyway? That the outfit is not up to standards?
I am so proud of it. All made from recycled materials in bold colors. I used a sewing technique that makes the stitches stand out and it looks designer worthy.
But let's face it. Designer clothes belong on the stage. The runway. Not that anyone is ever running. With their high heels, they certainly would fall over.
Anything you see on the runway would look just wrong if an ordinary person were to wear it -just about anywhere.
Some of the clothing looks like rugs and if the face of the body wearing the creations is not that of a Hollywood star, people would laugh and tell you to get lost.
Even on a star or in a magazine, it often just doesn't look good. But we can convince ourselves that it does look great. Remember the big shoulder pads and BIG hair of the 80s - at least I think that was the time. They look terrible now and we don't know what we were thinking.
Taste changes. And we try to submit ourselves and our bodies to the standards of the times. Twiggy made everyone with a normal body starve themselves and still never reach the Holy Grail of being so skinny that the slightest wind can blow you over.
At another time, being fat was the way to go.
Wouldn't it be nice if we can be beautiful the way we are. Full stop. Just the way we are.
