Today i went to work as usual on a Friday, and by mid afternoon i realised i had been thinking about a certain customer all day! .. NOT in a freaky or stalking way, she had just got me thinking about how fashion is basically a list of trends repeated over and over until a new trend is occasionally thrown in , and added onto that same list only to get repeated years later.
This is what got me thinking about how trends, especially in today's day and age are re - used again and again either fully or just a piece of the design throughout time to bring up new fashionable designs. This lady in particular obviously had a good eye for practical fashion as this pattern she had purchased roughly fourty years ago still comes in useful. Then i got thinking that surely this should apply to us all if only even myself when im out shopping ? Countless times i have found myself in H&M , Topshop or Primark picking up items because i think their 'bargain pieces' or resemble something ive recently seen in one of Lady Gaga's music videos? ( lady gaga fans - don't get defensive! As fantastic as her outfits are, i would never see myself being able to pull them off! ) But quite frankly , the days are very rare when i wonder through rails of stock in any department store and find an item that will last me 40 years. However, im sure there are many things that i could tweak here and there to give myself a completely new look without having to break the bank! The only thing i need to do now ... is remember this next time im out on the highstreet ! wish me luck ...
