Fashion is the devil.....

I though some of you would be interested to see that the tyranny of fashion is no new thing, this cartoon dates from 1913 and shows that even before the advent of flappers and during the so called golden age before the first world war we were being ordered to do this and that.

I'm alarmed at the moment by the concept of vajazzling and porn star pruning down below.Might be my age but I find both stomach turning, about as appealing as rubbing sick on my face. As for the stupidity of thin, I am both disgusted by and bored of the subject, quite a feat.

Mind you I am no better, exceedingly grateful not to have thick ankles or a skin colour I dislike. Amazingly I actually like having a pale, freckly on the blue side complexion. It is really quite versatile, I can paint myself any kind of brown, wear very dramatic colours and love my little flecks of brown. How dull it must be not to have them!

Mind you I love most of my friends because they know how to exaggerate what they have, my scottish friend has a modigliani face and a mane of ferocious hair, a London friend has painted on eyebrows, gorgeous eyes and the expression of a cheeky 30's starlet, another friend from the midlands has a voluptous figure, platinum pin curls and more va voom than a room full of Moss wannabees. I admire women who make themselves more beautiful.

If fashion is a demon we should get him to buy us a drink, flirt a little, turn his diktats into paper aeroplanes and then callously run off with an imp called 'style'.

Have a lovely weekend everyone! xxx

I usually do not drop a great deal of remarks, however I looked at a few of the comments on "Fashion is the devil.....".
I do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind.
Is it only me or do a few of these responses look as if they are coming from brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I'd like to follow you. Would you post a list of the complete urls of your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
