This dress, this dress

Ok I am airing views again. This dress, to me, is just beautiful. I know that there are women out there with tons of money who can look beyond the ugly hairdo, corrective shoes, and the hateful stare of the model. I have been noticing that there are so many things that have changed about models and I am lost.

I don't understand why a designer would want to put his work on an ugly model.

I don't understand why teasing hair out to there is a good look.

I don't understand why gapped teeth are suddenly all the rage. In my day- braces.

I don't understand why models no longer have real bodies. Just bones with a light covering.

I don't understand why on the runway models frown and walk stiffly like automatons. The people who buy the clothes don't do that.

I don't understand why models, celebs, and just everyday folks are doing the pigeon toed pose. Again, in my day, corrective shoes.

I don't understand the latest fads in shoes at all.

I don't understand how a regular person is supposed to wear the see thru clothing without getting charged with indecent exposure.

I don't understand one shoulder dresses and patterned tights and skinny jeans or jeggings.

Boy do I feel old.


  1. I totally get you and I feel the same.
    I think maybe the show ugly models so you will look at the clothes ?!
    Honestly I have been more inspired by bloggers that anything I have ever seen on a runway.

  2. Hi Judy!

    maybe I can help you understand today's fashion world a little better (I used to work in fashion). The runway fashions are just an extravagant elaborate show designed to get a reaction (any reaction) from the audience, therefore the more outrageous, the better.
    The clothes on the runway are later 'toned-down', re-sized, graded before they go on sale in the stores. The item in the store will look much more wearable than on the runway model!

    have a nice day,
