Trends


In honor of the introduction of the iPhone by Apple I bring this to you from the old blog..

What is a trend
Is it a means or an end?
How can beauty
..................... yesterday?

Vanish away?

What is beauty?
Real or imagined?
A car that was truly beautiful and desirable in its day
Sitting ugly in the garage bay.
A pair of glasses that was the height of high design
Now hidden away thick in its dusty shrine.
Weren’t they beautiful in their time?
They haven’t changed

We want to know
that you know
and they know
that we have
what you say
and they say
is beautiful
Is desirable
And the minute
That they stop
And you stop
To say so
Then the new scent
Disappears
And we wait
And see
What you’ll say
And they’ll say
Is beautiful
Next

And that my friend
Is a trend


.

However I must say to all you Windows users out there that are going gaga over this new phone. We Mac users have known for years that an Operating System and the Hardware that houses it can be beautiful, elegant and easy to use.

The beauty of trends is that they are usually circular - what goes around comes around and what was fashionable in the days of your parents will be trendy in the days of your children.

Perhaps the most ironic thing about trends is how quickly they come back, and everyone rushes to by new stuff. I still have wide ties; I still have thin ties. When called for, i can select any of my old ones, and I'll look fine.
Now, with the advent of the retro chic/used look, I think the most pathetic thing is how companie now manufacture items with "distressed" looks.
Hello? I had to work hard to get my stuff to look the way they do, and now I can just buy it that way?
Nuts...

I have always said that styles is someone playing with your head. remember little boys in shorts that were really short, as in covering their undies? If you saw a kid like that today you'd laugh. but back then it was really nice.

The crazy thing is how you really start to love something even though you hated it a few minutes ago... At this point i've just succumbed and I don't even bother going through the hating part... :)

I had a MAC for about 5 minutes and it hated me. It was so pretty though...

Are you going to get the Iphone? If you are, I'm SOOO jealous.

my opinion on this phone is, I need some sort of buttons for the numbers. i think it would drive me crazy to just have a screen. i have a phone similar to this but i still have actual buttons.

Thats usually true...and while there are some decades (40s and 50s) that I dont mind imitating..there are others (70s..).I'd rather not come back..lol

Jewmaican...

I wish I can get kids designers to make shabbos suits with holes in the knees in style...would make my life much easier..lol

Thanks for the tag..Basically I have to reveal 7 things about me..while still keeping my anonymity?

Its all a mystery to me..

I know, that is exactly what I was trying to say... it's so strange...

And btw, if you were a teenager in the 90's you definitely remember those shorts! My husband is probably a little younger than you and he wore them..

Dave, I can probably dig through my old kids clothing and send you some, complete with the "worn" look. Plus, with the age of said clothing, it'll have that retro chic look as well...:)

I am referring to shorts that come to maybe, midthigh. I am too young for leave it to beaver! my sister in law had a boy first, then a bunch of girls, and then another boy. she went up into her attic to find something for her little boy to wear and came up with this pair of shorts... we were laughing at her for putting it on the kid, but she insisted that if it was nice back then, it is still nice.
