The prompt I chose for today’s Writer’s Workshop is:
4.) In honor of the “white” after Memorial Day rule, name a fashion rule that you either break or enforce.
It was surprisingly difficult to find an adequate definition of ‘fashion rules’ and I have never been able to actually pinpoint just who determines fashion. Google never lets me down, nor does Wikipedia but today the search took a little longer. Or it would have if I had been in the mood to look. I can’t say I have ever been ‘out of fashion’ but that is because of friends who are just a little too enthusiastic about fashion rules. It just isn’t a biggie with me.
Ask.com had some good information. The question was, ‘What is your number one fashion rule’?
And the answer was, ‘Underwear almost always goes on the inside’. It made sense to me, but then I have seen that particular rule broken more than once. I guess that is why the word ‘almost’ is there.
I tried to think of a fashion icon and unfortunately remembered on the news the other day; Lady Gaga was presented with an award for her fashion sense. I swear!
I went to facebook to look at pics posted by friends to see what they were wearing. It’s all very casual these days. I must admit I did not see anyone with underwear on the outside so that is a good thing.
I used to like the fashions of the sixties. It was neat, feminine and I happily embraced the rules then and everything matched.
My sister-in-law keeps up on fashion and frankly I cannot wrap my mind around some of it. For instance, did you know that your purse should no longer match anything? And your shoes shouldn’t match anything? In fact the latest thing is that you should wear a neutral color shoe with a black dress?
White before or after Memorial Day does not matter to me at all. It depends strictly on the weather.
There is only one fashion rule I adhere to and that one was made by my niece.
“Never ever dress like an old lady.” Unfortunately I came across a morning fashion advice show that showed clothing that no one over forty should wear AND there before me on public TV was my entire wardrobe. It’s a darn good thing I don’t really care!
