Olives

one of my simple daily outfits. these are my favorite cargo pants that i keep going back to. they're a size too small, but the stretchy material makes it okay to wear. decided to take out this brown canvas louis vuitton out after ages hiding at the back of the closet. this is one of the 1092301 reasons why I don't like getting rid of the things in my closet. Most of them, they come in handy about 2/3 years after I bought it.
Is it only me, or is the cycle of fashion trends get recycled faster now than it was in the last century ? I mean during the 1920s-1990s .. trends stay for around 10 years each time (well that's what the history books say anyway) for example.. the whole flapper looks was in the 20s and the hippie look in the 70s.. but today, a trend can last as short as 3 months ! or is it because the advancement of textile machinery makes it easier for brands to produce more clothing? i dont know what's the real answer for this.. my post will soon turn into an essay if I try to discuss the whole possibility of this fast-paced-trends topic..

i ALWAYS have a pair of havaianas in my car. very useful for errands and those rainy days where puddles destruct your suede shoes

herwaisechoice said...

I LOVE those wedges. Totally amazing!!! They look so edgy but polished at the same time.

And you brought up such an interesting point in your post. I've never really thought about it but perhaps it is possibly because the technology today allows fads to be made aware throughout the world faster. It has also produced a whole generation of young people with attention spans that are way shorter than what people used to have... which might explain why we need constant change and excitement?

Anyway, your blog is great (and I never say that!)!

Take care!
Jen

tee said...

I agree, trends are being recycled quicker and quicker these days.

Juliet said...

I think it's about that we have averything faster these days, people get bored much more faster, we're not waiting for the snail mail, if the guy won't text us the same day he's history etc. Also because the whole world is linked so closely together it takes just minutes to find out the main trends in australia, paris or chile.

apart from that I think it is hard for us to see the main look that would describe us now. Most likely it will be about the silhouette ( skinny jeans, leggings, etc and loose top for an example) but also it won't be for a whole decade.

Or what do you think of these?

Sweet said...

I love the casual outfit and how you discussed the trends lately...I did try to research about that...because as far as I know...it gets recycled more often now....I do not know...which is timeless anymore hahaha!!!!

love the necklace and the drawing Michelle...

Kisses love

Gina said...

i've been thinking alot about that lately too, fashion cycles so much more quickly than it used to. I think we have really short attention spans, we can always find something newer or more exciting just by clicking on a new webpage. We used to have to wait to get our magazines in the mail each month :)

great post, and great shirt

&&& FABULOUS shoes!

I attribute short-lived trends to the fact that our attention spans are getting shorter and shorter.

The thing I like about trend recycling is that most trends tend to come back within the next couple of years so you get quite a bit of wear out of things :P
