Velvet Underground is about velvet… worn underneath But I had to use the name of the band!
I wrote on a previous post that I’m glad that this season velvet comes as a “trend”. I don’t really “believe” in trends, because “everything” comes back. I wear velvet since I was a little girl, every year, so I can’t see it as a trend. I know that many nice blogger friends said “you’re ahead”, so sweet But no, I need to disappoint everybody – I’m not ahead, on the contrary It’s because I’m rather “old” that I’ve already worn these come back trends
But the fashion industry, ah… we don’t need 150 bags, 50 lipsticks, 25 velvet dresses, 30 palettes, but we have some of these things. Why? The fashion industry “pushes” us to want more and more, relaunching “trends”, to keep on selling to us – things we don’t really need. Having said this, I say that I’m not perfect, so I also have things in excess. I don’t like new year’s resolutions, but for 2017 I’m seriously thinking of a more attentive consumption way. I’m always designing furniture to accommodate new things, that I end up rarely wearing. This excess is not good for (my) life, IMHO.
Has your consumption style changed along the years?
Wishing you a beautiful week with many smiles! Thanks for the sweet comments!
See you on Friday, with Friday Feelings!
