So, here we are then...

This is yet another fashion blog....  Yup, so far, so frivolous.  Because fashion is just silly girls shopping for shoes isn't it?  Yeah, it'll be lots of 'today i wore' pictures, articles on 'the ultimate mascara', the 'new' pencil/mini/maxi/ra-rah skirt and all that kind of stuff.

Because thats all fashion is, isn't it?  Its 'a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months', isn't it?  It doesn't actually have any meaning does it..?

Except it does.  Not just the stuff about shoes, but its everywhere.  Look at your computer.  Tell me you bought it on processing power and all that practical stuff.  Really?  Admit it, you liked the colour didn't you?  That, my dears, is fashion.  Even the refusal to make a fashion statement, is a fashion statement.  By stating you don't care about fashion, you admit it has an effect.  Fashion can be anything, clothes, cars, politics, music, films.  Everything we care about, everything we like, is influenced by the style statements we choose or refuse to make.

Not everything is about fashion, but fashion is about everything...
