This past weekend I read an interesting post by Deanna at Crunchy Chicken. Her post was about how, in our consumerist society, clothing has become dirt cheap and we are driven to buy clothes that we don't need. She talks about two women who spent a year wearing the same dress, something that probably seems shocking to some. Deanna asked her readers if they would be willing to wear the same outfit or a uniform every day for a month and many commented that they could.
This discussion reminded me of an article I read (somewhere but I can't remember) about how people in the fashion business - the very ones that push the latest, greatest styles on us - actually wear uniforms! Of course, they don't call it that; they sexily package it as their "signature style." The people who are considered the epitome of style just say no to their own industry. Something to think about.
