Unemployment doesn't suit me. Honestly, now that I'm home and not traveling all over like I was last month summer vaca has been lazy! And this laziness has motivated me to watch even more trash tv than I normally would (which is actually a lot anyway...). One of my favorite guilty pleasures at the moment has to be Paris Hilton's My New BFF. The only thing I object to about this show is Paris's 1920's influenced style (yes, it's the style I'm objecting to, not the shameless fame whoring).
I love vintage styles, the 1950's, 60's, and 80's are among my favorite decades, and while I can even get behind victorian or greecian inspired looks I am just not digging the flapper look. It's a little too middle school halloween party for me. I don't mean to imply that Paris is some fashion icon, I only mean to show my distaste for her new image. I don't mind the over the top pretty in pink, it's just this attempt at individualism that bothers me. Although, maybe Paris has had a history lesson? Her lifestyle does match that of the party girl flapper who flaunted her boyish figure in scandalous mini skirts.
