back in time

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.

i like her last outfit, and i do generally like 20s style, but the first two are awful to me. i agree with you--too costume-y.

I like 50s and 60s style. Paris Hilton's my new BFF is not a bad show.

That is why fashion is so diverse now. It pretty much lets us be ourselves. Wear what ever pleases you. Each of us enjoys different styles because each of us are individuals. Makes the world a less dull place ;)

i kind of am digging her flapper-inspired style. i think it's just refreshing to not see paris in a micro-mini-tank-top-as-a-dress. =P

She takes something that should be classic and turns it garish...
