Frivolous Fantasies

Just as Malaysians were settling into the trend of indie music and gigs, up pops another craze that's been keeping the teens and young adults busy on most weekends.

Yup, its the fashion bazaars.

I am all for young, independent women carving their names out in the business world, one handmade piece at a time. I adore all their pretty clothes and jewellery and of course their fashion sense which range from simple and chic to quirky and unforgettable. I admire their willpower and creativity in setting up online boutiques to offer such fantastic products at cheap prices.

Here's the catch. It's just another one of those fads that will fail to entertain those highly fickle teenagers in 6 months time. And, it's really funny to have the masses dressing in outfits that were previously thought of as daggy and individualistic.

Hell, you're not cool and different anymore when 12 of your friends dress up in granny 'vintage' clothes like you. The only statement you're making is that of fashion follower/victim than of a pioneer. Okay, you can tell people you started the trend, but when they see 9 other people in the same room wearing the same style, do you really think they'd believe you?

Haha. Relax. We're all fashion victims. Me included. I'd be deluded to think I have the upper hand when it comes to looking stylo. However, I do have the upper hand when it comes to not giving a shit about wearing tshirts and jeans or shorts. And flip flops.

Nevertheless, I still find all these eboutiques and weekend bazaars very appealing. And I'm going to check them out when I step onto home soil.

ps: Say hello to the new President of The United States. I'm just thoroughly glad that bimbo isn't VP. See what celebrity power can do? I'm telling you, Obama had pretty much 2 thirds of the A-listers behind him. How can he NOT have been victorious?

Therapeutic Ramblings
A dash of Disney, a sprinkle of pop punk, lashings of sweet treats, a pinch of superheroes, bundles of laughter and a tinge of crankyness.
All wrapped up in a pretty package that resembles the Cookie Monster.
