About clothes and men: an interview with a psychologist on a topic I don't write about
At the end of December, I got the idea to talk to someone really competent about a topic that, whether you like it or not, POPs up in every second…

Style: large waves and small bursts

Fashion that is terrifying

Miss world, Miss Universe… what beauty contests are not invented by their organizers in search of the most beautiful woman in the world! For us, the inhabitants of the civilized world, the canons of beauty and fashion trends seem so obvious that when we see the first beauty of a wild tribe, detached from this very civilization, we can laugh, be surprised, or even fall into absolute stupor. Sometimes fashion and beauty are so tightly bound for us that it is difficult to accept with our minds and hearts that in some corner of the world the concept of female attractiveness differs significantly from ours.

fashion that terrifies from people to people, from race to race, there are different understandings and ideals of beauty and fashion. Although it is more appropriate to talk about beauty than about fashion. It is very doubtful that the Maori, for example, even know what fashion, trend, model appearance, style, etc. is.

About clothes and men: an interview with a psychologist on a topic I don’t write about

At the end of December, I got the idea to talk to someone really competent about a topic that, whether you like it or not, POPs up in every second (in fact, every first) discussion about fashion. In my blog, as you know, I don’t raise the topic of what the opposite sex likes (or doesn’t like). On the comment “what will men think?!”I try not to answer or respond in a lapidary way (although it doesn’t always work, so I take out an imaginary checker and start waving it around, telling them that there are too many opportunities in the XXI century to waste energy on an imaginary beauty contest in front of imaginary men).

I am genuinely outraged by articles (and even books!) about how to dress to please men. A greater concentration of nonsense on a paragraph of text can not be found, perhaps, even in the books of Vadim Zeland. Outraged questions from interviewers, who do not care whether the audience of their publication will open a new door, a new opportunity in life, after reading the thoughts of professionals, or will be left to suffer and rush around in a tight cage of “folk wisdom” and “so it is accepted”.

Spring trends: what in the white world can not be at all

It’s hard to write about something that isn’t there. Imagine the article “how to collect a bouquet of cornflowers in Antarctica”. Or “how civil society in Russia defends electoral rights”. Or “Entrepreneurs in the era of the Soviet Union”. No, if you really want words and even meanings, you can choose. Describe individual manifestations that fit very roughly with the terms specified in the title. Even, probably, to draw some conclusions. The reader should not lose sight of the main thing: in Antarctica, it is theoretically possible to collect a bouquet, but rather from mosses and lichens, in Russia, society is extremely reluctant and defends something in small numbers, there were no entrepreneurs in the period between NEP and Perestroika, there were individuals whose thirst for money or adventure led to the implementation of criminal income schemes. Branded long opening sentence is written, cheers. Continue reading
