Where Has All The Fashion Gone?
Went to a fabulous restaurant recently. Don’t indulge in expensive French restaurants very often, so it was definitely a special event. For me, the preparation leading up to such a culinary adventure is as much fun as the dinner itself. Deciding what to wear, putting on my makeup, doing my hair…it’s all great good fun. And the result…I felt beautiful. But when I arrived at this gorgeous restaurant, where I was prepared to spend $100 for dinner, what do I see? Tables of people dressed as if they were going to the grocery store. The best dressed looked as if they had just come from a long, hard day at the office. No one looked like they had bothered to do anything special to prepare to enjoy this wonderful experience. Why is that? Is this common only in the LA area where everything has become completely casual? Why don’t people get dressed up any more? Where are people wearing all the beautiful clothes they buy? Every day I sell beautiful clothing to lovely women…but when I go to the theater to out to dinner I don’t see anyone wearing the kinds of things I sell or the kinds of things women buy from me. I am baffled. Getting dressed up is fun, it is an important part of the entire experience.
