    Do they really think we would wear this??

    Fashion designer's in Paris must be from another planet. I don't think I have ever seen anyone......famous or otherwise wearing these outfits.

    Can you just see us all shopping at the LQS in some of these clothes........LOL

    The models don't even look happy to be wearing them. Some of the outfits would be good for the rain and snow season.

    Fashion shows are a joke. They are just to get designers a famous name. Average people don't wear these Creations for fame styles.

    I have to agree with Rose Marie. I have to say that the average person wouldn't be caught dead wearing some of the "fashion" clothes, even IF they could AFFORD to.

    I always wondered what the heck was going thru those peoples heads?!?!? Always crazy looking designs, no one would b caught dead wearing. why make these items if no one will wear it???. Is there something going on there that we are not privy to? What crazy drugs do these 'designers' take. I don't even think the eccentric wear these fashions.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Every time I see a designer's way out runway creations, I think of the episode on I Love Lucy, when the group went to Paris, and the girls wanted designer dresses. Ricky and Fred took feedbags from horses on the street, had a tailor make dresses out of burlap, put the dresses in designer boxes for Lucy and Ethel, and they strutted down the street thinking they had the latest fashion! Still laugh at that one!

    I can't even figure out why we still have people designing clothes. As far as I'm concerned, the jeans and t-shirt (or sweatshirt) were perfected years ago. No changes needed.

    You mean you all don't wear clothes like that every day? Would love to have the money that some of them cost so that I could buy fabric. Guess I will keep wearing my jeans and shorts.

    Absolutely, I wear that stuff all the time in my rural town out in the middle of nowhere - the only thing I even recognized and liked was a short black leather jacket - the rest of it is crazy - I don't get it.

    It would be much cheaper to just go naked.
    Never let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I was at the last quilt show in Chicago years ago, and at the same convention center was a jewelry show. It was such a hoot to see the different way of dressing between the quilters and the jewelry folk. Quilters were in jeans, walking shoes, and comfortable shirts. The jewelry ladies were in high heels, tight, short dresses and coiffed hair. Guess who I would rather be?! Haha!

    Last night on the Oscars I saw some pretty bazaar dresses. I would not wear most of them if they GAVE them to me, and they pay BIG BUCKS for them..... and they are so ugly.....
