Recurrent Beauty

There are those who state that fashion is recurrent, that there is no inspiration around to be seen, and we are therefore forced to drink from past springs of ideas. This woman though, who looks at us with post-war eyes and platform shoes speaks of the beauty in those heights, and of the wonder in the proportions derived from the flounces on her sleeves and her shoulder pads. If it suits us, it will always be recurrent and will return over and over again; in disguise, on tiptoes or simply reborn to us.
Hay quien se queja de que la moda es recurrente, de que ya no hay inspiración y por eso hay que beber de las antiguas fuentes. Pero esta mujer que nos mira con ojos de posguerra y zapatos de plataforma; nos habla de belleza en la altura, en las proporciones que derivan de los rizos de sus mangas y de sus hombreras. Y si nos favorece, será recurrente y volverá una y mil veces: solapada, a hurtadillas, haciéndose la nueva.

el tema hombreras es bastante controvertido para mi... siempre digo q no me gustan, pero me encantan las manguitas rizadas, de globito o con volantito... asiq no me gustan las hombreras pero si las mangas historiadas... si es q esto de la moda...
mUUUacks!

TOdo vuelve, te imaginas que volvieran los sombreros para usarlos a diario, así con tocados y tan elegantes.
En el pasado las mujeres eran más elegantes, fotos como las que nos has enseñado son las que me inspiran, será xq mi abuelita tenía bastantes de los años 20 30 40 50, esas reliquias seguro a día de hoy no existiran, solo en mis recuerdos de niña!!! Tu sabes si en Madrid puedo encontrar revistas vintage??

Fashion is most definitely recurrent, but that's no bad thing. If something looks good, why not continue to wear it. I love your DIYs. X

What you say about fashion is really true. As you might know I work in a deparment store. We have a bracelet there which you would probably like: It's a spider who's legs go around your wrist. It's silver and the body of the spider is made of a black stone. It's really elegant and still nourishes the lust for wearing spiders and inspects :) I'll try to remember taking a picture for you.

The images from the 1940's look surprisingly modern, don't they. But I really love your DIY flower and bee brooch. How fun! I want to make myself one.
