Behind The Times!

"Fashion is always of the time in which you live. It is not something standing alone. But the grand problem, the most important problem, is to rejeuvenate women. To make women look young. Then their outlook changes. They feel more joyous."~Coco Chanel~
Is this photo joyous or what? Walking thru a grand flea market recently, Judy and I came across this more than colorful store. Yikes, flea markets have come a long way, I thought! Judy suggested I take a photo for my blog, there was no twisting my arm on this one! 
Neither of us were quite sure where one would wear such attire? My friend being of an adventurous nature decided to interview the owner! 
The white dress with the red trim is actually a wedding dress. "The remaining could be worn to proms and social events," the owner said. Upon further investigation I noticed that not one was made out of flannel or had the proper coverage for my liking! Call me old and a little old fashioned but I also think that fashion should be comfortable as well. Look at that mannequin on the bottom right...Holy guacamole!
There is something out there for everyone, I guess. Feeling a little more rejuvenated, joyous and fashion educated for having visited this colorful place, we moved along. A store for the younger fashion savvy generation for sure!
Ahhh... the flea market a wonderful place to find the unexpected, overloading the unsuspecting senses!

Pin It!

Ooohhh, what a great selection of fancy dresses. Now that I've lost nearly 40 lbs. I've been wearing more dresses lately and feeling very feminine. I used to HATE wearing dresses and going to parties but not anymore. :)

I guess I never go anywhere to dress THAT fancy. :))

That purple number in the foreground is quite something! You never know what you will find at a flea market, which I guess is part of the fun.
