51. If there was one country or culture or era that you had to live in, fashion-wise, what would it be?
1970s. It's the long hair, bell-bottoms, lace, fringe, and leather jackets for me!
I'm happy with current times.
israel. or usa.
I don't know. I would love to wear corsets and nicely tailored dresses from time to time, but in other areas of life... I pretty much prefer the present.
I really liked the new look, although my torso is too short for it to look good on me.
medieval europe. leggings, tunics, those pointy shoes and silly hats...absolutely ideal.
actually, i take that back. 1960s new york.
Right now is good because I still have access to archives of how people in different eras and cultures dress. I don't need everyone around me to be doing the same thing. Sometimes I think it would be nice to live in the early or mid 20th Century when people dressed more formally outside of the house. But there was more conformity too I think, so it might not be as interesting.
I would be a flapper in the 1920s. No question.
Probably the early 90s. I know many ultra-stylish people like Vogue's Suzy Menkes hate grunge. To me, grunge feels like home. I was raised in the rural Pacific Northwest, close to Kurt Cobain's home town. Grunge is a way of life here--the climate is hard, the economy is hard, and people are tough. My friend's Dad danced at her wedding in the same red flannel he wore to work as a commercial fisherman.
In addition to gorgeous grunge, the early 90s brought us amazing Riotgrrl style and Kinderwhore.
There are so many, I can't really choose. I have to be practical though, and admit that living in a time when women had to wear tight corsets would quickly prove intolerable no matter how good I looked.
Maybe the second half of the 19th century but in wealthier classes, Maybe the early 60ies of the 20th century. I like that Fashion reflects the optimism of that era.
maybe before we wore clothes to see how that would effect me and my self esteem but really now is amazing because we can wear (most) any thing we like
