Trendy Granny

March 13, 2008

Dear nobody (because Fashion is all, everything, and everybody… except myself, and Cayce of course: You already understood the *Posh Pride* team IS Fashion, and not the contrary),

I don’t remember when, but I know Cayce and I wasted our precious time in a shoes’ store some days ago… I won’t write the brand of this store in this blog (you all have to make your own mistakes. We’re here to give you some tricks, not to take your hand especially after a perfect french manicure) but just know it is a short name with no “i” inside, and lot’s of good reasons to be avoided. Anyway, we were trying to keep control in front of these “enough to make you sick” shoes, accompanied by a friend of Cayce (I forgot his name), when she told me these unforgiven words in IM : “Shall I tell you he told you’re dressed like his granny? lol”… I have too much self-respect to react in a violent way… But I IMMEDIATELY knew that Cayce was expressing her own thoughts through this awful sentence pretending this was her friend’s opinion : this was just a little weak revenge after my wise judgement about her pink “dress” (as you read it in the last post)…

It doesn’t matter ! I admit I was looking like my own old grandaunt in a certain way. But when you’re as posh as I am, and proud to be, you know the spectrum of Fashion scans a wide field of trends. What you call “oldfashioned”, I call it “vintage”, and this makes all the difference between you and me, between a queen of the look, and a “try again” fellow. That’s why I decided to share some of my secrets with you, and write a post for all trendy grannies and posh young avatars who appreciate retro fashions… And the best examples of pure retro fashions in Second Life are sold in “GRANDMA!” stores : Since I’m in love with this almost unwearable brand, I created all the following outfits starting with clothes from there, then I simply enhanced them thanks to my incomparable fashion eyes… Read, look, and learn.

Here is the outfit which gave rise to Cayce’s bad comments : If all grannies dressed like this, women under thirty years should not trust their boyfriends anymore… A perfect casual outfit for your gossiping sessions with the Queen Elizabeth.
