Thought for the day

It's almost as stupid to let your clothes betray that you know you are ugly as to have them proclaim you are beautiful. Edith Wharton

Fashion and the Israeli woman: The Bare Necessities
In Israel, fashion is not about dressing up but dressing down. It's not about looking good, but about looking the same for a lifetime. The challenge here is, "who says I can't raid my 16 year old daughter's wardrobe and get away with it?"
The trouble is, they can't.
This attitude why Israeli women insist on wearing crop tops and low waisted jeans long after they've gone out of fashion - and regardless of how old or chubby they are. And what's worse, you can see them like this at social events and weddings as well.
