simpler and happier times...

and one idea thats been floating around my little plastic head is that one of my subconcious drives for the life a doll is a need to get out of the modern world; out of the rat race into simpler and much prettier times. where black powersuits didn't need to be worn daily in a cut throat dog eat dog grind.

sort of supporting this is egl fashion from high tech japan, and from this fashion spread i think a similiar theme is appearing?

or am i just reading too much into the tea leaves?

I think the one thing about US fashion that keeps EGL from taking off here like it did in Japan and like where subtle versions of it are showing up in Europe is that in the States a side effect of feminist culture is that women generally want to "have their cake and eat it too".

Meaning? They'd *like* to have a look, but only if it is *never* an inconvenience for them, the really high-maintenance or high-encumberance side to EGL (mainly the corsets and petticoating, but oddly enough not the high heels) just *won't stick*.

Having said that...maybe, *maybe* there is a shot at a simplified, modern Romantic doll-look like what the pics show. Victorian style tops, dollish makeup, maybe a bit of the hair or hats...and maybe some tights, nylons, or girdling to get that waist going.

Think I am just guessing here? I am a little, but check out the current issue of what seems to be the newest ladies vanity magazine, "Just for Me", where the cover pic of Sarah Jessica Parker has a look *very much* in this vein, not just with the top, but with being able to *see hints of a control garment under the top*. ;)

What is it I've heard people say about the good old days--they weren't all that good? One hundred years ago might be nice to visit just to take in the fashions, but hell if I'd want to live there. It's easy to romantisize the past, because we have A/C and cars and the Internet and cable and computes and food pretty much when we want it . . . and they had none of that. I'll think I'll stay here and run up my MasterCard.

Can I just say what a comfort to uncover somebody who actually knows what they are talking about on the web.
You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
A lot more people ought to check this out and understand this side of the story.
I was surprised that you aren't more popular given that you surely have the gift.
