Couture fashion is irrelevant. What?!

"Couture has become completely irrelevant. Couture isn’t necessary, even to promote the brand. Customers are smart. They know that a $10,000 wedding dress will look as beautiful as a $1 million wedding dress. Maybe it will not be finished the same way inside, but who will know?"

-Designer Oscar de la Renta to the Wall Street Journal on his opinion of couture.

YESSSS! Okay, honestly, I don't know anyone who can afford $10,000 on a wedding dress...but the point of this quote is people don't have to pay designer prices to get designer looks, which makes me super happy! Thanks to places like Forever 21, Target, and online markets, high fashion is affordable to every day buyers. Plus, I notice the above quote comes from a couture designer. *gasp*

So for my friends I hear saying, "I can't afford fashion".... well, there's probably an alternative somewhere waiting in the wings. Best of luck and as always...

p.s. I have NOT forgotten about the body types styling and hair styles you all have requested. It's still a thought in my mind. I'm waiting until I have the proper time to devote to something like this. Perhaps summer. <3
