Forty Fads I’d Like To See Again
Wow! As I mentioned in my last post, vogue.com has published their own list fads that they expect to take off in the upcoming year. I’m excited that the mother of all fashion magazines has predicted “The Return of the Ball Gown” as a major trend in 2014 because the Auntie of all fashion blogs has been attempting to get more people to appreciate gowns since 2009. That’s when I came up with Wear a Gown to Work Day as a way to bring glamour and style into the humdrum lives of the vulgus.
Anyway, after an exciting start to the event where RuPaul graciously offered to act as the official spokesperson, WAGTWD had been struggling to gain relevance because the world was just not ready for a holiday devoted to something other than overeating. But now that vogue.com is ready to bring gowns back into style (like they did with shoes a few years ago), this could be the kick in the ass WAGTWD needs to really get going again.
