Viv Westwood thinks people look ugly in their clothes.

    They dress like clones. Only women in their 70s look good, she says. Would you be seen out in the things she designs? To me she looks like a freak. And I always suspect she's allergic to soap and water.

    Can you still buy soap? I mean a proper bar of soap, rather than the liquid stuff?

    Viv Westwood thinks people look ugly in their clothes.
    Should read: Viv Westwood surely must know that people look ugly in her clothes.
    Wasn't the blue dress below by her?

    Of course you can still buy blocks of soap!!! Dont you see them when you are buying your liquid soap? Not trying to be arsey but I was really puzzled by the question.[​IMG]
  8. I think she is right in that people do dress like clones.
    On a visit to a city, I noticed that hair styles, hair colour, tops, bottoms, jackets, jewellery, footwear all conformed to a sort of uniform including colour ways.
    The young middle aged seemed to go for brighter colours.
    Shops seem to sell the same things.
    It suits me because I dont like standing out.
    I think her design ideas - on the cat walk are invariably unwearable but I think she is a leader in direction that is followed.by other designers. They may tone it down, make the styles, cuts wearable but waists may be nipped, collars big, and fabrics heavy or light depending on the direction she and the other leaders, set.

    I have to confess that shopping isn't something I take an enormous interest in. I shop, of course, but only for the things my wife has put on the list, which may include liquid soap, as such is her preference. It seems to be the preference in other homes I go to as well.
    Back in the midst of time, I worked with an older man who came from the waste not, want not generation. When a bar of soap was getting worn out, he would join it onto a new bar by wetting them both and pressing them together, thus forming a bar of soap that never ran out.
  10. All these girls wearing tight leggings without skirts. Panty-lines on show or camel-toes. Urgh. Many are little more than tights either. Or wearing cut-off shorts and tights in freezing weather in the hope of seeming fashionable.
    It is undesirable and frankly ugly.
    Nothing worse than fat legs in tight leggings. Vomit inducing.
  11. Let it all out, brambo...

    As for Viv Westwood, I really like her structuring. I think her clothes have become more wearable these days.
  12. As a pupil at school said before the hols.
    "Sometimes I feel like a paedo, when I see what they wear on a night out and all I can think of is read my lips..."
    Coming from an 18yo about Y10 girls its worrying.
  13. Thanks for sharing.

    When we were young we had a mug full of ends of soap all squashed down together. I still use bars of soap. I have a whole drawer full. I love Roger et Gallet particularly Vetiver and Extra Vieille and I love Crabtree and Evelyn's Jojoba. Such a treat. I love opening the drawer as I go by sometimes and smelling them all.
  15. I'm a soap-buyer too - I don't like the dispensers.
    I love L'Occitane, but I don't often buy that for myself. Pears is the one I usually get.

    I might look bad in my clothes but I look a darned sight worse without them.
