Day 194 - Saturday 12th July

Rock and Roll - Far beyond simply a musical style, rock and roll influenced lifestyles, fashion, attitudes, and language.

Are you influenced by fashion, music or even what you see and read in the news?

Aren’t we all influenced by fashion and music? I guess fashions are made fashionable by music and famous people and people in the public eye. If you see people wearing a certain fashion a lot, it tends to grow on you and then on your next shopping trip, you are likely to buy it.
I tend to be a follower of main stream fashion, but would love to have the flair for wearing my own fashion. Some people can wear clothes that aren’t in vogue at all but how they assemble their outfits, gives them a chic of their own. I have always admired people who can do this.
I would love to have been around in the 50’s when Rock and Roll took off as I love the outfits that they wore then - those great big netted skirts and little tight tops and little bobby socks and pumps.
I always think of Grease when I think of these outfits. I loved the music and dancing of those days and would have loved to go to a dance all dolled up and then hit the dance floor and wow the other dancers like Sandy and Danny.
Only trouble is I can’t dance and I am not sure that those skirts would have suit my body shape. Oh well a girl can dream!!!
