Close the Museums Wearable Art!
We often think of the British as just like us but what I saw at the royal wedding was anything like us! The Prince's cousins were hot messes. How in the world can these girls think that those albatrosses on their heads are attractive? How?
While these were bad the cousins weren't the only ones, there were many others who left me wondering where their minds were. Evident it is hip to destroy a beautiful outfit with arbitrary objects on your head. Then I began to think about our own culture and the things we do.
I really can't think of anything as ridiculous as wearing those odd head ornaments in our culture in very formal situations. We do have the lunacy at football games. But that's not like a wedding or the opera, American girls dress nicely (unless they are from New Jersey and some of their hairstyles could rival the British hats) at formal events.
I would really love to know what we do that seems so over the top to the Brits.
I have to admit that I would wear the blue hair before you would ever catch me in such a silly hat! What would you do?
Enough for now...
