CULT OF THE PAPER BAG



Together with every purchase comes paper bag (author avoids talking about online shopping, because we all do it and all love it). Together with a paper bag comes brand's name/logo printed on it. And according to what I've seen, together with that comes some kind of weird power and it makes people act strange.

This is all just based on my experience. Some people almost worship this piece of cellulose, that you get in a boutique, making it almost as valuable as items sold inside. How many times have you sen a woman carrying paper bag almost like a designer's piece? Just imagine entering the tube and there are two women - one with Tommy Hilfiger's paper bag, other one with Burberry's and these ripping, heavily destroyed bags, carry inside all of their precious belongings. One is taking a wallet out of it, second one is looking for a bottle of water and takes out her tiny cardigan and a brush. Almost like a cheap version of a designer handbag. True story, sis.

What's the whole idea behind this? Is it a reminiscence of the better times, when they were able to shop for a certain designer? Is it way of showing off in a weird way and saying: Hey, I have enough money on my account to shop at (enter favorite brand's/designer's name)!? While all the jealous people have no clue, that you carry all your necessary belongings inside. But why can't you just wear a piece that you got there - even if it's a scarf, and pair this with an ordinary high-street brand bag? If the case is desperate will to be an advertising space, just buy a piece with a hug logo crafted on it. Oh, wait - maybe that's it - maybe I have no clue that there is a secret scene of ladies carrying these paper bags for money? Maybe brands pay them, so they can promote designer everywhere they go. That would be a truly unique approach to advertising. Not mentioning that paper bags are quite powerful anyway - recently, my friend had had started feeling like an outsider, when she was one of the very few people, not carrying a shopping bag and that's when she felt a huge urge to step into one of the boutiques and spend some money. But sanity won - no impulsive shopping for clothes.

To be honest - it's probably the first case - Hey look, hey look, back in the days I was able to shop there. Everyone had better times of their lives, but not everyone is yelling it aloud to the whole world.

And that's how I should probably smoothly move to very intriguing subject - logos. But it's too interesting, so I am going to write another boring post about it. Fashion moaning.

Maybe I'm just wrong and it's a slowly growing trend? Maybe in some times we will drop our favorite bags to replace them with paper bags from our favorite brands. Just don't forget one thing - homeless people are the pioneers of this trend. And couple of others actually.

ON SUNDAYS WE WEAR PAJAMAS

And we basically don't give a shit. But that's about every day.
This post is here to remind you, that a week ago we were melting in the sun and Summer is here, but it's hiding behind rain and warmer clothes right now.

SUMMER DENIM

It's been a long time, huh? Not much has changed - maybe only the fact, that I welcomed elder German lady sliders into my shoes collection - Hello to my double Birkenstock look-alikes. Coming together with simple and comfortable pieces, because I probably don't care enough and as I said thousand times before - comfort is over everything. That's why I can't be bothered to wear high-heels again. Granny sliders for life. Or for Summer at least.

CHANGES

It's high time to change something - 666 CHAMBERS is officially gone and it's time to grow up... Just kidding - I'm probably gonna stay kid for life. Number of the beast is gone, so FOREVER AND NEVER EVER is here to replace it.

Why such a weird, confusing name with so many Rs? (Not mentioning the first one - that I like to complicate things). Reason is simple - I believe that this is how our relationship with many things looks like - in this particular case - with clothes. Last summer, when you bought that pair of high heels for quite a lot $$$, you almost carved your initials together with shoes' model name in the closest tree. And after some time you've realized Meh, maybe I don't like them that much... and now they're waiting for you, to admit that it wasn't love for life and that you want to sell them on eBay, at the bottom of the closet. Sounds a little bit familiar? I'm not saying that it's like this with all the clothes, because everyone has pieces, that he would never ever trade for something else and they are usually perfect basics, worn so many times, that holes in them are a common thing.
I can interpret (hate this word - thank you, school) the new name the other way around - there are/were certain items, that you would NEVER EVER put in your closet and now - surprise, surprise - there they are and even might have become your favorite and that's what I've realized at some point. It's just stupid to be narrow-minded and it applies to every field in life, because you will get so much more of it, if you gonna open your mind a little. (End of motivating blah-blahs.) The only thing that doesn't change is how I feel about fur - no no for life.  So ta-dah that's the whole philosophy behind the new name or maybe there's actually no philosophy - it just sounds cool with all these Rs. Anyway, I hope that you still will be here with me, following my not important things to say about personal style, fashion and all that crap. Or you'll be gone forever, never ever visiting me again. Peace.
