The new youth movement in plastic fashions represented a complete rejection of anything even remotely connected with the established designers and their bizarre ideas. Up to then women had been either dangerously overladen or daringly understitched, the latter working out just fine on the beaches of the Riviera, but a woman liked to decide when she got all that attention. Not to mention the expense involved for the privilege of wearing the most curious connections of cloth ever conceived since dressing in public became an "in" thing. The polyethylene-based style was chic, modern, and easy to clean, as well as easy to obtain. You just went to a designer boutique, bought a blouse or a skirt, returned it a day later, and kept the bag it came in, cutting and trimming as desired. The repercussions unraveled the old-school world of fashion overnight, ripping it to the shreds of an imitation Levi's washed at a cheap laundromat. A few days later Armani, Gucci, Lagerfeld, and all the rest were seen working as bag packers at the supermarket.

That girl can really fill out a sack. I have to admit, a Veramoda striped bag does make a pretty snazzy miniskirt on her -- this is likely the first time that I've ever got an erection from plasticware. (plasticwear?)

The name of the movie escapes me, but there was a film about 20 years ago where this businessman tears the seat of his pants accidentally, and he sticks a plastic bag down his pants to not 'hang out'. People see him and think it's a new fashion, so suddenly designers start making pants with plastic panels in back.

Thank you, Robyn. Maybe I'll buy myself a cookie on the way home.
