"TOO MUCH GOOD TASTE IS BORING!"


“Too much good taste is boring!”
Diana Vreeland (Editor-in-Chief, Vogue 1963-1971)


Do you agree with Diana Vreeland?
Or is there not enough good taste in fashion and design?
In other words, some bad taste? Very bad taste? Do let me know!

and Versace designs. Below some race goers at the
UK Grand National, 2010)
What are your views about taste? Each to his own? Do let me know!
Happy Six Word Saturday! Other great posts @ Show My Face. Have a great weekend!
And see you again for Ruby Tuesday!
Mwah!
XOXO LOLA:)

Oh my..... there IS NOT enough good taste in this world!! We see fashion shows with ugly clothes,walk down the street and ask yourself.."did that person look in the mirror before they left the house?"... obviously NO. I think taste is unique,everyone has there own.. but common sense is needed.. I often wonder.."Where is Stacy and Clint when you need them?"

Sometimes all you can do is shake your head and think, "Wow..."

Amanda G said...

It's all a matter of opinion and in this case...I agree with that opinion. But if you have the ability and desire to be over-the-top (my opinion, of course) then why not!

Caty said...

there is some really bad taste in fashion! but some really good. I think we can keep it reasonable without being boring. But I do love that Marilyn monroe/james dean robe!!
thanks for commenting on my blog! Happy Saturday!

Caty said...

oops it's not a robe, but a dress!

Joanie M said...

I think a lot of people dress outlandishly just for the attention.

Linda said...

Some people are just over the top!

I'm more conservative in most things.

Thanks for the nice comments this morning on my post Lola.

The Pink meringue would like she had a bit more taste if she had a glass of champers in her hand rather than a pint!

Bing (PinkLady) said...

i can see what that means... it gets too monotonous... or maybe too loud... too much of anything can really get boring. :)

thanks for leaving a comment on my post. happy sunday!

Heavenly Housewife said...

Yes, too much good taste is boring, but would you rather be boring or a laughingstock? LOL
*kisses* HH

Melissa B. said...

I think it must be "to each his own." Otherwise, how could I get away with the blue jeans & sweats look?

Michelle said...

Hahaha.....yes I would have to be safe to say to each his own! Hmmm...maybe there isn't good taste or bad...just different? This is CERTAINLY different! Great post Lola and Nora. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
