All that glitters is not gold by my interpretation means something which appears to be of importance or value but is in all honesty, a farce or more colloquially put a turd.
There are so many fashion trends that are turds.
As in big fat steaming turds.
One such turd came into service recently, well fairly recently is the Metallic trend.
which is flitting to discuss going with the whole glitter and gold theme.
Really, what are designers thinking?
That we are all size zero models with no cellulite perfect bums and legs that go on for days?
I think not? But evidently they do. Then to boot these wonderful metallic pants and tops go up to sizes where obviously such wearers will not be flattered.
Yet it is drilled home that this is what is great and cool and rad and "in".
As per usual the masses do what masses do best and consume the turds.
Locally i blame Yo-landi Visser for the metallic pants that sprung from and the recent ZEF culture phenomenon that was born from the extremely clever Max Normal's rap crew/band/whateveryouwanttocallit : Die Antwoord. Its positively ironic, they rap about the stupidest most common things that literally take the piss out of their audiences and there the audiences are looking up at them singing along (insulting themselves) staring and mimicking adoringly. So tacky turns "tasteful" and
gold pants, not so much.
can you think of any other turds?
