Chinese fashion- Hosiery Elastic for All to See

5 09 2009

Let’s talk for a minute about Chinese fashion vs. American fashion. The “it’s okay to show the tops of your hosiery” phenomenon has been the hardest thing for me to adjust to. I’m so used to this being the ultimate fashion faux pas, no matter the woman’s age or situation. I have to admit, however, that these Chinese ladies have sacrificed fashion rules for a much higher calling. They have said ‘eff off’ to blisters and that is . We see all Chinese women, young and old, wearing these little ankle highs proudly with their fancy and not-so fancy footwear. When I pointed this out to Jeremiah today on the bus he said he had never noticed… NEVER NOTICED!!! Anyway, suffice it to say, this may be a trend I try to bring back with me. I love the idea of being able to wear shoes without bloodying the heels.
