On the way to work today I was thinking about living in Vancouver, and how there are only 2 places in the world where the time zone is further behind then here (Anchorage Alaska & Honolulu Hawaii). I mean in Australia they are almost 1 day ahead!! This fact helps me make sense of the reasons that we are sometimes behind in fashion here in Canada. My first glimpse of this was when I went to Scotland at age 15. There were peace signs and hippie flowers on the dresses, Spice Girls (who I had not yet heard of) on the radio and cool platform sneakers in bright colors! I had never seen or heard anything like this so of course brought home some funky clothes and a mix cd of popular songs.
6 months after I got back, the Spice Girls started playing on Canadian Radio and 6 months more, the funky clothes were everywhere. That’s when I understood. It’s probably why I am still obsessing over a last seasons look like the bow headscarf. It’s geography! 😉
