EP 60 – White After Labor Day

Did you grow up with fashion rules? Belt and shoes must match? Hand bags and shoes must match? Or every single bit of your outfit had to match the exact shade of blue? My moms only semi rule was (loosely translated into English) “Get Chu-ching.” Chu-ching is like getting prettied up. (Hi mom if you are reading this!)

This week’s episode is all about the old fashion rule “No White After Labor Day.” I love fashion history and arbitrary fashion rules. So this week’s episode is a little bit of US history, fashion history, and a lesson on style mindset.

Remember, you always get to decide whether or not to follow a fashion rule. But you must always remember, they are made up. A human or group of humans got together to make a rule about piles of fabric that are attached to other piles of fabric. You always get to decide whether you want to follow that rule, trend, and/or style. You get to decide whether you want to “break the rules.” You always have a choice. If you decide to play along, check your reasons. Are you trying to keep up with the insta-Joneses? Or do you simply wish to keep your white shoes clean? (Tee-hee)

Stay tuned as we discuss:
1. The history of the No White After Labor Day Rule
2. The mythos surrounding the history of the rule
3. You always get to choose whether to follow or break style rules.
