There are a few theories flailing around, none of them terribly scientific, nonetheless, everyone can agree: about the role of fashion in a dreary economy. Here's the first one, when things are bleak, women tend to wear more black, because it is more muted hue and appropriately "funereal". It is also easy - and in difficult situations, that matters. Or for me it is slimming. Am i right, or am i right? Then there's the opposite notion: dress in white; it will flatter you, light up your face and make you feel virtuous. And the crayola concept (my favorite) is as follows: women who dress in bright colors lift not only their own spirits but those of the people around them. But this one i find very dangerous at the same time. It can turn heads for all the wrong reasons. Another theory is that fashion is the last thing that should be on the minds of thinking women. Yeah Riiiight!
And last but not the least, when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping. Well honestly and personally, when I look good, I feel good, I do good. When i feel a little down I'd like to buy myself something that will cheer me up. Of course I don't want to embrace this idea a hundred percent, but I do believe that feasting your eyes on pretty things when all around you seems so unattractive can be a short-term and effective healing, like say, listening to a good music, watching a feel-good-happy-ending-movie, reading a romance-they-live-happily-ever-after-book, or enjoying a good meal with your friends. The activity may not last for long, but it certainly does the job.
