Cate Blanchett, goddess of style

http://www.elleuk.com/life-and-culture/culture/articles/a39520/cate-blanchett-on-women-dressing-sexy/

I just love her so much.

“For me, the true icons of style are always those women who’ve been utterly themselves without apology, whose physical presence and their aesthetic is really integrated in a non self-conscious way into part of who they are, and women who know how they look is not all of who they are, but just an extension of that. It’s about women who feel free to wear what they want when they want and how they want to wear it. We all like looking sexy, but it doesn’t mean we want to f*ck you.

It’s an expression, it has literally nothing to do with men.
Women do fashion for themselves and possibly other women. Maybe.

It’s intrasexual competition, the men don’t even need to be present.
It’s like our gym selfies. Bad example but you really want to be superior to the other men, don’t you?

Do you think men can discern a pair of Jimmy Choos on sight?
Well, not the straight ones!

The ones who’d notice? …I don’t think attracting them is gonna work…

It’s the plot twist to our films because we all get it and you don’t. So much for airhead flicking through Vogue, huh? Visual language and symbology should technically be the male specialty. However, we care about nest-building. That’s why. Men pimp out cars and buy new tools. Same thing.

If men want us to get presumptive and judgy about your sartorial self-expressions then fine, but you wouldn’t like that Choo on the other foot. You complained about the joke about the shoes in SATC literally years ago.* Men are more touchy on the way they dress than the bulk of women, maybe because we’re used to hemline discussions from Kindergarten.

It’s catch 22, we can’t win.

If we dress nice, we like ourselves or are we vain or do we hate ourselves? The invitation to harassment thing is silly, and doesn’t take note of how predators work: they look for insecurity.

If we give up, we’re somehow less of a woman, depressed, crazy and proud of how we look without makeup (like a man). It’s the most ridiculous reasoning, the circuitous bitchiness that personalizes a choice we all must make, since we legally must wear clothes and shops only stock a certain price range and style type. It isn’t about you, it’s nothing to do with observers. Yet you are part of this system and sending signals. Why do ‘sexy men’ go topless? That’s how gay men like them, not women. Must we presume any man in a nice suit is a slut?

This film was a god-damn masterpiece.

Even nuns do fashion. It’s the feminine thing to do. We’re not the sex evolved to present, we’re the sex that selects. Read a bloody book before you prattle on being wrong about evolution.

*It was funny because men are generally clueless about the messages they give out (signals) and expect us not to pick up on them because they don’t care. Yes, we can tell you don’t care. However, you are the sex that should care so it’s funny. You should care because your power is only in asking us out. The rest is us. Insulting us and what we like and our gender role as selective is just ludicrously funny.

If you want to date someone with male psychology, you gay.

It isn’t about the cost of shoes, it’s the choice. If you have bad taste and decision-making, we don’t like you. Similarly, a man who actually takes another man’s style. We can’t stand those, they’re the worst. It’s like implants on a woman.

everything

EVERYTHING

EVERY-THING

it’s become meaningless

you wear make-up? ho

you don’t? conceited ho logic

you wear a skirt? ho

you wear shorts, like men in summer? somehow a ho

Not to mention that 90% of this stuff is vintage and the same men were complaining women should adopt those fashions again, no, taking care of your appearance whatsoever makes random strangers think they can make assumptions about your sex life.

hair spray? basic ho

no hair spray? natural look ho

It’s become synonymous with nubile woman.

Don’t let idiots use a slang term, they ruin it.

Spaghetti straps? oh, you better believe that’s a ho

Cardigans? who does that ho think she is, trying to look vintage? especially with a bling brooch

Pearls? ho

Choker? ho

No necklace? leaving your chest bare, typical ho

At this point, what are women supposed to wear where you don’t feel entitled to insult us?
There’s nothing, is there?

It’s meant to make women who haven’t totally given up feel insecure so the intimidated men can try to neg them.
As I’ve covered, that’s dumb because negging doesn’t work. At all.

Flats? ho

Heels? ho

Tan? ho

Natural skin? ho

It’s become a nonsense term.

The irony is that much of that stuff applies better to gym bros.

What’s a low-cut top to literally showing your man-tits?

Women shouldn’t be topless in public

Following on from-

True.

Neither should men.

A solid century ago you couldn’t flash either.

In fact, you couldn’t even show your waistcoat at dinner, this was risque.

These were male thots. Note the closed body language, they’re uncomfortable.

While you’re applying clothing standards, remember they apply to both sexes. That is what we call a social convention.

No mini-skirts? No shorts!
Fact: Edwardian women wore shorts too, before skirts shortened to that length later.
As in, women showed leg in public – after men started it.

If I can’t show small children my tits, why can you flash them yours?
And if it’s purely a fat issue, are flat-chested women exempt? Must shapely bosom-ed men take up a bra?
It isn’t only women’s breasts that are sexualised in the media, is it, Mr Pecs?
If anything, women have more cause to expose than men, since our breasts actually retain a second biological function and constricting them is bad for the nerves, increases the breast cancer risk and weakens the ligaments that prevent sagging. Logically, none of the anti-feminist stuff checks out this time.

Exception: the beach, your bathroom. That’s it. Not BBQs, camping, whatever else.

If you think women can’t break out the sexist humour to justify this stuff as well, you are wrong.

A man’s place is in the shed with all the other tools.

At this point, I am totally showing off.

Maybe Vox Day’s Time to Civilization concept would be best applied to tools and jewelry evolution?

I’d say coins but we literally invented numismatics. The Goddess Moneta’s temple was literally opposite the ancient mint. [Some sources claim in the Temple but it was all generally the same sacred space.]

Stop appropriating white culture

You look like you fell out of a student production of Shakespeare.
It’s like putting Tarzan in a three-piece, you look silly.

Asians don’t suit white clothes unless they’re vaguely slutty-looking because they retain their boyish figure. The fabric dwarfs them. Look at all the Asian sites selling our 20thC. clothing – high hemlines, tight on the chest, no sleeves, bedroom fabrics.
You can’t be white, please stop trying. The fake eyelids take the cake.

There aren’t many ladylike or high-class non-white fashions, are there?
And they can never pull them off, most insultingly.

Renaissance Italy and previously Medieval Europe. Victorian buttons.

Rococo gilding, NW European. Gold ball, bead and stud jewelry, ancient European.

Celtic tribal knots and Arthurian coronets. Yes, stealing regalia. Find me an historical non-white Princess monarchy, Princess culture is a white invention, and a key stock character in our fairytales. Does Africa have fairytales, which are traditionally set in dense forests?
The metallurgy on the right is distinctively European and looks ancient Briton, which included examples of twisted silver work.

None of these people are original.
In artistic circles, that’s theft.
Traditionally, only conquerors wore the tokens of their defeated, replaced enemy. To mock them.

Just because SJWs are too dead above the neck to beauty to study fashion history doesn’t mean the rest of the world is fooled. Two of these photos came out in the past week.
The double standards of these people make me sick.
While you’re at it, give us back the antibiotics and die of leprosy.

Update: 

Some examples of proof, you can look up for yourself as well. In many cases, these things look directly lifted.





We had these before you had a culture.
Some respect is in order, if you’re going to steal our stuff and then cry White Supremacy for liking our own, advanced metallurgy.

Above: This is ancient Irish, not Egyptian.


Celtic tribal torc.

Shield detail, tribal warrior motif from the 1st century BC.
While you’re crying about the Maori.





Think very carefully before you segregate textiles too, because Europe invented most of them due to the constant weather changes and the manufacturing standard is pure British Industrial Revolution.

How did I forget to share this?

Some would ask, why would one want to do this? Why deliberately go poking around among nasty, disreputable ideas? Why look under rocks?”

rationale for this entire blog

I guess moral relativism just admits they switch out the labels like colour swatches.

I guess their complaints about populism are realizing they’re out of style.

Again, status signalling is really all about Freudian signifiers.
The Pietism of virtue signalling gets to me.
