KK Chat -- 11 June 2017 Part 2
« on: June 11, 2017, 07:36:13 pm »
Jun 11 20:22:46 <Alkari>   Those two girls - Beatrice and Eugenie - ... *sigh*
Jun 11 20:23:04 <Laurna>   I learned to love fascinators during the wedding.
Jun 11 20:23:05 <Shiral>   That was a very weird hat--weird style, weird color....what was she THINKING?
Jun 11 20:23:15 <Eyikl>   Like with the Kentucky Derby.
Jun 11 20:23:17 <Evie>   Teletubbies?
Jun 11 20:23:20 <Alkari>   She looked like a Teletubbie
Jun 11 20:23:20 <DesertRose>   LOL
Jun 11 20:23:30 <Alkari>   Jinx, Evie
Jun 11 20:23:37 *   Jemler has quit (Quit: )
Jun 11 20:23:50 <DesertRose>   At least with the Kentucky Derby, you can blame the weird hats on too many mint juleps.
Jun 11 20:23:51 <Evie>   I wondered if she could pick up radio waves with that thing
Jun 11 20:24:04 <Shiral>   I remember seeing Charles and Diana's wedding back in 1981. I managed to buy a booklet about it at the time. I still have it.
Jun 11 20:24:22 <Evie>   Yes, I watched that one also
Jun 11 20:24:35 <DesertRose>   I remember that too, Shiral, although I was pretty little.  My mom still thinks Diana's dress was over the top.
Jun 11 20:24:38 <Shiral>   Great wedding, problematical marriage
Jun 11 20:24:40 <DesertRose>   Just entirely too much fabric.
Jun 11 20:24:41 <Evie>   And if Harry's is televised, I'm sure I'll watch that also
Jun 11 20:24:48 <Alkari>   when clearing out Mum's stuff, we found things from the Queen's wedding, and even before.  Lots of stuff from 1930s and 40s
Jun 11 20:25:08 <Evie>   wow!
Jun 11 20:25:13 <Alkari>   SO we have collected all the 'royalty' stuff and will send to auction for those who collect the stuff
Jun 11 20:25:17 <Shiral>   I liked the train--I thought the collar was way out of proportion to the rest of the dress. But if you're 19 and beautiful, you can look good in almost anything.
Jun 11 20:25:27 <Laurna>   Diana's dress was not a very flattering one. Mom used it to tell me I was better off not being royalty because of that dress.
Jun 11 20:25:32 <DesertRose>   The giant poofy sleeves were a little ridiculous too.
Jun 11 20:25:46 <Evie>   It was very much in fashion in the 1980s, but yes, it looks outdated now
Jun 11 20:26:08 <Shiral>   I think I'm just as happy NOT to be royal most days. =o)
Jun 11 20:26:25 <KK>   The fabric wrinkled very badly.  You'd think they would have done some testing before using it for such an important gown.
Jun 11 20:26:28 <Shiral>   I like a glimpse into that world sometimes, but I wouldn't care to live it ALL the time.
Jun 11 20:26:30 <Laurna>   kates dress one the other hand was gorgeous.
Jun 11 20:26:31 <Alkari>   The paparazzi would drive you crazy
Jun 11 20:26:39 <Evie>   I'm as happy not to be royal, but I'd love to work at Windsor Castle.  ;-)
Jun 11 20:26:41 <DesertRose>   I think my mom's beef with that wedding gown is that for the most part, Diana's fashion taste was much better/more streamlined than that.
Jun 11 20:26:46 <Eyikl>   Yeah, the lack of constant tv coverage makes up for a lot.
Jun 11 20:27:19 <Shiral>   Tati now says hello
Jun 11 20:27:25 <DesertRose>   No kidding, KK, re: wrinkles.
Jun 11 20:27:28 <Eyikl>   Hi Tati
Jun 11 20:27:30 <DesertRose>   Hi Tati  *sends scritches*
Jun 11 20:27:33 <KK>   But Diana started out with frills and big collars and such, and her taste refined as she gained access to the top designers, who all wanted to dress her.
Jun 11 20:27:37 <DesertRose>   True
Jun 11 20:27:54 <Alkari>   Yes, interesting to see how she matured in elegance
Jun 11 20:28:08 <Shiral>   And she definitely learned how to look elegant
Jun 11 20:28:09 *   Annie has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
Jun 11 20:28:24 <DesertRose>   And it didn't hurt that she was tall, slim, and not full-figured, so she could wear the elegant designer fashion that would look silly on a shorter, rounder woman.
Jun 11 20:28:43 <Shiral>   I wouldn't have wanted to iron Diana's dress that's for sure. You'd have to start early in the morning and you wouldn't be finished until lunch!
Jun 11 20:28:57 <DesertRose>   Lunch, nothing!  Ironing that gown would have been an all-day project!
Jun 11 20:29:09 <KK>   And then all she had to do was get into that carriage, and all the ironing goes out the window.
Jun 11 20:29:14 <DesertRose>   Yup
Jun 11 20:29:17 <Shiral>   Yes, darn her. she did have a great figure.
Jun 11 20:29:18 <Laurna>   For three people
Jun 11 20:29:22 <Alkari>   Am convinced that Designer Fashion is generally not designeded for Real Women!
Jun 11 20:29:45 <Alkari>   Or at least, women who eat more than three letuuce leaves each day
Jun 11 20:29:45 <Shiral>   It's not priced for us, either!
Jun 11 20:29:47 <DesertRose>   It isn't.  It's designed for fifteen-year-old, six-foot-tall fashion models with no bustline and no hips.
Jun 11 20:29:54 <Eyikl>   It designed to make real women want to diet.
Jun 11 20:30:01 <DesertRose>   Ding!  Eyikl takes the point!
Jun 11 20:30:21 <Shiral>   Araxie is lucky--no cameras in her era!
Jun 11 20:30:26 <Alkari>   lol
Jun 11 20:30:43 <DesertRose>   I have the height for fashion but not the figure.  My bust and hips were always too big.
Jun 11 20:30:56 <Shiral>   Although I'm sure dressing well and setting fashions is equally important for her
Jun 11 20:31:03 <The_Bee>   And the photo is edited to make the model look even slimmer than real life.
Jun 11 20:31:09 <KK>   LOL, true, Shiral.  And on that note, I see that it's getting late, folks, so I'm going to boogie.  See you guys next week.
Jun 11 20:31:13 <Laurna>   Ah but mental images could be passed from person to person. so royalty still had to look good.
Jun 11 20:31:15 <Shiral>   NIght, KK
Jun 11 20:31:18 <Alkari>   See you KK
Jun 11 20:31:20 <Shiral>   Thanks for stopping by!
Jun 11 20:31:22 <DesertRose>   Okay, see you next week, KK.  Thanks for coming to see us.  G'night!
Jun 11 20:31:29 <Laurna>   Good night KK
Jun 11 20:31:32 <The_Bee>   nighters, KK. Thanks for coming
Jun 11 20:31:34 <Alkari>   Do please look for that wedding pic.
Jun 11 20:31:45 <Eyikl>   Goodnight KK
Jun 11 20:31:46 <Evie>   And men appreciated curves in those days as a sign of fertility. (Which, if you consider it, it can be, since underweight women often have fertility problems and/or irregular menstrual cycles.)
Jun 11 20:31:50 *   KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
Jun 11 20:31:59 <Evie>   Goodnight, KK
Jun 11 20:32:10 <The_Bee>   god week, KK
Jun 11 20:32:11 <Shiral>   Well yes. She's a woman under constant public scrutiny. But she doesn't have to worry about constantly being surrounded by photographers.
Jun 11 20:32:14 <KK>   Nighters, all.
Jun 11 20:32:22 *   KK has quit (Quit: CGI:IRC)
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
