    Mark my word on Fashion

    Rich people will be scared to show off

    Glamour days are over

    Wealthy people will start looking frugal

    This will be the next fashion

    Mark my word

    The next fashion statements will be like hippies

    • You do not have that correct. There will always be a group of counter culture " individualists " who will dress in the shabby chic get up but not the achievers my friend.Just an extension of the trend that has been nevr out and never in. Call it I am an iconoclastic college freshman look. It extends until the entry to the real world occurs. Then it begins to change and fashion kicks into gear into the wardrobe of the achievement set. This set is growing. College graduates are only 4% unemployed. most of those will return to the work force as well. SKS, JWN, are performing well at the revenue and profit line. ROST, Marshalls, are performing well at the price sensitive segment. I do not see any change in the fashion theme with regard to down trading to schmalta looks. Those that like that will continue but it is not going to takeover the scene. better buy some LULU getting ready to move up again.

    • Here is part of what I have written:
      The American Dream has been rooted in the United States Declaration of Independence helping human beings regardless of race, class and ethnic origin to grow and change. These fertile articles gave birth to human innovation and production as humans were able to express and create through the material world. Possession of such material became the validation of one's achievements through life. As time passed these articles provided more equality through legislation and helping individuals live happier through increased mobility and self expression. In view of the fact that we had population explosion, to sustain the American Dream Americans had to pay higher taxes and regulate production for a superior quality. In 1940’s the top bracket was taxed at 94% and until 1980 they paid 70%. As corporations became deregulated and the top tax bracket paid less taxes or no taxes the competition between the top 10% and the rest of the America tilted in favor of the rich. No longer has the American Dream seemed possible even with education as the rest of Americans have to meet daily bills and put aside personal growth and rewardable achievements. Matters became worst as the deregulation helped ease the credit and be founded by the top 10% given to the rest by creating an unsustainable hyper inflation that was destined to burst as only the rich helped each other to be bailed out. This frustration has been reflected through modern times as the top 10% is not willing to contribute and sacrifice their earnings and has divided itself from the rest of America to be the only one whom living the American Dream...

      • Thats not true at all. The american dream is under attack by socialistic democrats who believe in entitlement and a robin hood mentality government. Also the very people who should be dreaming the american dream are turning there dreams into nightmares by living way out their means. STOP buying things you can't afford, save your money and don't buy a house with less than 20% down. I ask you this; how is it mercedes sales are up something like 40% if theres a growing disparity in the middle class vs the rich, if there a less people becoming rich who's buying up all those expensive cars; the middle class. They still haven't learned there lesson and are spending themselves into oblivion. This is the result of the decline in the american public education system that been eroding for decades, simply put less intelligent generation, making more money than previous generations and spending it unwisely, the mega rich are reaping the rewards and becoming richer while the middle class are slowly knocking themselves into poverty and this is whats reducing the middle class.
