Internet Weary

A recent article out of Melbourne, Australia has revealed a recent study of young adult culture wanting to return to a simpler time.

The age group of 16-30 year olds, has apparently had enough of partying and playing on the internet. The youth marketing agency Lifelounge surveyed 1600 young adults and found that they would rather stay home and listen to their parent's old vinyl records and wear vintage clothing!

Well, I can't say I blame them. Nostalgia & simplicity are influencing everything from purchasing power to entertainment choices, but I strongly believe it is not just the youth culture - whenever there is a rough spot in the road, we all wish for simpler times. There is nothing wrong with technology, but don't you find it can be overwhelming at times?

Let's reflect on simpler times:

I ahve often thought that I was born in the wrong decade. I so long for the simpler times growing up..a slower pace and one where everything is appreciated instead of expected. Love you selections...the dresses are beautiful!
