Explore interesting shops in Amsterdam-No.1 sweet shop as home

三月 31, 2011

Amsterdam have a lots differences form Hangzhou, Wenzhou or any cities i have been in china, which more interested in me is that shops, I always love  hanging out without any purpose just walking, looking and photographing.

Just a glance, i found a nice shop today, located in central Amsterdam, called “De Tweede Ronde” ( the second round), which make sense it’s secondhand shop. The shop owner  is old lady who lives upstairs.

The lady sitting right there, such a Vermeer painting

Raise the curtain appear so sweet picture

what i really feel as soon as i entered this shop, home atmosphere surround you, it’s more than a shop’s feeling, for me it’s as grandma tastes, maybe because the shop owner is an old lady, she can put her clothes, jewelries, her personal collections  all together.

That’s the simple life in AMSTERDAM, own a shop without purpose of earning money, just a place to show your collections.

Naomi Wolf “The Beauty Myth”

The Beauty Myth, published in 1991, is a book by Naomi Wolf. It examines beauty as a demand and as a judgement upon women. Subtitled How Images of Beauty Are Used Against Women, Wolf examines how modern conceptions of women’s beauty impact the spheres of employment, culture, religion, sexuality, eating disorders, and cosmetic surgery.

Wolf argues that women in Western culture are damaged by the pressure to conform to an idealized concept of female beauty—the Iron Maiden throughout modern society, from Victorian Times to today. She argues that the beauty myth is political, a way of maintaining the patriarchal system. It allows women to enter the labour force, but under controlled conditions. She also claims that this system keeps women under control by the weight of their own insecurities. The beauty myth is sometimes viewed as succeeding The Feminine Mystique, which relegated women to the position of housewife, as the social guard over women. In this sense, Wolf claims that public interest in a woman’s virginity has been replaced by public interest in the shape of her body.

Thinking about anther face my web looks like, it could be more artistic, modern,as a painting of Piet Mondrian, so it will be like this~~

Or it could be more culture, filled with Chinese elements, so I think about Chinese paper cut, some of the paper cut are  very fashionable~

Talk about fashion, most people will think about fashion show, what kind of fashion show in China looks like? There maybe a fashion show~~
