Did I loose touch with the real world? When did the hipster population suddenly boom?

I remember the days of the hippies (leftovers from the 70s into the 80s); the neon punks of the 80s; wannabe cool cats that ‘can’t touch this’; the move to Joburg in the late 90s; normal fashionistas in the 00s and now we have hipsters, upcyclers, recyclers, almost-hippies, rollback-80s and reality TV stars.

I still think Vanilla Ice is cooler than the arctic and wish Bieber would pull up his pants. I hate that caps now have straight fronts – or backs or sides. I can’t stand clothes that look tatty or unwashed hair of rockers/rockettes.

I am unashamedly normal with cats, a husband, city apartment and holiday home. I buy from labels to budget – I really don’t care.
