☆ Trending eggs ☆

An update I´ve wanted to make for a while,
about a curiosity that I´ve wanted to discuss concerning
the rather odd trend of putting

on everything!

 So yeah, I´ve totally fallen for this trend myself though, I freaking love images of eggs and egg inspired outfits, accessories, artwork etc etc etc etc.
These days you find eggs printed on pretty much everything. 
And perhaps, let me be clearer at that. 
usually fried eggs. sunnyside up. 


as many other trends, this is also most likely coming from Harajuku in Japan,
where similar things like bread and milk is getting really popular, print-wise.
Why this weird, sudden popularity for these simple objects?
Maybe that´s just it! 

Eggs, milk and bread are things that most people have in their everyday life,
so it´s quite relatable. The image is calm, weird and not so "out there" that you look like a total odd-ball sporting it. Atleast in moderate combinations that is.
Ofcourse, knowing myself I would probably deck myself in a complete egg and/or bread themed outfit just for the heck  of it.
I just love how it looks. it´s so indie and weird and it makes me think of huge, round glasses and cute bob-haircuts and tomboyish bandaids on your knees. 

aestethics, inspiration!

I´ve put together some collages for cute egg-themed outfits:

Tshirt / Skirt / Bag / Shoes / Socks

 Sweater / Shorts / Shoes / Bag / Socks

Jacket / Shirt / Shorts / Shoes

Also, some recent egg-themed art has been popping up:

So, I just wanted to share my absolute love for this trend, and I 
would love to hear what others think about it :-)
