Patterns of Conspicuous Consumption

Author:

Blogger Amy DuFault of EcoSalon is pointing out the obvious with her post about the continuing popularity of Navajo patterns among urban hipsters—but we must admit to a little bit of sticker shock.

$233 for a little Navajo dress by Opening Ceremony?

$390 (on sale) for a blanket jacket by Mociun?

“This is certainly a trend that’s hanging around,” DuFault concludes. “So what are you going to do about it? Neglect it or grab a piece?” It’s an interesting question, especially since comparable vintage Navajo-inspired duds can be had so cheaply.
