The Kitsch Niche

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Kitsch (n.): something of tawdry design, appearance, or content created to appeal to popular or undiscriminating taste.

I've always heard the term kitsch thrown around, but never truly know what it meant, just that it referred to adorably cheesy jewelry/clothing/art/etc. The word often refers to retro, witty, or just plain cutesy items. Often time i find stuff like this a little over-the-top, but in small doses and can give your outfit a witty edge, or create a conversation piece. Kitsch has always been around, but with popular culture oozing over to every area of our life it is becoming more widespread than ever. There is even an article in the New York Times magazine about buying kitschy gifts.

Kitsch is fun. Avoid it in artwork, enjoy it in quirky accessories.
