So I’m on that kind of college-student, who supports herself with a low paying part-time job kind of budget. The little money I receive from family helps out with food and toilet paper and things like that. But that doesn’t leave a lot of money for the most important thing! CLOTHES!!
I absolutely love the funny looks I get from my family when I wear something, “weird”. And to be quite honest, I don’t actually dress too out of the box,
well not on an average day.
Being born in 1997 means that for a brief few years, I was gracious enough to be a part of possibly the best decade in all of the decades. Honestly, the 90’s gave us amazing music, movies(PULP FICTION??PRETTY WOMAN, FRIDAY??) and so much more.The only reason why today’s movies can even compare is because of the quality of the special effects. Anyway the most important part of the decade though has to be.. Continue reading “The Last Great Decade?”
I’m kind of in love with fashion. And everything that goes with it, the modeling, the photography, the editorial aspect-everything. But of course I don’t know everything. I’m 18, and style and clothes have been ever-changing and evolving since, well, the dawn of time. That makes it virtually impossible for me to know everything-or anyone for that matter. But in my quest for knowledge about all things fashion and the way things work from the inside, I’ve picked up on a pattern.
There’s nothing like putting on a brand new black dress. Or lacing up your trusted pair black leather boots. Placing a new black hat on your head. Or pushing your arms through your favorite weather-beaten black jacket. We love wearing the color black but has anybody ever explained why? If you love clothes and/or dressing up everyday, chances are you’ve sported a sleek all black outfit on a couple of occasions.Even if you think the color is too heavy or only appropriate during colder seasons, you cannot deny how bad ass people look in all black. I know that I am not alone in this.
The late Oscar de la Renta once said that “Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself”. That’s an easy way to describe this never-ending cycle of trends and fads that we always seem to fall into.
“Style” and “Fashion” have become the same thing to some. I go to public school, we all wear what we want whenever. But wearing what we want often becomes what others want or what others are wearing. It becomes a fear thing. We fear that this outfit may not be “in” or my friends will judge because they don’t wear things like this. But isn’t the whole point really just to be comfortable and love what you wear. If you don’t like it don’t put it on. If you do then by all means WEAR it, proudly. The sad thing about today’s society is that we sometimes label people or judge them based on their clothes. I am guilty of it, so are you. Everyone is, and everyone knows that everyone is but we don’t change. Dressing your self according to what you like, according to what makes you feel good should be the only way to do it. I love wearing different fashions and trying things out, that’s what is fun and it’s what I like. I will wear stilettos on Monday,sneakers Thursday and combat boots and Saturday because it’s what I like. It is my style and it is me. Who are you.
