Hello you X
Let me introduce myself. I’m a city girl who drinks her coffee black and LOVES fashion. With love I mean I really love clothes and accessories. I am someone who absolutely loves styling and putting outfits together! There is a quote that many may not know by famous French designer called Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel a.k.a Coco Chanel! She says:
‘Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street! Fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live & what is happening.’
When Ronia asked me to write a fashion post for her blog, I first thought it was a joke, but she was dead serious. My head raced with ideas such as :
- how to style your high waist jeans
- how to colour coordinate your outfits
- how to put patterns together plus many other ideas !
Though these are all good to know, I felt more compelled to inspire you on what fashion actually is because believe it or not we are all fashionabe in our very own beautiful way !
“Fashion really is something that makes you and says who you are!”
“Fashion is something that is created to reflect the way you are.”
“It is a creation of personalty, experience and inspiration.”
Don’t think about fashion as a high class thing. It’s not a trend or style you need to follow. It’s not a certain item or jean that you need to wear. This generation is obsessed with following trends, break the mould and be yourself !
“Fashion put simply is a CREATED STYLE THAT REFLECTS YOU”
Finally to close let me inspire you with this thought and set you up with a new challenge to take into the new year! Next time you look for that “fashionable” outfit to rock at work, school or night out with your friends, choose and wear something that is comfortable, but also shows the best accents of you.
Think always is this me and does it reflect me. If you are an expressive person show it through colours in your style or if you are more simple, show it trough a minimal style. Just be true to you! Don’t let the media make you feel that you suck at fashion because the truth is you don’t !
So as I sign off let’s remind ourselves of what Coco Chanel said: ‘Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street. Fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live & what is happening.
