Three Things I Love About Fashion:
1. Have you ever heard the quote that travels along the lines of “Fashion fades; but style is forever”? — As mysterious as the formation of the Universe, the reason behind why you can’t resist a good chocolate bar, or why Mr. Bieber’s voice is still so high, fashion somehow always comes back in style to exact its revenge.
That’s where your own style is given inspiration and your everyday fashion morphs into your personal style. 1980s studs have suddenly appeared on your favorite designer’s shoes, and once hippie-inspired maxi dresses now make a debut in modern stripes. This phenomenon never ceases to amaze me.
2. Accessorizing with your favorite pieces turns you into a walking scrapbook. I tend to wear minimal accessories and each one has a story or sparks a constant good memory of where I first purchased or attained it. A watch from London, a great steal on a purse from a thrift shop, or a necklace designed by a friend. This idea is two-sided when you ask a friend or a stranger, “Where did you get that scarf?” and incidentally opens part of their own past, possibly serving as a great conversation starter.
3. Affordable finds. I love discovering new designers and paging through my favorite designer’s look books. It’s more amazing to see their designs from their runway shows trickle down through the retail industry and influence buyers. It’s empowering as a consumer to be able to try a look that you can then afford, which your favorite designer has inspired.
