What is Fashion?


Honestly and truelly... this question is something I wonder everyday. Style does not actually have any rules and people interpret things to be different. One person might like weating orange socks with a red skirt while someone else (including me) would find that revolting. So who makes up the rules? And who decided what right or wrong? And why are we all so different yet so the same?


Even the people who say they do not care about fashion, at the back of their minds they also do. At the end of the day when you wake up in the morning and you feel fat and dull you will wear something totally different to when you feel sexy and cofident... that's just human nature.


"Fashion is a state of mind. A spirit, an extension of one's self. Fashion talks, it can be an understated whisper, a high-energy scream or an all knowing wink and a smile. Most of all fashion is about being comfortable with yourself, translating self-esteem into a personal style."


"It's just clothes, get the f over it!"

Overated things fade away has fashion been here as long as man has existed because it is not just clothes. So it is not overatted it is what it is. a way of expressing your self and being different from others. You can express your mood, your style, your intrest and generally anything with it.

But honestly who makes it what it is? YOU!


And She'll Take Her Clothes Off and It Will Be Shameless

When Lily sang her song 'The Fear' she did say 'And I'll take my clothes off and it will be shameless, Cause everyone knows that's how you get famous' so no surprise that she has yet another image to add to her collection of nipples. I must admit she really does look stunning.

Accessorizing with devil horns and a cigarette was a great way of adding her own touch to l'art de nudité. She also calls her naked self "a funny looking thing.

Honestly with the style of her photos and her personal image. I think she could of got the same attention and still look very hot without showing a thing. She did look great and very original though.


Once You Go Black, You Never Go Back

What I don't understand is why people have a strong dislike for the Gothic fashion. It is not always ugly platform boots and chains linking from your nose to your ear. I actually believe pulling off wearing all black (or mostly) actually requires real fashion sense and creativity. Most people rely on the colours to let the outfit speak but if it is just one then you can not rely on anything but your self to make it look right.


The problem with wearing black is the fact that you can easily get sucked into the outfit where it seems like your head is floating.


The great thing is it will make you look slimmer and statement pieces are much easier to make like a belt with a gold buckle or red shoes. Reason: there is nothing else to take the attention away from it! Fabulous.

Kira Plastinina Spring/ Summer 2010

Kira Plastinia's summer 2010 brought hope into my heart that my generation will not fail in bringing great designs that will one day be so great. It will live up to the standards of all the previous centuries. Because lets face it new ideas are really and truly running out - well nice ones anyway. She is already getting herself known at the ripe age of 15 now she is a 17 years old Russian female designer that has clothes available in Russia, Europe, LA, New York & London . she deserves a round of applause don't you think?


Fill the gap between the heel and the sole

This season I am totally in love with ankle boots. If no one else wants to join me I'm happy to flaunt it on my own. My favorite ankle boots right now besides the baroque heels I bought(Which I will post up once my camera gets fixed or I get a new one) recently are wedged shoe boots . The best thing about them are that you can wear them any time of day, any weather, at any occasion because you can never dress too casual or too formal for them - Perfect!


The the number one rule to remember when making a statement with your shoes is to never think by going over the top you are making a statement, you could just be making a fool of yourself. Seriously wearing purple wedges with 10 inches under it and dead green flowers sticking out from every corner of it is not chic, it is unwanted attention you will definitely be getting for the rest of your journey.


Be Your Own Snow White


In the UK the snow is getting really bad. If you know people from the UK, then you would know that when it gets really cold we love just to curl up with a cup of coffee on the sofa and watch our favorite television programs on repeat or get our massive puff jackets, that are too hideous to look at, from the back of our wardrobes and roll in the snow for a while. Even though that does sound fun there is always a way to get creative, no matter the weather. After all what were thick tights, gloves and jumper dresses made for?



One Size Fits All

V magazine has got everyone in the fashion industry's lips moving and it is just the start of 2010. Their new year issue named 'The Size Issue' took a new turn from skinny cover girls like Natalie Portman and moving the attention to 'plus-size' models.

V learnt a new lesson this month with their new campaign, that even with the best of intentions things can still backfire. Their attempt to portray a no matter your size your just as beautiful image was very distorted. Questions emerged on why the two models (Jacquelyn Jablonski and plus-size model Crystal Renn) had to be compared and if using Crystal Renn alone would of given the same effect.

In all fairness V magazine did try to make a stand for what they believe is right. And it is right to think every size should be treated the same. Without the comparison we wouldn't realize that a plus size and general model can look just as beautiful as each other.

Personally, I think its about time 'plus' size models got their turn in the limelight. I put plus in quotation because, with all truth, plus size models are just normal size people who have been branded because they do not comply with the fashion standards of being stick thin. However, models should be mixed. Telling a girl that she is 'too skinny' is just as bad as telling another she is 'too fat'. My interpretation of their campaign is not just to highlight that 'plus size' is beauty but that models and people should be treated equally regardless of their body size - so the comparison was needed.

Designers, photographers and ect listen up - look for the right look not the size!

Christina Aguilera in Marie Claire February 2010

Christina strikes a pose on a grand piano for Marie Claire February 2010 looking the cutest she possibly could for the first time in her musical life.

I had a really hard time being light before. I’d get a little weird about it being too cliché. My first record was very clichéd pop - what everyone else wanted. [My second album Stripped] inspired by a lot of pain. [My third, Back to Basics,] /still had some sort of relation to my past. [My new album] is just about the future - my son in my life, motivating me to want to play and have fun.

I love the sexy innocent look she has got going on and I know we all want it to stay. She's given up her 'wanna be dirrty!' days and is now dare I say sexy and fashionable appose to hot MILF. You go girl!
