I've been gone for almost two months now.
Coat from Dolce & Gabbana, boxers from Uniqlo
I'm in Chicago until tomorrow, then NYC, then two more cities and home sweet home.
Robyn – Indestructible
Robyn’s final ‘Body Talk’ installment is going to be released soon and since I haven’t posted a music entry in the past few weeks so let me share you one of my favourite tracks in her album. This is an edit of ‘Indestructible’.
And I never was smart with love… I let the bad ones in and the good ones go but… I’m gonna love you like I’ve never been hurt before… I’m gonna love you like I’m indestructible. Your love is ultramagnetic, not again it’s taking over. This is hardcore…and I’m indestructible.
Good Advice, Bad Advice
As strange as it sounds, I'm constantly inundated with emails from my readers asking for fashion advice. Advice on what to buy, advice on what to wear, advice on personal style, etc.
While I mostly blog about myself (and fashion), I find it funny that some come to me with their sartorial questions when I'm hardly fashionable or stylish myself. A relative once asked me why I like going out looking like a christmas tree.
I blog about "fashion", yes, such as the things I like, the things I've seen, the things I've worn, etc.
However, giving advice is something I'm not good at. It's also something I don't want to do.
I hope you understand (and accept my apologies) if I don't personally respond to your emails seeking advice because I cannot tell you what will look good on you without seeing let alone knowing you.
It wouldn't make sense for me to dictate 'ok this is what you should wear' only for you to end up not liking it, or worse, thing that you'll put on is not YOU.
Dressing up, to me, comes from within. The things that we put on our bodies should reflect ourselves: our mood, our emotions, our personality.
With that being said, there are many countless style blogs and magazines out there to draw inspiration from.
Me, on the other hand, I draw inspiration from myself. I know it's narcissistic but you won't see me collect photos of people to try to emulate them or add my own 'twist' to their looks.
I believe in individuality and being unique. Looking different to everyone regardless of the trend gets brownie points in my book. I like it when there's something 'not right' or something 'off' or if I look 'ridiculous' to the eyes of others. Afterall, I dress for myself. Looking "perfect" is too easy. Take a look around and notice how beautiful people look these days? There are many, many, many beautiful individuals out there.
Unless you have your own personal style nailed down, it doesn't hurt to play around with our looks and have fun in the process.
So go right ahead and play with fashion. Always remember individual style triumphs over conformity. Don't forget to march to the beat of your own drum.
