I love people who are true to themselves and confident enough in their own skin to pull off any outfit and carry themselves with poise. I believe everyone should feel great about the way the look and have fun reflecting their best image to the world! No fashion is “in” unless it’s “out” of your unique style. But you are NOT what designer brands you wear! It saddens me to see/hear some people judging themselves and others by their latest “it” buys or lack of it. Since when has high street brands become an indication of a lesser social status? Yes, some people do think that they can not be seen sporting anything less than a designer branded look from head to toe. This is not just wrong, it’s a pity. It only shows that you lack self confidence, style and creativity. Am definitely pro designer brands – we all love the luxury, quality, attention to detail and craftsmanship that goes into creating each unique piece – but I wouldn’t buy any piece just because it’s a designer label. I will only invest in it because it looks great and fits perfectly on me – just like any other label. And I specifically hate “in your face” printed logos. We all mix designer with high street and we won’t have to explain ourselves for it! Copying the latest catwalk or window look won’t win you the style stakes. Creating your own unique style will. Look inside yourself and outside your window for inspiration – and am not talking shop windows :) Street style is the truest form of real fashion. Your own unique personality should show in the details of how you style your look. Get inspired by your favorite designers, style icons, movies, songs, books, nature… but please don’t turn into another copy cat fashionista!
