It actually bothered me when one of my colleague complimented me that I barely repeat any of my clothes for weeks. In any other given day, I would have been ecstatic about it, but it kind of annoyed or more so made me uncomfortable. I dwindled on the fact that why is it that the idea that someone noticed my style was not that impressive, but more so someone pointing out the fact that I don’t repeat my clothes was of utmost concern. This was the tipping point in my fashion life ( I often consider that to be different than my role as a mother and as a wife which is I guess a true essence of a woman!).
There you go, now you get why I am writing this, You think I just need to share my story. Not really, all this brings out one question that we all need to ask ourselves when we buy a piece of garment, a pair of shoes, or even an earring, DO WE LOVE IT TO GO BACK TO IT AGAIN? This is true Mary Kondo philosophy! 😂
I started purging and rediscovering my closet, and realized that I have truly never loved most of my closet, but bought it because I wanted to prove that I needed to wear new things. That was a sad moment! How many of you feel this way? When you go back to your closet to look for something to wear, even though your closet is exploding with clothes, you find yourself nothing to wear. Have you thought of why is that?
They say Fashion is a something that the brands decide, Trend is something that the masses decide, but Style is your own Choice! And, that my friend is for a reason. You create your own style, by loving what you wear, clothes are not just to cover your body, but its actually an avenue to express yourself, to feel your own self even when you are lost in the crowd.
Following trends can be exhausting, both for you and for your wallet! Fast forward to today, I still buy trendy pieces inspired by Vogue or Fashion Week, but I buy the trendy piece that I think I will fall in love with. I dont compromise with my style, because I think it might not be acceptable with the current trend, but prefer to wear timeless pieces that defies all trends. I repeat my clothes proudly and when noticed I talk about why I love them so much to go back to them time and again. And in all of this I have found my own style my own way.
Ofcourse, you will still see me talking about trends, but you will always find a style that you think you can follow easily in everything that I share.
