Is this really fashion?
Hi girls! I'm now at the point of being so tired I've gone a tad hyper, so I thought I'd write this now since Alex and her brother are watching a film in the living room. I had a great day at work, I actually really enjoy it(!) but after this I'm going to attempt to wind down with having a bath with Lush's Ickle Baby Bot thrown in there to relax me!
BUT before I do that, there's another question I'd like to ask you all; it's something I've been pondering on for a while.
Does money = fashionable?
I follow quite a few fashion blogs now, although they aren't the main type of blog I look for when I'm on the hunt for new reading material. The thing is, I can't help but notice that the girls who are seen as the 'most fashionable' are the ones who seem to have £100+ to blow on a dress on a semi daily basis. Is that fashionable? I'm not so sure.
In my opinion (and it really is purely my opinion) someone who has a notion of matching colours (if that's even applicable that month) and who can follow what Vogue says to wear that month, is automatically fashionable. IF, and it's a big if, they have the money to constantly be out buying BCBG and Chanel. But is that right, or fair?
I don't think it is. I have so much admiration for the girls who go to charity shops or thrifting and step out a couple of days later having altered the clothing into something that makes them look drop dead stunning. Or the girls who scour the high-street for a bargain and come up smelling of roses.
That to me is fashionable, that's a woman who has her own vision, not someone elses. A woman who knows what she's doing and who she is, rather than following what she should be wearing.
But I'm sure I may be alone on this one. Are you team Chanel or team Charity shop? What are your thoughts? I'd love to know!
