Ok, so even though I know there are still not a lot of readers, it’s O.K. since it is mostly my fault, because the only two posts I’ve written were probably not good enough, or not eye-catching enough for people to want to become addicted to this blog of mine.
But even though I’m not really expecting for any of you to actually reply, I really wanted to ask you guys a few things, like ‘What does the word ‘Fashion’ mean to you?’
If you would have asked me this question a few years ago, I would have probably said it is something
superficial, and I would have blamed it for the days when I saw people on the streets dressed alike or even wearing the same outfits.
Now, however, I wouldn’t probably be able to express how I feel towards this Industry even if I had 10.000 words available to fill an essay page up with; but I will try to: To me, Fashion has opened an entire new world, a world of possibilities I have never know before, a world I never thought it even existed, a world that I would perfectly fit in. Or, at least, the world that I hope to one day conquer.
Fashion has become such a huge part of my life now, I am part of so many activities and websites, and I am planning on so much more! I can’t even believe it! I spend 99% of the time I surf the internet searching for Fashion or Beauty-related stuff, since I personally see these two Industries as bein a hole unit.
Fashion has woke up some really bright and incandescent desires and dreams inside me that can not wait to be accomplished! Now, whenever I think of Fashion and my future plans, I feel like a Hairspray Tube sitting next to the fire.
I get so nervous, and so emotional everytime I think of it, because these questions keep coming inside of my head : ‘Am I really fit for this?’ ‘Will I really succeed?’
And what’s even more weird is that I get so passionate about it every single time, but… besides all the amazing and beautiful people here, on the internet, there’s no one to get excited over it with. That’s because I have actually never told any of my friends what my future plans are. I mean, they kinda know something, but it was only this past summer when I decided that Fashion must become a part of my life, and not only a hobby, so they don’t exactly know where I’m heading to…
You would probably find it kinda sad… I find it sad too, now that I think about it, but the truth is that I did have the chance to tell them about my ‘Passion for Fashion‘, but I just… I didn’t want to. I was scared, and I am still scared of the possible ‘This doesn’t suit you’ or ‘Just quit already, you weren’t made for this’ as replies from them.
There’s also this kind of annoying side of me that doesn’t want anyone to copy her. Like, I’ve had times when I would talk about the things that I want to do, and the people around me would start wanting the same things. It’s actually not this that really bothers me, but the fact that they might be able to get it sooner than me. Isn’t this frustrating? it is, to me…
But besides that, Fashion, and everything it involves, is an art to me. A beautiful, inspiring, gorgeous, creative art. It is like a new way of expressing myself/yourself. It can even be seen as something that could tie us all together, can’t it?
To me, the clothes I would wear when I left the house would be the ones to bring me confidence throught the day. They would be as important to me as Makeup is to some people, since I haven’t, and I still don’t wear a lot of makeup, even though I love experimenting from time to time.
These things, the things that seemed annoying and superficial to that kid that I used to call ‘Me’, would get to be ones of the most important things ever, ones of the things that allow me to dream and shine, ones of the things that would set me free, ones of the things that I really got to love…
So, What does Fashion mean to you?
