♪ Flume- Never be like you ♪
I’ve always been very passionate about standing by my fashion choices, because I’m the type of person to try some things before they are cool or embrace the craziest trends. Most of the times, the first person to question my choices is my mom, because she is quite conservative when it comes to fashion. Ever since I got into Med School, there is a new phrase she uses “I’m not saying I don’t like it, it’s just something a doctor shouldn’t wear”. This is, of course, also what she said when she saw these boyfriend ripped jeans. I love my mom, but this is where we agree to disagree. The thing is, I’m in LOVE with these jeans not just because I found them on a major sale when I most neeeded them (on the last day of Untold it rained and I had no jeans in my luggage so I just went to the mall and found them in a heartbeat), but also for the fact they have the best glitter game, exquisite fabric and they fit my curves! I’m not saying I would wear them to the hospital, but I don’t get why society virtually sets these crazy rules, I see it fit to wear them whenever I please in my spare time.
I’m obviously thinking on a larger scale right now, there is always a general opinion you shouldn’t wear something if you have a certain profession, or dye your hair a certain way or have tattoos. I have decided I will never judge a person by their style, because I believe everyone should feel comfortable in their clothes. There are always these high standards, but society has to evolve at some point. Take pants for example, what would it be like if women never started wearing them? Can you imagine going everywhere wearing a big fluffy skirt and a dreadful corset?
I’m honestly grateful I’m a regular woman and that I’m able to make my own choices, I don’t mind the scrutiny. I’ve been really passionate about the history of the British monarchy lately and I finally had the courage to watch “The Crown” on Netflix. I’m using the term “courage” because portraying history on television is a really delicate matter. I never expected it to be so raw and emotional, to show the events in every small detail- the resemblance with the actual photos and films of the time is spectacular! As most little girls, I used to dream and admire the concept of royals when I was young (Prince Charming was my absolute favorite haha). The fascination never faded away, but I see it with such different eyes right now. I mean, here I am, talking about being free to choose my glitter-y ripped jeans and HRH Princess Margaret had to choose between the love of her life and keeping her title and family. It really puts things in perspective.
PS: You absolutely have to watch the show “Victoria” as well, it’s fascinating!
