I respect that, I feel like fashion is about expressing one self, regardless of how odd and different it might be. There have been a lot of really weird things in the last couple of years, i.e Lady Gaga's meat dress for the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards?? but who I'm I to judge!
In my own words, fashion is what you make it to be, style what you want it to be, trend is what you set. What's in is what you bring, what's out is what you've leave. I do not believe in being trend follower, I have always been told to be a leader. It is nice to have the latest things in fashion but its not a necessity if you can't afford it.
I can afford to get the newest Giuseppe Zannoti Shoes and rings, but that is not where my priority sits. I make use of what I have, its not about the label for me but about how it is worn. It is nice when you wear the simplest thing that you consider nothing of, and then others adore it.
Best example is this year's 2013 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet, pictures below. There were sexy elegance worn by the likes of Ashanti and Chanel Iman, cute pretty by Ariana Grande (she is so adorable). I like Ciara's Givenchy dress, its haute Couture. I think Selena Gomez looked amaze-balls! She has grown into such a stunning young lady, I love her.
Then we have the likes of Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, who I am refraining to comment because, there is really not much you could say? But what is wrong with Miley, btw why was she grabbing up Robin Thicke??? Paula?
So just be yourself wear what inspires you. And let others follow you..
