Chanel has always been classic, and recognized even by people who don’t know much about fashion. But is classic a thing of the past? During these tough times, people can’t afford Chanel, or any designer clothes really. Less, and less people are interested in designers because of the high end prices. 

 

Is it really fair for celebrities, and dirty rich VIPs to keep the clothes to themselves? Or is this just how fashion has always been, all about VIP, and exclusiveness? What happened to sharing fashion with the world, letting everyone feel good in those designer clothes?

Fashion Capitol: Milan

So, as we speak, I am in my Hotel room right in the heart of Milan. As I've heard, and many of my readers of course, Milan is "supposed" to be the "Fashion Capitol of the World".

 

Now, I'm starting to have my doubts about this label. When I arrived here, I had high expectations. I got off the plane, and had a car take me to my Hotel. We passed through town and all I really noticed was how trashy it is out here. Now, I know that shouldn't matter, but to me, fashion always means luxury. From the majority of the city, it's defiantly not luxurious. It's full of graffiti, and such.

 

Now, fashion wise: People are dressed nice, but I've seen so much better. Everyone is a bit too casual with classic black leather jackets, and boots, or heels. There are exceptional people, I must say. But so very few. In New York City, there is so much more ambition, desire, and inspiration going on. It's like a marination of individuality.

 

I think the "Fashion Capitol of the World" should be relocated.

You guys be the judge, let me know what you think.

Juicy Couture Leather gladiator sandals

$195.00 by Juicy Couture at Net-A-Porter

Gold leather gladiator sandals with plaited straps throughout and circular detailing at arch. Juicy Couturesandals have a strap across toe and two side fastening ankle straps and a small heel.

 

 

Are these, I'd say, affordably priced gladiators still, in, or are they history? You tell me.

Risks, and Ridicule: The Two Deathly R's of Fashion

Some of you men out there are fighting those odds, and crossing the boundaries of fashion. Don’t think that’s a bad thing though, that is ultimately what makes us the creative minds we are.

 

Being androgynous, to me, is very exciting. Some people like it on some, and some people don’t on others. It’s just how far you go. I personally love it when guys test the boundaries, and are willing to take a chance. Fashion is all about risk, and chance. Nobody can ever be too sure of themselves when they go out there into the world. They just have to stay confident in themselves, and know that they look good. Remember: looking good is feeling good.


            I just wanted to let you all know where I stand on that issue. Because it’s not one (an issue).  I would just like to applaud you men especially for paying the highest price of fashion, ridicule. It’s harder for a man to test the waters, rather then women. That’s mostly why men tend to stay away from dressing nice. They’re afraid they seem like a girl in the eyes of other men. Even though most women will tell anyone, “I am WAYYY more attracted to a guy with a sense of style!”.

Michelle Obama: The Unlikely Fashionista

Michelle Obama in H&M Dress 

 

H&M has been a haven for most, including myself. Michelle Obama seems to think so too. She has worn several pieces from H&M on several occasions. And no, I’m not talking about running around doing errands, I mean public events and such. I like to call this, fast fashion. Just like fast food, this is easy to find, cheap, and a quick fix. Although, unlike fast-food, fast-fashion doesn’t put on any pounds! She seems very conscious about budgeting, especially in our current times. All to her! We need an inspiring woman for both men and women in these tough times that prove you can still be fashionable, even if you have to pull clothes from the back of your closet and dust them off. These are new times, but our old clothes can’t tell the difference.

 

H&M was established by Errling Perrson in 1947. He called his store Hennes at first, which is Swedish for “hers”. Later, he got the M from Mauritz, a hunting store he once acquired in Stockholm. Thus, later naming the store H&M in 1968.

 

Getting back to the point, being creative with your clothes is very important, and should be the fun part of dressing. It shouldn’t be stressful. Though, there can be those days you just get anxious and can’t seem to find what to wear. When these times happen, just sit down, and take a breathe. No need to panic! Remember: always remind yourself what you’re dressing for whether it be a day in the city, a party, or formal event.


Michelle proves that you can be fashionable, even if you can't afford designer items.
