As I am going through some major changes in my life…in a particular closing chapter, I have turned to fashion to make my days brighter and happier. It doesn’t really mean I’m unhappy, it just means I’m feeling quite nostalgic and emotional. I sought after color, texture and style to remind me of how beautiful life is and how this next big chapter in my life will be filled with amazingly ‘notorious’ adventures with the person I love and cherish. Fashion consoles me in difficult time and I needed a break from all the chaos. So today, I went for the happier times in modern fashion…the roaring twenties; the times of perfectly joyous, avant-garde, jazzy days, where nothing else but happiness mattered. The times of women decided to break through the Victorian era and rebel against the corsets and uptight clothes. The flapper women are a little bit like heroes for wanting to free themselves from certain rules and for expressing themselves through fashion.
As I was inspired by their strength, I went all out with my outfit…like I mean all out. Perhaps it is a little bit too much for certain people, but I can strongly say that this particular outfit uplifted my spirits and gave me energy and strength to keep fighting. It may sound super funny, but clothes really do change your perspective on life and how you see things.
Without going on too much on feeling my feelings…here’s what my outfit came out:
Can we just take a moment and look how awesome these pants are! They’re super jazzy and cool! And when you walk and the wind just hits them….ugh, the hems just go flying and dancing into the breeze, making beautiful poetic fashionable waves!
WHAT I WORE:
NECK TIE: Vintage ♦ SHIRT: Thrifted ♦ PANTS: Zara ♦ SHOES: Topshop (y’all have seen them like a million times) ♦ EARRINGS: H&M ♦ SUNGLASSES: Vintage
I tired up my scarf in a way to recall the bob cut and the gorgeous hats…I was pretty impressed on how it came out…although sometimes I felt a little bit like a pirate. Haha!
Nonetheless, I can truly and safely say that today was a good day. I totes needed this and the 1920s were just the right amount of inspiration to keep me going!!!
