These are some of the things I hate about myself.
I like going to places like bv, ou, and curve. The funny thing is, it’s not like i maniacally run out and raid boutiques and come home with countless paper bags full of clothes. I actually don’t like shopping for clothes anymore. And I don’t think I ever liked shopping for shoes. Accessories, well it kind of gets itself done, i’m sure you all would know what I mean. All I actually really really want to do is feel the suasana of the mall, and sit down at various places and eat and eat and eat. Expensive food. Mostly desserts.
I look back at what I was like and I feel so surprised. How could I have possibly liked shopping for clothes? It has to be because I was delusional enough to think that
- There actually exists an item of apparel that can fit me perfectly and look flattering on me
- Out there somewhere there is actually an outfit that looks really chic (I can’t believe I used that term, it feels so elitist)
- I actually have the skill to mix and match pieces to accomplish some semblance of style
How morbidly embarrassing. I can’t believe what the industry has come to. What I absolutely dislike is how every piece that ever exists has to be haphazardly seized, brutally ripped from the runway, and watered down so much that everything people are flipping through in boutique racks make me feel kind of embarrassed for humanity. I especially hate how trends that don’t even make sense rampantly take over the media, terrorizing consumers into thinking that if they don’t wear it, they won’t look cool. Then there are these people who are so apathetic that they’re deceived into wearing high-waisted pants for the sake of wearing high-waisted pants. Forget about whether the silhouette is good, or whether the fabric even makes any sense. If everyone’s doing nudes, you just throw on simply whatever nude you can find. Take a completely hideous top, and wear it with a skinny belt, because since skinny belts are in right now, you’ll look fashion forward in it no matter what you pair it with. Sheer! Everyone’s wearing that right now! Just throw on this black Nina Ricci even though the slit is too high and has a sheer train to boot. My god, black and sheer are two separate concepts, you can’t stuff them both into one outfit! Everyone knows sheer looks better in colours, like blue.
You could’ve just made the choice to be yourself. Express yourself and your personal style. Which is essentially the whole point in the first place. Save yourself the stylists fee. You don’t need to subscribe to elle, marie claire, vanity fair, or W. Just let your opinions and beliefs, you know, your principles, guide your choices.
Please, can there just be something original for once. Why is everything just a repetition of a previous era? I thought the whole point was to be innovative. To give people something new to wear.
