Well hello there! Thanks for stopping by.....
This is my first blog post for SBK, so what better way is there to get started than to talk about my view on the fashion industry?! I'd like to start out by saying that Fashion and Style are two different things. Fashions are trends, Style is a manner. I for one, am all about STYLE! Like Tom Ford said, "Dressing well is a good form of manners". Some of us are born with style, others, not so much. Yes there are some trends that catch my eye, but I wouldn't consider myself a trend follower, or setter. I believe in investing in my wardrobe, buying classic items that will be in style year, after year, after year which is what I feel sets me apart from other fashion lovers.
With that being said, these are the items I believe everyone should invest in:
(It's better to spend one large lump sum on good quality, than to spend a small amount repeatedly and constantly have to replace a lack lusting item. When you think about as many times as you've had to replace that Forever 21 bag, you could have definitely gotten a decent Michael Kors bag. I'm not saying "labels" are everything, but quality is. You ever heard the saying, "You get what you pay for?").
1) A good watch, wallet and handbag. "Time is money", and I'd like to think my time and hard work is very valuable. So why not respect your time with a good watch, and your money by placing it in a nice cozy home.
2) A good blazer, jacket and coat. Nothing says "respect me" like a woman dressed for success.
3) Shoes. Shoes speak louder than words. "High heels, high standards". Or in my case, "The flatter the shoe, the more running I can do". Who said you can't hustle in flats? :)
How would I describe my style?
I don't really think there are words to describe my wicked sense of style. I would most definitely say overall my wardrobe is minimalistic; inspired by vintage styles, European/British styles and menswear. I like to take oversized items, straight cut items, and fitted items and make them feminine with a touch of masculinity. Who runs the world? GIRLS! On another note, the great thing about style is that you can be anyone you wish to be, on any given day. One day I may be girly, the next day I may be grunge. That's the joy in SBK, you'll never know what to expect from me.
Well that's that. Feel free to leave questions or comments. I'd love to chat with you about your style philosophy! See you reality dolls in Glamourland!
