I hope one day to have the wisdom of Maya. Her resilience, her confidence and her wit. The world just lost one of the good ones. May her soul rest in peace ❤
So i really wasn’t going to post anything today, firstly because I have nothing of importance to say, and secondly, even if I did I would’t say it well because Im half finishing a school assignment. All of this is totally irrelevant in terms what I am posting about, I really do need to work on my waffling… which brings me to my point! I was on Pintrest (procrastination central) and saw this quote, and since I posted a quote last week maybe I should make a quote a week thing. But I’m fairly disorganised so I won’t officially commit to that.
ANYWAYS! I love this! haha a woman should be fierce in her dress. Not always though, that could be a problem if you’re a single woman 0_0 any who I’m just going to stop typing now.
I stole this from a fellow fashion student. He had made it and was asking for my opinion and so while giving him my opinion i put it on *big smile*. I just thought it had a gothic charm to it, plus it made me look pretty badass. Then I had to give it back -___-
I had watched a documentary on Diana Vreeland about a month ago and as usual my fashion bone was tickled and so was my curiosity. I started doing some more research on this lady and learnt that she was pretty damn fantastic at her time. She was quite possibly insane, definitely over the top, and arguably a genius. If you havent watched the documentary Diana Vreeland: The eye has to travel, go do it, even if you have no interest in fashion. With that said, before Ms Vreeland went on to become one of the most influential Vogue editors, she started her magazine career by writing a little insert in Harpers bazaar know as why don’t you. This consisted of a list of various frivolous things. And so in her honour I made my own little list of why don’t you’s 🙂
“No war or pestilence in history has ever stopped fashion and manners in dress from progressing and changing. It is an indomitable force to adorn and to please, to change and create.”- Diana Vreeland
Somehow I always get to this point. The point where I’m rushing trying not to be late for class and I can’t decide what shoes to wear. If I wear the sneakers it won’t make sense with this skirt, if I wear the pumps my calves will look huge, if I wear the heels I will have to paint my toes… and so on and so forth. Eventually I just pick a damn pair and leave the house.This is the thing about shoes, well at least to me, you can never have enough and the perfect pair won’t remain the perfect pair for long.
I think you can judge a fair amount about a person by the shoes they wear. I used to judge whether or not I would give a guy the time of day by the shoes he wore; running shoes with jeans? Never ever! Crocs? I would rather shoot my knees -__-. BUT When we are dealing with some sexy cut boots or a modern pair of derby shoes… yum. It seems ridiculous yes but I really think I’m onto something.
Much like clothes, the shoes we wear form a part of who we are, what we think of ourselves. If someone is always in sneakers it either means they are ready to run away from a crime scene or they are waaaay laid back; it’s not like you’re going to see the editor of a fashion magazine wearing rafters. That’s just not (hopefully) going to happen. I think shoes however are a great investment, one that people often overlook. A good pair of shoes can finish off a look, make you seem well put together and thoughtful. Never underestimate the power of the shoe, just think of the sexyness and allure that comes with the hot red of a Louboutin (just an example); If i had a cupboard full of those I would wear my shoes before I even brush my teeth. Just saying.
