Fashion Is A Virtue

Fashion. It is an incredible thing. So much goes into it. All the way from the people who design the things we wear, to the trend setters who give the intended look an ENTIRELY different spin. Fashion may seem trivial to some people. But to some… It can be EVERYTHING. A form of self-expression. So much can be said about a person solely based on the clothes they have decided to wear. Even if fashion doesn’t interest you, it does. In some way it does. At some point you had to make a conscious decision what to wear this morning, or when you first purchased the item. Something called out to you about it. Not matter how BOLD or how subtle the article may be. It’s yours and you chose it.


I could go on and on about the things that intrigue me about fashion but something I liked best is how people make it their own. You can take two outfits, exactly the same, but on two different people they can be entirely different! Not only can an accessory change the feel of an outfit, but one’s attitude can completely transform and transend it into something that speaks volumes. I have always taken an interest in making an outfit or piece your own. So much can be done with a trip to a craft store, some scissors, and a hot glue gun! The next time you find something in the back of your closet and are thinking about throwing it away… THINK AGAIN! Take that piece and transform in into something new. Not only have you put you own personalized take on something but you could very well start a trend, or at the very least save yourself a few bucks. We are in a recession people! Take you inner FASHIONISTA and make yourself into a RECESSIONISTA! And one of the best things in fashion is so many people have made it OK to do what YOU want. You can’t be wrong!


Here I’ve included a link to one of my favorite sites where people have MADE fashion and made it available for you to purchase! Don’t be afraid to look around! I have found some AMAZING things here! And if you do too feel free to share them in the comments!!!
