It is said that no one enters your life for no reason. The link might be so subtle that you wouldn’t even say there is one. And it always is one. The one.
What if it’s the same with clothes?
As in don’t struggle to find the white Adidas sneakers just to fit in the standards.
It is one of the fashion world’s statements for some time now. You just have to have them and everybody knows. That you’re from there. From the world. And this is when you kind of force it.
It’s the same with people – the statement we started from.
Yet again a statement, yes. “Do you wanna be the same as everybody else?”, a great friend asked me in my pursuit of a “famous” pair of sneakers. “F no!”, I responded obviously. And I got these babies. Randomly. And nothing is random, anyway.
The friend? The friendship happened so genuinely that this is the first time that I get to realise just how genuine it all has been. And supposed to be in life.
Instead of finding yourself and finding the clothes (and shoes) that will take you places, you let the clothes (and the shoes) to take you places. You let yourself be guided by them. Sort of. To fit in.
But why would you? Don’t. Have fun! Fun!
Great, now I’m never getting these.
Straight face emoji.
But maybe i’m getting these though, you know?
Though, I never actually liked these. Ok, maybe only when All Saints wore them. But I never liked bandage dresses either. No “Ok, maybe only when…” here.
But oh, when I like something! I stare.
Why get the “what everybody has” anyway? I guess it’s easier. It skips the starring part. But then where’s the fun?
Let your mind be free and let it be.
