Be You Or Be Them? Duh.

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?

What?

As in don’t struggle to find the white Adidas sneakers just to fit in the standards.

What?

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.

What?

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.

Post Holiday Life Aaa!

It’s Monday.

It is a wall of a kind in the background and I am dancing with joy. For the pictures. Because this is what the camera does to you. It makes you smile.

You go in the bathroom now (that is if you are at work) and make yourself a picture in the mirror. You’ll feel like smiling. Stupidly. Fun! Or you won’t. If not, just… Just do it. F*ck it! Have a little fun with yourself. Just start with the man in the mirror. You know you want to.

2 minutes, a short break with my colleague Alex (Oh, hello there! :D) and some laughing later, the pictures are done and the LOOK OF THE DAY is back. Now, on Oz.

It’s up to you most, the stuff that you do and the stuff that happens to you. It’s not easy to start and just the idea of something getting started can sometimes be a hustle. But sometimes the idea itself and the thought of the idea are harder than the thing that were the idea and the thought of the idea about.

Sometimes, it can even be taking the picture in the bathroom I told you earlier about or asking your colleague to take pictures of you for the site you are working on that needs constant work and constant thought and… And! Constant action. So, action!

So, Alex!

Now get your groove on with your own action!

But before it, wear your new, mono coloured tee, your old, white sneakers and a wicked skirt (or pants). The glasses? The coolest and comfiest you’ve got!

If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change!
