North West Is Going Whatever Direction She Dreams Of Going

January 30, 2020

Anyone’s artistic expression should be celebrated. Since we’re all going somewhere and need shoes to do so, let’s all have a party.

Like we used to, back in the days, when we were 7 or something. Either in our siblings’ shoes or ours. We didn’t think much, we just did stuff and sometimes that kind of state, particularly, is when we’re most creative. Imagine using that freedom now, when we’ve all grown up or something and we get to do real stuff for real people. Starting with ourselves.

My point is, North West is mixing stuff and the mixes are pretty fun. Because she’s having fun. It’s her now, but it is any kid, for that matter, anytime. Maybe even us, tan-ta-naaam! Kids are sometimes the most inspirational when talking about style. And freedom. They don’t, yet, care in any way of any social judgement whatsoever and, who knows, maybe they never will.

It seems like it’s cool to mock anything Kanye or Kim do nowadays, I still don’t follow and have never really watched the Kardashians show, but, luckily, it becomes cooler and cooler nowadays not to judge anyone. Why should anyone be entitled to judge what anyone else is doing as long as it’s not harming (obviously) anyone? You watch your stuff and I’ll watch mine.

Having a sex tape gone viral in order to become famous for being famous is definitely not what I like from any point of view, but it doesn’t have to be. It is also true that an incredible following in that direction – not the sex tape (or who knows) direction, but the looks and moods and style, to say the least – has blown up everyone’s expectations, but one doesn’t have to follow it if one doesn’t want to. Of course, character and brains and education matter and it’s easy to manipulate when any of those is trembling, but I guess this is a tricky thing that’s forever existed.

Just like the idea of having the courage to be yourself, no matter what that self is. Tricky. And, in the end, we all know what Kim did, but so does she. You just gotta know what you do. I know I know what I do.

I still believe in change, don’t you? But this is a completely different story.

And what Kanye did to Kim’s style… Invented it, basically… Or discovered it within her. Is it only me or you, too, think this is pretty romantic? But this is what Kanye in 2006 was like. Now he’s only romantic with her? Hm.

Talking about change…

Regardless of anything a grownup does, the artistic sense in a kid doing her thing is always so cool, it makes you think turquoise feathers on slippers at home are not so cheesy after all. When in the company of embellished matching coloured flowers on (blue?) fishnets. I meaaaan. You know what I mean?!

And maybe we should not only learn from our mistakes, but from anyone’s around us. The even better news is that we could all learn from anyone’s freedom also. So, in the end, it’s all just a matter of choices.

Like wearing different shoes is.


Pete here says Make Kanye 2006 Again. Kanye circa 2011, though, would still be pretty cool. North’s style kind of cool. The face someone does when I start talking about Jay-Z and Kanye’s Watch The Throne album, ooh!

In your mailbox would be ideal, yet in your e-mail is pretty close, yay!

Hey, this is Cristina Pavelescu wearing a music cassette sweater, decoding (life) style and writing from wherever, yet always living in OZ, a world I invite you into. To smile in front of our screens (and live one day), put any kind of questions, answer in writing (or imagination) and marvel at fashion which is, in fact, style.
