Today I was thinking about fashion and style. We all have our role models and our inspiration sources but when it comes to personal style I can't help but think the struggle between inspiration and imitation. In a world where fashion is one of the most profitable industries the brands are in a constant “war” as to who will launch the best collection (which changes rapidly- a smart policy to feed the never-ending need to renew our wardrobe) . Ok, so most people would agree that rarely any of us will reinvent the “wheel” of fashion. But what defines style after all? For me, one of the many definitions of style, is the ability to wear a piece in such a way that other people will say “why didn’t I think about it”? It could be a very simple and basic piece but with your personal interference in the slightest details, it becomes “yours”. Like a shirt worn backwards, or a skirt tied up on the side, or a shirt dress pulled to an “off the shoulder” style. Unlimited options.
Don’t go with the flow. Be your own inspiration. Somewhere in between our hectic days and relaxing nights, or our fashion crushes and the “can’t be bothered” moods, there is always room for innovation.
P.S Special thanks to Mrs. Elpida for the amazing handmade purse. I love it!!
