This post, I wish you all to pay a little more attention to the written words.
Whatever I have written here today is a result of experience, awareness and realization over the past few years. It is something I myself deeply believe in, and wish to share with you all as well. I do not know how many of you all will understand what I'm trying to say..how many of you all will decipher the essence of it. But I am trying to share it with you, and all I wish is for you to make an attempt to absorb it :) ..
When you blindly follow trends, you are following somebody else’s idea of fashion, of self expression. Not your own. They are imposing their ideas on you in a way, and you follow it. Follow it without thinking or any kind of realization. Don’t do this. Try breaking out of that mould.. that way of thinking. If you’re a person who deeply believes in the art of fashion (yes, as commercialized as it is, fashion is an art), stop donning things just because they’re in vogue, because they’re popular culture. Wear it because you want to wear it, and not because you have to. Wear it because it defines YOU, your state of mind, and is an extension of your inner self. Only then will you be truly happy and content with what you’re wearing, with the way you're dressed, with the way you look.
Don’t chase fashion. Fashion is a set of ideas, a bunch of people tend to impose on you. Rather, follow style, because style is something you yourself create. You create your own style with your mind, body and heart. You put your soul into it. It’s an expression of the core you.
