STYLE CONSCIOUS, NOT STYLE OBSESSED
CHANEL IMAN IS ALWAYS STYLISH BUT NEVER LOOKS TREND OBSESSED (LOVE HER!!)
Trends are fun...I think that's one thing we can all agree. What's not fun about staying up on the latest trends is when they become our OBSESSION. Magazines become our Bible & celebrities become our gods...uhh NO. I have one God & one Bible and trends don't define me. Nor should they define you. Being trend obsessed in an attempt to express individuality makes you just like everyone else. There are billions of people in the world & at least 50% are up on every HOT trend and rockin the same exact thing you’re rockin. Doesn't that make you less of an individual & more of a copy? I think so.
Don't get me wrong. I LOVE FASHION. I think looking like you have style & sense is necessary. But I am by no means trend obsessed. I wear what I want, I follow trends here and there, but I always add my own seasoning to the main dish. A trendsetter is not someone who wears what everyone else wears. A trendsetter wears what the average trend obsessed individual never would have come up with. This blog is my idea of style…fashion with a twist. I promise to make the trend I choose mean something to you, so you don't feel like a clone of the style obsessed girl standing next to you. Feel me?
STUDS are “IN” fashionistas. Studded vests, studded bangles, studded ballet flats.
Get carried away, but not too carried away. ONE or TWO jaw dropping studded
pieces are enough. You don't want to look like an asteroid...and you will... if you overdo it. Especially if your studs are gold.
S.T.U.D. = Surrender to UR Destiny. Stay true to yourself, stay true to your style, and do what it takes to become whatever you want to become. When you're wearing your studded vest & the girl across from you is wearing a studded piece too, just remember you're an original...with your own destiny.
I love my Dolce Vita Studded Flats.
