Hey my lovely friends! So I know that style or fashion is a really subjective thing - I might like really different styles, looks or colors than you do. I personally think that fashion has to be provocative to succeed and to really stand out - provocative, yes. But not in a way of dressing like my grand-mother (though she's a really fashionable Lady!), but much more in a way that leaves you speechless when you see it. I mean I'm a big fan of shocking outfits, or shocking make-up or whatever - as long as it suits you. As long as the look looks authentic and real on the person who wears it. (Don't get me wrong - I'd be the first one telling you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. But I guess you agree with me that some outfits will in fact look simply ridiculous.)
So scrolling through some Street-Style photos from the New York Fashion Week 2014, I found some really, let's call them "special-looking" shoots. So take a look and let me know what you think!
Well my lovely readers, I don't know about you. But where I live, it seems to be an impossible thing for men to find the right clothes or the right style. You will see a lot of young male citizens walking around in dirty old sneakers, baggys, trainer pants and an extra-long tee. Not because they wouldn't have the money to buy new shoes at least once in a year - no. They see shopping as a waste of time (and money) and they don't care about the way they look at all.
And please not that I'm just talking about things I lately observed in my environment (and it isn't only true for men!).
Personally I think that that's a shame. I love it when guys know what looks good on them, I love it when they take care of their clothes, and I love it when guys try to be up to date when it comes to fashion. Of course it doesn't have to be in an exaggerated way, but I guess you know what I mean.
You know what's really one of the hardest things about being a teenage-student-fashion-blogger? The money. Or better: The money you don't own.
And you know what's really one of the hardest things about living in Switzerland? The prices. And the stores.
Now take a look at all the famous, really well-known Bloggers there are outside. Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad), Shea-Marie (Peace Love Shea), Aimee Song (Song of Style) and so on. What do they have in common? They all wear expensive clothes. Or at least clothes that are too expensive for a college student like me. And imagine that I live in Zurich. Switzerland! The famous island of high prices!
So don't get me wrong - I absolutely adore these famous bloggers. All I'm saying is that it is tremendously hard to be a fashion blogger if you don't have that much money. In fact, the problem is pretty basic:
Hey my beautiful readers! When you're reading this, it's probably the 5th of February 2014 and it's MY 18th BIRTHDAY! I feel like I've been waiting for this moment for 17 years now!
Guys I'm finally free! Theoretically free.
Okay fine I'm not really free.
But anyways, it's been eighteen years now. Eighteen! Time goes by so fast!
Though I don't believe that anything will change, I'm really happy that I'm finally considered as an "adult". Did something change for you at your 18th birthday? How did you party? Let me know in the comments, I'm really interested!
All I can say is that for me, it is a really overwhelming feeling. I'm going to enjoy this special day to the fullest, and so I will the next year! Hopefully.
I really want to put more time into blogging - lately it was so hard because I worked on my final "college project" for the last five months now. We basically created a movie about the "Safety/Security at the Zurich Airport", and we wrote a 162-pages book about it. Believe me - in the last five months I felt like a robot. "Sleep" has been a foreign word since then.
To celebrate my "comeback" I really wanted to show you some pictures from my brand new Instagram-Account! Take a look :)
