Red lips


What am I talking of? Red lips of course. Nothing is sexier and more sensual than red lips. They demand attention focus eyes on your face, make you seem more intriguing. They can make up your make-up and make you seem styled even if you're not wearing any other make up. They are sultry and gorgeous.

The only annoying thing is that you constanly have to carry your lisptick around, as as soon as you drink or eat something it will look splotchy and gross. Then again what are Douglas testers there for? Even better I have decided is dark red. It gives it that extra vamp kick and makes you even more mysterious. Also if you don't have naturally full lips you can just fake a bit if you apply a bit over and outline them with a contouring pencil. Just make sure you do it neat. Also always carry around your hand-mirror, to check there's nothing on your teeth. Then again by the amount of selfies we are taking today we would notice soon anyway. Atough just remeber to delete that selfie ;)

Blue unity

Blue. Blue is the color of the sky, ocean, the most popular eye color. Pale blue so sophisticated, dark blue is elegant, but most strinking is cobalt blue. It's one of those colors which suits everyone. Dark hair., ginger, blonde or balck. If you're pale, tan or dark skinned. Wether you're full figured or slender. You might be thinking how is that such a big deal? Well, think about it. How rare is it that a color looks good on all, especially such a bold one. How often is there fashion equality?

 I mean fashion is obviously a superficial world and I have been all about how to express yourself through colors and clothes. Sadly I have come to realize that today we criticize ourselves too strongly. We say only tan people can wear shorts and the color white. You have to be skinny for jeggins and short for heels So I can't wear heels because I'm tall? Wear my favortie color in winter when I'm pale? Why do we still judge so strongly? It's 21st century after all.  Designers make shoes only in certain sizes, tops and dresses with specific cuts. How often is it really that something is designed that every woman can wear? Converse come to mind and sweaters... but otherwise?

The answer is cobalt blue. It's a color to embrace and I think everyone of us should own a piece in that color. Because it is a piece of equality and can therefore symbolize unity. It is a chance at peace in the fashion world, something not even the bitchiest can insult. I love it. It's so peaceful, so striking and no one can really hate it. Blue- freedom

We will always be here

While time seems to be going by at snail speed at the moment the only thing getting me happy are the new winter/fall collections. But I have to admit it's very hard for me saying goodbye to my summer clothes. Those pastel colored pants, wedges and sandals, shorts, hippie dresses and wide cut tank-tops. All the dark colors and rain are basically asking for depressions. Autumn depressions setting in, call the fashion police. The person who said "Yes now I can finally wear 90% of my wardobe again" What is wrong with you?! Who has more sweaters than shorts and tank tops? 

I hate long pants, I love feeling the wind around my legs, even if it does mean constantly having to shave them. The freeness of summer being able to wear whatever and not needing a jeacket on top. You can't even see necklaces or bracelets underneath these thick jackets and hoodies. Bright make up looks out of place on the pale skin and my hair is hanging listless because there is no humidity to make it fuffy and wavy. But now sadness won't get you further in life, sadly. And while lately all I've wanted to do is close my eyes and hide in my bed, blanket pulled over my head with my laptop and movies, I know I can't do that. Life goes on and even when everything seems too much we have to go on. 

Lately I have even been so sick of everything, I commited the greatest fashion crime of all, I spent all week wearing jogging pants or pyjamas. I know. It was bad. My friends were looking at me with eyes saying "Oh god, what up?" Life's up, but I'm down. While they're comfy, I had to admit they don't really make you feel better. Avoiding the mirrors because you look that bad... yeah, not a good feeling. Seeing your reflection in cars, windows and glass doors and thinking "Who is that person?" Having people look at you and know it's not envy, or compliments going through their mind. So I finally pulled myself up and starting dressing normally again. Well, normal for me anyways and I it did the trick. My confidence, walk and attitude was back. It's not arrogance but the knowledge that haters going to hate and there's always going to be haters but that I'm over them. I feel myself when I'm wearing bright colors, or extravagent pants, Doc Martens and heels, Smoky eyes and red lips. When I feel heads turning because I look like something misplaced to be walking her dog on the street. But that's life and I won't be forgotten. I won't let myself be forgotten, I'm not going to forget myself and my clothes are the things which can bring me back. Make me see who I can be, if I let myself. That's the hardets thing when seasons change, a new time starts and you're lost somewhere in between adn decisions have to be made and it's all too much. You need that one thing that keeps you grounded, reminds you who you are, brings memories and strength back, makes you feel confident and ready to face the world. Fashion is that for me and probably also for you if you're reading this. So always remeber we fashionistas will hold together no matter what adn there's always something and someone to keep you looking forward.
