Happy New Year everyone! So today I decided to start this blog and share my thoughts on my own fashion sense, the music that I love, and my time living in New York.
When walking the streets of New York, you really do get the idea of the “melting pot”. Different attitudes, different clothing, different people. I love seeing what other people’s ideas of fashion are. To me being a fashionista doesn’t necessarily mean being up to date with the latest designers or the latest trends, its making your own trends. I find being your own person is what makes a fashionista. Isn’t that how a trend is made? Finding what others think is different and rocking it?
Doing your own thing doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look out for Vogue’s newest trends, but it is best to meet somewhere in the middle. When I look at the late greats who inspire me, they are mostly people who pushed boundaries, created their own idea of what “fashion” is, and made a name for themselves through becoming one with their time. Case in point, Edie Sedgwick, Rita Hayworth, and Brigitte Bardot. A few modern day celebrity style-cons would be Rachel Bilson, Victoria Beckham, Sofia Coppola, SJP, and my favorite Nicole Richie.
Music is another outlet for myself. Just like clothing, it is a way of expressing yourself. I have to admit most people can guess that type of music I love by the way I dress. I have to admit plenty of the greatest tunes and clothing trends did come from the years of peace, love, and happiness. The clothing is making its biggest comeback as we speak.
Harper’s Bazaar has named Flower Power as one of their top trends for 2012.
A couple of my favorite Hippie looks have been from Emilio Pucci and Altuzarra. I especially loved Pucci’s 70′s inspired lace-up suede thigh high boots in Spring 2011.
