Would you want the Parisian look?
I was browsing online looking through Victoria Secret and Guess emails forcing me to their webpages to browse their latest fashion trends. Both Victoria Secret and Guess’ webpages had youthful attractive tanned and healthy female models sporting shorts and skin. Marciano, under the Guess Inc umbrella, was not quite as appealing… Parisian Chic the advertisement reads, classy, but wait a female (hopefully Parisian) model is posing… sadly not the best pose, clothes or hoes… I’d go as far to say she seems to have been placed in an outfit out of the Great Gatsby and is awaiting the lobotomy that is about to be scheduled for her. Those wide eyes that are far from being “dear in the headlights” and are closer to the fear seen in the eyes of a man about to meet their maker. or lobotomer.. lobotomy surgeon?
You need more than a pretty face and long legs to be a model, you must know how to work it, whenever the time is needed right in front of the camera.
Whenever you walk anywhere or do anything, you are sending a wave of energy and sharing your personality with others around you. You can speak a certain way, you can have a certain demeanor, the way you style your hair, even your choice of phone cover and especially the way you dress. The way you style yourself is the way you describe yourself to others.
Time and time again I have seen people with a similar fashion sense fall for one another. That is because your style is a way of showing your personality, likes, dislikes, age, financial and social status and much more than you would realize.
Now there are two things you can do to change up your style so that it describes you better. 1. Go to the mall and immediately change your style to best match what you feel describes you… (But that would be really expensive and this supposed to be LA for free)
or… 2. Use spring time as an incentive to help motivate you to begin cleaning as mentioned in a previous entry. Keep aside items like beads, metal studs, hooks, lace and buttons, things that you think could be of use in the future to style your current wardrobe. Cut apart shirts with lace, then you can use lace as a future craft supply. Add it to clothes or spray paint above the lace to get an imprint on a shirt to make a creative design.
Cutting through left over silk fabric to add to the inseams of a newly purchased jacket, stitching beads onto a plain white sun dress to make it stand out, adding metal studs to the back pockets of old jeans to give off a new punk vibe these are all ways to give your old clothes a unique and personal look. Using different touches of your own style to redesign something that you felt was plain or/& store bought.
Once you have sorted through your clothes, pack away what you no longer want and call 1-800-728-7825 to have the donation truck from your local Salvation Army come and retrieve your unwanted items.
Once a year in spring to organize myself, I sort through my old clothes and get rid of what I don’t need, This spring I remember the old proverb that sings true..
One man’s – or woman’s trash is another’s treasure
