{The Essence} of Style

            STYLE is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma..
         fashion is something that comes after style.” - john fairchild

Happy Wednesday!! I hope the week is going well so far, I've had coldness and sunny weather so far, like a roller coaster ride of forecasts, lets see what today brings. I love Helena Bonham Carter, she's always out there, unique and best of all - always herself!! We lack that - originality & being who we are. It's wear this, do this and it gets boring, I need expression, individualism, uniqueness or I get a little twitchy!! We look down at others for what they wear, but maybe really, we are jealous because they have the guts and freedom to be who they are and enjoy it! I liked this quote, just because it goes against what fashion mags tell us, what 'stylists' tell us, that to be in fashion or look good we have to be wearing the latest clothes of some designer, but I think style does have to come first, you have to be able to look and say that trend doesn't suit me or stand out and not follow. I don't believe they know everything anyways, their only popular because people buy what their 'selling'. So, I say..dress up, look sharp, wear whatever the heck you want to wear. It's the designers & people who do this that will go on to be forever stylish!!

Have a sweet day lollipops!!

  1. Helena Bonham Carter is just so cool and totally doesn't seem to try. I saw her at an airport once (getting a budget flight incidentally) and she was kind of crazy in a good way!

  4. : ) Yes, I like that I am left wondering where she got the idea for her attire, than just seeing the same old stuff come down the red carpet. She is a true artist in every way : )

  7. She can certainly pull off this stylishly humorous look! And, I agree we should dare to be stylish everyday! I also agree that we should put our signature on everything we choose to wear! It is the "YOU" in unique that makes it your own!
