Aphrodite 's Thoughts:

.Hello everyone!!!!=)

Hope you guys had a good day!!!!!=)

This was me some days ago when we had lunch (fish!).One of my favourite collections is Rochas. (Below pic is my favourite one in the collection) but instead of doing blue(green)silver, i did brown and beige and added the blue bag for some color and cat print to make the look mature.
A lady asked me today where i get the inspirations(photos) from, and i told her i’ll write about it here instead. Everybody has to have his/her own personal style, i believe that but sometimes you look around and see some looks and you tell yourself- “Now that’s me!” As if the designer (ofr the magazine people) knew exactly what you want to wear and what looks good on you-well, what suits you anyway. I have been seriously trying to develop my sort of own style for a few years and i’ve come to the point where i am sure what is ME and what is NOT ME. Trial and error, and you just have to try and try again until you get it, until you are sure that you are no longer lost or confused. And that’s the funny thing- the ME that i always try to look like is absolutely and happily lost and confused. I’m all over the place, i’m in small bubble where i run around and do the styles that make up the ME and also try new things i snatched from the outside which will eventually become official ME styles. But how do you know the look is “you”? I think it’s a 50-50 thing, what others think of it and what you feel about it. I think you know by now that even though i am grounded most days (and have to consider other factors other than my own desires and mood), i tend to wear things i really feel passionate about, like my turban and some outfits that many wouldn’t wear. I’m not trying to be a pain, just following my heart.=) And because you dont do that everyday, i mean going all the way, when you do, you feel really good, it affects your mood, the day and the people around you. ‘No, i did not order that. And no, if i did, you’d still need to take it back to the kitchen cuz it’s raw, i like my steak burnt and destroyed. But it’s your lucky day, i like my outfit so let’s just forgive and forget. Trot on, let’s get me my order which i hope, by now, you remember." Something like that.=) So what i do, i have an imaginary list of ME styles which i can always pick when i am in the shower planning the outfit(s) of the day. And i know them by heart. I dont need a board where i put photos to remind me. Then there’s the hunt. The hunt for my looks that somebody (like Sonia Rykiel and Stella McCartney) put together nicely for me, from the interent or the magazines in languages i cant really read.(Russian, Turkish-i collect magazines, i dont care if i cant read them!), just there somewhere, waiting for me to say “Now that is so ME!”. I would either copy the whole thing or ruin it to fit ME, that’s the fun part, when you mess it up and make it your own. That’s the inspirationYOU=the outfit. Sometimes it’s a hit sometimes it’s a miss but at the end of the day, it’s about you loving how you look and enjoying it and smiling when you come home and remove them one by one. And to be honest, the odd ones are the outfits i enjoyed the most.=) So yes, sorry, where do i get the inspirations. I check all the collections of the season (via style.com) and decide which trends i would follow, which collection to fave and which outfits i will do (and try to destroy!) I like many styles but i just pick the “Now that’s me!” ones. I think that is important. Sometimes when i have time, or when the man is too busy talking to his computer, i sit and draw, mixing the stuff i like and come up with an outfit depending on what i already have. There are a few sketches i can’t still wear because i dont have this right color or right length or yes, do’nt have that particualr item (which is in the Wish List). This outfit for example is inspired by Rochas but is already based on a drawing i did a few months ago. Sometimes from movies, places, people (mostly men) or simply the color of the chairs and tables and curtains in a restaurant!=) But most days i just throw things on really and hope for the best! And when nothing works, wear the turban!=)

So yes, i haven’t looked at the autumn ‘10 collections yet, i’m still enjoying SS10.=) But really, you just need to know your own style, stick to that, wander off a bit just for fun and listen to your heart.=) For some people these are just clothes and bags and shoes. JUST. But we know better, don’t we?=) That line is just an excuse, cuz they are either too lazy to try or too scared.=) If somebody told me “Oh, i cant be bothered to dress up.” i’d smile and say, “What’s wrong with you?” =) And lastly, like what i always write here- it’s supposed to be fun, so have fun!!!!!!!!!!! =)

PS- WE’D STILL BE GOING AROUND USING CAMELS AND STUFF IF THE MEN WHO INVENTED THE PLANE AND CAR DIDN’T TRY!!!!! CMON…=)

Have a good tuesday tomorrow everyone!=)

Love Love Kiss Kiss
