EVA_SCHON 's Thoughts:

Born into communist Czechoslovakia, I did not know how does it feel to flick through the Vogue magazine. I did not have the options to go shopping to the mall or vintage stores. There was very limited choice of garments. No options to be unique or innovative. Everyone looked the same. Everyone was wearing very similar ensembles. This conformity and uniformity was the jailer of peoples‘ fashion freedom and the true enemy of growth. Only a few people dared to be different. Luckily, my mother was one of them. Back then she made most of my clothes by sawing or painting on fabrics. Through her creations, I could feel like a princess dressed in beautiful dresses.

As time went on, fall of communism occurred. Suddenly people could travel into foreign countries and buy those colorful and eccentric clothes. They could discover endless options of clothes and styles, however, not many of them did. This uniformity was actually somehow convenient for them. During the communism era they behaved according to socially acceptable standards for too long and it really changed their thinking. And even afterward, their minds were still too conformed.

In my teen age, I got bored by ordinary things and dull clothes. All I wanted was to pull the rug out from under the establishment. I wanted to dress quirky, bizarre, extravagant, bold and unique. I was looking for unconventional use of clothes and wanted to bring something new and fresh. And as I liberated from the standards, I found that my presence automatically liberated others.

So what makes someone the STYLISH SOLE these days? I think the key is to follow your visions and stay true to yourself. Keep walking tall and be confident in what you wear. Leave your comfort zone and try to push the envelope. Be innovative, playful and inspire others! And have fun with fashion! That’s what I’m trying to do.

beautiful outfit! vintage perfection! i know exactly what you mean about communism. my grandparents and father had to escape from communist hungary in 1956, because my grandfather had been a freedom fighter in the revolution against communism. they went through a lot of hardships back there, but were able to freely express themseles in america. this was such a touching write up. i hope you win!

It was sad but people back then didn't complain. They somehow liked it that way. Strange, huh? Communism brought some good things too.. everyone got a job, apartment for free, people were equal, no crime etc. But yes, uniformity and comformity was one of the sad things about it. Thanks for the compliment and faving, girl!

S_agapoxxx on October 14
My aunt is from the Czech republic and she tells me similar stories - I find it fascinating yet so sad that you couldn't express yourself through clothes for such a long time. Oh - and I have faved this pic by the way!

you look great! I did some traveling to communist countries as a young woman and I know what you mean. Dressing up is not just covering your body, it's a way to think and a way to live. So I think that the uniformity was some kind of acceptance. You where very lucky to have a dreamer as your mom and a rebel in that cense.

Thanks, Movito! You totally got my point.. as you said, dressing up is the way we think and live.
