At the risk of sounding conceited, I would like to think I’m channeling my inner Audrey Hepburn with this look, although making it a bit more modern. I guess many would say that this outfit is classy, flattering as the intention may be I don’t think it’s a liberal concept. A person once told me after I had my hair bleached that it looked cheap, “jeje”, trashy and not classy at all. I would be a hypocrite if I said I’m not an elitist, I could be sometimes. Most of all, I deeply regret calling some outfits of people “cheap” and “not classy”. Fashion is not about class. It is a form of art, whether it’s a Chanel gown or a tight mini dress with fishnets. Classy is only a parameter that a non-progressive, classist and bourgeois society thinks we should adhere to. Please do not be discouraged by these kinds of people. Why then should you suppress the real you just because of what “society” dictates how you should look like? Do you think Lady Gaga or Madonna would be the icons they are today if they stuck to “classy” and inhibited their creative & unique style?
So anyway, next time, before you start mouthing “classy”, think first. It doesn’t take much to combine designer items to make a pretty outfit that could be mediocre, creativity-wise while inexpensive, vintage or thrift shop-found stuff takes real talent and style to be put together to make an amazing look.
