Fashion can be so cool and yet at other times it can be horrifying. Have you seen the hairy chest swimsuits? They do look good and maybe I'll buy one myself, but how many folks will buy them and why would they? Well, surprisingly, there are those who walk to the beat of a different drum, and that's what makes this world such a wonderful place...right? Different drum beats...right?
For example, a guy wearing a green jacket with a bunch of hands hugging him, may seem a bit freakish, but it goes to show that he might enjoy a helping hand, while the other guy might think it's totally cringe-worthy. Either way, it looks like beauty is in the eye of the beholder, that's why you always have to be ready for the fashion police, who will inevitably, try to tell you that you're not in style. All you have to do is show them the hand, because they don't understand!
"As a fashion designer, I was always aware that I was not an artist, because I was creating something that was made to be sold, marketed, used, and ultimately discarded." ― Tom Ford
Tom Ford makes a good point with his infamous quote above, but I relish the writings of the great Oscar Wilde.
“You can never be overdressed or over-educated.” ― Oscar Wilde
“Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” ― Oscar Wilde
Oscar Wilde had a wild way about him and his style was interesting and provocative for his time. I strongly suggest checking out the movie, "The Picture of Dorian Gray," which is based off of his novel. And as far as the book is concerned, it is literature's greatest study of vanity and hedonism.
Mr. Wilde was super talented, extraordinary in every way, and it's certainly worth your time to read his marvelous works.
Even Albert Einstein had a sense of uncanny style by what he wrote below.
“Even on the most solemn occasions I got away without wearing socks and hid that lack of civilization in high boots” ― Albert Einstein
And last, but not least, Gerard Way's quote below is pure gold my friends! It gets me back in touch with my inner dark emo!
“So how was Christmas for you guys? Did you all get lots of nice black t-shirts?” ― Gerard Way
Besides, life is too short to be wearing boring clothes, so live each day as a fashion show and let the world be your runway.
Until next time, keep reaching for the stars!
