Fashion Fashion VS. Vintage

Style? What is it? Is is just a ” generic” combination of “season must have”  pieces ” dictated” by Fast Fashion giants? Do we still have a chance to be truly independent and individual in our style or we just automatically copy looks from our favourite fashion mags and bloggers these days? Well, it is rather sad to see a beautiful girls wearing THE SAME clothes and shoes, jewellery and make up, being just another soldier in a faceless army of ” no style fashion”. Believe me, it is still possible to be different even wearing high street pieces, you just don’t have to be scared to be yourself! Fashion is all about expressing yourself, so go nuts, get off the flow and declare your style independence! Rely only on your own taste and imagination, don’t let anyone to impose “style rules” on you.  It is time to bring your individuality into the mainstream trends and break the barriers of ” allowed” and prohibited. No need to spend a fortune, you can very successfully incorporate your old clothes into a hot new look. My today’s outfit is a good example of it. My advise to anyone who wants to look gorgeous without breaking the bank – just invest in key pieces that you gonna be able to wear for years ! 
This H&M jeans skirt was bought when I was still attending music college, that’s even before my crazy uni years! This skirt brings so many great memories and only goes to show how amazing some pieces may look throughout the years –  every time I wear it I am asked “wow, where is this from? is it designer? 
Next is my “GAGA”  style structured shoulder leather jacket from New Look that I got 3-4 years ago – it is still incredibly hot and stylish . Not to mention a classic Chanel flap bag ( this one, however, almost got me into bankruptcy, but hey, it was worth it!) It’s been around for so many decades but it magically turns any outfit into something special. So, my conclusion is – be creative and buy more vintage pieces that you can mix and match in future, be cooler and… wiser than other ” plastic” fashionistas!
