A: Has she gone mad? She's a bride and she's wearing mom jeans, a plain white tee, and a long veil with suns on it!
B: I guess she has. A bride is supposed to be all pretty and stuff, no? She has to wear a long beautiful white dress and smile all night.
A: Absolutely! Why isn't this one smiling? Is she pissed off at something?
B: This is her wedding day, what's there to be pissed off at?
A: Maybe she doesn't love her husband that much.
B: Yeah that sounds logical. I mean getting married is a woman's lifetime wish and she's supposed to be thrilled!!!
A: Rumor has it she's got a boyfriend of her own.
B: Oh yeah? She must be waiting for him to come and rescue her and be her knight in shining armor.
A: But she doesn't look like the fairytale kind of girl. I mean look at her outfit, she's not even wearing a dress.
B: Look Look! That must be her boyfriend on the phone and it seems like he stood her up. *giggles*
A: Why did she even cheat on her husband? Is he not rich enough?
B: He must not be THAT good in bed.
A: Yup, that's the most logical answer!
There are no rules if you work in the fashion industry. Whether you're a designer, blogger, or an entrepreneur, you never have to abide by a certain dress code. You can show up to work wearing whatever the F you want.
You never have to say:"This is a statement item, I can't wear THAT to work."
If you do work in the fashion world, would you wear this denim jacket from La Terre est Folle to work?
You'd be insane if you don't.
Power: Ability to direct or influence the behavior of others or the course of events.
Empower: Make someone stronger and more confident especially in controlling their life and claiming their rights.
Combining these two terms in one sentence is very powerful: Power to Empower, yet we don't see it very often. It really does require strength and confidence in yourself to support other women. We see a lot of women with powerful positions in this world, and other women who are spectators of empowerment but are too weak to do so themselves. Empowering one another is easier said than done, it shouldn't be, but it is how it is.
Many may think that when you "empower", you lose some of your power. Their justification? The other person improves and maybe, just maybe, gets "better than them". This is absolutely stupid, they don't know that empowering other women reflects your inner strength and confidence. Let's say that that person does get "better than them", it shows that they don't have a problem with that happening because nobody even compares to them.
And that's how it should be, no woman should ever compare, or be compared to another woman.
My wish? That women stop competing, and start empowering one another because each female has different strengths and weaknesses than the other fellow females, and comparing/competing is of no use.
If all our strengths are combined, magical things can happen to this world.
I won't be talking about how to transition your outfit from daytime to a crazy night out. I'll be advising you how to come up with a comfy outfit that fits your entire day.
So have you ever had a super busy day ahead where you had to be absolutely comfortable but wanted to look stylish at the same time?
This long day can be classes from 8:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m, or for example, classes/work followed by a night out with your friends. It can also be a road trip or anything of that sort. So choosing what to wear is the last thing you wanna think about ( but you think about it anyways).
No worries. I got your back. Here's an example of something I assembled and the tips to dress similarly:
First- A Statement Item
It should be something that people first look at when they look at you. I chose this oversized blazer from H&M because it has a vintage vibe that works for both, university and a casual dinner with friends.
You can choose an oversized vest or a bomber jacket, whatever catches the eye.
Second- Comfy Denim Jeans
DON'T wear skinny jeans. You're gonna be out all day and the last thing you need is something squeezing your skin and belly.
Instead, wear mom jeans or a cigarette cut like mine here from Bershka. Make sure they fit you right because contrary to common belief, these cuts aren't supposed to be "baggy".
Why denim and not normal pants (non-denim)?
1) They're so versatile and can be paired with everything.
2) They don't get dirty easily, or at least it's harder for them to show.
Third- Dem Shoes
Rule #1: DON'T WEAR HEELS. Especially if you're a uni student.
If your outfit will look good with heels, bring them with you in a bag and change into them at the end of the day. But if you don't have a car, carrying an extra bag can be a hassle sometimes.
My advice? Wear platform shoes. They can be sneakers like mine here from Superga, or they can be platform sandals or something. But stay away from fancy heels that make you wish you're dead.
Fourth- The Hair
If you really wanna complete your look, do your hair in a way that flatters your outfit ( and face). It may be a high/low ponytail, top/low bun, braids or just simply wearing it down.
This is so crucial. But why?
For instance, I don't think my outfit here would've had this 90s grunge vibe if my hair was let down because that would have given it a girly/feminine side. Are you feeling me here?
Fifth- The Luggage
A backpack. Duh.
You're gonna be carrying items like uni material, your makeup bag, snacks, and so much more, so I don't think they'll fit in a handbag. And even if they did, your hand will hurt from the weight.
Just make sure to buy a backpack you think is stylish and not your 8th grade backpack.
