WEIRD & WONDERFUL: Do what you want when it comes to fashion.

WEIRD & WONDERFUL: Do what you want when it comes to fashion.

The great thing about fashion is, we have creative control - and that’s exactly what makes it so goddamn special.

I recently attended a ‘fashun' event where I was countlessly asked the questions:

‘What’s on trend this season?’

‘What are your fashion dont’s?’

‘What colours are in?’

And I answered the same every time. 

‘I don’t really care’.

Not because it’s not, or shouldn't be, important to someone, but because it’s just absolutely not what fashion is about for me. 

I want every single woman and man out there to be able to put on whatever the hell they want and wear it with confidence. Because it makes them feel good. Because when you wear that dress you want to take on the world. Because those brogues make you feel a million bucks - and those sweatpants? They see you through each and every single day. 

I want to wear summer dresses with my oversized, unordinary Celine Lola Sunglasses - so I will. And I’ll do it with confidence - because it’s for me and no-one else. So if you want to clash prints? Do it. Or you fancy wearing brown and black or socks with sandals? Then just DO it.

It's okay to be weird and wonderful at the same time.

WEIRD & WONDERFUL: Do what you want when it comes to fashion.

I know we all have certain styles that won’t suit us, that perhaps we can’t always wear what we see on the catwalks, even though we might like to. 

But when you look at something and fall in love with it, that’s when it’s meant to be. That’s when you say screw what anyone else thinks, this is my time and I’m going to look bloody great, thank you very much. 

For a moment, be brave, put the media’s ideals behind you - forget what you’re ‘supposed’ to conform to and go for it. I doubt highly, that’ll you’ll regret it.

You are SO right Meg, I stopped following trends long ago. It was expensive and most of the time, wasn't my style! I now where clothes that I know make me feel great, it makes a huge difference! Beautiful snaps lovely lady. Immy x

Oh I loved this post Meg! It'a so nice to hear someone say they dress for themselves and that's how we develop our personal style too, so why shouldn't we?! x

Absolutely right Meg! I feel like I let trends influence what I buy but I think that's only because I get a lot of my inspiration from other people, whether on the street or from social media/blogs. But I know that I would never buy something just because it's on trend and that if I find something in a last seasons sale rack or in a bag of hand-me-down clothes from my cousin, that catches my eye or would go great in the outfit I'm mentally picturing, I'll sure as hell wear it!!

I feel the most comfortable, and the most 'me', in my, what I call, granny-chic-esque ensembles. Or, a simple pair of jeans and a t-shirt. I stopped following trends a long, long time ago, in part because I just wasn't very good at it. I found that copying a mannequins outfit made me feel stupid - I looked like someone else had dressed me. I was never able to rock that. But, slowly, I've found my style. And, although I'm not expecting to win any awards, it's me. It's so good to read this kind of post - and, only makes you more of an inspiration to me. Not just because you're so frikkin' cool - but because it's you. Down to earth, sticking to her values, Meg. Your outlook and ability to navigate this crazy world we live in will always inspire me. All the love - THANK YOU for such a beautiful post.
All our love, Caitie, and of course, Soda xxx

What a great post Megs - I know that my style is far from fashionable at times, I just wear what I feel comfortable & happy in and hope that I look ok too!

Completely agree, no one should stress over what clothes they put on their body there's far bigger things to worry about. Wish everyone could be comfortable in their own skin but it's not really that easy is it

I haven't bought any clothes in months, so I'm really not on the trends, but I completely agree with having your own sense to follow and being weird with it when you want to - also these photos, I've said it loads, but OMG I LOVE
