A Passion for Fashion … and Maybe More?

by | Mar 26, 2021 | Lifestyle

Everyone has that one thing that they love, dancing, math, writing. That thing that they could do for hours and feel like minutes. That drives them to be their true selves. For me, it is fashion, or somewhere around there, maybe like a category? Art? I don’t think anyone ever really knows their true passion, the one that they will love forever and always. It changes, like the wind, like the seasons. It is never a constant in your life. It is changing every 5 years or even every week. Like going from Math to Fashion, from Fashion to Illustration, from Illustration to Singing, and back again. But that change is what keeps you motivated, if it were all the same you would be bored, you would be staring at the sky wondering if you hate what you love. You would be stuck in a cage. 

 

You can love a category, Art for example, like me. Or you can be all over the place, never like being the same. I have loved fashion for as long as I can remember, and it wasn’t forced upon me. Like most kids when they are young, they love what their parents love, or what others love. But as you get older, you discover other things. For me, I loved math, and I wanted to be a math teacher like my aunt and uncle. Since fifth grade, I have loved planning out my life, what college I want to go to, what job I want. So about a year ago when I realized that I wanted a job in business I immediately started planning out colleges, tuition, dorms, jobs, everything. Which sounds pretty strange considering I was only 12. But what I didn’t do was take my passion into consideration. I was good with numbers and being bossy, but I didn’t necessarily love it. So this year when I realized my dream job and passion had been sitting in front of me since I was 2, I was quick to make a life plan. Starting with me starting a fashion blog and ending with me being a manager for a big-time apparel company, traveling the world. 

 

What I did was narrow my vision, meaning my love for drawing faces, singing, and dancing all flew out the window. It wasn’t until today that I realized that I can love more than one thing. I can have a fashion blog and still take my singing classes on Mondays, and be in the dance elective at school, and continue to draw every afternoon. I don’t need to love one thing, and only that one thing. Just like your fashion sense you have to remember to be yourself, and not anyone else, you have to have an open mind and not care about what others think, you have to let yourself be open to change.

How Social Media Has Impacted Fashion Trends

How Social Media Has Impacted Fashion Trends

Every decade had its main fashion trends that stayed for the full 10 years, we all know 70’s hippy, 80’s neon, 90’s grunge, and y2k futuristic with a retro edge, but what about the 2010s. 2010 to 2012 was still y2k style, 2013 to 2016 was all boy bands, and then 2017 to 2019 were all repeats of the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s. It was all over the place, and so far 2021 hasn’t been any different, starting with y2k fashion, then the 90’s, and finally its own style with hints of both the 90s and ’00s.

Let Idiots Burn In Hell

Let Idiots Burn In Hell

When you are expressing yourself through fashion, people will comment on your outfit. And maybe you will take their opinions and think them through, cry, or just ignore them like the badass you are. Peoples opinions are like flies, buzzing around you and constantly annoying. On rare occasion, they will be helpful, but on the more realistic side, they are the most frustrating thing that can occur when it comes to fashion. Whether it is simple, “Your outfit is very bold,” with hints of disgust. Or the straight up, “What are you wearing?” The one sentence that can send you over the edge.
