In my earlier teens I did not care for brands. H&M was my heaven, and you could find me there each first Saturday of the month to see what I could spend my little allowance on. When I grew older and was legally old enough to get a student job, the world of Zara opened and my love of clothes grew more. That sounds superficial, I am aware, but where some of my friends would spend their savings on party entrance fees, I spend mine on a pretty new dress. I was never one for dancing and drinking anyways. I’m 20 now, and finally feel like I have a wardrobe I can be proud of. Sure it’s incomparable to the dressings of let’s say the ladies behind Atlantic-Pacific or Wendy’s Look book, but quantity is not what it’s about for me. I think you might have noticed that if I wear jeans it’s always the same jeans, or that my little black dress is always the same one. I’ve been told by some that my remixing is what makes my blog so fun to read, and that’s how I too feel about my three-doors-wide closet. I can get much pleasure from dressing up and throwing my clothes all over the room, from twirling in front of the mirror to test the swung of a skirt. In my wildest dreams I would become stylist… or a shop owner. But truth is, I still need to make up my mind about what direction I really want to go in life. And time is ticking.
I never cared for brands, I just wanted to have fun with my clothes and figure out how to express myself through my looks. But then I was introduced to the preppy world of J.Crew and I totally got sucked into it. I know the brand has a name, but would you just look at all the gorgeous colors, fun prints and amazing styling. Sure, it’s friggin’ expensive and Old Navy carries items with similar prints at much better prices, but I cannot help myself. And I did it again. I wanted a blue lace dress since I saw a girl wear one on campus last fall. And they had one. Leopard lace, mind you. And it’s my birthday coming… in a month. So it’s totally justified, right? No? Hmm…. It sucks when you realize you’re being a bit too materialistic… .
