So how to make the "right" Choice in Fashion? I mean, what is Fashion? What is Style and what is Beauty?
The worst you can do to find out is to google it! Me, going through those websites which show a lot of little black hearts, starbucks coffees, cars, foodis, selfies and just too much pink, wondering: Nothing of this seems to be glamours. And I have this quote in my mind I read recently:
“Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers. And style is what you choose.”
Well, indeed when Lauren talks about "four times a year" than she is talking at least about that kind of High Fashion even besides Chanel. Four Fashion seasons a year would be a blessing for most of this fashion-monsters I am looking at while clicking through my google-search-list.
“It’s better to have fewer things of quality than too much expendable junk.”
Thank you Rachel Zoe! But Primark probably makes all of us think a little diffrent. We can go with the latest trends and dress up diffrently for any Party and still have enough money left to pay for our Cocktails - Thanks to Primark and others! - If Lauren Hutton really ment what she said, her ears probably start to shake right now. When a four seasons a year already offers a Choice in Fashion what would she say now having 52 seasons a year? This makes one Season a Week, by the way
It were characters like Carrie Bradshaw in Sex&City who learned us we can be anyone we like to be as long we wear the right things - And in case you do not wear "the right things" and look like shit: Throw it away or give it to donations. It only has been 3 or 5 Euro, so what the hell?!
Still, you probably wouldn't find Carrie shopping at Primak. I mean, do you remember in Season 3 in "Fake it until you make it" when Samanta and Carrie were trying on counterfeit bags in L.A.?
"I should have liked them. But staring into the trunk, they didn’t look elegant. They looked cheap. Even if everyone else thought it was real, I’d always know my bag came from a trunk deep in the valley”
The way Carrie describes her feelings about those bags is like she doesn't want everything - she wants the some Fashion - Fashion, which she can love - Pieces she loves and she is willing to spent her money on:
“I like my money right where I can see it…hanging in my closet.”
Carrie Bradshaw who gave us all those easy words which scream "Fuck you" in the face of people who want to tell you what to do, like "Save your Money, kid"
Take it to the next level and you know why I love Ethical Fashion: "I sould have liked them. But staring on Zaras Fashion, the clothes doesn't look elegant to me. They look cheap. Even if everyone else doesn't recoginze, I'd always know my bag came form a women in a Sweat-Shop deep in pain."
