Fashion. It is a simple word, isn’t? It makes us think of glitz and glam, of red carpets with beautiful women with tall slender legs walking betwixt a roaring crowd of gawkers and paparazzi. We think of the weird Prada costumes, of high fashion with clothes that would never make it in real life. And yet, these “fantasy” clothes eventually get watered down to the everyday clothes that you and I wear.
In a more practical sense, living in the fashion is looking good wherever you go. Nothing inherently wrong with that, though sure you could go overboard. The real question of being fashionable isn’t one of an ethical or even monetary problem (as you can be pretty fashionable while also super thrifty), rather a simple question of… how?
How the hell do you become fashionable?!
It is an infuriating question!
This video sheds some light on the subject…
No matter whatyour style really is – goth, glam, or goth glam or whatever – you can find a way to be fashionable within your budget. The means are there for those wishing to take the steps forward and actually accomplish a fashionable look. They say that you should dress for success, dress for the part you wish to be in life. There is a certain self esteem that builds in you when you go from wearing swimming trunks on a daily basis to wearing a suit and tie on a daily basis. A transformation happens mentally, maybe even spiritually. You slowly become a different person just by the apparel you wear on the outside. So why not wear what you desire? Wear the clothes of the person you want to be.
If you want to be the crazy surfer, well just shed the suit and tie in favor of the swimming trunks, some yellow thick rimmed glasses, and of course an appropriate surfing board. There you go! The body will come later, but if you are wearing who you are suppose to be, you will eventually catch up to that ideal. Not only that, but you will feel much better about who you are and who you are becoming.
Fashion is so much more than the red carpeted hallways of glam. Fashion is a tool we can use to develop who and what we are – what we define ourselves as.
This website is all about the fashion of our identity. And fashion can go beyond just apparel. Fashion can be any aspects of our life. If we lived in Alaska, maybe our fashion statement would include what kind of Anchorage roofing contractors we hire to repair epdm roofs, or what kind of fur coats we wear during the cold winters. Maybe it would even include what kind of four wheel drive car we drive through the billowing snow storms of the 49th state.
You see, fashion can expand and be everywhere and everything.
Now stop and take a look at your life… what can you change about your life that would lead you to a happier, more fashionable life?
Fashion is a strange thing indeed. You would think something like fashion would be restricted purely to clothes – but you would be dead wrong. Fashion is a very broad subject that expands far outside of mere apparel, baubles and other things one may wear. You see, fashion is also a cultural stance or a wave that the culture seeks to emulate.
Music itself is a kind of fashion. One era it was the classical sounds of piano, another came the grunge sounds of the 90s, another era held hair metal to be supreme. As with fashion, music too is a cyclical circle going round and round. Only music and fashion are intimately tied together. Look at Micheal Jackson with his black shoes and white socks – his musical prowess made that into a symbol of fashion. The same thing could be said with the strange meat dress of Lady Gaga – or a myriad of other marriages that fashion has had with the music industry over the centuries.
Or even millennia for that matter.
A really good article on Push It talks more about it . But Push It isn’t the only place where fashion meets music. Look at the world of DJs all around the world, playing out dub step, trance, reggae or rap and hiphop beats. One does not need to go to many clubs to see the radiant glow of global fashion trends at work here, mixed in with whatever beats software the DJ has aiding him that night.
That is why I wanted to introduce this video. For anyone who is an aspiring fashionista, why not combine musical talent with your next piece of apparel? This video is actually a review of a DJ software that makes beats. You can check out the Dr. Drum Review – Free Top Beats Maker Audio Software Download video here.
Or just watch it below.
Dr Drum Review
As you can see, she is pretty impressed with the software. Maybe you will be too. Maybe you can become the next Micheal Jackson or Lady Gaga and set the world of fashion on fire by first setting the world of music on fire? How cool would that be?
Music and fashion are forever married. They have been since the ancient Greeks and the far East ever started plucking a string to turn noise into sonnets and lyrical poetry. It is a beautiful process. You can become part of that process.
If you try that is!
