La multi ani!
Hei, sper ca ati inceput bine noul an. Hmm, eu sunt intr-o pasa buna, imi e foame de informatie, vreau sa aflu mai mult, vreau sa judec mai mult, vreau sa observ mai mult. Sunt norocoasa pentru ca am la dispozitie o carte extrem de veche si voluminoasa despre istoria modei si acum ma straduiesc sa adun cat mai multa informatie. Intre timp, ochii mei ratacesc printre cataloage cu colectiile dragei doamne Vivienne Westwood pentru care am o pasiune uluitoare. Nu cred ca hainele ei ma atrag in mod principal, ci maniera in care Vivienne vrea sa ni se arate, ideea din spatele lor....modul in care spune lucrurilor pe nume. Si poate multi o considera mai mult decat nonconformista, aproape nebuna. Dar pana la urma, toti avem o urma de nebunie, numai ca unora le e frica sa arate asta, iar altii profita din plin de ea.
In seara asta, am cautat, in spate cuvintelor ei, unele m-au amuzat...iar altele m-au pus pe ganduri. Sunt curioasa ce efect au asupra voastra.
I hope you began this year on the right foot. Right now, I’m cheerful and in a good mood, I’m hungry for more and in need of information. I want to think a whole lot more, to simply be able to observe more. I’m lucky to have a pretty old and knowledgeable book about the history of fashion of which I can’t get enough. I’m just trying to get it all in.
Meanwhile, my eyes roam over the catalogues of Miss Vivienne Westwood’s collections, whom I dearly appreciate. I don’t believe her clothes are what appeal me, but the way she presents them to the world, how she illustrates the idea behind, her straight-forwardness . Maybe that’s why people, sometimes, label her as an extreme nonconformist, occasionally crazy.
In the end, there’s a piece of crazy in all of us. It’s about the people who embrace it at its fullest and the ones who run away from it.
Tonight, I searched some of her quotes and looked for meaning. Some amused me … and some gave me something to think about. I’m curious, where did they lead you?
Why do people think that if you don't dress up, others will appreciate your beauty more – that style will somehow emanate from you? It's rubbish. If you dress up it helps your personality to emerge––if you choose well.
There's something really awful about the way people dress now. Everyone looks the same. Everyone wants to look neutral.
My manifesto is saying, essentially, every time you learn something, you see something you understand, you are helping to change the world and you are a freedom fighter. Even if it just means looking a word up in the dictionary you didn't know before.
I think women (and men) should flirt: all's fair in love and war.
I'm not trying to do something different, I'm trying to do the same thing but in a different way.
So many women don't seem to even understand what sexy means. Sexy is about looking powerful and important.
I think dress, hairstyle and make-up are the crucial factors in projecting an attractive persona and give one the chance to enhance one`s best physical features.
