It truly feels like forever since my last post, or a least a last piece of self expression, which can be anything, a photograph, short film, journal entry or something as simple as drawing. That simple task, that in fact can only take 10 minutes out of anyones day sometimes just seems to hard to do, but when it’s done it’s definitely one of the most fulfilling feelings in the world. I could defiantly say that self expression is something I live for. And that could be visual or verbal. Artistic or as practical as putting on clothes in the morning. It has always fascinated me how the clothes we wear and how everything comes together makes us truly who we are or one step closer to that goal. I like to say that fashion is the most powerful form of ones self reflection to the world, we all speak different languages, have different cultures, come from different backgrounds, but there’s something about the clothes we wear to really communicate to the outside world who we truly are inside.
And for the past that will for self expression has been stronger than ever! I don’t spend my days going through Instagram feeds, or Tumblr, or wasting my time on YouTube, watching music videos or the 1000th haul that’s from 3 years ago. Don’t get me wrong I still do those things, but not at the extent I use to. If I am not working, I looking for ways to create, I write, not for the sake of posting, or just to have content, I write for me. Which honestly I haven’t done in almost 2 years. If I were to write it had to be published one way or the other. If I was going to start doing some sort of creative idea, in my mind I had to have it shown to the world, not for the sake of bragging more for the sake of putting the content out there, because what us bloggers are meant to be doing, we are the content creators. We create content for the audience that may find it entertaining, educational or enjoyable. But if you are one of these content creators as yourself. When was the last time you’ve done something thats truly for you. That really reflections your true self, without thinking twice about reactions or judgments? Please, let me know in the comments, because I am genially curious!
But thanks to fashion, we can not only become a different version of ourselves, but we can also escape ourselves. Thanks to colourful contacts, wigs, fake nails, we can discover what we really like, and what we don’t. What we can improve and what can ignore. I find it amazing how something as little as putting those fake colourful contacts on (It took ages let me say) made me feel so me. Paired with this outfit and black lipstick, which at first scared the living hell out of me, but I’ve decided to give it a try and bam! The witch as risen! When I went to my apartments elevator and looked at the whole state of me all I could think was “wow, that’s me, true me”. For some reason I’ve felt so myself wearing the hat, the make up, contacts and whole outfits that I cannot put it into words. I mean, I am still me when I’m not wearing those things, let’s be real. But there was something about wearing all of those things in one go, and I was always afraid wearing them together! I suddenly felt so cool, confident, witchy and quite superior like wearing this I could do anything! I recommend that feeling. This outfit and make up is something I’ve always admired but was always too afraid to do it myself. And I don’t understand why, I loved wearing it, and if I love who the F cares if others won’t. Wear what you wear!
