Less is moreJuly 13, 2012
I decided to write about this topic because I simply get mad lately of what I`m seeing on the street, at TV and everywhere. I can`t stand anymore to see girls who don`t know what else to put on them to be attractive, sexy and to have success. Dear, you have to understand that as you overreact in everything, you`ll be ridiculous.
I had also my past times when I believed that more in fashion, means better, but I was very young and in searching for my own style. Yes I also tried all hair colors and all hairstyles, yes I wore navel t-shirts, yes I wanted also a belly piercing (Thank God I restrained myself), yes I had 6 earrings holes (from which I use only 3 now), yes I wore tons of jewels, yes I put too much make up, yes I had also brown and black lips contour, but I honestly tell you that after you find yourself and your personal style, then you`ll not need those surrogates for you to be accepted and loved, you`ll just accept as you are and you`ll be more feminine than ever and you`ll attract all the success you desire.
A big NOT to navel t-shirts, to huge nails, to very short skirts, to piercings, hair extensions, silicons, extreme make ups, to everything which is overreacting. Start to understand that less is more, be feminine and accept yourself as you naturally are.
Exactly this I understood some years ago, that although I tried to change my hair and eyes color through contact lenses, the way I was dressing and make up, were things which didn`t represent me. So I decided to return to natural way of things, cause someone up there knows why he fixed us like this. So I returned to my natural hair and eyes color, to a good sense make up, to clothes which suit me, a minimalist sporty-elegant style, I renounced to excessive jewelry and huge nails (better have them short and clean). I never thought to have silicons, although the mother nature was not so much gifted with me:) I didn`t want to be a copy cat, to do what every other girl does.
I don`t say to not take care of you, to not spoil yourself like a woman does. It`s good to take care of your body and mind, of what you eat and of your health. But there are limits, this doesn`t mean to keep drastic diets, to not eat anything only to be skinny and to be liked by a guy or because this is what you see around you, but also it doesn`t mean to eat too much and become like a whale cause you have frustrations. The middle way is always the best. The good sense is the most important in everything you do.
No one says also to have only branded clothes, you can wear no name clothes and to suit you very well and make you feel comfortable. But if you want to put accent on your upper part of the body, then be more decent in the down part and viceversa, cause having your boobs and ass exposed in the same time, looks cheap and vulgar.
I noticed also the mania with high heels, even at the beach. High heels are great for evening or for an event or if you are shorter, to wear some platforms, but stilletos in the middle of the day is too much. Plus that they are uncomfortable. You don`t need to torture yourself like this only because it`s fashionable. Yes, I`ve made the same mistake till I traveled to Italy, the fashion home, and I saw that 90% of Italian girls had a casual, comfortable style, they were not torturing themselves to look good, and even like this they were noticed. Believe me, they were wearing only flat sandals or shoes and they were still so feminine and stylish.
So, please, try to be yourself and not a copy of someone else, try to be unique, original, feminine and take care of yourself.
Anyway they say the inner beauty is reflecting in the outside also and it is true. Your interior mood counts more than the exterior. And don`t forget about the attitude.
This post was a little harsh, but I had to say what is bothering me from some time now.
What is your opinion about what,s happening today? What`s your fashion icon?
I love your comments, so I`m waiting you to write me.
