As consumers, we are bombarded with visual information from hundreds of sources everyday. But I have the opposite problem that most people have – I am not easily influenced. If I wear something, it is quite likely to be an item that is tried-and-true or something from my own “fashion bucket list” that I have coveted for some time.
I went to visit some of my favourite architectural structures in December. This gasholder has been converted into a park.
Contrary to how many clothing items I seem to have, I don’t actually give myself a very high wardrobe budget. I have other priorities like design travel, design tools, food, and so on.
This is how I stay true to my style and also budget constraints:
Dress is a way of communicating your personality or identity:
Designer brands are very different from each other. They all have different muses, and often different customer profiles in mind when they design. I asked myself, what kind of consumer am I? The sort of sexy siren who loves Christian Louboutin stilettos? Or perhaps a cool girl well-versed in streetwear subcultures, who loves collections by Supreme and Off-White? I think neither – what I wish to be is more of a feminine geek.
I’ve not made any real changes to my wardrobe this season. I hope my readers also find joy in staying true within one’s own time and cost budget.
