Okay,so I was planning on scanning this interesting article from summer i-D about how diversity should be important in the fashion world,but the scanner is being irratating,and you'd probably not be able to read the tiny text anyways. Shame though, because there were a lot of good points to it.
I have a very huge hatred of the way society seems so prentensious, and vain. I know,coming from someone who's interested in fashion may seem hypocritical. I'm not really sure about of lot of things, and question my ideas/beliefs constantly,so if I sound naive,it is probabaly because I am.
But at the moment,how I see it,is that people are becoming too obsessed with looks and I think this is very shallow. I think it's a shame how people are so easily(and seriously I mean,really easily) able to judge one another on the clothing/make up/hair/whatever choices they make before personality. I also think the media has a huge impact on making people believe a sqewed image of beauty. These womens magazines like OK,or Now that label people fat or ugly or badly dressed . And many other magazines are culprits for it too.Why does this even matter? It disgusts me.Anywho,I'm not ranting,I just think it's an important topic.
On a sort of similiar note,I went christmas shopping with a friend last weekend,and spotted these purple flares in the topshop sale-
So the photo doesn't do them justice,but they were only £5, fit perfectly round the waist,were an amazing shade of purple,and just needed to be taken up a couple of inches on the leg. I kind of wanted to buy them, but I was with one of my less accepting friends and she looked really scared. I almost felt like I couldn't admit to liking them. And for some reason I knew I wouldn't be daring enough to wear them....it was a weird sort of moment,and I disliked it.
