Where the Style has gone?
Magazines and the web are full of pics of "People", Actresses and Actors, Royalties and Wealthy people having access to the most famous tailors and couturiers in the world, most famous counselors, and advisors reaching all famous brand’s productions in the world.
They should be the ones, and actually they are the ones, rewriting and creating every day the concept of elegance : an elegance that, in many cases, should be natural and coming from the inside.
To be goodly dressed, and, understand me, not « brand dressed », is a reflection of beautiful and rich souls, of the respect for our lives and bodies.
But only a few of these "People"are the ones that are combining elegance respecting their personality, able to communicate through their elegance messages of style and deep model to reach: the rest, is emptiness.
The reflection of our impoverished world and superficial times is reflected in poor personalities.
Fashion magazines are surroundings us with beautiful images that are mostly « photoshopped », and many of us are buying items that makes us think we will be having access to that rich, happy and shiny world.
Meanwhile, the quality of clothes production, strictly related to the consumerism’s world we are living in, is poor bad and obtained through the suffrance of many, in different parts of the World. The majority of clothes last a season, if so, in order for us to be pushed to consume more: as well as styles, colors, lasting just for some months, for us to automatically be busy in searching to have the new items of the moment.
What we have in common with these " Media Created Personalities" is, that if not through a dress, a bag, some shoes, we're not any more able to be individual and unique, to find and show our particular hints...
an immense mass of badly and poorly dressed people is walking through the world, reflection of our spiritual and cultural lack, fears, hungers and every day fights: among this mass, a minority of wealthy people and symbols are moving around too, mostly hiding and secluding.
On the other hand, as soon as we reach a Status object, immediately the way people are looking at us is different: is a fake. The world is moved by Power and Symbols! Imagine also how many pickpocketers and thieves are approaching us just because they recognized wealthy habits!
Somehow then, we hide behind these grey habits, worried of walking in some cities dressed differently, fearing to be attacked or perceived differently.
I like to believe that almost all people, they still have the capability of perceiving grace, beauty and inner richness around them : when I walk on a street well dressed expressing a shiny attitude, people are looking at me, and I see a sudden glimpse into their eyes ; but, it last a second.. they are not able to get rid of their fears, complexes and weaknesses. The world needs new guides to enrich the souls and let people shine on the outside!
This wil not happen through the Powered ones; they just wants us to be just as grey as the "anonymous" and dreaming of the world we cannot reach.
But our real world is not just expensive dresses and Symbols created by a Power: is a world of deeper beauty, made of elegant nature, of the colorful and meaningful livery of animals in their natural environments; the real live proofof what we are trying to destroy and badly reproduce.
You will not look better if you buy last Michael Kors’ bag ; you will not be more beautiful with last Prada’ Shoes. Royalties, models, actors, are not always model to be followed : they will not give you the status you are searching for.
Instead, start searching around you;in your cupboard, THINK, look at yourself in the mirror, TRY different things .
A simple black or white total look with a spark of color will enhance your personality that is just lying down layers and layers of lies, coming from a fake and unattractive world. Choose your color, the one that you like the most, do not follow the rules.
Dare to try, give yourself chances! Markets, private charming small fashion business, can make yourself shine uniquely, without ruining you with incredible expenses that will not give you the happiness you are searching for!
