I’ve always had mixed feelings about fashion. I love the idea behind transforming inspirations to clothing but I resent the superficial nature. I realize that I’m really contradicting myself because after all. I am a fashion blogger. I have been in Paris for Fashion Week which has been on my bucket list for a while now. Even though excitement rushed through my body, there was still a small part of me that felt icky.

Going to Paris really made me think why we are taking fashion so seriously.
I cannot count how many times I’ve literally and figuratively felt small in the sea of tall people during those three days in Paris. While some argue that fashion is now for the masses with designers live streaming their shows, there is still a difference between watching it behind a computer screen or receive an actual invitation and being able to enjoy it with your own eyes. Fashion has always been a part of the elite and to this day, it still is. Seeing people parading their best designer goodies kind of threw me off but yet again, a side of me wants to be part of that. And this is the part where I am torn. I guess it’s more than human nature wanting to be part of the popular crowd. Being that extra special kind of gives your self-esteem a boost.
I’m realize more than enough that I am a hypocrite for stating these words while I am showing you my outfit during Paris but then again, I love showing my style and we all got to start somewhere right?
