Do you ever find yourself to be ahead of your time? You've been wearing something a certain way for years and all of a sudden you find your style to be the latest trend? I have always believed that Coco Chanel had the right idea when she said " Fashion fades, only style remains the same."
That being said, I can't help but feel a certain sense of satisfaction when I discover that I am accidentally following a fashion trend.
I was surprised when I came across this article in Vogue magazine a couple of days ago.
I also enjoyed the quote that it mentioned from Nasir Mazhar (a brilliant London-based milliner). He states "I can do utter fantasy, but like to make new and modern pieces for real people too." I can absolutely relate to this. I LOVE to do completely crazy fantasy costumes or jewelry pieces, but in the end I like bringing some parts of that fantasy into the world in a more practical and wearable way.
A bit of fantasy for the urban fairy if you know what I mean.
Anyway, hope that everyone is staying warm and that this winter isn't too bitter. Spring is just a couple of months away and I just can't wait for the flowers to come out! :)
