Over these new Couture pieces that strutted down the Parisian runways this week.
The world of fashion really does fascinate me. I have a deep soft spot for the art of it within my heart. Granted I am not always decked out like Victoria Beckham (who's style I appreciate)... No in fact the simple tom-boy look in me is usually what you'll catch me in from day to day with attitude of course... Attitude is always apparent in my look, that is my signature if I was to have one. I am extremely down to earth and love to live laid back life full of quality and this is what inspires my day to day style. That said, I am a twin aka GEMINI so you can expect a flip side to that. The flip side in me does admire and lust for flawless construction, color, attitude and an over all message in pieces of my clothing after all I do work in fashion and entertainment ... I can shamelessly say that I can not afford all of my taste just yet but I am due to arrive at that train stop soon and when I get there I can assure you... I will arrive in style.
As an artist I am moved by collections from designers that inspire me and I will admit my personal taste comes at a pricey cost. I love translating their visions through my own by putting together pieces of wardrobe that represent ME. Its an exciting feeling when you feel good about how you look and the message you are sending through it.
There is a quote "Craft loves to wear clothes but TRUTH loves to go naked". I remember reading this years ago thinking, "Wow- that sums me right up in a sentence". The artist in me loves self expression by all means. Clothes and accessories play a huge part in that. The first thing people see when you walk into a room is not your personality, the kindness of your heart or your down to earth demeanor... they see your appearance. It is human nature to get a "taste" if you will, for the person based off of there appearance. It almost seems shallow but getting a feeling for the person is not judging the person, although many do that and THAT is what I find to be shallow. Its always nice when you look around and see someone who went out of there way to express themselves through the art of fashion. Appreciation for it does not mean I only have to be surrounded by this -definitely not- my lifestyle would NEVER allow that. (who's dressing up in Fiji while I'm there on a surf trip?!? get my point?)
It solely means I appreciate it...
On the flip side to that comes the "truth loves to go naked" part of me. I am all truth and nothing but the truth. In every aspect of my existence I live and breathe truth. I am true to myself even when it doesn't make others happy. I am honest with myself even if I am not happy with what I am being honest about. I am honest in my intentions towards every action and every human I come across in my life. Truth is nature. I live for nature. Truth is pure and so is my heart. I have been away from this room that I love to be in for weeks now. Trying to think of ways to get back in it. Every time I thought I found a way in I would come up short...hence the reason for a huge gap in my last entry. But. My reasons for it stem from the truth.
I know this is called a "blog" but for me this is really an online journal. Why I chose to post my inner thoughts on to a worldwide forum? Well for two reasons I suppose... First reason being because I love to share. Always have. I have nothing to hide. TRUTH GOES NAKED... so here I am. Second reason is because maybe in my sharing I might be able to inspire someone, make someone think or even laugh and that is just as positive, even if they are laughing at me.
This room could carry what ever I want in it. I cannot put words down unless they are asking to come out. They have to be born from some real thought, feeling and inspiration...
The first month of this new year is here and tonight we will have a wolf moon. This is when the full moon will be biggest and brightest for all to see as it will be in closest to us in orbit. Maybe that's why I'm feeling inspired today...
