Too many questions. Too many doubts. Lets take one by one.
You spend thousands of bucks on one party-wear only to wear it once? What’s wrong in reusing? Especially girls, find it too hard to wear the same shoes, outfits and accessories because they don’t want the same set of people to see them in the same clothing!
My question is, if they can see “the same YOU” for decades, why shouldn’t they see you in the same outfit once again?
I really love the way Duchess Of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and the US First Lady, Michelle Obama, changed the entire idea. They have repeated a number of accessories and outfits on various occasions, mixed and matched them with different style and hairdo. They just made recycling and reusing a new style statement!
People who are under the limelight and spotted by reporters and cameras, round the clock, googled by the entire world; wear the same outfits and accessories. Why shouldn’t you and I?
Next, How old is too old? When do you call something old and out of fashion?
Recently my friend lost his mobile phone and so until he bought a new one, he had to use his old phone which he used until last year. He said it is too old! How does a phone which you used till last year is too old now???
So I told him, “you know me for almost 7 years now, am over couple of decades old too!”
He said a mobile is different, the old phone has no upgrades!
So I said,“well, am from the same homosapiens for millions of years with almost no upgrades.! “
You go into a store, get the latest model-mobile phone for which you have been saving up for few months, come out of the store and there is new upgraded version of the same phone! Now your new phone becomes way too old and out of trend?
I just don’t get it.
Finally, Should A Pretty Outfit Be Expensive?
For this I would say, the best example would be Kang So Ra’s MAMA Red Carpet outfit! She wore this simple and gorgeous $30 dress while presenting at the 2014 Mnet Asia Music Awards. How cool!
Sometimes “pretty” is not in the clothes, it is in your face. And a pretty face does not depend on the gold facial that you did the previous night but your happiness and peace of mind.
People get carried away by brands and prices. Ah.. They tend to forget the fact that;
You should be respected for what you are and not for what you wear.
Too many questions,..indeed.
