This evening I spoke to a lovely woman on the train. As the conversation went on, she stated that she doesn't like fashion and asked me what I love so much about it. I explained how for me, it simply could not be explained. It's a natural gravitation I've had since forever, and then I asked her why she doesn't seem like fashion one bit. I mean, to each their own, but fashion is something pretty much everyone deals with on a daily bases. You don't have to be really interested, but how can you simply not like it?
Her point was this - she felt as though she tried so hard but could never come up with clothes that were comfortable, fit her personal style, and were trendy. And she was just over it.
Her answer still has me thinking. Because it was obvious that she had at least some taste, and she was reading the fashion section of the paper so she must know what's up in our world. And then I came up with this little wishlist here.
Casual-comfortable-chic is a thing, and it's becoming more acceptable in the high fashion world. Take a look at Emmanuelle Alt and her fellow French Voguettes (ugh, I know. I'm such a fangirl). They walk from show to show in Paris dressed in dark jeans and loose blouses. Is that not totally easy, and very chic?
Anyways, here's my wishlist. Striped tee, black (legging!) jeans, the everyday bag, the everyday sunnies, a big hat only because it's sunny winter season aka perfect wool hat weather... And most importantly - the black flat. Seriously, the shoe that goes with every single piece in my closet ever.
Perfect for me, casual enough, most definitely comfortable, and quite chic if I don't say so myself....
Thoughts? What does your casual and comfy chic look consist of? xx
