Is fashion addictive? Hell yes! In my life at least.
I’ll explain it to you. Just like a lot of other bloggers, I have always loved clothes and especially shoes since childhood. As a toddler I already knew exactly that I wanted black patent shoes. And later, in puberty, I knew exactly in my head what kind of clothing I wanted to buy. Often it wasn’t to be found anywhere in the shops, just in my head.
Fashion is addictive, already when I was a child
I had a time in my life, when I was in my early 20’s, that I had a very good and cheap tailor who made exactly what I had in my head. He draw it while I explained what I wanted. That was amazing. I wish I had pictures of those clothes. I remember exactly what he made for me and what it looked like. I still remember I bought fabulous fabric and amazing buttons. Oh sigh….
Is it wrong to be addicted to fashion?
Since I have my blog, my clothing style has expanded a lot because I now wear prints and also color. Previously I only wore black. I still feel the best in black, it is so cool and so beautiful. But I no longer need black every day. Every season I intend to think carefully about what clothing I want to buy. And every time I always tell myself that I will only buy quality clothing. But you guessed it by now, fashion is addictive.
Every time I fall into the trap of fashion. And fast fashion. Then I see one style after another, and I think, oh yes I want that too. And I don’t have that skirt in that color yet, and those shoes will match so many of my other clothes. And so I fall in the trap of buying cheaper clothing to own all the different styles. Sometimes that’s okay. Like here, the sweater is super and the boots are great and they were both cheap. But I mean that by being addictive to fashion. I want so much!
What am I wearing?
This dress is several years old and I hardly ever wore it. And it is a wrap dress, my favorites. But I hardly ever wear red. Perhaps I will wear it more often now, because I think it looks great with the lilac! I also don’t wear scarfs often, but I can see it adds so much more to this outfit. I am wearing a faux leather jacket and patent leggings!
Shop the look!
Would really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.
