Fashionista or Fashion Victim?

March 13, 2011

Ok, I think this time I update on more serious (yeke?) topic. Oh, before you come and trashing about this post, I suggest you to read until the end =) And one more thing, this post definitely not about judging other people's styles. I would not touch on what outfits u wear, what shawls styles u choose and etc. Remember, I'm not a judgmental person :)


I just want to highlight a few points that might make u a fashion victim instead of a fashionista.
So, let's get started on. Between those 2 there are major differences.

#1 Follow blindly the styles of others
Okay, do u guys noticed that some people look very nice with their outfits and some people don't while actually these people share the same styles? Oh, rephrase that sentence; when 2 people wear the same outfits, one person would look incredibly gorgeous while another would make you said "what is she wearing??!!"

Well, why this happened? If u just follow what others are wearing and don't take a look in the mirror, that'll happen. To be safe, just try the styles that suits you. You want to look pretty not weird, right? =)

#2 Spend money on latest outfits
Erm.. you keep on spending the money even you know u don't need a new outfit or the style just don't really suits you. Ignoring those, u will spend eventually. I admit, I usually gets boring with the same clothes in my wardrobe. But what I always do is mix and match!

I combined new and old clothes of mine to get a few good looks. Sometimes, I found a few vintage clothes of my mum. I took it since she didn't fit in them anymore..hihi! M&M actually would help u create your own style. U saved money and got a new look.

#3 Branded stuffs
You want to have all those branded stuffs. Even in reality u can't afford it. The usual excuse, branded stuffs = quality. How u know? If u can afford it, go on. This point is for those who can't afford. Personally, I don't fancy branded stuffs. First reason, there are so many imitated brands out there, so even if u bought an original, people would said, "Eleh, mesti handbag cap ayam".

Second, it's just a waste of money. You can actually get a few nice things equivalent of 1 branded item. When shopping, I like things which are comfy, suits me and nice to look at. The brand doesn't matter. I even love to shop at flea markets :)

#4 To look pretty all the time
Yes, all of us want to look pretty. Well, sape tak nak, kan? :) But then, there are some places where u need to be just nicely dressed not overdressed. When u go to work/classes, don't need to wear all the glittery makeups or heel boots where everyone would turn around to catch a glimpse of yourself. Well, takkan masa tido pun nak pakai make up kan? ;p

Do u know most guys don't like heavy make ups? My boyfriend said, these girls look scary especially yang eye shadow kaler2. I don't know what to say. Hehe.

Yeah, not just guys, I am a girl and don't like it at all. The most make ups I wear ever are Nivea fruity shine Cherry, Silky White Liquid Foundation and eye liner. Itu pun kalau dah terlebih rajin, baru korang boleh nampak aku cam tu ;D I sincerely admit, I don't know how to apply make ups.


For me, u don't need to be both either fashionista or fashion victim. To be pretty is simple, u first need to have pretty heart, mind and soul. Then u'll be naturally pretty. ^_^

Sorry too, if this post offended anyone. Chill, it's just my two cents :)

p/s: Oh, tomorrow is Monday!
