Love, love, love this quote! So very true, anyone can pick the outfit from the mannequin in the shop window but a true fashionista will see potential in even the most hideous of garments! If you can take something with no 'hanger appeal' and make it fabulous then you've got style. I used to panic slightly when I would find something which I thought was an absolute steal because it was still left on the sale rack but then doubt would set in and I'd start to wonder WHY is this on sale and am I sight impaired because I think its a miracle that it hasn't been snapped up already. Now I just think to myself, you're not cool and you never were and maybe you're not fashionable(and there are plenty of pictures to prove that one) but you like what you like and when you wear it you feel good about it(and yourself). This year I will be debuting my white jeans, I've always wanted white jeans but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't slightly fearful of them BUT they were on sale in River Island and for 12 euro I'll risk looking a bit silly(or not with a bit of luck). Life is too short so go forth and dare to be different!
Anyone can be beige...wallpaper...generic! As the great Harry Winston said 'People will stare. Make it worth their while'.
