If you've ever been on my WHI page, you know I have not one, but three collections dedicated to clothes. Clothes and fashion and style and aesthetics as a collective excite me simply because... Well it is my outlet. I'm not an artist in either a musical and/or picking up a paint brush aspect. So I use makeup and clothes as my form of art. Those 3 hours I spend in the morning to make sure my eyebrows are even and my outfit is on point is my art, and why wouldn't such a thing count as so? Art is derived from inspiration, and is mimicked. As an artist, I take my inspiration from icons like Rihanna and Zendaya and Tracy Ellis Ross and Solange and Yara Shahidi and the list goes on and on. Artists work tirelessly in order to make their work perfect, and they still manage to hate the outcome. Again, I spend a good 3 hours every day ensuring that I look perfect, but I'm truly never satisfied. I always feel the need to push my limits further. Ultimately, though, artists create masterpieces that are extensions of themselves, and I know for a fact that I'm a masterpiece.
To make this long spiel short, just like art, there is no right or wrong way regarding how to dress or how to go about figuring out your style and aesthetic. Just like our character, our style is different, and I believe that that alone is the beauty of the fashion world. It's freedom. It's breaking barriers, and it challenges us so that we can be even more comfortable in our own skin. Fashion is my life, and the next time someone tells you you're taking to long getting ready or your outfit is too extra, skrew them. Express yourself.
RANT OVER ILY ALL ❤️❤️❤️
