Found two lovely mails in my inbox, asking me to feature in a post on their Blog, very exciting. But there were some important questions I had to answer like, describe your style, taste of fashion and well, I think you know what sort of questions they were. Well, ofcourse I know myself, my style and how I look at Fashion but it's damn hard to describe it to people who don't live and look in my head 24/7.
First of all I see my Blog as my personal Diary. I changed a lot as a person in the last two years. My style changed with the days, months that followed. A few years ago, my clothes had the intention and purpose to shock and provoke people. In those times people really didn't get my personality so my answer was, well than I'm going to dress my self to your not-understanding. After that one year crazy phase I grew so much as a person. I moved to Amsterdam to study Advertisement, Marketing and Communication and met the most interesting people with a new view on life. My whole perception of the world around me changed and obviously my taste in clothes and the way I express my self did. I didn't felt the pressure to act 'different' anymore so I had more time and energy to focus on the real me. My style adapted to that and now I try to wear clothes that suit my inner being and the way I feel every day. I still feel the pressure sometimes though to wear unique clothes, and honestly sometimes I can't stand seeing people wearing the same clothes as me ( think a lot of people can relate to that ). But then I realise that I still have a lot to learn, working progress haha.
Music also defines what I wear on a daily basis. I get inspirited so often that I definitely don't have a certain style. It changes every day because of that, and I find it interesting to keep an eye on it, by posting it on my personal diary Blog. It's like a timeline, where you can see, what was on my mind in that certain time of my life. If you're interested in my daily thoughts, and to know me just a little bit better than you can always follow me on Twitter. Hope you have a pleasant evening. Lots of love, Herphoenix
