Social icons

My friend has always made a bold statement with her bright pants and simple top which really captured my attention and it made me wonder, can I pull that off? I'd say my favourite feature on my body is probably my legs. They're not particularly toned or longer than an average person's but I feel like if I wear some heels, my legs are more defined and long (obviously). I don't know, there's something about them that are more satisfying than the rest of my body. It's not that I'm insecure, but everyone has that part of their body that they like more than the other, right? Or am I just weird.

I got these pants from Marella the other day, they're maybe 5cm longer than my whole entire leg, going from the top of my waist to the floor but to be honest, I thought that if I put on some heels, it'd be good to go... so I bought them. Keeping my friend's style and my body figure in mind, I managed to (I think) pull this off? That question mark makes all the difference. It doesn't matter what other people think. At the end of the day, I'm satisfied and that's what matters. My mum always told me, if you have a spark of confidence in yourself, others will have confidence in you. How can others have confidence in you when you don't have it yourself?

Make a statement with your confidence, make a statement with your fashion, make a statement with your successes. Things may not work out the way you want it to at first but it will come - as cheesy as that sounds. People always say "Things will get better" - and it's true. No matter what situation you're in, it'll get better with time.

Just me and the rubbish bag (hah) Seriously though, that was unintentional. I did see the rubbish bag when we were shooting but I didn't want to touch it.
Shoes: Wildpair
Ring: Young Pilgrims (Big Love Ring)

From year 7-10, I've never really had one good year. I've always been bullied, backstabbed by 'friends' and never taken into consideration that I was a human being. People threw food and bottles at me, people called me ugly and made racist judgements. I know, all that seems like a typical 'growing up' phase and most people have gone through it but it really hit me hard. Because of my depression through that time, my school grades failed and my social life plummeted but after year 10, I didn't care about it anymore - well I tried. I tried to be myself, worked hard and successfully made my mark in life by winning awards and surrounding myself with friends that respected me and had similar interests. Friends that supported me no matter what my decisions were and didn't judge me for being me.

What that taught me in fashion is that being yourself just might be the thing that bring you up high socially and internally. "Fake it till you make it" isn't what you should live by. You don't want to go to work each day faking your personality and your fashion sense, that'll just drain you from top to bottom - literally.

Take inspiration from other people and make it your own. If you do take style inspirations from other people, that's okay. You don't have to come up with original outfits all the time. At the end of the day, if it's what you like and how your style is like, whose to judge.

Make a statement in all aspects of your life, whether that's in fashion, your personality or your self confidence.
