Last week, I tested the waters on a new series about confidence, positivity, and all that good stuff here and asked you all for your feedback. Everyone who commented said they loved the idea and wanted to see more posts in that style. This makes me incredibly happy since I myself have struggled with some of the issues I will mention in these posts, and nothing will make me happier than to help others in these kinds of situations. And, I said last time this is also a way to just spread positivity on much dreaded Monday’s!

This week’s theme; self-expression came to my mind almost immediately after writing last week’s post. Funnily enough, on Saturday my family and I ended up visiting the Centre Pompidou, a modern art museum here in Paris. A great exhibition of Jeff Koon’s art was on display, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Modern art is something I love since it is easier to recreate than perhaps some of the impressionist’s work (not to say I don’t love Monet!). Whilst there, I thought to myself that sometimes things just happen for a reason, like being in an art museum two days before writing a post about expressing yourself.
I think art is the ultimate form of self-expression, whether it be by painting, sculpting, drawing, singing, dancing, or my personal favorite: writing! And this wouldn’t really be a fashion blog if I didn’t include the fact that fashion is one of THE best ways to express yourself! My outfits really reflect my mood, my emotions, some of the things that are running through my head, and the list goes on. You know, some days I feel like dressing like a boho babe (like here, here, and here), sometimes I want to dress like a really bad-ass ‘rocker’ chick (like I did here, here, and here), and sometimes I just feel like going all out with my look and stepping out of my comfort zone (see this post, this one, and this other one)! The great Gianni Versace (may he rest in peace) said, “Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are and what you want to express.”
Don’t be slaves to fashion, be yourselves, discover your style, and own it! Until next time!
