oh please don't say that punkie, dont be unfair with yourself
discovering that you are 'passionate' about fashion at your late 20's
is not a disadvantage at all .. it may even be an advantage you know...

thanks Lena, i will not dissapoint you with my collection i can promise

i think part of the reason why i consider myself a fashion bitch is because i have this unrealistic fantasy about what people should look like rather that what people DO really look like. which is a good and bad thing, good because as a designer you need to create a fantasy which people want to buy into, and bad because its sort of soul destroying and makes you a bad person
acid---do people keep calling you sean?...i guess i don't know you a well as lena does, but i'd love for you to elaborate on what your ideal is... pls!

When Karl started doing Lagerfeld Gallery I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. I'm very much the girl he does for that collection. Jeans, jackets, a bit of androgyny, blahblahblah.

So not avant-garde although I do dable in that world if a jacket or top really strikes me and fits into the above somehow.

I think I'd lean towards the fashion elite type ... maybe cuz I think everything can be wearable (if done properly) ... the thing's I've always thought of myself of a person with a style rather than a trend-follower (though in some ocassions I'd like to think of myself as a trend-setter)
Anyhow ... I think I'm a bit confused ... that paragraph seems to part the Red Sea (and we all aren't fishes)

"Fashion elite", I think.

*I don't like "typical clothes." I prefer ones ahead of its time. New silhouette, very experimental. But I have to admit I like some strong classic looks (Ralph Rucci).

i like classic pieces, i like looking lady-like. i'm very girly. i draw inspiration from the 1940's-60's. that's why i was so excited over "return of the lady" recently in most collections.

I thought this topic was going to be a quiz. Which member of the avant-garde are you?

At this point in time, I can affordf neither the fashion elite nor the avant-garde. But if I could I would mix it up. Right now I'm a not-very-monied college student straddling the thrift stores and chain shops.

it's not supposed to be about how much money you spend on clothes, more about your choice of wardrobe and your personal style...which do you prefer...

i chant my mantra which is my signature...courtesy of chrsitian dior himself

"it is not money...etcetera, etcetera, etcetera" (that's my imitation of yul brenner in the king and i)

that's why i didn't put the topic as fashion elite but avante garde...because i think everyone would like to consider themselves elite and you all are...imo


but pradaromance...please don't take this the wrong way, i'd say you are a fashionista if ever there was one...i truly mean that in the best possible way...you've got all the hottest pieces from all the hottest collections and you are always right on trend...and fabulously so, i might add...i love it!
