It is not unusual to hear people say that fashion is a way to express ourselves and I fully agree. Through all my life, I´ve jumped from style to style trying to find the one that identifies me the most. But the truth is that it is kinda impossible. I´ve learned that I have so many sides of me and, as I grew up, I don´t feel like settling into one in particular.
However, I do have some fashion styles I am in love with and go back to over and over again. And just like styles, I have different fashion icons I am obsessed with. That´s why I thought would share some of them with all of you (and with all of you I mean the 3 lovely people who read me XD) in a new series on the blog. These people are some of the ones I take fashion inspiration from and I hope they can inspire you to try something new!
Hello, everybody! Seasons are changing, the new collections are taking over the fashion world and fashionistas around the globe are going wild with excitement. For those who don´t know, I love everything related to royalty and knights; from history to armoury and weapons and, of course, ways of dressing, the whole aesthetic brings my hidden inner princess and knight back to life.
Just take Cinderella for example, or Carrie from Sex and the City.
Since I was a child, I´ve always been obsessed with shoes. Flats, high heels, oxfords, sandals, pumps…in every shape or form, I feel a deep love for them and a fascination that goes beyond me. Internally, I blame my grandmother who, despite, me never having the chance of meeting her, also adored shoes and had quite a collection, that (sadly) my mom got rid off. Besides, I seem to find comfort in shoes; for someone like me who is not thin, finding clothes that fit and that I like has been torture. But shoes…they always fit, even if I am a size 38-39 (UK 5-6).
For me, there is nothing better than putting on some high heels. Once I am on them, voilá! I feel ten times better about myself, more confident, powerful, pretty. And let me tell you, as someone who has such low self-esteem, having a pair of shoes that makes you feel that way is amazing.
However, there is one brand that helps me even more. A brand that makes me feel like I am not invisible to everyone and that is Irregular Choice, the wonderland of shoes.
