10 years ago, when the world wide web was not as intense at it is right now, I considered window shopping as dangerous. When I was 18 (ahhh the good ol days) there was never a time after work where I would go straight home, heck no. I would go straight to the mall or to wherever there are people to flaunt around my new outfit. Yes I know I was both conceited and was totally an attention whore. Man, how things have change, now I don't even want to be the center of attention. Anyway the point is now web-window shopping is also dangerous. How many times have I told myself that I will not buy a certain Rebecca Minkoff or Helmut Lang and that I'd rather wait and hope it goes on sale soon. Countless and more often than not I end up buying them anyway. Well I don't have to suffer or be guilty alone, I am sharing my current infatuations with everyone. Let me know if we have the same obsessions right now. Some I know I wouldn't be able to afford but I still dream about it. lol
Fashion is ever changing and always at a top speed.We always here the big names. Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Gucci, Fendi, etc. we all love them and even the most fashion inept knows them. The stores and other designers follow their designs close by in order to make something affordable to the masses but how about those up and coming? The ones that are considered "indie" or the ones the snobs called "unmentionables" because they do not have that big of a following or store smack right in the middle of America's biggest cities.? I know it is hard to get out there, not just for fashion industry but every where. While I prepare for my BS in Fashion Management and Marketing, I've decided to put my store on hold and gather as much inspiration as I can, and with that research I found some really promising designers. Someday I hope to see them up the with the big guys doing what they do best, as unique as they are.
