On Fashion.


Malou. Beautiful and classy.


I spent time today browsing through fashion and beauty blogs. I just wanted to know what people are wearing these days considering the recent financial crisis. And also, I am in dire need of inspiration and I usually browse fashion and home decorating sites when I need to be inspired. I used to want to become a fashion and/or interior designer.

I found many delightful sites. But I also found sites that made me sigh in disbelief. I'm actually really surprised that there are people who take photos of themselves and model their own clothes. I've nothing against them, but let's be honest, there are people who are not really cut out for it. And it's NOT even about a person's size or shape.

I know of people who are on the heavy side but they look absolutely fabulous with the clothes they wear. There are those who do not have the body structure of Kate Moss but they're stylish and classy. And there are those who are thin and lean, but they look... err, trying hard.

It's all about being able to carry those clothes, I guess.

Sure, they probably have some sense of style. But for pete's sake (whoever he is), they should just let someone else wear those clothes so that at least, we'd be able to appreciate them.

Then again, fashion, as all forms of art, is subjective. It's all a matter of taste. To each his/her own, I always say.
Fact remains though (and let's be honest about it) -- some of us are cut out for it and some of us are not. And many of us are, well, delusional. :D

Gwapaha ni Mai uy! She should do modeling for a living! Angayan kaayo cya! You're right--it all depends on how one carries herself. Matambok or maniwang, basta kabalo mudala angayan gyud gihapon!

That's the word exactly -- ngilngig! Hahaha. In one site, I was so tempted to leave a comment: "You are not giving us Pinays a good name. They might think we all dress like you." LOL But of course, I didn't.

To each his/her own man, so blog na lang ko. :D

Sakto ka, wala gyuy nakabadlong. It's sad. They should find their strength somewhere else. Modeling is not for everyone.

You are right. People force it upon themselves. Worse, they take pictures of themselves and post it on the web. (Mean ko. LOL). It's good to do it once in awhile, but doing it all the time, I don't know.

PS. You are beautiful to begin with. :)

Hahaha! Bitaw, that's the ultimate... putting the 'beautiful' caption on their photos. Someone should gift them with mirrors. LOL
