What is Fashion?
What the Heck is Fashion?
Quick! Name the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word fashion! I bet it’s clothes. If you would have asked me that as a kid I’d have the same response – as would the general population. Now, really take the time to think about the word. Where do you think it came from? When did it become a thing?
Clothes, Accessories and Cosmetics, Oh My!
You may think of fashion as material objects such as clothes, accessories or cosmetics – but there’s so much more to it than that. It’s what you make it. It’s your way of life. Let’s talk about the iconic Coco Chanel for a moment. One of my favorite quotes of hers reads: “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” Wow, is that not powerful? It’s a great way to look at life. I am definitely a silver linings kind of girl and someone who has a more positive, colorful outlook on life. Someone who see’s the beauty in everything, including the madness. If you’re a dreamer, you too see it in every aspect of life. It is so much more than the material things – it’s the way we live. It is defined differently for everyone and that’s what makes it such a beautiful, evolving thing.
How does Fashion Fit into Boss Gal?
As you may have already read here – Boss Gal is the evolution of Feast On Fashion, my former blog. Right before the evolution I had a blog breakthrough where I didn’t want to just write about fashion – I wanted to incorporate it into all women’s every day life in a powerful and meaningful way – the Boss Gal way. It’s is so much more than clothing to me. It’s about using your own unique taste to express yourself and support other women. I’ll be the first to tell someone where I got my outfit when I receive a compliment. We should all be helping each other out, right!?
