One of the things I enjoy from the weather here in Oxford is that you can make all sorts of combinations as when the winter is over, we live in a sort of permanent "entretiempo", what in Spanish means "that sort of weather when is not hot, but is not cold, depending on the time and if you are in the sun or not"...English weather. What I like about it is that you actually can play with layers and do things like boots and skirt and get away with it. Again I am combining basics with a more colourful touch on the bag and this plain black dress is proving to be a great investment as it is very versatile.
Top Shop blazer, shirt and dress; Hakei boots and Mango bag.
And the spring came...at least for a weekend! I couldn't wait to wear this skirt, that I bought as an "elegant" one, with t shirt and trainers. I think this kind of combination always bring something special, plus you somehow feel special in between dressing up and going comfy and casual.
I was trying to find a pair a white trainers for ages and these came up unexpectedly and are making my weekends! another special item in this look is the bag from Thailand that I am determined to use beyond jeans-white t shirt combination.
Zara t-shirt, Boch belt (vintage), H&M skirt, bag from flea market in Thailand, Zara jacket and Adidas Stan Smith.
I am starting to think social media are an absolute democracy when it comes to communication. There is no filter, no-one has the power to decide. If something or someone reaches the majority and get into them ,either because they love it, hate it or simply find it interesting...this something becomes a success. Anyone can go ahead and create a social media account, a website, a blog a video channel and just broadcast themselves to the world. Imagination is the limit here, nowadays we have millions of people sharing their ideas, their outfits, their homes, travels, daily routines, exercise, what they cook, eat, read or simply their daily routines. I could carry on for ages because when it comes to content and interests the web seems limitless but the point is: if it has followers, it's a success. Here success is not based on market research but on the simplicity of the number of visits, followers, comments or likes.
The new celebrities in all the fields who became famous through their own social media platforms and thanks to their very own followers are now the new faces on advertising, magazines, TV, front rows and social events but...is there a fairer way to become a star or a better example of meritocracy? Success in our era is achievable for anyone with a idea and access to internet...easier? impossible.
