No, no, no! Don’t think it! I am NOT a hypocrite and that is not my thing. Maybe you mistake me, though, for another lady who bashes other women online only to then accuse others for not being feminists. But honey, I’m a natural brunette. You are clearly mistaking us.
However, I know what you are going to say, I can see the fumes in my crystal ball: “Yeah, you speak about not caring for fashion yet you’re always dressed nicely, it’s so easy for you.”
Well it is, ladies. But only in my good days, which are getting fewer and fewer by the month. And do not even get me started about the other days…
However, there is one thing that’s been constantly popping up in my mind lately, whenever someone asks me about fashion and style.
Why do we care that much?
Sure, I say this today, after years of getting familiar with the fashion industry, after years of owning tons of items, after years of changing at least 3 outfits a day – sure, drawing conclusions is easy. So I understand where you are coming from, but believe me, it’s exactly this that gave me clarity, in order to see things more clearly.
Even today, I own a sh*tload of clothes: nightdresses, jeans (yes, believe it or not, I own jeans), cocktail dresses, sheer kimonos, every accessory imaginable (cca. 400 pieces of statement jewellery). My abode may be for some the very definition of wonderland. But not for me, not anymore at least.
And now I know it was meant to be like this. I was meant to have it all just to realise it doesn’t really matter. I think this is life’s favourite game with us, mortals.

But this is it, I’m focusing my energy in another direction. I want to live and enjoy other things: beautiful experiences, seeing and learning cultural wonders, evolving harmoniously and healthily in my own body and — every once in a while — finding one piece of clothing which looks like a fairy tale and makes a statement. Like this Morodan Shop coat I’m wearing today in this metaphor about me burying my old self. Because that is the metaphor. Did you get it? Was it easily discernible? Because Costrut always says I’m way too cryptic.
So, God help me succeed, because I always was one great theoretician in this area but a below average practician.
