“I’d have better style if I had more money”
This quote just gives me goose bumps. I hate this quote so much and I keep on hearing it every so.
I have been following all sorts of people on Instagram, FB and other social media. I have been following all-Chanel, head-to-toe Zara and all-the-way thrift shop kind of people. I like getting inspired and inspiring other people because I think it is very important to share your ideas and see how people can reuse and transform them into their own. I have seen people in all kinds of hideous clothes despite what they own and how much money they have.
Back to the quote, why I hate it so much is because the formal definition of a word style is: “
So, as the hate towards this quote gave me an inspiration to write another post I saw a leather jacket being promoted by Lidl that would be coming to stores. I knew immediately that I need to purchase the jacket which won’t be just a normal leather jacket in a normal outfit post on braidsandeyeliner but would symbolise my hate towards the quote and my mindset of being convinced that you truly don’t need much (or any) money to have a good sense of style and personal way of dressing. I am a big fan of thrift shops and second hand clothing because of its restfulness and beneficial effect on me (price), environment (no extra production) and society (post-use of a clothing that would otherwise be thrown away).
In this post I really want to show with such a small piece of a garment strong and bigger message that should be portrayed and force people to think about how, why and what we buy these days.
