are we brain washed trend slaves? watch


    (Original post by ormaybeitsjustnarcissism)
    Not really. I only shop in vintage places and ebay (NOT because I'm that pretentious, you just find weirder stuff, and the staff and lighting in chain shops intimidate me), and there aren't many that are full of on trend things. Or maybe there are, I don't honestly know what's in, although I would guess military wear and floral? It always seems to be that.

    I prefer dressing more exaggeratedly anyway, floor-length petticoats or head to toe bright yellow, or so many layers and clashing prints etc. Shy tourists like taking pictures and old ladies go 'you look gorgeous dear!' and drunk men in tube stations shout 'It looks like a freak! Turn round, you look ******* horrible!' so it's all good fun anyway
    I agree with you I wear stuff from charity shops/ebay and other places like that and I worried that I looked pretentious or like all those girls you see that basically bought up Topshop.

    I follow trends but not because I'm a slave to fashion but rather because sometimes I like what's "on trend" having said that however I completely agree with what some people have said about completely following trends to the point of wearing tights as trousers (just ick in my opinion) and I'm always yelling at my friend for this as well haha.

    I just wear stuff that I like and suits my body shape for instance you're not going to see me in a tight dress or mini skirt to be quite frank.

    Also I shop every-where from vintage shops, charity shops, ebay and places like Topshop and H&M.

    I think most people are quite diverse now days and don't follow trends full on but rather pick what they like and style it with other stuff to make it their own.
Which accompaniment is best?
