Sustainability is a more than just a trend for me. Which is why I had a post on decluttering your wardrobe a while ago. We keep buying things we don’t want and chuck them away for various reasons. What are we doing? Why are we doing it? What’s wrong with the world today? So, I took on this project of styling the quintessential little black dress. To give it a new spin every single time.
Today, clothes such as a little black dress can be purchased with an app. Cosmetics and groceries are delivered at our doorstep. We long for fast and quick deliveries. We yearn the same in our relationships. It should be fast, it should be fulfilling yet a no-commitment approach. We are soon turning into some robots without any kind of intelligence. We are fast turning into a hungry and selfish generation that is looking to acquire more things, and swipe endlessly on dating sites in pursuit of the most endearing partner.
What’s wrong with the world today? Plenty, I’d say.
Friends who know me often find me burying my head in books. I think the world of books opens up my imagination which reality tends to constrict. This post is about doing the best with what you have. And, here, I’ve combined my little black dress with an oversized jean jacket, comfortable footwear and crazy earrings. This is just about being me. Happy, comfortable, and doing the things I love – spending time with self. Go ahead, label me as a gypsy. (I find these labels so amusing.)
Here’s what you can do: Get an oversized light-weight denim jacket or a sporty jacket with prints. Team it up with your favourite pair of flats or sneakers. Add a dash of colour through your accessories. You’d want that colour to pop to give a new twist to your little black dress.
Stay tuned to my next post where I’ll show you how to change that LBD into a different look. So, you don’t need to keep buying more stuff. You can work around with what you have.
