My First outfits after "coming back"

my blog about 6months ago. the bottom 3 are the oldest. can you notice a change
in the style?
“Style is always in fashion, but fashion is not always in style!” -Yves Saint-Laurent
Defining "fashion" is a bit more complicated than you would think as the term "fashion" is very broad but for the purpose of this post we can say that Fashion refers to the 'hot' item out there, usually garments or accessories. style is how we wear those items. I find style to be the expression of who we are (or we are not) and as fashion is closely related to society, style is closely related to us individually. I am not saying you are what you wear but you express who you are thru your style....... That is whether you like "fashion" or not. Your style speaks about your personality.
I have said it before here, for me respecting my personal style is way more important than respecting the fashion trend of the moment. Of course, if the two meet at times, then great! I have realized recently that I am not a fashion lover but rather a style lover. I value and appreciate much more the way people genuinely wear and relate to garments than the garment itself. From there my fascination with fashion blogs. I must confess that I enjoy more (much more) watching at urban styles and street styles than a fashion show or the "official" fashion proposal made by fashion editors. I am going to be even more honest: Most (not all, but most) shows I find to be abstract and ..... boring to a point. But when I see the same pieces from the show wore out on the street on a more candid way then I I can appreciate it more and decide if I like it or not.
I could go on on the same subject for pages and pages, but really wanted to post this thoughts to hear from you: Do you consider yourselves to be a "fashion monster" who loves, lives and breath fashion OR more like me? How do you see fashion? What about style?
On an unrelated note here, I've been ask about my mint wedges a lot and those are an old Steve Madden ones BUT for those interested in cute similar options you may want to see: This Peep toe wooden wedge or this super innovative ones OR this chic wedge sandal, very comfortable too, I know by experience and they are on sale. I hope this helps for those looking for mint or green wedges.
Hope you have a great, happy week.
