This blog has been the ultimate outlet to spread the fashion advocacy that I gave birth some 30 months ago. The advocacy did already exist long before this blog was created. However, I believe that i dress up and sleep blog may have helped propagate my C.L.E.A.N. Fashion advocacy.
Now time has come, and fashion evolution had taken place. I admit I am more open now to fashion astuteness. I can embrace the diversities and idiosyncrasies.
Bit by bit, these have paved the re-definition of my fashion advocacy. This evolution is never a separation from what have been a deeply embedded fashion sense, but basically an up-scaling of something good to better, minute to large.
So here's what has become to the newly-delineated fashion advocacy.
What is it to be C.L.E.A.N?
Less and More
Art in fashion
Color coordination is not a monotonous display of colors. It is the harmonious appropriation of similar hues and shades from the color palette in one fashionable look.
I used to appreciate "the lesser, the better" maxim, which is a minimalist outlook. But as more and more fashion savvy individuals are creatively expressing themselves, I find myself more driven to them. I tend to appreciate gradually the concept of over-accessorizing and endless layer on layer. The more the merrier; the bolder, the better.
I believe there is some sort of science in fashion. Everyday, as we get dressed, the choice of clothes and accessories, the mixing and matching per se is an activity which what we call in science as an experiment.
One great example of experimentation, which is in contrast to color coordination, is the donning of incongruous colors plus an abundant mix of prints. It may appear like a mess to those who adhere to color coordination but it is indeed a fashion statement to many.
2011 is the year that I have been quite audacious enough to take a leap out from my "norms" and step into new and exciting fashion challenges.
Though I am trivialy detouring once in a while from my own fashion tendencies, but still, I do somehow end up getting back to what has been deeply-rooted into my senses. See my look above. My top still has the color on one of the neon hues on my leggings and wearing black wedges that coordinates with the black color of the top (print) and blazer.
If fashion is one form of science, it is more extremely a colossal outlet for the arts.
I live for art and I live with art. I love colors, hence there is this love for painting - as manifested in my hobby of playing with crayons, paint tubes, etc. I may not be gifted with the hands of an artist but I can scribble and make simple sketches of clothes. So there's the line connecting arts to fashion.
One can actually correlate fashion to both art and science. If mixing and matching clothes is experimentation, more so it is indeed art. The ability to effectively able to put up a look - the collective donning of clothes of variable prints and colors and textures - is seriously an expression of the arts. Our body is a canvass, and ourselves are live mannequins.
One cool thing to those people who are effortlessly able to impress me and can explicitly be listed to my list of fashionable human beings, is that aside from possessing laudable confidence and daringly able to strut and shout to the world his / her individualism through fashion, these individuals are otherwise nonchalant.
