No Trend No Problem

Fashion is what you buy - Style is what you do with it

Tired of following the trend? Tired of reading my blog that always talk about trend? No Trend No Problem - Fashion today is so accepting, even if you're late in the trend, your outfit will still shine if you make it shine. 

Many bloggers and influencers are early adopter of trends. They get freebies from big Fashion companies, they have a lot of money to spend on fashion foward stuff. But what if... I don't have that much budget to play with the most recent trends all the time. what if.. I don't want to throw away stuff I had from last trend? Of course you can!

Off-shoulder and Choker are so last year - it's almost at the end of its life, but look... Fashion today is so open. Whatever signature piece you wear, as long as you make it interesting, it will still become Fashion.

In this post, my outfit is very casual, it looks trendy and wearable. But, Catherine, off shoulder and choker are so last year though? Yes maam! But if you wear it nicely and pair it off with a nice outfit, you will still promoting fashion. 

When I was a college student, I did not have much money to buy a lot of clothes, I also lived in Iowa so there were not many stores available. So what I love to do is to go to thrift store or swim through my aunt's wardrobe because she has so many collections from the 80's and 90's! It's amazing how many signature or unique stuff I could find. I remember I snatched my aunt's vintage purse. I thought it is really cute and I can so pair it with a feminine dress. I will look classic. I remember I went to Goodwill and got a leather and fur aviator weather. I had a lot of fun styling the jacket with skinny pants, boots, and many more...

Don't be afraid! Play with your old items in the wardrobe. Play with second hand items. Rock it, feel good with it. Go outside the fashion and build your outfit with style.
