Forgotten Pieces

I haven't worn this coat for over half a year. Having a blog - and liking to take pictures of a reasonable variety of outfits - makes me have to go looking for pieces I own, which I don't wear as much, and give them a new life. The fashion industry is planned to make us all feel like we're constantly out of fashion and that we need those new adorable Gucci shoes which will be so over worn by instagrammers they will be out of trend within a few months. Of course, there are certain trends I love and usually buy but I feel like we need to stop a moment and love the pieces we own more, even the really old ones. If not, we can just give them to a charity or sell them on ebay, making sure they won't go to waste. I was not in love with this coat anymore and now I kinda like it again. It really is all a matter of perspective, isn't it?

Não vestia este casaco há cerca de mais de meio ano. Ter um blogue - e gostar de tirar fotografias de looks variados - faz com que por vezes me dedique a procura de peças que não uso tanto, no meu guarda-roupa. No fundo, obriga-me a reapreciar o que tenho inventando novas maneiras de conjugar essas peças que quase foram 'marginalizadas'. Por muito contraditório que isto possa soar, - já que o meu blogue é, no fundo, uma plataforma que incita irremediavelmente ao consumismo - acredito que é possível inspirar-vos a olhar, tal como eu, para as peças que já há muito hão sido esquecidas ou, quem sabe, que as vossas mães têm, e olharem de forma diferente para elas.
