“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” – YSL

July 26th, 2008

It’s different strokes for different folks, when it comes to dresses and get-ups. Some people find choosing what to wear, a very difficult task to perform. While others treat dressing up simply like flagging down the first taxi that appears during rush hour.

I am not a fashionista. I only buy clothes that I’m comfortable with, if it is necessary and within the bounds of my budget. I stroll down the men’s clothes section of a mall if I happen to be just near it. I don’t usually go there on purpose, but only to get a glimpse of whats on the racks and to see if some items would dazzle me. More often, most remain uninteresting.

I grew up in a period when the word metrosexual has not been invented and David Beckham was just starting to kick balls. To be simple and rugged was the in-fashion during our time. Suits were a no-no, unless you’re a pimp or a government agent. Being groovy is defined by shirts and denims or cords for pants, and sneakers or sandals for footwears. The only known accesories before were, a zippo lighter, a bandana or white kerchief, and a Visine or EyeMo eye drops. Our generation’s passion to all things natural like the grass had made the simple smell of Jovan Grass Oil as our choice of scent then.

Whatever is the fashion trend, I remain loyal to simple styles in dressing. After all, fashions fade, style is eternal.
