Did I lose some of you with the word "designer"? What, you can't relate to people that make a $3000 jacket out of Karl Lagerfield's belly button lint? You can't envision yourself wearing the same outfit that a model who considers her saliva lunch, wears on the runway? You don't think you can pull off "military zombie" makeup on date night?! Yes you can!
Designer fashion is alot like that girl you knew (or were) in high school. You know, the one that was really outspoken and wild; pushed all the limits with her skirt lengths, life choices, and crazy things she said. The girl that seemed to have cornered the market on Wet n Wild lip liner, black eyeshadow, and boyfriends. Or anyone that wore a feathered skirt, baby doll socks, lumberjack hat, or safety pin jacket. Fashion designers are that girl! Underneath all that, "Look at me!!", what they're really saying is: "Look at me and like me, 'cause I'm just using this pointy cone bra that I'm wearing, to get you to notice me". You did notice and probably envied how brave and cool they seemed, but knew that there was no way in heck you were going to walk around with cone boobs...It's all about interpretation my lovelies, and anyone can pull off any high- end fashion look and make it work for you!
