But if you really know me, you probably know how I feel about fashion – it just takes over me in a way I simply cannot explain. And that’s one of the many reasons I’ve resorted to blogging. That, and the fact that I promised myself that I would do something about my love for fashion. Like most of you out there, I dream. Some big ones, some not so big ones. The bottom line: I wish I could own a little boutique agency in a beautiful part of the world someday, which would exist only to inspire people.
As far back as I can remember, one of the first movies I watched was My Fair Lady. And believe it or not, I was in love. In love with literature and musicals, Audrey Hepburn and her horrendous language, but for the most part the beautiful dresses worn to the races and other events. And then Pretty Woman came along with Julia Roberts and her gorgeous sense of style. I tripped, stumbled and fell head over heels in love with that stunning red gown.
So, there. I get a lot of my inspiration from the movies. And the TV series I’m constantly watching. Or the blogs I’m following. Basically, everything I see that catches my eye (or “calls to me”, like I’m constantly telling people). It helps that I live in a place like Dubai, where all things bright and beautiful reside. The mall culture in all its glory gives me a chance to try different styles. And that’s exactly what I do. Explore.
