Fashion is the passion. life is passing us bye and before we know it’s gone. Fashion is timeless ever evolving, fresh and new. Fashion, trends and styles jump from the fresh crisp, glossy page of vogue, glamour and harpers. From top end to high street, luxury to everyday ready to wear essentials.
Gone are the days where you could kick back and relax with a glass of wine in your slippers to read vogue after a long hard days work. The world is fast and everything is noisy and there is very little change to catch your breath or have a moments peace.
Fashion weeks and seasons fly by and before you know it another season and fashion LFW show has begun, So much so that now the fashion industry is making it ok and fashionable to wear your winter wardrobe in summer.
The world is going crazy and we’re all on the rollercoaster of life we just can’t and don’t want to get off in fear of loosing touch with the social sphere or life as we know it.
It’s whilst having my haircut in the hairdressers chair I realized life is just too short to miss out on opportunities and things that make life fantastic. It has taken me three weeks to read vogue this month three whole weeks and I’ve still got one hundred pages left to go. I’ve been cramming my down time reading in on the train, in the subway lunch salad queue, making coffee and in the hairdressers chair. My hairdresser Pam at The Hairdressers in Droitwich Spa was very understanding and even positioned the magazine to the right level so I could read and she could cut.
People say you have to take down time, I am not that lucky; my work is my hobby. My hobby is my work and I love everything about it, except inaccurate press quotes and late deliverymen but that is another story. It’s catch 22.
Because of people’s busy lives my job has been created. I’m the worlds answer to the accessory fairy. Making buying accessories online easier and convenient.
I’m finding everything I touch, see and feel inspirational and tangible from my lunch I’m getting ideas. Why? So random. Left right and center ideas that are making it near impossible to do what I need to that day in my job, as each time I have to wade through hundreds of ideas to gain clarity and focus. Many friends and colleagues say not to complain it’s all-good.
I have many a celebrity and celeb stylist to thank though for making my job easier I no longer have to style up an outfit for accessories to go with, as many a celeb stylist is doing it for me ( Many Thanks) to the lovely Alexis Knox for instance who did a wonderful job with the girls from little mix. Perrie and Jade were both spotted last week in Iron Fist shoes and great bang on trend accessories.
The internet is making people’s lives busier and easier and really is here to stay. I think this week has really made me realise that fashion is a wonderful thing to be a part of more than ever and that I’m grateful for all of Ali Mai Boutique’s loyal and lovely customers and I can’t wait to see what happens next!
