Fashion V.S Style !!

Hey my Elevate in fashion Kings and Queens!! πŸ‘‹πŸ˜Š We all are royalty and we should address each other as such!! It's important to know your worth everyday and in every way! Ya Dig?  Take a moment and examine what you have on right examine how you are wearing what you have on...What's the difference between what you are wearing and how you wear it? The answer is simple ..ORIGINALITY AND PERSONALITY...let me better explain my point first let's pause for a moment and reach our motivation station now complete this sentence I never stop... I would say I never stop my persistence πŸ’ͺ It's so evident in this life to always stay strong and stay focused there is nothing you can't do!! πŸ˜πŸ˜‰    

Now when you hear style what do you think? When you hear fashion what do you think? Let's look at this picture:  Image result for two people wearing the same outfit but different ways

This is a picture of two very familiar celebs one is an big time music super star Rihanna and the other a well known actress Julia Roberts. This is awesome because they are wearing the same exact Gucci forest green dress!! Taking a moment to enjoy the beauty of this dress...lovely material choice and wonderful floral design. Also that strap right underneath the bust line is perfection it gives this dress an complete odd look. I love it because the color choice for the strap is completely way different from the dress ODD IS THE NEW NORMAL!! Ya Dig? πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘

Anyway notice how differently these two woman chose to express who they were through this one dress. Rihanna expresses herself as more sassy !!  Notice how she wears this dress with the zipper down just below her bust showing more cleavage!! She also decides to wear a thong underneath this dress and no bra! 😦 This is complete amazement to me but ☝ believe it or not this is a huge trend going about for celebrity woman right now. Rihanna chooses to wear her hair back showing off her features and neck bone structure more. Her last touch was a nice calm necklace just to show she loves a little shine as well πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ This is Rihanna's style!!

Julia Roberts on the other hand would prefer to be more clothed. She wears this dress with what looks like a white slip underneath just so her body would not be too revealed. She also chooses to cover her cleavage by zippering up her Gucci dress further above the bust line. I can tell she is more of a reserved woman because she wears her hair down which is a bit covering of the sides of her face as well as her neck bone and a bit of her shoulders. This is Julia's style!

See as a fashion stylist I have come to know that fashion is more so bout what we are wearing, whether it be the designer or maybe just what we have on in general...hat, sunglasses, pants, skirt etc.. Style is all about you ..your personality it will effect how you wear what you put on !!

 Let me ask you what's the fashion? What's the style? 😏 .........Now before I answer I was recently asked what my definition of fashion is and believe it or not I actually paused at this question...mean while I have done several interviews before asking many designers and illustrators what their definition of fashion was. That's when I realized that fashion is literally your DNA!! You see, no fashion no style...Know fashion..know style..😏 you get it? Check this, we wouldn't know our personal style if we didn't really have anything to wear to truly express our moods and our feelings and our thoughts and our heritage!! People all over the world dress according to their habitat, their ethnicity and their surroundings. Fashion and style are like fraternal twins..they are different but they have some of the same qualities...can't have one without the other. πŸ™…

Now with all that being said looking at these three pictures, when looking for the fashion we would look at what each of these pictures have in common and that is the Jean jacket. Now style is in how this one Jean jacket is worn in different ways....I know you get the idea!! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š

The American professional fashion stylist Rachel Zoe once said

“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”  I love this quote it is one of my favorites because it is completely true. The way you dress explains who you are. That's why it is significant to jazz up what you put on everyday with just a little of your own sauce!! πŸ˜›πŸ˜πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘

A quote by the great fashion designer Oscar de la Renta !! 😍 I couldn't have said this better myself. Everyone loves to wear the latest trends but can you show yourself through what you wear? 😏 

How do you distinguish your personal style?  First you want to make sure you know who you are. Know your personality...what makes you happy, sad, mad, overjoyed, surprised etc... What type of message do you desire to portray when stepping out onto the streets daily?  Are you the all eyes on me type or the I'm fine with just blending in type? Next distinguish what type of material and designs feel comfortable on you. Go ahead try everything!! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ‘Œ Last but not least always silence the noise around you and listen to yourself πŸ‘‚. You see the pressure is always on to look like the models in magazines but that's not true because you were born to stand out there is only one of you so you should always express yourself unapologetically !!

So how do you truly express your definition of fashion? The answer is simple, live out your purpose and expose exactly who you are , your DNA!! Be original , be bold, make an impact and don't be afraid of mistakes !! A wise one once said "never a failure always a lesson" We live and we learn but no one can be who you were created to be so I like to tell my clients upon getting to know them, to show me who they are don't tell me because by doing this you are unconsciously styling yourself!! You are technically showing me your personal style and how you perceive fashion in your eyes!! πŸ‘€πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘πŸ˜  Fashion V.S Style ..two words that are related but are not exactly the same.. The question is are you truly living out it's differences?  ☝πŸ˜‰
