Fashion, Turn to the Left.

Do you consider your self stylish and what is style anyway? Today is one of my words off the wall blogs – we are having the documentary Advanced Style  where the lives of  Seven unique New York women are depicted. It looks fascinating, here is the trailer for it: 7 Unique Women.

I have not been known as a stylist belonging more to the alternative scene over the years, caftans and flairs do not make many of the fashion magazines  although there were some very unique clothes worn by my fashionista friends. So lets have a look at what society has to say about advanced style, here are my 15 quotes that I have chosen to consider:

1. Albert suggests that it is difficult to walk through life with a sense of style through just having knowledge, as this is limited. Imagination is what has you stand out from the pack.

Style is a much used word, how do you use it , in your clothes, in your ride, I have the first triathlete pushbike released in Australia, it’s very smick, or in the way you relate to others. There are many ways to be stylish.

Namaste until Easter Monday my dear friends.

One thought on “Fashion, Turn to the Left.

  1. I enjoyed reading your reflections on style, Rod. The women from the Advanced Style doco have created a great example of how getting older doesn’t mean you have to wear pastel colours. While our mother isn’t quite as stylish as those gals, at least she has worn a fairly bright blue ‘outfit’ for the last ten years! I loved the interview with Susan Sarandon about her most recent visit to Burning Man. She is also a great role model. I also like the pic of the woman in the white t-shirt ‘age is the new black’, with the pink fluffy jacket. So groovy!
