I have been criticized for trying to get attention from my appearance: “Why look good every day?” or “Why walk like on the runway?”, “Why try so hard?” People are asking me those questions since I discover the world of fashion (basically since 21 years ago) …
The answer is very simple: Fashion is that thing that saved me from being sad.
I’ve always cared about my clothes. When I leave my apartment, I like to look pretty for myself and people around, I want to make you feel something with what I wear. My ootd are always reflecting my mood in a way.
As well Fashion makes me braver. If I have a difficult day ahead or need to do an important speech or it’s a first parent meeting in my girl kindergarten (yes, that makes me even more nervous than applying for a job) or simply it’s one of this days when my stress levels have been through the roof, I open my wardrobe and think which outfit will make me feel happy and enjoy the day ahead. And when I find one I feel like “Ok! I can do that, or I can at least try”.
No matter what happens with my life or career and wherever I go that heart of glamorous girl in Shanghai will never be gone. This is who I am, and it’s never been an act and it’s never been marketing. This is me all the way to my core and fashion is a big part of my life.
