Passion for Fashion??

The other day I decided to brave the mall while Daniel was in class to pass the time.

I have not been shopping in a very long time!

For those who don’t know I attended The Art Institute of Vancouver for Fashion Marketing and Management. While in school I was always up on the trends and knew what was in for the moment but pass shortly. I was at the mall every weekend and if we wore an old t-shirt and ripped jeans to class we would be be-headed. You always looked your best!

While walking through the stores the other day I was overwhelmed by the amount of clothes and new styles. It wasn’t even enjoyable anymore. I take it more as  a good thing I guess. Instead of spending tons of money on clothes like I used to, we now have money for other things, but it used to be  a passion of mine and I am sad to see it isn’t there anymore.

Don’t get me wrong…I still like to wear nice things, find clothes I like, and dress up every once and while, but it isn’t like it used to be. I wonder why it has changed? It is something you grow out of? I guess I have just filled my life with other passions and desires…

I will show you a few of the things I really liked though:

There is a new “exotic boho” trend going on… I think it looks more tribal and native american than exotic boho but none-the-less it really caught my eye. This sweater from H&M really tempted me but it was about $40 and I wasn’t willing to spend that much…

I love the colored pant trend that has been around for the last little while but couldn’t find the right pair. The other day I found a great pair of fitted khakis at Gap I finally liked and love them!

Lastly, I love maxi dresses! Last year I bought two and loved them! They are great for the hot days when you don’t want to fuss with wearing shorts, they are easy to wear and very comfortable. I found the perfect simple one at Khol’s (it is more flattering on a human being) and it was inexpensive…
