Back to black

11 April, 2012

As you grow older and adulthood starts claiming its rights, you tend to become nostalgic and you start to reminisce upon past experiences and periods in your life. The same thing has been happening to me also lately, and this can be reflected into my sartorial choices. 

I've owned this pair of ripped jeans for a long time now, actually since I was in the 7th or 8th grade but haven't worn them too often since then as they would always remind me of my "rock" times. Although it might come as a shock to you I used to be indeed a devoted rocker, wearing extra large T-shirts, ripped jeans and multiple studded bracelets. Although even now I sometimes listen to rock music, I stopped  being so fanatic and strict about my music and outfit choices which back then only revolved around the concept of rock/punk/grunge/metal. It is so funny when I think of it right now, but I guess we all have a darker period in our lives that should contribute to our life experience and memories.

So as you can see from this outfit, there is something darker about it besides black of course, because of the sharp cuts ( the blazer) and tough textures (the boots and bag) but maybe also because of the emotional value this pair of jeans has for me.

In contrast with the dark tint provided by the outfit, I wanted to offer you some positiveness through nature's beautiful colours which are a true inspiration for me during spring and which contributed to my nostalgic mood a little bit. 

P.S. I would love to hear from you if you also had such periods during your childhood or adolescence when you were an "extremist" in terms of music and clothing choices :)


Pe masura ce crestem si viata de adult incepe sa-si revendice drepturile, tindem sa devenim nostalgici si sa ne gandim la experiente din trecut sau diferite perioade din vietile noastre. Asta mi se intampla si mie in ultima vreme iar acest lucru se poate vedea si in alegerile mele vestimentare.

Mi-am cumparat aceasta pereche de blugi acum foarte mult timp, poate chiar in clasa a VII-a sau a VIII-a dar nu i-am mai purtat prea des de atunci deoarece imi amintesc de o  perioada mai "dark" din adolescenta mea, cand am fost  o rockarita  devotata o perioada destul de lunga de timp. Cu toate ca si acum mai ascult piese rock uneori, nu mai sunt la fel de extremista ca atunci in ceea ce priveste alegerile vestimentare si muzicale ce aveau legatura numai cu zona rockului. E destul de amuzant pentru mine sa ma gandesc la acea perioada din viata mea insa cred ca multi dintre noi avem astfel de perioade ce ar trebui sa contribuie la experienta noastra de viata.

Asadar, outfitul pe care l-am ales in aceste fotografii are ceva destul de « dark » ce se datoreaza nu doar negrului dominant ci si texturilor dure precum pielea mata a botinelor si cea lacuita a gentii, dar si a  croielilor in taieturi  rigide precum cea neobisnuita a blazerului.

In contrast cu nuantele intunecate ale outfitului am decis sa transmit si putina pozitivitate prin culorile minunate ale naturii ce sunt o sursa unica de inspiratie pentru mine mai ales primavara.

P.S. Mi-ar placea foarte mult sa aud si povestile voastre din trecut privind anumite perioade muzicale sau vestimentare mai extremiste !
