What I Think About Fashion Blogger Phenomenon Nowadays

Hi! Sorry for being away.

Let’s talk about fashion!

I think fashion is a part of everyday life. I also think fashion is what you make of it. The outfit you have on today reflects some sort of style whether it is your own personal style or a style that has set a popular trend. All in all, it is fashion. From your shoes to your hair, you cannot escape fashion. I personally love it. Our own sense of style or fashion tells a story about us. How fun!

When I went into senior high school eight years ago, my life did a 360 turn and I was completely and utterly stunned by why. As my years go on, I am trying to keep up with all the new fashion styles, etc. Apparently, it’s not working too well. For most families, money doesn’t grow on trees, so I basically “allowed” myself to “lower” my standards, so to say, and now I shop like anyone else, but rather than buying the most expensive things, I head for the clearance rack first. It’s ridiculous to spend that much money on something.

For years now, name brands have become more and more popular – as well as expensive. Today, I see several students in the street, café, or mall with extremely high-priced clothing, jewelry, etc. I’ll be honest, it disgusts me. Our parents have hard working jobs and most of the things you get are coming from your parent’s salary. Is that fair? When you become their age, would you like it if your children spent your money? Because that’s how it is.

Words every lifestyle and fashion blogger should live by.

Je m’intéresse à tous les sujets, aussi sensibles, gênants ou prêtant à controverse soient. Je mets un point d’honneur à essayer de comprendre certaines thématiques et pousser la réflexion un tantinet plus loin que ce que je vois à la surface. Raison pour laquelle je vais parler du hijab aujourd’hui …

Ce qui m’a frappée au point de m’amener à me poser des questions depuis un certain temps, je vois beaucoup, mais alors, une multitude d femmes qui portent le voile autour de moi. Veulent – elles en faire une mode, ou au contraire cherchent – elles à se rapprocher de leur Créateur Allah SWT, et ainsi respecter Ses prescriptions ? Les réseaux sociaux, qui sont la vitrine de notre vie de tous les jours, permettent de se rendre compte de l’ampleur du phénomène. Pas un jour ne passe sans que je voie la création d’un Tumblr d’une hijabiste, d’une page Facebook, ou encore sur Instagram (à l’image des bloggeuses Dian Pelangi etc) … 

Le débat est ouvert …
