Victime de la Mode
Oh look, another fashion blog! I had intended to start this blog years ago but figured I had nothing unique to offer in an already saturated market. So how will I stand out?
Here I hope to share with you my love for vintage fashion, current trends while being wallet-friendly and eco-conscious, the occasional splurge on pricier items, and designs I make myself.
I work in fashion for a super huge company, but here I plan to share what inspires me as an individual. Fashion is so much more than just buying "what's trendy" right now. Fashion helps us feel good and exude confidence, fashion is history and changes with the context we're living in, fashion is a form of expression and art.
I've always had a bit of a struggle with my love for fashion - it's not always a pretty industry and it has caused a lot of harm to our planet and its people (watch True Cost and RiverBlue if you don't know what I'm talking about). A love for fashion is typically associate with a need for consumption, but it doesn't have to be this way.
This vintage dress previously belonged to my grandmother. When she passed away in 2017, I inherited it along with some other beautiful unique pieces. This dress had some damage to it but it fit so perfectly and was so special that I carefully fixed everything by hand. I've never felt so elegant in a dress as I do in this one.
