Guest Post: Superficial Girls

I am sitting on the bus to run some errands. Besides me, there is a girl in her early 20s, perhaps younger, whose bag attracts all the ladies' glances. She is carrying a Chanel. I do not know the exact name of that model; I can only see the double C logo,the golden chain and the outstanding Chanel style. A phone rings with the last disco hit and she takes an Iphone from her bag. She is carrying some books and papers on a Tous folder and she is reading the last Vogue magazine, launched yesterday.
She is not particularly stunning, her hair is not done, she wears no makeup and her clothes and shoes just do not match but despite all this she is an icon. I can see she cares about fashion and maybe she is a blogger too.
In this bus, today, I saw a fashion victim.

  1. This post has made me think about how too much emphasis is placed on 'must have' items rather than individual style...

    ...and yet I still love those quilted chanel bags! :p

  2. In my city I don't see things like that. There isn't so much fashion victims. Is that good or bad?

  3. We dont have such things here in my city,too..In Athens i am sure there will be some..I believe fashion for every person is a completely different thing and there are people with "style", created by their own taste and it doesnt have to be super expensive or from a famous designer..

    I totally agree with you! That is definitely a great thinking.

    @Agnis, @Krystallia
    This is difficult to be seen here too, in fact, people stared at this girl because she was like a catalogue of trending items.

    I definitely support the opinion of those of you who say that Style is a summary of things that, most of the time, have nothing to do with money and luxury.

  5. I see that ALL day long in the grocery store, beach, etc... Although, without the Chanel bag!! But, I think carrying a Chanel bag makes up for a few fashion police sitations.
