Vintage Is The New ...

Fashion is a reflection of our culture, so what does our fashion say about our culture – In Glasgow, Brussels, Europe? Our cities play host to many different nationalities and cultures. Is our diverse society a reflection of what we wear and how we wear it? If we take now, we are coming into autumn and fashion hot mess are asking themselves what the autumnal trends are. Fashion hot mess came across this question asked to model Sara Blomqvist (Swedish Model, face of D&G) whose answer was shouting individuality and making a style our own. We could not agree more as our style is based on originality, individuality and standing out in a crowd. Our eclectic style is modelled in more than one way, but the favourite way to stand out with style is through wearing vintage pieces. In vintage stores it’s hard not to channel some fun individuality to add to your hot eclectic style! Everything is one of a kind and isn’t our style just that! Dame Vivienne Westwood we salute that you pronounce it heroic to stand out with fashion!

Glasgow and Brussels both have a range of vintage shops which fashion hot mess have shopped in and loved what both cities have to offer. One difference between both cities and the vintage was the price. Brussels flies the flag for recessionistas and being able to stretch our money further. Well, that was until Glasgow fought back with some competition to fly the recessionista flag too! Vintage Guru the HOTTEST new vintage store in town opened its doors to Glasgow in August and fashion hot mess went to check it out and catch up with the lady behind the magic, Jennifer. Prices we love, clothing we love, accessories we love and the hot staff we love. Vintage Guru has a lot of love to give, so feeling like you need a little bit more love? You can never have enough! Check out Vintage Guru and let it love you!

The Kids Are Alright?

They are the reason why we have so many problems in society today / their quirky approach is an inspirational reminder that we should still have fun with it.

They’re all anorexic / they can be any shape, their size is their natural build, size depends on who they are wearing.

Women abuse it and binge creating a new unpleasant female in society / we should all be allowed an outlet to relax and escape our demanding lives.

The young, models, drinking habits – recognise any of these opinions? I could bet all the glitter in the world that the opinion more commonly formed and the one you recognise is the negative. Our society is one which generalises and has a tendency to generalise on the negative opinion. Negative generalisation is a plague that a majority our society has caught.

Open a newspaper and it is likely there will be a publication about young people and the ‘problems’ they cause. It would be nice to open a newspaper and see a more positive article. We fashionistas know that young people have a huge influence on the fashion world, and wait for it, a positive influence! The fashion world is laughing in the face of the negative generalising society! Out of a recent survey it was noted that British Teenagers spend the most money on clothes in comparison to their European counterparts. This is comprehensible when we can see young people expressing themselves through their fun, quirky style. Why else would Love magazine have devoted their Autumn / Winter Issue to the young and fun under 21? Why else are young icons inspiring designers from Emma Watson being the face of Burberry to Pixie Geldof taking to the catwalk during London Fashion Week for Jeremy Scott? Lindsay Lohan, Miley Cirus – they are fast becoming inspirations. The young are not only inspiring the designers, but the fashionistas amongst us. The fashion world is drawn to the style blogs of the young who demonstrate an entirely different and original outlook. Taylor Momsen is well and truly still in her teens, but her style is one replicated times over whether it is with her hair or make up or clothes. Fashion hot mess salutes Taylor and all of the young for expanding the sea of where we catch our inspirational vibes.

The kids are proving their fun outlook and why they are a positive at least with style and the more aged are turning their noses at creativity and feeding the plague of negative generalisation of the young. Stylish teens are staring in the face of these negative individuals oozing confidence and inspiration, willing them to do a u turn, think positively and

for once think that the kids really are alright.
