I can honestly say I’m not fashionable. I don’t follow fashion. I don’t dress to impress. I think most female clothes are ugly. Especially shoes. Yuck. I actually feel a bit envious of male shoes because they look normal. There can be ugly ones too though. I can’t understand how females can walk in those high heels. I can never find decent shoes in stores. I’ve been looking for summer shoes but everything is too sweaty or too ugly. Luckily the summer in Finland wasn’t that hot. Even though I don’t follow fashion, I know what looks good and I have found none. I wouldn’t be found dead in the kind of shoes they have these days. This summer ripped jeans were trending. I had one pair of those too. In the 90’s! They don’t look cool. It makes young people look like they have nothing else to put on. Don’t get me started on Crocs or UGG boots. It’s a fashion disaster. Fashion, in general, bores me to tears. No offence for those who does like it. It’s just isn’t for me.
Fashionable is not only clothing. It’s also in entertainment. Some people change favourites like they change underwear. They watch movies that are popular at the time. The same with music. I’m more loyal to my favourites. Sometimes I’m even behind some trends because I realise things slower than others. I think I wrote this one before but Marvel movies weren’t my thing when it was most popular. I still don’t care most of them. I only like Thor and Guardians of the galaxy. Thanks to certain actors. Others are blah. Of course, Marvel is always pop because of all of the new movies coming out. Please make them stop. Also, make all the sequels and new adaptions stop. Enough already. Make something new, please. I especially don’t understand all these Fast and furious movies. I watched one and that was enough. It was so dull. If I want to watch car racing, I watch a real one. That’s one fashionable movie thing I can’t understand. Hollywood is running out of ideas. I go and watch a movie if it’s interesting enough and not because it’s fashionable.
Music is another thing that I’m loyal to. I still listen to the same music I did when I was a child. They still sound good. I love Spotify for the reason that you can find old songs you haven’t heard for years. I have written in a notebook about the songs I liked and the songs I didn’t like. It started in 1993 until 2001. I searched for them on Spotify and I found a lot of them. They still sound great. There are some great songs today but nothing compared to the older songs. I don’t even search for new songs and the latest trends in music anymore. I have so many old favourites, I don’t really need new to stuff to listen to. Except from the bands and artists that have been around for years or decades. Their new music is always more than welcome.
The only fashionable trends I follow are in design and photography because that’s what matters to me the most. If I didn’t I would fall off the wagon, so to speak. If I want to work in the industry I have to be interested in what people like and maybe make up something new. I’m not an inventor so the latter might be difficult.
Fashionable or not, you should always keep up with the times. Things change so rapidly these days. Thanks to the internet, you find new information faster than before. It’s more of a guideline than an order you have to go by. I’m not that fashionable but I know what I like and respect other people’s opinions. That’s a trend everybody in the world should have.
