If you're not having fun with fashion, then you're definitely doing something wrong. Here's what I have to say: If you have to dress everyday anyways, why not have fun with that? People that don't care about fashion because they think it's shallow and superficial are missing an important point; the clothes we wear are an extension of our personality, a way of saying things without having to actually say anything.

I've never been a rich kid, therefore, I'm always really careful with the money I spend. If you take a look into my wardrobe (which you can basically do by reading the outfit posts in here), you'll see that most of my clothes come from fast-fashion brands, H&M is basically my best friend, haha. I rarely spend a lot of money on a single item, it has to be something that I really like and, even then, I'm not willing to spend more than $200 of my own money on it.

Special pieces in your closet are like the finishing touch of a project. I always like to wear those with simple outfits; here, for instance, the jacket is the star of the show and I didn't want to steal attention from it by wearing anything flashy. Sure, I have a cool pair of sunglasses (borrowed from Alex) and rings, but everything else is quite mute. I think that's a really good approach to statement pieces, mix them up with basic colours and let them shine. It's always fun to take a risk but you don't want to look like a crazy person in a costume, unless that's your thing, in that case, go for it!

// Si no se están divirtiendo con la moda, entonces definitivamente están haciendo algo mal. Aquí está lo que tengo que decir: Si de todas formas nos tenemos que vestir todos los días, ¿por qué no divertirnos con eso? La gente que dice que no le importa la moda porque creen que es frívola y superficial están perdiendo un punto muy importante; las prendas que usamos son una extensión de nuestra personalidad, una forma de decir cosas sin tener que hablar en voz alta.

Nunca he sido un niño rico, por eso, siempre soy muy cauteloso con el dinero que gasto. Si echan un vistazo a mi guardarropa (que en esencia pueden hacer leyendo los posts de atuendo aquí), notarán que casi toda mi ropa viene de marcas fast-fashion, H&M es básicamente mi mejor amigo, jaja. Rara vez gasto mucho dinero en una sola cosa, tiene que ser algo que ame en serio y, aún así, no estoy dispuesto a pagar más de 200 dólares de mi propio dinero en eso.

Las piezas especiales en tu clóset son como el toque final de un proyecto. Siempre me gusta usarlas con atuendos muy sencillos; aquí, por ejemplo, la chamarra es la estrella del show y no quise robarle atención usando alguna otra cosa llamativa. Claro, tengo unos lentes muy buena onda (prestados por Alex), y anillos, pero todo lo demás es medio mudo. Creo que ese es una muy buena forma de usar statement pieces, combinarlas con colores básicos y dejarlas brillas. Siempre es divertido tomar riesgos pero tampoco queremos parecer gente loca disfrazada, a menos que eso sea lo nuestro, en dado caso, ¡a darle!
