Pinterest has become an absolute haven for me. When I’m bored, need inspiration, have nothing to do, or simply want to keep updated on the latest trends, I go to Pinterest for all areas of life and style. I want to share some of my absolutely favourite pins because I’ve realized a pattern: my style and what I love is defined where the classic meets the dangerous.
To explain further, it’s easy to be plain. It’s also really easy to be completely obscene. It’s about finding that perfect balance between the classic and the totally out there style that people have trouble with at times. Sometimes I look at designer clothing and think that God himself couldn’t have created anything better (Ahem…McQueen), and other times I look at something and ask myself whether the designer was on the pipe while creating his vision (or hallucination). Here are some editorials, fashions, and trends that I find are perfectly on point.
I like taking classic intricate details, like the beading above that reminds me of antique lace, and mixing it with current trends and styles to make it even more unique. And well, some of these pictures are just plain fierce. And that’s how I like it. The ability to turn something classy into something classy with an edge is a talent that all too many can’t master; that’s why those who can sit on the pedestals they do.
