I agree with Aureta Thomollari the idea of fashion and clothing being epheremal is upsetting,
because when you buy a piece of clothing, jewelry or shoes, you want it to last you a very long time.
Following trends wont make you happy, being yourself and creating your own style makes you happy.
Trends are fun to watch but dont let them control your style, the people that dont follow trends are the one that you look up to and make the trends.
There is nothing that bugs me more than when people tell/say what is In and Out of style, when magazines tell you what is hot or not, like we are machines that cant think for ourself.
There is nothing wrong taking inspiration from people or trends as long as you are comfortable with it.
Dont be afraid to be yourself, choose your clothes carefully and spend your money wisely.
