crisp outfit
but wtf do you mean by style remaining the same.
that would fucking suck. just as "fashion" evolves
so must personal style.

the phrase in my title is a quote of Gabrielle coco Chanel! i think she means that whilst fashion is transitory, style is something that is not determined by trend or "fashions" it is something that is inherent to the individual and therefore does not change. If you look at it from the point of view of the individual person, rather than collectively, i find it makes perfect sense. It is also relevant in this case because my (fledgling) blog is about Vintage clothes being as relevant today as they were when they were made and that often, it is more the quality and "style" of the clothes that ultimately attracts us to a piece than its relevance to a current season or trend. i would also question whether fashion truly does evolve? often fashion is a bout regeneration, taking one step back and two forward. if you think of fashion as art then just as a da vinci is a as beautiful to me as a picasso so is a vintage chanel dress compared with a current season giles deacon skirt. Style unifies our tastes fashion is something that comes and goes. but i can see what your saying perhaps this quote is rubbish, i quite like it though :) x

yeah. i know who it's by; she's a brilliant designer.
i still think it's silly.
I’m not saying that personal style changes with fashion. I’m saying style changes.
As you grow, hopefully your style does too. I personally hope that my style has changed over the years. Not just because the trends have, because I have. Otherwise, we’d all be stuck the same rut we were in 5, 6, 10 years ago. I know I’m being vague, but it’s hard to explain. :C I dunno, maybe we have different definitions of style and fashion; maybe it’s because you’re older than me and have already graduated the developing years and found your fo sho style. I will agree that they are very different. I think Chanel had a point, but she missed it.
