You know you're a fashion lover when...

1) ...someone asks you if you know what opium is, and you say defensively, "Of course I know what Opium is.  It's a perfume by Yves Saint Laurent!"

2) ...you hear a group of boys talking about PS1, and the first thing that comes to mind is Proenza Schouler.  Honestly, who would think PS refers to PlayStation?

3) ...you're required to write a personal essay for school on the topic of suffering.  You write about the suffering you went through after the death of Alexander McQueen, and end up getting a good mark on it.

4)...your art sketchbook is filled with drawings of shoes (mostly Louboutins), dresses, models and fashion illustrations, and your art teacher grudgingly accepts the fact you will never produce art that isn't fashion-related.

5) ...grocery store aisles are your runway.

6) ... you find every possible way of relating school work to fashion, to the extent two of your final high school research projects were about the physiological effects of perfume, and the question of why we dress the way we do.

7) ...you're given free time in your computer class to do whatever you want on the Internet, and all you can ever think of doing is watching runway shows on YouTube.

8) ...you borrow 13 fashion magazines from the library in one go.  This is the only time the greedy, hoarder side of you comes out.

9) ...walking into Holt Renfrew's shoe department gives you just as much joy as seeing that cute guy on campus.

*All instances are inspired by my own life.  Got any you would like to share?  Let me know and look for it in future posts!

  2. Ahah the most funny and true post, speaking about fashion, that I've ever seen on a fashion blog :D especially the part about PS...


  3. omg haha funny post! the one about 13 magazines from the library is so me!



  4. He wasn't grudging! I think he really liked them! Also i'm sure the ppl @ IB were like perfume connoisseur. LOL this has got to be my fav from you.

    1. It took me a second to figure out who "brennie" was, but once I looked at the list of blogs you follow, I knew instantly. :D

      Haha ok, let's just say he was amused with my artwork. And uh, my extended essay compared to those people who actually went to university labs and worked with professionals? Btw, after a year and a half, I'm glad to have finally produced a favourite from you. ;)

  5. Wow, this all feels verrrrrrrry familiar ... sort of like looking into a mirror! haha Loved it! They all ring soooooo very true! It's a hunger that never gets satiated! Thanks, sweets, for stopping by to see me this week! xo

  6. # 5 is so me! I absolutely love this Angelica - especially # 2. That has literally happened to me before. PS1 is exclusive to Proenza Schouler in my mind. :P

    xoxo Sootjeelina <3

  8. Your addiction to fashion is the most creative thing !!!

  9. hehe, this was a treat to read.

  10. No way! I just wrote about Alexander McQueen in an essay for English! We must be cosmically connected. (: This post made me grin. I found myself nodding quite often as I read. You're adorable.


  11. haha, sooo laughing at this one! i'm totally with you. i used to get all the fashion mags from the library. and i use my hallway as my runway!


  12. about every single one i can see myself in it!
    how about " Instead of buying lunch and eating, i bought VOGUE."

    can't wait to see you on my blog again!.

  13. That blue bag is really nice! good post dear!

  14. I am the no. 3,4,5,8 and 9...the word perfume makes me drowsy since i married this man who's clan is allergic to. This is a very funny and amusing, hilarious and ahhhhh, very very interesting post!! You're a genius Angelica for thinking something like this! My library though are not magazines but fashion books and on library sale, only fashion books as well. As for the grocery store, this is so me!! my husband's famous line: "We're only going to the grocery store, this is not a fashion show." (coz i took longer to dress and he is in a hurry)I even told him one time that since I could not be a model, the grocery items are my audience and I did the cat walking on the aisle and he would laugh!

  15. This is a hilarious post. I don't do anything... but I get it.

  16. hahahaha...this post made me laugh (and i'm at work, yikes,lol)!!! Thanks for sharing and for having such a great humor in relations to fashion! esp loved the Opium and PS1 one....haha and god, how i want a PS! bag!!! lol....

    good idea about getting mags in the library, i should so do that, plus i save moneyl;) win win situation!

    This is such a great idea that you did for a blog post, it's so creative!

    Happy Friday:D
