I was going to be really lazy today and post this Maje advert, write a couple of lines about how much I love it and how inspirational it is, and pretty much leave it at that; but it got me thinking. Yesterday I brought the vast majority of my clothes back from Oxford, and when I opened my suitcase to unpack this afternoon, I realised how integral Maje is to my wardrobe - I own about 10 different items from the past 3-4 collections. So then I thought that it would be cool to follow the advert with pictures of me in my Maje clothes, and started off with this classic black dress...
I really love it, but I hardly ever wear it; I guess I just think it's boring or something. So then I thought, maybe I could try and make it a bit more exciting by adding things. I started off very simply...just a scarf and my trench coat. Already I thought, wow, I need to wear this more often!
Just as I was about to put on the next dress, I remembered how i'm constantly talking about how I need to be more adventurous when it comes to what I wear. What better way to start off than by experimenting with a single black dress?! So here it is... I had a LOT of fun with fashion today, and that's the way it should be! Although I wouldn't necessarily wear all of these combinations, i've definitely discovered at least 2 or 3 new outfits and I didn't have to spend a single penny. It's taught me how important it is to think outside the box, and i'm going to do things like this again and again.
So I guess I wasn't lying or being hollow when I wanted to say that I found the advert inspirational...I just didn't know it at the time! One advert has completely shifted my way of thinking!
