A Must See Documentary

6 Feb 2015

Most of the times we focus on how within the fashion industry there should be accepted other demographics of women, and the first thing we discuss is that is not fair that women who are tall and thin represent the fashion world, that more "curvy" women should as well be part of that representation. However, although body types are extremely important to take into the equation, how about age?

Not only we are so focused on body tapes but youth is in a way, the backbone of the fashion Industry. I LOVE watching documentaries, and Netflix have really good ones, especially related to fashion. One documentary I watched called "Girl Model" shows how model agencies operates to find the "perfect model", and they will usually take the very young girls that are not even allowed to be hired. Totally recommend this documentary too since it gives a deeper look on what models go through in order to secure a job in an agency.

Buttttt this post is about another documentary that focuses on a demographic of women who are in the opposite wavelength of youths. Most of the models we see in magazines or tabloids are from the range of 15-26, and of course celebrities or super models around 30-40, maximum it reaches 50 but its not that concurrent. What about women from 50 and up? They got style you know, and so this documentary "Advanced style" shows exactly that. The best thing is that it originated from a blog and so you can follow up this incredible project. http://advancedstyle.blogspot.com/

It opened my eyes because I never really thought of fashion + elderly, it is indeed very interesting to take into consideration. I won't lie, it did made me tear up a bit, especially when something unexpected happens during a fashion show. But I loved how after all these years, these women are still so strong and represent their own individuality through style and are not afraid of showing it regardless what type of style they posses. It gave me hope in the sense that I still have a long way ahead because I don't know if this happen to you guys but for me, sometimes I forget that I am still young (just turned 20 last year) but it was such a big deal for me since the number 1 was not in front anymore. It freak the hell out of me. We sometimes need that reminder that although life is too short, it is also too long, and we have so many things ahead of us.

Italia Trip | Museum Aventures 2.0

5 Feb 2015

I feel a certain type of peace and spiritual nurture when in a museum. It's a place where you can lose yourself in time and wonder what was it like to live in a different period of time. When I see those artifacts, I imagine who might have belonged to, what was it used for and the value that once that object meant for someone...is interesting to also see that the object is still here while that generation of people are long gone.

The paintings are also something else. The colors used, the patterns and the little angels surrounding you its an unbelievable feeling. This might sound a bit odd to say but tourist ruin everything. Just think about it, you are in a place that is extremely valuable, that you should really take your time to appreciate every single detail, every single inch of that space you are in...but then there they are, tourist blocking your way, especially those who are in groups with a guide that explains along the "tour". I just wish I could have the entire time in a museum only for myself. That will be such joy!

I used to be one of "those tourist" too, the ones that go, take a picture, walk, take another picture, think "um thats interesting but lets move on". But you don't really appreciate anything like that. Every time I've been in a place, now that I look back, I can't really say I felt it and breath it because I was way too busy taking pictures.

Isn't ironic that Im saying (writing) all of this but there are pictures above? A bit yes, but this time was WAY too different. I let my family walk in front of me (although they kept telling me to hurry up otherwise we would get separated from each other) and really, REALLY took my time to admire every single thing. Its funny how when you see a painting as a whole, its very pretty but when you start to see detail by detail the story changes. So these pictures I took, it was more of a focus of a part of the museum and they are so beautiful...is like looking through other eyes, through other angles. There are so many things that I would not have noticed if I really didn't stop and stare.

The experience was great. I totally recommend all of you to just take a moment from your busy and really breath the whole experience in and observe everything.
