F*ck Ivy and everything else

F*ck Ivy and everything else

Fashion

Rubriken hänvisar ingalunda till att jag gått ner mig i depressiva tankar eller skiter i allt och alla. Det handlar heller inte om att jag är trött på saker och ting även om det finns stunder då jag är rätt utmattad. Just nu är inte en sådan stund dock. Men nog om det. Rubriken syftar på en bok med samma titel som handlar om designern Mark McNairys syn på livet och mode och denna juvel hittade jag i min favoritaffär Colette i Paris. McNairy säger helt enkelt att man ska känna till och erkänna det traditionella, men undergräva det närhelst och varhelst möjligt. Det är min livsfilosofi i ett nötskal.

Det innebär helt enkelt att så länge du känner till reglerna inom mode får du bryta mot dem. Detsamma gäller etikett. Därför skiter jag fullständigt i om det är korrekt eller inte att komma till ett affärsmöte med uppvikta jeans, sneakers och en kavaj. Det finns inget som heter klädkod i min värld. Klädkoder är till för osäkra människor. Jag och Magdalena Ribbing håller med om det mesta, men här skulle hon nog säga emot mig. Vad vi däremot håller med om är att man ska kunna sin etikett utantill. Det finns en gammal tro om att man inte kan bära rött till ett bröllop för att det indikerar att man legat med brudgummen. Här tycker både jag och fru Ribbing likadant. Hon är inte lika frispråkig som jag, men, ha på dig vad fan du vill och varför i hela fridens namn skulle du vilja stoltsera med att du legat runt (enligt en gammal ”regel” som dessutom kan avfärdas som en myt). Så, vad var meningen med denna predikan? Jo, klä dig som du vill, var du vill och vid vilket tillfälle du vill så länge du vet vad som egentligen förväntas av dig!

    Awesome style in display, Thomas. Matching the casual with the formal is not for the weak! Of course, I have a special spot for this jacket!

    So true! I cant think of much i despise more than dresscodes. Why would one ever show up wearing something one dont even like, just because its expected? Love your blog bro! Keep it up! /B

    I couldn’t agree with you more and I did break a rule by wearing a pair of slightly distressed jeans paired with a polished shirt to the office yesterday. Why not as I feel good about this whole outfit?!

    Great styling here!

    I agree with you my dear!
    I been thinking so much about that kind of issue ( the day is coming, remember?!…) and I been feeling a freedom to wear what I really want that I never felt before. I mean, who cares if you wear red with pink if you feel like you’re the one?! Self confidence is the key!
    I really love your photos here, you look adorable and stylish as always!

    Lots of love,

      Heaps of love,

    Love this outfit, Thomas! That blazer fits you like a glove! I’m all for breaking conventional rules and all… and enjoy attending weddings where the ”dress code” is not the typical. In fact, at the end of this month I will be having the pleasure of attending my cousin’s wedding and she made it ”The Great Gatsby themed” in spirit of Halloween too… so that should be fun! Leaving me some room for creativity in the outfit I wear 🙂 hehe have a wonderful weekend love xo, sharon

    Great styling! I agree that all fashion rules are meant to be broken in order for us to produce new trends, and explore our own style.

    OMG yes! Everyone needs to break rules every once in a while. Fashion is all about expression and so no one should tell you otherwise! I love wearing sneakers with my dresses even though society tells ya no. Keep doing you! Looks great 😀

    Yes, another rule-breaker! I mean, truly, who says fashion has to have all these ”rules” anyways? The point of fashion is being unique and making a statement with what you wear, so I’ll wear black and brown together and white after Labor Day, and I won’t care who says otherwise (because it’s usually Vogue – and we all know how I feel about them now haha). You rock for bending the rules and looking dynamite while doing so!
