Silver. When I was about 15 or 16 years old – a friend of my mother offered me this silver jacket. At the time I loved it and I’ve worn it a lot, even though everybody at my school made little of me due to the clothes I wore.The truth is that during the three years I spent in high school there were many times when that happened. More than using East Packs (which I ended up buying years later) and all the trendy stuff at the time I really wanted to be different and to dress differently. I always liked to have pieces that nobody had and to imagine a thousand ways to wear them. That was something that always made me happy. Even if I was under construction I had this passion for fashion.

More than inspiring you to just go and copy outfits, I want to inspire you to be who you are and to wear what you want. Dare to be different.

Today I’m still under construction (aren’t we all?) and I found myself thinking about how Instagram looks like the years I spent in high school. Much more of the same, massive trends, clothes we want to buy not because we love it but because someone’s wearing it.  It is kind of a vicious cycle in which we all fall more times than we should.

Anyways, please note that my role here is to inspire you. But more than inspiring you to just go and copy outfits, I want to inspire you to be who you are and to wear what you want. Dare to be different. Because when we wear pieces that we really like – it doesn’t matter if they’re trendy or not – we shine more.

With this being said,  I do not mean that I am not influenced. We all are and this has a good side. But always remember that Instagram is an edited reality that serves precisely to inspire us. And not to make us copy and get crazy wanting to buy everything we see.

Back to the jacket, it still is one of my favorite ones. And honestly, I do not care if metallic coats are trendy or not. I like it and that’s enough to wear it over and over again, more than ten years later.
