I’m elated to receive your amazing responses over the last blog. Thank you for your participation and sending entries for Princess Runaway. I would love to raise more social issues through my blog and looking forward for your love and support.
I am back with another to talk about brooches as promised. But first things first, a brooch was a pin featuring a large central cut jewel surrounded by diamonds or pearls. Women fastened brooches to the necklines of their dresses. At the beginning of the century, women pinned a brooch at the center of their scooped necklines near their breasts or attached a brooch to a ribbon tied tightly around their neck. By the end of the century, however, women covered more of their chests and used brooches to hold their collars in place at the base of their necks. You all must have worn it at some point to hold a piece together or just to embrace your outfit.
But this blog talks about general notions and monopolies of elites and the segregation of classes that have been existing in the society. Since 18th century women and men who are from the royal background have been wearing different brooches to mark their eliteness and royalty. And thus the classification of society was set to take place. Queens and Kings,all over the world still practice the inheritance of brooches and so as any elite family.
We are striving for a world where casteism has no place, where we do not define any individual’s capability based on his/her family background,thereby making this world a better place to live,so why to have any such string attached to fashion,making it a differentiator?
Remember,Fashion is for all. It’s for everyone, at their own confidence and level of anticipation and understanding.
So who are these royals and elites and what do they do?The Marxist theoretician Nikolai Bhukarin anticipated the power-elite theory in his 1929 work, Imperialism and World Economy. Present-day state power is nothing but an entrepreneurs’ company of tremendous power.
And now you re-consider who you are! You’re an entrepreneur, an individual who seeks to bring about serious changes in the society. You’re headed for a journey which is as challenging as anyone else’s. I,like many of you would like to touch the lives of millions through what I do i.e., Critical Fashion Blogging,so am I not privileged to be an elite? You’re not someone who should be looked upon as an elite. Ofcourse,you do and that’s your strength.
One should feel elite to be rich and rich to feel an elite. And we women need to break the cliche of brooches being limited to royals. What say you women? You’re a girl boss of your own and an entrepreneur by choice and you’re the one who would define your style. So wear brooches and show the world its necessary to first feel an elite in oder to be an elite.
My outfit here would tell you how a girl boss looks like. I chose my favourite colour of any season,Lavender!
The lavender bodycon dress which gave my curves a perfect shape with same colour summer coat was my pick for the day. I completed the look with Lavie’s amazing pastel collection embellished bag which will never go out of fashion as pastels is all we need this season. Never to miss,these beautiful silver stilettos from Steve Madden’s recent collection. And of course, the brown swarovski studded brooch was all I needed to feel an elite and thus I carried it like a boss!
So to all the queens out there,wear your style and smile and embrace the struggle with fashion,this time.
WE CHOOSE FASHION TO EMBRACE OUR ELITENESS.
