real selves






blouse - self made
blazer - zara (gift)
skirt - vintage
flats - peacocks
bag - no name
belt - peacocks


as i told you
i do silly jobs at fashion week
like zipping things up
hand sewing buttons
moving clothes here and there
matching it with right shoes
and all other kind of silliness
..
because none of what i do there is really important
my job makes me invisible
to all the 'real' workers in fashion
various vip wannabees, stylists, make up and hair artists, designers, models and other
and i absolutely love that
i always feel like some sort of sociologist
doing a research on human nature
'cause i get to see their real selves
..
if i would be introduced to those peeps
as a blogger
or an art historian
or even an archaeologist
they may look at me differently
and act differently
but.. i'm not introduced in any way
i'm just a girl moving clothes from here to there
and i'm invisible and therefore not important
so they drop the act
..
it's a funny thing
what a dash of fame can do to a human
and how swollen an ego can get
..

  1. It must be fascinating to watch. And your outfit is excellent.

  2. Hard to believe, that noone notices you backtage given your great and colorful style ;-), but on the other hand it must be quite amusing to watch those people who take fashion too seriously.

    1. hehe.. well, i got an outfit compliment from a model (male model, none the less, so i guess i was noticed)..
      i don't think they take fashion too seriously, they just take themselves too seriously

  3. I am exceedingly jealous that you get to rush around backstage at Fashion week. I'm also jealous of that blouse. But that's a whole other issue.

  4. I can only imagine that there are some swollen egos prancing around - as well as some genuinely great people I'm sure! I love to people watch - very content to blend in with the wall and take it all in. I bet its fascinating. Do you have trouble keeping a running commentary/nature-show monologue from playing in your head? "Notice how the alpha-male checks to make sure there is an audience as he ties his bow...."

  6. labels really change everything, for many people. a complete shame they don't see you, and a wonder, as i believe you'd be the brightest thing in the room in all senses of the word...

    but i love that it affords you the role of covert sociologist. that role is fun.

    1. maybe i'm too bright for them.. so they refuse to see me (and, color blocking trend never really got accepted in serbia hehe).. anyways, i'm glad they don't see me :)

  7. I work on a campus that combines a secondary school, a CEGEP (college) and a University; as a middle-aged woman, I am COMPLETELY INVISIBLE to all those under-21s and you would not BELIEVE the astounding shit I get to overhear. Because I'm completely invisible, apparently.

    Although it's hard to imaging a situation in which you are not the brightest dish in the room!

    1. under 21s are oblivious to anyone but themselves.. i also find them insanely annoying (mostly 'cause they are too loud, and have a total of 127 words in their vocabulary, 98 of them being curses), i can't imagine myself surrounded by under 21s all day long.. you deserve a medal, lady

  9. It has to be fun seeing fashion from the outside. How everybody moves and behaves, and that nobody notices you (a hard thing to believe).
