Growing up in a big family. Being a middle child. Wearing hand-me-downs and *ugh!* sharing. Some of the things I used to hate as a kid. (Although, now I do acknowledge it’s perks) Realization struck recently, that my styling choices and preferences tend to skew towards being different, choosing the less common alternatives.
Thus the avoidance of denim jeanswear and reluctance to shop at Charles & Keith, Zara, Topshop and Mango. For fear of someone recognizing where by stuff is from, or worse still owning the same stuff as me *the horrors*!
However, all these rules and conventions went out the window with this series shot by Clifford and styled by Zoe and I.
The models shared a vintage oversized denim jacket while contrasted in black and white maxis and paired with high cut sneakers. The harmless play turned to jealousy and fighting, before triumph and a fit.
Before the dust settled and everything went back to normal.
And they lived happily ever after. The end. (that’s how all my stories ended, at least)
But on a more personal note, I like that fact that I have so many siblings and appreciate that my sisters don’t make noise when I raid their wardrobes 😀 *THANK YOU!* Cos they are also free to raid mine as well. Although the trend is that I am more of the raider than the raidee. hehs. And I think sibling rivalry is part and parcel of growing up and learning to work with people.
I mean, where would you be if you didn’t learn how to share?
So in addition to sharing your love with your special someone this Valentine’s Day. For single cygnets (like Sarah), share your love with your family and friends because they are important too!
