How to survive the mad & sometimes wild scene of fashion?

Do we take a walk on the wild side, full of love and print-on-print passion and possibly find ourselves isolated? Or do we fall prey to peer pressure, crippled with near hysterical angst and beige madness, quashing our dreams of being clad in purple velvet, faux fur, white boots and a matching headband?

If that's a face you've seen before, you're not as isolated as you may think, it's happening all around us.

As the angst lifts, I'm venturing out to assemble a reasoned analysis of the situation. With all guns firing, I am launching into a blazing world where sparkling wine runs free for the greater good of fashion and hopefully before the fear takes hold, I will find my way to being a trendsetting, brave fashionista
