We all are unique… we have different tastes, life experiences and expectations. Now the question is whether we enjoy being different or if we are trying to be somebody else. An ad from Pantene, ‘Labels Against Women’, perfectly presents how gender inequality still exists and that we should never downplay our personality just so that we are being accepted. We should always be strong and shine.

Being unique always makes you stand out from the crowd so what’s not to like about it? You should be proud that you are brave enough to be yourself. Now back to fashion… I think that an all black outfit will always be a great choice when you need to be yourself, but stay chic at the same time. I’ve fallen in love with this black lace dress (it must be the train) and I just can’t wait for the summer to come so I can wear it on its own. The leather jacket and ankle boots create the image of a biker girl, while the lace dress adds a feminine touch to the outfit. If we take a look at this fall’s collections presented during NYFW by Donna Karan, DKNY, Diane von Furstenberg, Diesel and Michael Kors to name but a few, we can notice that black has definitely made its presence on the runways.

Now, just a tip for a great start of the week… keep in mind that you are in control of your own life and if you truly believe that each and every minute brings you happiness, then trust me you’ll have a fabulous day even though it’s Monday. Be yourself, stay positive and always smile!
