Politics vs fashion

Behind this smiling face you see every day there is a troubled soul! Maybe not all of you have noticed that I come from Greece. At the moment, Greece is a country that is suffering a great deal because of corrupted polititians that allowed the International Monetary Fund to invade the country.
This is an unfair economic war and Greece happened to be the first victim as other European countries will follow the years to come. All in all, it's an undeserving path for the whole world to go where the profit rules and the individuals suffer but that doesn't matter.

I'm trying to strike a balance between my political aspects and my interest in fashion and it's soo difficult (you have to take my word for it). As you know already, I try to be a very reasonable consumer and try to make my own clothes buy second hand and remix. But I quess I still feel quilty.
I have to fight the stereotypes, I think. Can a well dressed female have radical political opinions? And God forbid can a woman be equally interested in fashion and politics in the same time and feel passionate about both?


  1. Of course! I think that's like asking if a doctor can do anything other than see patients. Fashion is only one aspect of who you are, it's not the entire person at all!

    Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

  2. Definitely--a well dressed woman can have radical politics and outspoken positions. I generally keep mine off my blog...because I do not want to be tracked by my government. I'm only half-joking. The jacket you are wearing is gorgeous.

  3. I know what you mean...but...
    You look great!
    And i love this scarf!
