Before we begin, here's a question: How often do we take risks? Once a year? Once a month? On a daily basis? Or even multiple times within twenty four hours?
Alright, that ended up with multiple question marks.
There is always this chance meets percentage factor when it comes to taking risk. Be it you risk your life saving that cat on the road, or cheating in your high school final year examinations, there is always a difference in the percentage of success and failure. We always believe that the chances of taking such risks would result in an equal fifty-fifty percentage. It is either the cat survives or we survive. We did not get caught or we eventually got disqualified for our examinations. Yet, we fail to realize that there are other factors that disrupts the initial commensurate percentage. The car could be coming at a high speed that both the cat and you might not be able to survive, or you are seating at the back end seat and you think the teacher would not concentrate on you but then there is always a blind spot and eventually causing you to have a higher chance in getting apprehended.
If the chances of endeavoring such risk induced activities favour more towards the failure aspect and eventually paved to an undesirable result, should we blame it on fate? Or should we put the finger on our choices for performing such risks? We cannot deny that taking risks is actually fun; that adrenaline rush you receive from knowing that there is this chance of getting caught. However, in life, we cannot simply perform such risks solely for the sake of that fun factor. There would be a time when we come across a diverging path: A) Fabulous life you have always wanted but given a different percentage of chance to have a fruitful or an unsatisfactory outcome due to the 'risk' factor and B) Safe and stable life but you hate your job, which path would we undertake?
In fashion if we do not hold the slightest bit of eagerness to take a risk, we are unable to make that leap. Yes, despite the disparity between success and failure, but the real key that separates between the actual successful ones and those who are not doing so well, is the willingness to act upon such risks.
Here are some risks ventured by fashion that I believed reaped wonders:
1) Pajamas Party in Bed and Out of Bed
Roll out of bed still donned in your silk blend pajamas and proudly head to work. The worries you've got is to tame your mane, brush your teeth and the ubiquitous question: 'Which shoe should I wear?'. If it's Fall (aka weather right now), please remember to at least throw over a coat.
2) Do You Even Gym?
Alexander Wang gave the green light to go to work after your three hour long gym session - in your sports attire. Lol, jk. There is this old adage that goes: Birds of the a feather flock together. So if you're interested in guys who visits the gym regularly - and if you happen to hate exercising - make sure you pretend to do so too. In your chic sports attire. Don't say I never teach you some tricks.
3) Haute Couture For Ready-to-Wear
Go to a supermarket in Chanel. Period.
4) Anna dello Russo Replicator
Grab multiple prints from your wardrobe (for the fun, do it with your eyes closed) and stack them onto your body. Some might still be afraid to partake such a route, but hey, don't you agree that Leandra looks amazing above?
