purity ring

White has always had many different associations for me, typically wedding dresses and smocks for baby's baptism. Occasionally wedding dresses which bear resemblance to something a baby wears to get baptised. Naturally I found it surprising that designers had such a level of detail when working with all white and was delighted with the spectrum of different textures. Pleats, embellishments, embroidery, laser cut... you name it, it has graced the catwalk in one form or another and that's just within the last five years. The characters who wear white are just as intriguing, whether they be beguiling doe eyed girls with sharp faces or the typical IT girl (be it fashion blogger or fictional figure in the form of an editorial). With the amount of guides instructing young twenty-something women on 'HOW TO WEAR WHITE THIS SUMMER' I had all but given up on seeing the shade as chic. But how wrong I was and you'll forgive me for losing faith if you were as annoyed by Cosmo or Seventeen magazine's lack of vision as well as anti-feminist sentiments. I have no interest in wearing something because it's trendy, rather, I see something new and exciting because it has transformative powers.
