How to Be Bohemian?

I have just been watching a programme on the BBC, how to be bohemian

Towards the end of the show it went down the route of criticising Hipsters - the current trend around the media.  

Personally I don't care what are person is or does - if dressing a certain way makes you happy then go for it and it really does not matter what people say.  

Something I did notice was the idea that being bohemian is dead, in fact commercialisation has destroyed this.  

I think it missed what is really happening, bohemian ideas and trend have always been commercialised but because of the internet the pace of commercialisation has increased.  

This pace of change does not stop creativity in fact creativity is even more important.  

And when it comes to creativity in your dressing - just craft your own style and make sure you are happy with it.

Not Feeling It

It has been a while since I put together a blog post for Terrace Gent and to be honest it is because I have not really been feeling it.

For some reason some of the recent collections have not really been rocking my boat - some of this is personal but also it is a bit of a comment on some of the collections.

The personal perspective is quite normal for me with a period of re-invention - this is looking at who I am, what I have been wearing and how I want to feel?

I have given away some of my clothes to my partners lad - bits of CP & Stone Island casual item that I don't feel comfortable in these days.

My storage unit has also built up a few boxes with items that I am just not comfortable in from a work perspective - it is probably fair to say that I am toning down my business look.

From the past I am going to be bringing back some of the more utilitarian brands like Uniqulo, mixed in with vintage pieces and some of my favourite designers like Nigel Cabourn, Comme des Garcons & Stone Island jackets.

I am also really not getting into the trainer thing - I have collected some Reebok x Garbstore and adidas Originals also the way but my true love is shoes.  So I have invested in some Clarks Originals and Birkenstocks to get me through the summer months - these are new brands for me personally.

Periods like this are always good for anyone interested in clothes and I would always advise people to do this - not driven by what you see in the shops but by your own personal sense of dressing.

So I am going to start posting again on a regular basis and I hope you enjoy my new selections.
