It's Not Who You Are But How You've Become




Have you ever wondered how you've become in this point? For me, I always ask myself how I've ended up being a street fashion blogger for these couple of years. I risk myself not only doing a job which seems to be invisible in Bangkok, Thailand, but keep pursuing my dream to the point that I have come too far to turn around.

I have been through so many f*** up situations in my life, so no wonder why I have my guard up from others all the time. I used to care how people think about me, what if they didn't like me and what if they turned against me. And because of that caring attitude that makes me fall for people trick all of the time. Recently, I was used by a brand to be just a shortcut for their own benefits. Oh gosh! I was so pissed off about it but well that brand will never exist in my memory anymore. 




Anyway, six years ago, I was just a sweet style girl who studied for the best future in her own hands. Trust me, I was really gentle and naive. I wore only dresses and something that only "in my comfort zone" Because I still didn't know who I was or what I really wanted to do in life. Until, I went to America (Florida and Chicago) and lived my life over there for a while, then I realized that this world's not beautiful like fantasy dream. I was influenced by so many good and bad people, and I guess those days were my "eyeliner" obsession since I just didn't want to give a s*** about what society expects in me anymore (And I still don't give a xxxx in nowadays lol) Or you can called me reckless kind of girl back then. I partied way too much, self-destructive routine on and on and on.

When I back to Bangkok, I still had that "attitude" in me or I can admit that I have changed a lot (In a good way though) like at least I have an immunity against people and the society. Those days were hectic, together with the tragedy of my boyfriend since he passed away. So, I had to deal with my suppressed emotional moments. I still remember how hurt it was to be in that situation.

However, I still tried to find where I belong and where I would be fitted. And that's how my street style's played a big role in my life. I've started to feel like wearing tomboyish/masculinity outfit more than sweet and happy colours style. I hardly touch the dresses nor mini skirt because I just don't like them anymore. 











Experiencing in fashion industry for a few years now, I think my style is pretty stable in this street vibe and I feel much confident in this way. At the end of the day, I feel like it's not where I stand at the moment. It's not about fame or being famous fashion blogger but it's all about who I have become. I have my own way of life, the way I work for The Equinox Fashion and really happy about it. I'm here not to compete with anyone but to express my style, the ideas that I can express in verbal because I believe that "If you do what you love, and when you set your goal in it, everything you want will be attracted to you in every way. You will meet right people in the right time with the right opportunity"



To the dream :)

    I'm so sorry to hear you went through some heartbreak. I can't hammer home how much I admire you and your amazing attitude to life. Look at how far you've come, and what a success story you have written for yourself. I love how you are fearless and strong in standing for what you believe in, be it through fashion, career or peace of mind.

  31. Gail, I am fit to burst with proudness and happiness that I have gotten to know such an amazing, ispirational young girl after reading this. First of all to have gone through what you have and to then share it with us, knowing that you probably have the biggest smile on your face because you know you've overcome it all! & I'm so happy that you stopped giving a shit about what society expects, because your fashion and style wouldn't be yours if you had that attitude. All of your dreams will come true because your determined and like you said, you've come too far! & it's a lovely thought to know that I might see that all happening!

    I can't wait for your arrival & to have a chapter of your life here getting started!

  32. This amazing personal post has made me feel i know you even better without meeting you ! You have been through and experienced so much, and you've been strong and determined throughout which is something i admire so much. People change, it is inevitable and if you fight it then you are consumed by fear. I have changed and lost people, sometimes i regret it but then if i was me now with those people i wouldn't be able to be me. Now i don't care what others think and i'm more interested in those who care about me for me

  48. Thanks for taking me through your personal journey! Really loved this blog post of yours. I found it very interesting and it's great how you've evolved and come to this point. In my opinion, I think it's great that you're a street style blogger. Keep pursuing your dream and eventually, you'll reach it. To quote from the novel The Alchemist: "When you want something so badly, the Soul of the World will do everything to help you achieve it".

    I lived in Thailand for 8 years, and to be honest, I can't think of a better place to live in when you're a fashion blogger. I mean, come on . . . The fashion in Thailand is just VERY inspiring in so many ways -- fun, unique, funky, and even eccentric in a lot of ways.
