One question, which remains in the forefront of my mind is this "Are you fashionable?", to which I answer with a resounding "NO!"
Initially you see, I consider the term fashionable to be somewhat of a fashion follower, abiding by the latest trends. Fashionable people are trendy, they have a closet which is constantly changing with up-to-date high street garments.
I choose to buy second hand or make my own clothes, which represent my personal style rather than following trends, clothes which fit and flatter my shape, rather than succumb to what is currently 'in'.

Clothing and fashion, to me, is not just fabric which covers our modesty, or which keeps us warm or cool. It is an extension of our personality, which represents who we are, at any given time. Perhaps I interpret clothing in a different way to some, but I appreciate fashion and I like my clothes, so maybe that means I am fashionable after-all?
How do you interpret the word fashionable, and would you consider yourself a fashionable person?
