Don't Rain on my Parade

I prefer not to get overly personal, so being the diplomat that I am, I'd just say I've had to deal closely with some extremely difficult, immature drama queens for the past few weeks. But it'll all be over very very soon, so the symbolism of the umbrella is very much my bullet-proof metaphor to haters (I've made it out alive, ha). Just like Imran Amed from The Business of Fashion once said in a lecture, this industry has a signifcantly higher amount of gossip, backstabbing and hate, and that there's no purpose in making enemies in a world where everyone talks. So, let the haters hate, jealousy only brings out the ugly. Just like a rainy cloud, it puts a temporary damper on your day, but soon they'd die out and become an utter irrelevance.

  2. Just been through an aweful lot as well, and seriously this quote ("Just like a rainy cloud, it puts a temporary damper on your day, but soon they'd die out and become an utter irrelevance") is spot on.

    And you look awesome, so what the hell with haters, huh? You rock!

    Love,
    Jolien

    1. Aww Jolien, you're sweet, but actually no, the haters aren't hating on my outfits (well maybe they are, I don't care), but were just immature and downright unprofessional whilst I had to be "tethered" to them, sort of a catch-22 sitch, I can't win, but now, the bond is broken and I'm free! Yay!

    1. Thanks Glenn, but as I also replied to Jolien, this time, the haters were just hateful for no reason. Observers told me it was jealousy but whatever it is, they will soon be forgotten, thanks so much for the support, it means a lot ;) xx

  8. Nice out fit! And glad awful experience with the drama queens are over. Be happy and glad you are able to take that in strides. Yes, these annoyances in life become irrelevance once you put things in perspective. Cheers and nice weekend.

  19. oh my GOD, I'm drooling over those pair of Givenchy shoes, the fur coat, and the trousers, well probably because you styled it like a fashion BOSS, Nathan. I've always loved black umbrellas, and that belt is just a quirky touch up, lovely. and PUT YOUR HEAD UP CUZ YOUR FAB DIMS IMMATURITY, YOU ARE PERFECTLY FABULOUS, DON'T LET A BITCH BRING YOU DOWN DOLL, oops I over-dramatically just preached.
