ABSTRACT MIND IN AN ABSTRACT WORLD

I've been really occupied with papers, theories, & stuff: it almost made my mind explode! Just FYI, I'm currently majoring Communication, Media Studies in concentration. It's like the more theoretical branch in Communication Science, we basically learn about communication theories in a holistic way, studying media effect: something more abstract than let say public relation, journalism, etc. And now I'm studying Cultural Studies: a very broad, absurd, philosophical subject - I must say that this subject almost drive me (and all of us) crazy. In addition, we also study about Critical Theory (it includes Marxism with his Communist Manifesto, Frankfurt School, etc). For God sake, they are way too abstract & intangible! Something that involve the realm of ideas....

And why the hell I tell you all about this? Well, it's just some prologue to my latest thought. I've been studying about Postmodernism and realize that THERE IS NO REAL REALITY: ALL IS ABOUT PERCEPTION. Consequently, this world we live in is an ABSTRACT WORLD. There is no universal truth.

So, how does it relates to fashion?
Basically, all I want to say is: fashion has no boundaries & there is no absolute perception about what is fashionable & what is not.
My second notion is, you don't need to have only just one style: because life & our identity keeps changing, so does fashion. Postmodernism propose an idea of "fluid identity". If right now you want to be a punk-rock and later you feel like wearing tutu skirt & girlie stuff: GO AHEAD! Just keep experimenting with fashion & style guys!!

Okay, I'm not making an essay so I shall stop here now hehehe
Sorry but I've been really intrigued by "abstract things"
WELCOME TO THIS ABSTRACT WORLD!

About my outfit, I've been obsessed with abstract print (perhaps it related to my state of mind) lately & found this amazing abstract print legging in Hardware Store at Pondok Indah Mall! I already wear this legging on my previous post,btw... Loove it ♥
