When Fashion And Food Collide – We Are What We Eat

Blank Instagram Post (6)One man’s junk is another man’s treasure, so why can’t so called “junk food” give us something that we can really chew on…like fashion? If you’ll notice, all of the things that are generally unhealthy to put inside your body – animal fats, fatty oils, cholesterol – are actually GREAT to put on the body. (Natural soap is nothing but animal fat, fatty oils make the best lotions and cholesterol is good for the hair.) Whether you should use these products or not isn’t the topic of today’s blog post.
My focus for this news update is when fashion and food collide. The same ornate culinary salesmanship that entices you to buy that sorbet pancake wrap or the whip cream pastry provides some beautiful templates for seasonal ensembles. From heartburn to eat your heart out – fast food can become quite elegant when used as a fashion inspiration. Sometimes…

Are you what you eat?

Moschino’s 2014 collection was a hit on the runway, and I believe that the main reason is because people want to have fun with their clothes. I totally get it and agree, but… Enough is enough! Oh well, I guess that’s what happen when you play with your food.
Junk food is just one of the options you have. Same goes with FAST FASHION. I know that many people would like to make ethical purchases but fast fashion seems to them like the only way.  It’s not. You can reuse your clothes before recycling them, and make your purchases more thoughtfully. For example by shopping vintage clothing or buying “new” clothes in thrift stores. You can also get the Good On You App (See my post HERE). It is the easy add on that allows you to check brands for their impact on animals, people and the environment as a whole.
Never forget. Each and every one of us buys clothes and through those purchasing decisions we have a huge impact on people, the planet, and animals.
Junk food might be cheap, but who said you were supposed to eat it anyway? As a nature lover, I sure (try to) stay away from it! Ditto with the brands that are not doing the work of green business. But I am the kind of person who tries to make the best of everything, and I find a lot of great things in what everyone else may call junk. Hopefully my food-inspired fashion collages will help you find the best in the everyday things around you, and inspire you to make beautiful treasures out of the “junk pile”. There is no such thing as junk – just a junky attitude.
Enjoy and feast your eyes!

  2. You are SO good at this Dominique. These matches are inspired! The wrap with the red bag, green skirt etc – all the colours match perfectly. Nice to see the blue and white wrap dress appear again too. x

    2. Yes, it is not a fun time at the moment. I have been working very late at night and almost every weekend since February. I am tired and I look tired too. I need a break. Thankfully, I will have some time off work when you visit. I know you had some hard time too. Hope you are getting better my friend. We all deserve to have some pleasant moments to help us recharge our batteries. Keep well Linda. xoxo

    1. Thank you so much for your support Brigid. 🙂What a beautiful way to start the day. Hope you were able to rest and restore on your social media break. I need one too, but thankfully Lisa and Darren will be here soon so I will definitely have lots of fun and creative time with them. This should help me restore. Have a beautiful day and thank you again for believing in us.

    1. It is great that you are making healthy and sustainable choices. I also try too make eco-friendly choices and think twice before buying something new. With the clothing it is easy for me as I know the ”GOOD” brands but I find it hard with the food as almost everything is wrap in plastic. Arggggg! Thank you for sharing. I appreciate.

    2. I know. ARRRG! This is soooo annoying. Thankfully, I found a little market near by my place that has stop using plastic -and the fruits and vegetables are really fresh, but for all the other stuff I have to go to the supermarket. Why do we call them supermarkets? They are not super at all.

    1. Lol 🙂 No, I would not have eaten that crape. I don’t have a sweet tooth. But don’t put chips or fries next to me. I simply can’t resist. I know it is not healthy but I am addicted to salty and spicy food. Thanks for stopping by Luda. ❤️

  4. Fashion AND food?! Now you have me drooling!! 😂
    The saying ‘you are what you eat’ sounds especially nice in German: ‘Man ist, was man isst.’ Both – ist and isst’ sound just the same but the first means are and the second eat. 😊
    That zebra cake is just sooo awesome!! Wish I could do it but I’m not sure if I’m patient enough. 😉
    Beautiful and inspiring post! Just like you. 😍

    1. Oh I’m smiling! I like the sounds of the expression in German even more. I have not done the zebra cake. It looks like a lot of work indeed. You are a patient person Sarah. I see all the effort and time you put in your artworks. I bet with your fabulous creativity you would add a twist to this zebra cake. Have a wonderful Sunday my friend. xoxo

  5. i am never disappointed when visiting your beautiful posts Lady D. it’s so refreshing at times to get posts with bite and depth. At times l look at this and reminisce back on my days working ladies fashion merchandising in London, being surrounded by an explosion of colours daily… then l don’t .. then l think l don’t need to l have 3C Style and the infamous Amigo’s 🙂

  6. Well, I don’t know if I want to go shopping, but your food pics made me hungry!
    I have been contacted by a green company, FRE, to partner with them to promote their skin care line. I think you would really like it, and their environmental responsiblity😊

    1. I don’t know this brand but I’ll look for them. By the way, I wanted to use some of your food pictures, which are very inspiring, but the landscape format did not fit the collages, unfortunately.

    2. Actually, the majority of my pics are vertical. IG favors vertical format, I wonder if something else was wrong with the pics you wanted 🤔
      You could also let me know which ones you might be interested in and I can reformat for you. Have fun with Darren! Look for that karaoke 🎤 machine 😉
