Umeå Hills 90655 -  - TrendGiveAfuck

Actually the whole town lies in a valley, which is why -10°C feels different than -10°C in Stockholm, even though both are coast towns. And may I say, it was pretty damn cold in the evening and at night! Brrrr. Anyhow, Delicious and I have some insight in the fashion, the trends and the style of the Umeå citizens.

Nice? Peaches – Serpentine30 Sep 2009

Nice? Peaches – Serpentine -  - TrendGiveAfuck

One year ago I would have thought this is a butt ugly cry-out for attention and as a reply and output for our frustration Adorian and I created TrendGiveAfuck. TrendGiveAfuck’s agenda has changed since then, but let’s be honest – this is still butt ugly.

Vintage stores go TrendGiveAfuck!

It’s old news that second hand stores offer a big variety of clothes to feed your original style. What surprised me when I browsed through the latest issue of Rodeo magazine was that both Myrorna and Stockholms Stadsmission had ads in it which had a strong TrendGiveAfuck feeling to them. No longer are we talking about these shops as cheap alternatives to get a costume for Halloween or a suit you’re only going to use one time. Now we’re talking hot street fashion and charity at the same time and everybody in the scene just loves it. We always buy second hand and we always give it back. So if you fall in love with any of our outfits you could actually find it in a second hand store with a little bit of luck.

But Stadsmissionen's outfits are one notch higher.

Stadsmissionen's outfits are one notch higher than Myrorna.

Today’s outfit -  - TrendGiveAfuck

When did leggings, your boyfriend’s shirt, leather jacket and leather handbag become the uniform for girls? Thank God the shoes didn’t match or it would’ve been creepy.

By the way, you could repeat this post every 24 hours.

Fuck 3D! -  - TrendGiveAfuck

Are you annoyed by the people and world around you? Do you feel sometimes dizzy walking home in the 3rd dimension? But you DO enjoy your 2D-facebook/twitter/browser life much more than the dirty world out there?

Lazy leggings30 Aug 2009

Lazy leggings -  - TrendGiveAfuck

When leggings hit the streets some years ago it spread like a plauge among young females. They’re comfy, cheap and easy to mix with your outfit. And it’s not like back in the fun days when you’d see them in every colour of the rainbow and patterns that created visual illusions. No, except for the 80’s revival fan base dressed in gold and neon, girls will faithfully stick to  black with a fling with grey or white every now and then.

As long as they wore their leggings paired with skirts, dresses, babydoll tops or over sized t-shirts everything was just fine. Sure it wasn’t sexy but at least they looked decent. But here’s the issue; girls are lazy. And lazy girls come up with trends that fit their lazyness. Why try layers when all you need is a pair of leggings and a top? So what we have now is girls running around showing their bums in public, just because they can get away with it. Lazy girls, why didn’t you stick to your sweat pants? Those were sweet as hell. Hopefully we’ll see a recess on the leggings with the approaching temperature drop.
