A Style I Would Like to Steal for a Day? Why? What I Would Wear

Listen to the Podcast

I don’t know if any of you ever thought to yourself that maybe you were born in the wrong era. I think I should have been born either during the Western or the 1950s. I have always loved the history behind those eras. I mean I know that there was a lot of racism during those times and it was tough, I know that. The thing is that even today we still experience racism, so much violence, and uncertainty, but apart from that, the thing I like from those eras is the fashion.

The 1950s is really the era I will base my post on, and I won’t get into any historical details about fashion. I am going to simply talk about one style I would definitely steal for a Day? Why? What I would wear. Let me start out easy, do you recall the movie Rebel without a Cause? The actor was James Dean who shocked the United States with a performance that still electrifies the screen twenty-five years after his sudden death before the film’s release. The fashion or costumes presented in the movie was something I find simply amazing. You can see where I am going with this right, well the style I would most definitely steal for a day would be that of James Dean’s.

1950s Fashion

Why do you ask, I think the simplicity of the clothing says it all? A simple pair of jeans, a white shirt, a leather jacket, and a pair of black boots – you can’t go wrong. I heard that the sales of white T-shirts shot through the roof when the movie was released. The thing is that since I was a kid, I have always liked simplicity when it came to buying my clothes. I wasn’t into loud or expensive clothes and I usually could match a shirt with several pants, or a pair of pants with several shirts. I always keep a pair of black shoes. I felt and still do that black shoes go well with just about anything. Even to this day, I find my wardrobe to be made up of jeans in dark blue and light blue colors, with one pair of black jeans. I do have a black jacket but also have a flannel jacket as well, which happens to be red and black. I do have a pair of brown boots, which I wear occasionally. The reason behind my fashion steal would be because of its simplicity. I really don’ like to struggle to try to figure out what I am going to wear each day. I mean we have enough troubles in our life without having to figure out what goes with what, and then worrying about if it matches or if anyone will notice. I like it simple, and straight to the point. I mean come on, when you go out to a fancy dinner, or a function, what is normally worn, black attire – right. It’s a fashion that just won’t go out of style and has been around for a long time.

So set me up with a comfortable pair of jeans, a white shirt, black boots, and of course a black jacket – preferably leather, and I can’t go wrong. So, whether I go out on a date, go shopping, go out to dinner, or hang out with some friends, I like to keep it simple like James Dean, and “A Rebel Without A Cause” and that is the way I would go.

Strange but true, I was born in San Salvador, as an abroad US citizen. It sounds strange, but you see, my mother was 5 months pregnant and happen to be visiting San Salvador. She slipped and fell in a pool and well, I was born. I am a twin, but unfortunately, he did not make and I did. My mother’s side of the family happens to be well of, and I had the opportunity to live a nice life early in my childhood. You know, private school, servant, nice home, and vacations. Things change when my mother decided to follow my father to the United States and well, that is where my story begins. I started a blog a while back, but life sort of hit and I left it behind, but now as I am a bit older, I decided I needed an avenue to share my experiences with others, while at the same time allowing me to open up and talk like I am on someone’s couch, I guess you could say. This blog will be more like an open book, created by experiences that I have had throughout my life. Experiences that many could relate to and what I did or how I handled it, you know after the fact. You never know there just might be a piece of information, idea, an option that someone could use and it would help them through the experience. Just remember these are my experiences, things I have been through, work through, and lived through – it does not mean I am right, but it does not mean I am wrong – it is simply an experience.
