We dressed up and took a taxi in to the city. But oh Lord, what a depressing thing to "go out" in Stockholm. It's even worse then when I still did go out in the weekends, long before I meet M. Stockholm is pathetic in this sense, I know it's sounds harsh but seldom do you see so much sad people, all dressed the same, with this sort of desperate hunting, too tipsy, too boring and let's not even mention the sad, sad atmosphere. No one seems to have fun, it's more about prove some sort of proud point of ones existence with jealous eyes looking at each other rather then give away a smile. It's such a difference vibe from, let's say, the more southern European cities and I remembered why I stopped going out in Stockholm and only went out when being abroad.
Yesterday I witnessed that It's not even the same as I recall it - it's worse! I was more happy to have a family and to have my well dressed, gorgeous, international man then ever! I truly felt like we were so wrong among this crowd. Sorry Stockholm's night life, but you wont see much of me out there! I'll rather spend my money on a trip and enjoy the social, fun and more life loving surrounding - breathing an open minded, international feeling elsewhere or simply just arrange lovely dining and wining at our own and friends place!
It truly don't feel like people is getting out to have a fun time. It feels like a charade, a show off in up nose attitudes (I guess they are so insecure and don't really like it either and this appearance is just the easiest to put on) and when I complain about how people dress, it's to say that either they dress like all young bloggers our there with a lot of latest trends (but who cares when everyone adapts them clonal?) or to "naked/sexual" at a too old age (I love a mix of ages, but more when you respect yourself and have a more sophisticated sensualism then just getting your decollate in someones face, that stands for all ages by the way) or just don't care at all. I also feel like people are afraid to stand out, be personal and embrace the variety and to make an effort to the ambiance.
For me, and again this is my blog and my personal opinions, I get drastically tired and bored of a view like that. I love being outside Sweden for that fact, where I find people indulge more in vivid styles, elegance, true fashion, colours, to who they are, with great personalities not seldom packed in a yet so personal and unique style, either you go for elegance, bohemian, classic or I don't know what.
I would chose odd and different any minute over boring, clonal and doll.
Ps: ... and to write a small conclusion: I would actually totally accept all ways of dressing, if people where social, well behaved, interesting, polite, respectful, fun and looked like they had all the fun in the world and spread the love around. Ds
