For those of you who haven’t met Sophie, let me introduce her to you. She’s a more irreverent, cynical, shallow and blatant paper version of me. You’ve seen her before, all dressed in pink and flowers, lace and pastels, with her pretty lips and her perfect hair. But don’t get fooled by that sweet and sugary packaging, the inside is more complex and raw than it could possibly be (hence the name of the blog). That’s why I wanted to devote a section to one of the many sides of Sophie, the shallow one. How it works? I take a beautiful and inspirational quote and let Sophie twist it and turn into her own trivial masterpiece, a frivolous but always stylish statement. Materialistic and almost profane? Yes, that’s what makes it fun (Shallow Soph takes over the keyboard sometimes).
“Everyone comes with baggage. Find someone who loves you enough to help you unpack”.
“Everyone comes with baggage. Find someone who loves you enough to build you a big-ass walk-in closet”.
I’d rather have the closet! Who needs help unpacking when you can organize, fold and store all your belongings inside those shiny and new drawers?
From Shallow Soph, with love…
