The Problems with Aesthetic & “-core” Culture

Have aesthetic & “-core” culture gone too far?

If you would like to connect with other people interested in fashion & niche aesthetics, get more outfit inspo, discuss aesthetics more in depth, and attend virtual events like AMA (Ask Me Anything)’s, join my Discord server:

My name is Mariel, and I started getting into fashion in the past few years and am learning so much about it. I’m drawn to fashion as I believe it is an art form that not only allows individuals to express themselves but also creates a history and record of different time periods and generations. I’ve had a lot of fun learning how to put together outfits and use different styles to tell a story through the way I dress. I started this channel to share what I learn along my fashion journey and hopefully help others learn and find their style as well.

I post videos at least every other week, mostly regarding fashion but may include a few beauty/makeup and lifestyle related videos as well. If you’re interested in this content, please give my channel a shot and subscribe!
