about me.

about strangeness and charms and me.

hello! i'm dahi tamara, born on the 12th of january 1988, a half-korean and half-german designer living in germany.

while still studying philosophy and anglistics i have started my own business, an onlineshop for jewellery and design - i've always wanted to do something creative and to earn my own living through this.

my first experience with blogging started in 2009 when i ran a literature related blog. i have always loved books and also love to put my own thoughts into words.
strangeness and charms was initiated on the 4th of march 2012 with the thought to let the world have an insight into my views of all the things having a core importance in my life: fashion, culture and capturing beauty in a photographic way.
strangeness and charms is not a pure fashion, lifestyle or photography-related blog. It's a representation of all the things that matter to me in my life, etched with passion and love and, to quote leo tolstoi with, the strong believe that 'the world will be saved by beauty'.
beauty can be found in manifold derivations. for me it can be found in life itself, in music, in art.
i want to inspire my readers and prompt them to seize the day, to enjoy life and to live it with passion, joy and love.

but indeed my greatest concern is to empower other women to believe in their own beauty and strength.

many people believe that fashion is something superficial, something temporary. they believe that it creates pressure and leads to consumer stress because otherwise you will never be en vogue.

fashion is an art – and you are the canvas.

i once read this quote and instantly it won my art.
i believe fashion to be an art form. maybe it's greater than art because you live your life in it. thus everyone of us should treat it with the respect it deserves.
fashion can have a huge, positive, amazing impact on your life.
fashion has the power to bring out the best in you.
fashion can encourage you to find your own style. it can grow your self-confidence to meteoric heights.
fashion and style had this very impact on my own life. i want to give my readers the possibility to experience the same!

in my opinion the emphasis of anything, regardless of what it actually is, should always lie upon quality over quantity. i won't publish a blogpost if i don't believe in the quality of the content i created.

my immortal idol of elegance and female courage is and always will be coco chanel - her life, her decisions, her style.

my own style has changed more than one time during the course of my life. but i believe that fashion isn't something static, something steady or capturable. fashion and style are something always in progress - just like the human soul, nature and life itself. but what is the most important is that fashion is art you can wear. it is a way to express your own personality. i'm in love with fashion and i regard it as an artform. i thus regard it with a great amount of respect and i will report about it in the same way - but in a breath i can also state that it is joy - pure joy. life also is. it's a journey. and it's beautiful. it is oh so full of beauty - one should always remember this and live with regard to this.

... and now i hope you're enjoying your own journey through strangeness and charms.

sending you lots of love!
