It’s been almost-never since I posted something personal on this blog so I figured I’d take this opportunity to do so on the topic of style. Style is something that is so meticulously precise while at the same time being completely inhibited.
There’s a reason I’m mainly a beauty blog and not a fashion blog. Fashion scares me. Entirely. I believe that I have good taste and I also believe that you can buy taste. I don’t like having to put together outfits on a limited budget. My clothes are never really standout and I kind of just throw them together at the peril of my mother (and her magical and intense love for clothes) who is the queen bee of fashionistas. I feel like if I could buy all of the things that I really, really enjoy then I’d enjoy wearing them! But alas, we are all on budgets therefore I am where I am. I’ve said once before and I will say it again, I have no problem buying ten $4 lipsticks but I have a horrible time talking myself to put that $40 towards a skirt or pair of jeans.
I wish I could jump back in time and share with all of you my closets of my past. Each 6 months you would see an entirely different version of myself and looking back, it’s frightening. I went from being the t-shirt queen to trying to find this edginess in myself to ultimately giving up! I can look back at my styles throughout the years but I’d almost rather go look back at my makeup and hair disasters through the times. That’s what I enjoy more! But again, this is a personal style post. and personal style I will talk about!
My style currently is unknown, just as a lot is in my life. I’m in a very, very weird limbo period that I’ve never experienced before so I feel as if I have pressed the pause button on my life until the school year starts back up again in August. If I could pin a style, I would say that I dress closely to how I dressed my sophomore year of high school. I know. Horrible thought. But back then I didn’t really know what to do with my body so I just slapped on a tank top and a cardigan with some jeans and boots and called it a day. That’s kind of where I’m at nowadays. It’s just pure laziness. I shouldn’t even entice it by calling it a style.
We’ve grown up with it all around us; Gossip Girl, 90210 and Hollywood in general. Everybody has a set style. Preppy, beachy, hipster, high-end, thrift store junkies. Everybody seems to fit into a mold. I honestly have no idea where I really fit in yet. Not to make this some odd, woe-is-me post! This isn’t the end of the world! But it is weird because I really have no idea what I like and it’s weird to me that fashion doesn’t excite me.
I don’t think I’ve made too much sense in this post. At all. An anonymous reader posted on my tumblr asking for me to do a post on my personal style so I felt obligated to! It was a great idea and kind of made me realize that I’m not only in limbo in my life but also in my fashion sense! I’m going to set a goal for myself to find myself in my fashion in the coming year. I don’t need to go out and spend money, I just need to think about what I’m wearing more and develop a style sense.
I made a huge graphic showing my styles throughout the years so if you wanna look at it, just click it!
