On personal style
There is some talking lately about style, its definition, and finally how to know when you have it. It's complex and there must be a doctorate analysis by someone out there or more. But for me a woman with own style is somebody who can wear anything that comes along in a way that her
personality is expressed. One can be nicely dressed or expensively dressed but with no personal style whatsoever. Really stylish women find litte subtle or not ways to create not just wear an outfit. Like artists they put the necessary strokes in the outfit to stand out. They leave you inspired and wanting to see more outfits. That's why real style is consistent.
How do I fit in this? Well, I can wear anything I come along in thrift stores or shops , clothes that are difficult to style. I treat my outfits with creativity, like a small cnvas on where I paint and I'm consistent with my approach.
My canvas today was this 90s thrifted dress. I have noticed that few people wear them and there is an abundance of them in thrift stores. I added my red linen thrifted jacket . I bought it 3 years ago, a hot bright summer morning for just 1euro because I had owned no jackets until then and I wanted to experiment. I have worn it many times since.
I then added my favorite belt to define my waist and I was ready to choose from my growing accessories collection. The skirt made me think of tex mex and cowgirls so I added accordingly.
And then came the boots and the little colorful bag I crocheted. That's how I created my outfit today and what I told you is how I perceive style. In my head I tick all my boxes so I have style. Simple.
PS > Cuffs are 2 more of the jewellery I bought yesterday and are 50cents each. Good things come to those who wait!
