On Personal Style

12.3.13


 

Dress - c/o eShatki  //  Top - H&M  //  Tights - Hansel from Basel  //  Boots - Feet First  //  Necklace - gift from Poland  //  Earrings & Sunnies - F21

Style.  It's an elusive thing, that sense of personal style.  I see other people who have it down pat in their personal aesthetic. Never deviating from it.  I can't seem to do the same thing. There are so many different styles and silhouettes that I want to wear day to day.  I swing from feminine frocks, like this lovely one sent to me by eShakti from their Spring collection, to rocker chic, to boho chic, to casual and contemporary.  It seems that my personal style is not one particular aesthetic but more of a reflection of self and mood on any given day. 

I like frills and poufy skirts one day, pleather and studs the next, and soft lace and loose fits on yet another.  I know people say you need to nail down a personal style.  But I ask why?   I like to think that I'm a multifaceted individual, so why can't I express those various sides of me depending on how I feel that day?  I see nothing wrong with playing with the freedom that fashion provides.

Course, I may be aggrandizing the fact that I have as yet to nail down one aesthetic and stick to it in the name of 'Personal Style'.

  2. There goes the baker with his tray like always.
    The same old bread and rolls to sell.
    Every morning just the same since the morning that we came, to this poor provincial town.

  5. Huge fan of eShakti. And I love the stripes on this dress. I am the same way with my style. One day, I'm in a pencil skirt and blazer, the next I'm in colored denim and leopard the next I'm in a pretty floral dress. I think it's great to have a style that evolves from day to day!

  10. I'm completely with you. I'm in the "wear what I want" camp. There are lots of things I want to try, so I try them. If it's the polar opposite of what I wore yesterday, so what? So I'm completely in your corner on this one :)

    And that dress? Fabulous!

  11. Totally with you on the personal style note. Feminine dress are probably my favorite but sometimes the day just calls for a tougher looker.
