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’.
