Pay attention to details, mix textures and treat your body like a masterpiece. I think about the politics of fashion a lot and I think you say so much more when you decorate your body then when you don’t. How you define decoration is up to you and its breathtaking to see the diversity of looks out there!
Pic 1:This look is just silly fun for me I would dress in costume every day if my life allowed it. Unfortunately I work in a place that my lolita tendencies aren’t always appreciated. Some days I can get away with a little fantasy in my everyday life.
Pic 2:This is an every day look for me. I stay mostly within 40s and 50s inspired looks because they’re so decadent to me. The majority of my clothes are thrifted but modern because its so hard to find true vintage in my size. I love that vintage inspired pieces are becoming more mainstream, it makes shopping so much easier!
Pic 3:This look for me was an attempt at looking more modern. Also red is a huge power color for me….it completely lifts my mood and gives me immediate confidence. I think its important to find whatever does that for you in regards to your fashion and exploit it. I wear red in almost every outfit for that very reason
Blogging has been a really interesting experience so far. Its given me a great opportunity to meet people I wouldn’t normally in my day to day life, but its also made me hyper aware of the things I say. I recently posted about something controversial and made some foes in the process, but its very cathartic to share my feelings and receive the impact of them in this way.
