I don't really have my own sense of style. It's something that irritates me about myself, surely at 26 I should have my own sense of style! My sister has her own very distinctive sense of style ( so does my 10 year old niece!), as do most people I know, and I just kind of float about not quiet sure which way is up honestly. I will sometimes hit on a celebs fashion that I really like, but really how realistic is that for everyday? I don't know. My mother is not into fashion at all and I'm not really sure if that has effected my lack of style identity/interest.......maybe I'm just lazy? I mostly wear jeans (not skinny ones, or flared ones...just um normal ones?), a T-shirt (sometimes a mans T-shirt, cause they are longer/bigger and you can work in them) and a jumper or hoodie. That's it. I own a couple of pair of converse which I love, but mostly I just wear whatever slip-on shoe I've acquired that year until they wear out. Whenever I do make an effort I usually feel like it's a waste of time, why bother when the only interest it'll garner is of the 'why so dressed up' kind, I usually just end up feeling silly and judged. I also envy girls who can apply make up really well and do their hair many different ways-I can't do make up at all and I'm generally make up free and the only hair style I seem to be able to manage is a simple plait. More on hair later. This may lead you to think that the only clothes I have are jeans, T-shirts and hoodies.......not true.....I actually have a really lovely array of cute dresses and tops (example: http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/doll-in-all-dress, cute right?) that I very rarely if ever wear, not that I don't want to I just don't want to be over dressed or look silly and I'm not really sure how to judge. So jeans and Ts are a safe choice. I even wore jeans to an awards dinner once! And if you're wearing a cute outfit you're also going to want to have nice hair and makeup to match, which adds another obstacle to the getting ready debacle. As I'm not working or studying right now I'm not really being forced to make any style choices, but even if I were I'd likely end right back on jeans and Ts doorstep, which there's nothing wrong with-if thats where you want to be, I don't. One thing I love universally but rarely wear (sometimes, when I'm going to the city) are necklaces, I own quiet a few and I love them. I also love high heels and own a couple of pairs-I never wear them cause I can't walk in them! I do sometimes wear wedges in summer. I have a cycle of trying to dress up then deciding it makes 0 difference to anything and go straight back to where I started. I do the same with hair and makeup. I think in my crucial style developing years (which I'm thinking are from about 14 to about 19) I was isolated and essentially uninterested in clothes at all, as a matter of fact I think I mostly more my sisters hand me downs during that period with no complaints :) I've only just learned how to paint my own nails. Now onto hair. I'm beginning to think my hair stops people from approaching me. No I'm serious. Let me explain: I have long hair, like butt length long, and I'm seriously beginning to suspect people think I'm either really religious or slightly crazy. It also makes it hard to leave my hair down or do much with at all. So I'm seriously thinking of cutting it to between waist and mid-back length (think this length: http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/xIiUieAaUF3/2011+Teen+Choice+Awards+Arrivals+2/V3yQS5iucU5/Holland+Roden) which, whilst still being long, is more 'normal' hence approachable. It also means I might be able to leave it down more and maybe figure out some more styles I can do. I don't know, but it's only hair and it'll grow back! Anyway here are some stylish ladies I would love to emulate:
Phew! Sorry for all the pic spam! But now you know what I mean when I say I don't want to be just a jeans and T girl. I mean just sometimes I'd like something a little different :)) Maybe it's just a lack of self confidence? (if you're not a size 6 don't even bother! Type attitude) I don't know.
Also here is a blog with a girl with really cool style: http://janagodin.blogspot.com.au/
Some of which I love and some of which I don't, she seems really cool too!
Anyway that's it for now (sorry about the slightly disjointed layout),
