When I got dressed today I was thinking, "I just want something that is EXACTLY me." I have a formula to getting dressed I have decided and I tend to use the formula over and over with different prints and items each time. So here is what I have noticed: Basic neutral like gray or black with three hits of the same color spread over the outfit in accessories. My Favorite colors together are Gray and warm Leather Rust colors, so there you go, blaaaaaaa, bam , bam , bam. I think that I can safely call this my signature style. I feel completely comfortable here, natural makeup, wavy hair, side swept bangs, and my triple punch of brown on gray.
I have noticed other people's signatures as well. Some people's are very distinct, and in fact, if I saw their clothes laid out on a bed I think I would be able to say "oh thats 'So and So' in the shower!" (ya, like I happened to walk into their hotel room or something by mistake. Sorry it's the only example of finding someone's things laid on a bed that I can think of) Take Ru. Kurarin of Equivalent Trade for example. She dresses differently everyday, but almost always in a black and white color palette, looser layers, culottes with tights or long socks, menswear style shoes or black boots, military jackets. . . I mean she always just looks like her. She has found a formula that she feels herself in and you can tell. AND the confidence of her style has even rubbed off on me a bit. While I was shopping at the thrift stores last week I found these black, loose fabric, overall pants (from the 90's I think) and HAD to get them, all the while thinking "this is sooooo R Kurarin." They are an item I would not have normally purchased since they are not old enough to sell on Esty, but I wanted them for myself and trusted my instincts, influenced by her. I will be doing a post on them soon.
I think I will begin highlighting other bloggers personal styles pretty often now. MY personal style has been so influenced by others that I can barely call it my own sometimes! I will try to post an outfit that was influenced by the person and give a summary of why. Sound good? Does to me.
