Now back to the STYLE DIRECTION >>
I remember a friend I had in middle school, a fashionable girl whose parents could afford to keep her outfitted in new clothes and plenty of them. This girls would come to school one day wearing her hair crimped, a preppy polo shirt and khakis and the next day she would be wearing too much eye liner and an outfit to make Avril Lavigne jealous. There is also a boy in this story, a boy who called this girl out for her ever changing styles, saying that she was a 'poser,' exclaiming that this beautiful chameleon had no right to change her colors depending on the day. I don't remember having an outspoken or averse reaction right there, on the spot, while this was going down but I know that this happening has stayed with me because I think it is BS. I think a person can put on different looking clothes every day and should be treated with the same amount of respect by those viewing the outfits. Yes I agree with Stacy and Clinton of What Not to Wear, the clothing a person (from a first world country) puts on does in a lot of circumstances let the world know how much you respect yourself but how much a person respects themselves should never tell you how much to respect them. People are precious cargo, be respectful, be loving, no matter what their style.
That all said, I think that stylizing my closet will make things easier, it will add more ways for me to wear different pieces, it will hopefully gives me a recognizable look. I tend toward chameleon and am often not recognized right away because of my ever changing styling. But for twenty five I think I am ready to commit to style, commit to a direction and really embrace it.
What it's looking like so far..
Green hair, don't care. Classic structured pieces mixed with ripped jeans. Cat eyes and lots of neutrals. Golightly glasses and grungy beanie hats. I'll even throw in a pair of flats once in moon river.
I will be using #GlightlyGlamGrunge on my IG to showcase the evolution of my style direction, so if you aren't already following me on Instagram >> @KatiaPriceless
