Style: Me

There's a moment when you have a funny memory, one that's reminiscent of how you used to dress in your childhood or a mere 5 years ago? Of course, you'd find the humour in it now, because perhaps you don't mind donning a particular colour anymore ... you don't wear spikes or chains the way you used to, or maybe you're very happy that mixing patterns today is appreciated on an entirely different level than when you were growing up.
Fashion Tales Style  Description
Nevertheless, looking back on how I used to actually dress even just a few years prior, as far as the attitude of dress, not too much has changed. Certainly, I've acquired new tags, and have allowed embellishments to become one of my neighbouring companions, however I am still me! Still a fan of altering details embedded in the seams; still a progressive fashion pupil, yet would believe to have inspired some who've stumbled across my journey.

This is one of those outfits that I probably would have never worn in my childhood typically, given the fact that I used to dislike dresses. I loved skirts, tailored pants, jackets and boots. During those times I'd wear loud colours, uniformed attire, and sometimes art influenced concoctions of my own creations. With each year and decade variety became the norm. "Hhmm, you're an eclectic sort," I'd hear ... yes, it may have been true, but during that period it wasn't actually a compliment!

Though tamed on the outside at times, I am still fashionably wild at heart. I am refined, artistically inclined, and complexly seasoned.  I am modern and dated. There are days I am shaken, and some days moved and inspired by others. My fashion sense plays a melody of classical, and jazz, with a rock and soulful interlude. But, grace remains within my individual style.

I am still me, choosing to wear my ensembles at the risk of not blending in ... whether on-trend or off-trend my stride reflects the forecast of my wardrobe: A romantic unity of price-points, humbly held by one timeless piece.

When I wake up in the morning my style happily says one thing to me, "to be continued..." as I am always evolving with my fashion selections. And you know what, that's just me!

  1. That is so true!  It's amazing how our tastes evolve from when we were younger.  My style always reflects the fact that I can't be put into a box.  I'm a creative person and don't like to back myself into a corner so I'm never afraid to try something (and not afraid to not like it either!)

    Love that biker jacket!

    I think that we always retain a bit of our fashion sense from our younger days. It's somewhere inside of us, and every once in a while it will emerge. :) I think your outfit is adorable.

  12. I love how you describe your style!  I am going to have to sit down and think about that with me... maybe write it out... I think knowing who you are can only help in where you are going (even when speaking about fashion!)

  13. I couldn't not wear dresses as a kid. I went into my tomboy phase when I hit the pre-teen/teenage years. You look gorgeous - I'm seriously loving those tights with that pretty dress.

  16. My style has definitely tamed down -- I used to wear such bold looks & experimented with all styles, but I think after that I found my true style :)

  39. Oh friend I love this post and your outfit! I look back at my old looks and can see how my style has reflected my personal changes. There's definitely still the fashion fwd elements and lots of accessories but I see where I wouldn't wear certain things bc of what I thought about my self. I hope my style is still evolving, I know that I have way more confidence to try new things and less inhibitions about looking a certain way and I feel great!

  40. Thank you Jamillah, so glad that you enjoyed the post! I think it's natural as a (fashion lover) to have your personal style evolve. Fashion influences the world in so many ways.

    I'd also agree with you about trying new things, and confidence.  -xx
