HOW I FOUND MY STYLE

Posted on January 27th, 2014

What's your style? Its kind of like asking, whats your personality? We all kind of know, but can become lost in the hype of dressing for occasions, dressing for other people and buying into what everyone else is telling you to buy.

We all have a our tipping point and I found mine when a couple of seasons ago it seemed like a rainbow literally threw up on the street style scene, it pushed me over the edge. I can't wear what these other girls are wearing and pull it off. I feel awkward, uncomfortable and simply, not me. On the other hand I have friends that suit colour, their personality glows and they look absolutely stunning.

Once I made the decision that colour wasn't for me it instantly gave me clarity. The first step was going through my current wardrobe and I donated or sold almost everything. Its like going on a diet, you first have to get rid of all the junk food to give yourself a fighting chance to stick to your new resolution. When I go shopping I cull at least 50% of a store. Its like I have permanent blinkers on. Picking up only black, white, grey and then my exceptions; khaki, denim and camel.

I would love to hear of your own style journeys, even if they aren't colour based like mine. We're all on a journey and its nice to share and talk to others about finding yourself through what you wear.
