With the extra days off last Easter weekend I decided to finally take a stab at my over-flowing closet. Basically after living in two separate houses this was the result of everything coming together without much organization. My mom and I try to do this bi-yearly and it is a really refreshing experience. Normally we have about 5-10 people look through it before we give the rest to a woman’s shelter or Goodwill. I wish I saw this post at Shawn’s Serpentine Streets before my clean out because these are the rules that should be followed! Surprisingly I followed them as best I could and gave away some things that I was hanging on to for too long. Anyhow as I was cleaning I kept asking my self the same question – What in the WORLD is my style?
You know on all those websites like Lookbook.nu or Chictopia.com where they pose you the question: define your style. I am always, ALWAYS stumped. I have clothes from designers, thrift stores (especially value village), highstreet brands, vintage shops, my mothers closet etc. They seem to all blend together in my closet. I love polka dots, stripes, flower prints, preppy, edgy, feminine and so many more styles. I know that it is not necessary to define a persons style in one sentence but sometimes it would be a whole lot easier. Shopping wouldn’t be so frustrating (or expensive) and I could go about picking outfits with a bit more ease. Most days I rely on my mood and the weather.
But now I ask you readers, what do you think my style is? Is there any point trying to define it? How do you define your style?
