First off, I just want to give out a big thank you to everyone who participated at our link up this month. I know it was kinda last minute, so I really appreciate those who posted and left comments. We’re doing it again next month, and I hope to see you all then!
Here’s a bootleg outfit picture from a post-Halloween party last week! It was a Tiki-themed party, but I was too lazy to think of a costume, so I just put on a floral dress plus a flower clip and went out the door. My scarves received some love in my previous entry. Well, here’s one of them in action! They’re so warm and fluffy and long. I love them so.
I like to joke about having a sham personal style because 1.) I don’t buy name brands and 2.) I wear basically the same outfits. I don’t hide the first point. A lot of my items are on the affordable side, and the lot of them are picked up from small market stalls in Asia (shoutout to Divisoria). I can’t look at my clothes’ tags for the brand because, well… there is no brand.
You don’t need to spend a lot on trendy things. There’s definitely a rise in quality when you pay more, it’s true, but save those for things that you’d be wearing everyday. Work shoes, a sturdy winter coat, basic pants and blouses, etc. These things need to last you a long time. For pieces that would be out of style in a few years, there’s no reason to splurge. That’s my philosophy.
Are brand names better? Sure. Are they a reflection of who you are and your worth as a person? Absolutely not.
That said, I wonder if I should keep posting my outfits, as fun as they are. Because approaching the aforementioned second point, I wear the same damn thing all the time. Long flowy top, tight jeans or leggings, and closed laced shoes. There. That’s my fashion blog. Thanks for reading!
I like to call it my personal uniform. It’s chill, it’s comfortable, it’s who I am. I like to think I’ve always had one. Once upon a time, I was a forreals fashion blogger. Even though I experimented with different looks, I always defaulted to a personal uniform. Back then, it was different.
I loved dresses so much. I still do! But man, jeans and boots are just so comfortable now. I honestly don’t like to make a fuss about my outfits anymore. My dresses were always a pain to wash, and I was never good in heels. I still like to look good, but comfort and effortlessness are priority now. Hence, the jeans and boots. I like my new uniform.
Tell me a little something about how you dress! I love talking about style, so feel free to share your favorite fashion blogs or plug your own if you have one! I’m not a stickler about shameless plugs (within reason, of course), so go right ahead.
