This is my playground for all fun style related stuff: finds, inspiration, personal style. Somehow I felt that it does not fit to my knitting blog. You are most welcome to share and discuss!
I’m grown up woman (
36, soon 38) but my life situation does not demand formal clothing. I guess that I’m relatively open minded towards fashion — it’s really hard for me to say that I would never use a certain item, because tomorrow I might see the possibilities. I can’t really describe my style too well. I’m quite introverted person and I spend quite a lot time alone. So my dressing does not have permanent characteristics of any certain style group — I don’t really belong — but of course I do borrow ideas. So perhaps my style is somewhat pretentious, self amusing, a bit adventurous, but having a tendency to go towards minimal rather than excess, comfortable, eclectic, slightly weird and costumey. It has a romantic side — not too soft, though. I’m not a classic dresser, and I really don’t know if I can speak about style at all. The influence of popular culture and digital art is evident in my way of putting stuff together, perhaps even more than I thought. It might be that the clothes are my approved-for-adults toys.
I think that it is good for you to know, that I had a major change in my life year and half ago — I went back to the school to study art. So this is by no means a shopping blog, my income is limited and I try to mix up my old wardrobe and occasionally throw in a new item, a cheap one, a steal from sales or a carefully planned purchase. But there is lot to explore in my wardrobe, and I want to challenge myself to use it all more creatively.
As you can see, my body is far, far from model perfection. The absolutely positive thing is my height, 168 cm is the industry standard for ready made clothes. But I’m heavy with busty & somewhat athletic, wide shouldered build and that is definitely a challenge. Exercise is a fixed thing in my life, I use it to cope with chronic condition, so the muscles are here to stay; and my fat layer seems to be pretty persistent, too. I try to focus to the best parts of my body, meaning shapely legs, nice collarbone area, round shoulders. I made a relatively mature decision to not to worry too much about my weight or size — as long as I fit somewhere to the normal sizing chart of regular clothes.
