Yeesh. I'm embarrassed to be doing this. But maybe someday, some fan of mine will want to know my fashion taste, and I can direct them to this post. I mean, I like clothes. I have some specific interests in fashion. I like to watch What Not to Wear, although that's more for the psychology of it.
More than anything, I'm a makeup girl. I'll readily admit that. Maybe I'll do a post on that sometime. Clothing, not quite as much. Hair I have no clue about whatsoever. Anyway, for those of you curious about my taste, here are the pieces I like to use in my wardrobe:
I really like plaid. I feel like it reflects me pretty well--some craziness, some color, but also comfortable, casual organization. Plaid shirts make me feel safe, which I can't really explain. Maybe it's because these shirts originated in male fashion, which makes me feel like I'm wearing my non-existent boyfriend's shirt, which is a safe sort of thought. Some plaid shirts are simple, others are really pretty, a effeminate version of the masculine style.
Most of my plaid shirts come in purple variants, because I'm a blue/purple/black girl. Bright colors make people look at me. I don't like that very much. But if you're a bright girl, kudos to you! So much kudos. Seriously.
Only under a long shirt or dress, you understand. Wearing them as pants is a faux pas, which I committed all the way up until sixth grade, when I transitioned into jeans. If you're a little kid, it's almost OK, but if you're an adult, we don't need to see your butt, thank you.
In the kind of an outfit I suggest, this is a nice, different take on the style, a bit of nice layering that I think works well. Also, it's really warm and comfy. I'd go with black. Black is nice and standard. But you can go unique if you'd like.
Geez, I love boots. Not those random furry brown messes, you understand; Uggs are not cool in my opinion. I like plain, simple black boots. They go with everything, and they're so freaking comfortable.
I also like Converse. I have a black pair, a blue pair, and a black pair with hearts, and I'd love to try more in different colors and patterns. But with the boots, I try to stay simple and relatively feminine. I'm not talking cowboy or pirate or combat. That's a bit much.
Sandals are nice too. I prefer summer clothes over winter any day, another fun fact about me. Short sleeves, shorts, and sandals!
Necklaces are my jewelry du jour. Some people find them uncomfortable, but they're really the only jewelry I like. I have tons and tons of necklaces. I have the right balance with my face and neck and body to be able to wear all kinds of sizes and heavinesses of necklaces, but, like with everything else, I generally prefer the simple. Silver is my color of choice, and I like heart lockets (although I never know what to put in those things) and other small charms. As I write this, I'm wearing a sword necklace. Nice and simple.
As Julia pointed out in the comments on the last post, I kind of have an addiction to ModCloth. I recommend you don't go to that site ever, because the dresses are so expensive and so beautiful. It's horrific.
Yeah, I'm a dress kind of girl. Not the real frilly or revealing stuff, but simple, pretty dresses. Like the one displayed on the left, which is from ModCloth, is plaid, has a color scheme reminiscent of Christmas, and is my major fashion covet piece right now (It costs over $100 and I can't find a red plaid dress with dark trim anywhere else. *cue pouty face*)
I guess that means I'm into more old-fashioned dresses, since that's the style ModCloth is after. Vintage style dresses. It kills me, guys. It kills me.
Thus concludes this fascinating look at my fashion. I know, so exciting. But simple and comfortable is the way to go, I think. Come back next week for a look at the benefits of challenges! And if you decide to check ModCloth out... you will seriously regret it.
