Who has Style?

Obviously a woman used to wearing weird

Fashion is what you buy; style is what you do with it. This is a phrase I saw the other day while cruising the internet. It rang true because we all buy clothing, which is really fashion but when it comes right down to it, how we wear the clothing dictates how stylish we truly become. You can have top of the line fashion clothing, but if you don’t know how to wear it, it won’t be stylish.


She needs a little more practice in those heels
I came to this conclusion while shopping for a dress to wear to my daughter’s wedding. I went all out at one point and said “damn the cost, I need to find a dress.” This mantra doesn’t always work by the way. I tried on some very high fashion looks and frankly, they weren’t me so the style portion fell flat on its face. Everyone has a style whether they want to believe it and how well that inner self is projected outward makes all the difference.

This is pretty much me on any given day
I’m a jeans and blazer kind of gal so if I stray too far off this model I feel as if I don’t look like myself. There are people who wear color super well and this is their style. If you saw them wear lots of black or something neutral they might not look normal and frankly when we wear something that doesn’t fit our personality we feel uncomfortable and out of place. This discomfort usually shows and this is why someone looks out of sorts or not their usually perky self.


This would probably not be me on any given day
In order to truly project style you have to stay true to yourself. Think about what you most feel comfortable wearing. Think about what accessories say something about your personality. Do you love color or do you want to blend in with your surroundings? Do you love an expensive designer handbag or maybe you’re a jewelry collector. Whatever it is it should say something about you because fashion is just clothes, what you do with it becomes your personal style.
While I love the upper half, I would go for jeans
