Day 56 Question 56:
What is your style like?
I was flipping through old picture albums and looking at pictures online from years past and started to think about what kind of “girl” I am. What is my style? I guess I am a gal that likes to push the envelope…not in an extreme sense but I am always changing my styles.
I live for aviator sunglasses because I think they give any look that bit of an edge. My hair has been about 500 different colors, lengths and styles and I love it. I do not fear change at all when it comes to my hair. A lot of girls get terrified of even cutting 2 inches off of their hair but I am the type that decides to cut 7 inches off my long locks and streak it bright pink. I am not punk. I am not Emo. I am not hippie. I really have no idea how to classify myself. I just like what I like.
I admit to being drawn to more of a “hippie” style. I love long flowing dresses that look handmade and accessories (purses, bracelets, necklaces) that have more of an earthy vibe to them. In the same though I love the very vintage, pin-up look. I own about 10 pairs of high heels and never wear them…I love the way they look but hate the way they feel so if I wear them I rock them for about 10 minutes then it is all about switching to flats. That works for me though because I am 5’8 to begin with so when I put on heels (especially 4” and higher) I am pretty much a giant and I don’t like that. I don’t want to tower over someone I am on a date with…I might as well carry him in my pocket if I am going to do that. :0)
My style is more or less designed around my mood which is always changing. I have a curvy body and do wear some things that are form fitting to show off my waist (which I love) but I have always felt the most comfortable in really pretty, flowy clothing. Clothing that suits being outside but still feels feminine and delicate.
I believe my personality (more or less) reflects a sense of ease with a touch (ok more than a touch) of silliness. I love the buy silly things that people can try on and wear to make the situation at hand way more fun. I work at a Thai restaurant and I am constantly bringing in silly glasses for people to wear. I (just yesterday) bought fake mustaches—because let’s face it there is nothing funnier than fake mustaches.
I have been feeling kind of nauseous today (I am hoping it is not a stomach bug going around—yuck) so I decided instead of writing a whole bunch to answer this question I would post a bunch of different pictures of myself to reflect my style and to allow my readers to get a better idea of who I am. Diane in all forms. :0) Hope you enjoy!
