This, like the defining beauty post, is a hard one for me to focus my thoughts. You guys have seen some of my outfits, so that’s a pretty good feel for how I approach dressing. But there are so many more ways to look at style than just your clothes. What you do and say are just as important as what you wear. So I thought I’d tackle this Blogger, May I prompt a little bit differently when describing my style.
Of course, clothes are first thing that people notice 99% of the time, but there are more ways to look a style. How do you act, carry yourself, speak, write, dare I go here…smell. Style is entirely subjective and matters so much more of what you do with it than what you look like.
I’m still trying to figure out what my style is. In real life, I try to be witty and I’m a lot sarcastic, quick to pick up on references
that I get and turn of phrases. There are times I think I could go into standup comedy, especially when I’m on a snarky rant about kids these days or the customers I work with. It’s just one one-liner after another with a sharp bite and a cheeky attitude.
In writing, I’m still trying to work on making that liveliness come through all the time. There are so many ways that tone can be misconstrued when writing and that’s what I’m worried about. But I should sit here and say, Listen, if you don’t get it, that’s okay; you do your thing and I’ll do mine and we’re both gonna be okay.
It was easier when I was just writing for myself, back in the days of Moda Vivendi. I loved those posts. They aren’t particularly blogger-y, but they’re me. I loved that quick bite that came through the screen. I probably employed that style a lot more because back then, I wasn’t well known. Well, I’m not now, but you know what I mean.
What I love about style is that it is constantly changing. We aren’t stuck with one way of being. It’s always moving and flowing from one iteration to another.
I’m so thrilled to have you come on the way with me during this, though; unlike Moda Vivendi, it’s more fun when I can communicate with people!
In a nutshell, style is more than just what you’re wearing. It’s like beauty – the whole package is your style. There are elements that are more pronounced, but they all work together to create your own unique style.
That said, I’m a jeans and tee shirt kinda gal.
What’s your style?
