That's Who I Am

One of my favorite things about fashion is that we basically get to play dress up everyday of our lives. We create our own image, we pick specific pieces and choose to do our hair and make-up the way we want to present ourselves with this idea that what we put on represents ourselves and our taste. I like to think that parts of my personality show through my style. I try to never stray from anything too modest. Now, I'm not going to obviously cover myself in long pants and long sleeves all the times but it's important to me to look well put together and not, well, half-naked. I've never been a wild teenager, that's just not who I am. I'm not the type of person to throw in curse words every sentence, or go crazy and get drunk or even make reckless decisions in general. There's nothing wrong with people who decide to do those things, but I just like the idea that part of me, and who I am as a person, shines through a small part of my style. Because, isn't that what personal style is all about? Expressing who we are before somebody gets the chance to really know us.
