I described this one as “nice and simple. I think this would look great as a casual Friday outfit in a young office or fashion job.” Which I find HILARIOUS. I think all the ruffles together are a bit much, but I love all of these pieces individually. I still think of that blue sequin jacket as ‘the one that got away.’ I can see my flair for the dramatic, and my looks are becoming a bit more streamlined, but still very unique I think.
Here is where I really see my current style beginning to blossom. I’ve begun introducing colour into my outfits, and scaling the drama back a little bit. I would still rock this outfit today, although knowing me, I would swap the purple accessories out for pink ones!
My caption for this was:
“This is how I want to dress every day of the rest of my life....every freaking day.
Amelie was always an odd girl. She could never decide what to play with...her Barbies or her monster high zombies and such. Her parents always worried about this. When she grew older, she became your classic Goth...tonnes of black and spikes and such. Then one day, when she was packing to move out of home, she discovered her old Barbie dolls and was reminded of her love for pink girlyness. She began working it into her wardrobe, creating her own unique brand of Gothic Barbie chic. All the boys wanted her, but she always preferred the company of her imagination, and told them she wasn't interested.”
I have to say I still love this look, I would feel like a total badass wearing this. I have heels that are similar, but I just don’t wear heels at the moment much. I don’t know whether its’ my extra weight, just heels in general or the ones I pick but I can’t last too long in heels at the moment. The only thing I would change would be swapping the heels out for some flats. Also, apparently this is when I decided my outfits needed stories.
Ah yet another reference to The Blogcademy. Those two days really changed a lot, and really helped me understand myself more. I learnt that it’s ok to be feminine, to enjoy flowers and pretty things, and I’ve really embraced it since then. You can see a pattern has emerged: most of my looks feature a high wasted skirt and a tank top. I’ve begun adding hearts and the blue and pink theme has emerged. I adore this look.
I created this set just yesterday and I am OBSESSED with it. It’s very similar to the looks I have been creating in the past year, and it makes me SO HAPPY. I’ve been struggling to find the sweet spot between glittery hearts and looking mature. I feel like I’ve hit the nail on the head. I have been wearing stripes for years now, and looking at these outfits, it’s clear I need more lace in my actual wardrobe. I already own the Too Faced Melted lipstick in Fuchsia and I am getting the Swarovski bracelet (the one that’s looped over itself there) for Christmas. These outfits give me a great idea of what pieces I want to add to my wardrobe now.
How has your fashion taste changed over the years?
