I feel like I often fall in and out of inspiring moments, rather quickly. Perhaps that’s why I’ve never felt as though I have my own “aesthetic” when it comes to dressing myself. One day I’m Goth, Tuesday I’m only in 70’s vintage, next I’m a Billie Eilish super fan, and by Friday im south western gal again. In a world of labels (*cough* High school) I was constantly asked “What are you?” (I was a Scene Queen for the most part).
I could never commit to a clothing style as fast as I can commit to a boyfriend.
So is that a problem? Not really no, who cares what you wear, hell, that was my senior quote, “I’ll wear what I want.”- Britney Spears. But sometimes it feels hard to compete when your feed is a mish mosh of looks, and those who post a beige blazer over a white shirt have 10K follows and likes for being a “style grue.” I mean no tea and no shade to those who do minimalist looks, I’m not here to discredit anyone or suggest that I’m better than any. It is just hard to know what your followers want to see from you, when you do nearly everything.
This week I’ve been inspired by Music lately. I find it refreshing to find inspiration in different forms of art, rather than always looking at what others do. With music I’m absolutely someone that finds that one album, song, or artist that I binge listen to until I’m sick of it. Which sucks for everyone that hangs out with me on the regular, Sorry Chad. But anyway, clearly I’ve been listening to Billie Eilish’s new album since it recently dropped, and man, Billie if you ever want a stylist, let me know because we’d have some fun. That girl knows how to pull off a fucking look.
So I could say this look is inspired by Billie’s love for chokers, spikes, chains, Chunky sneakers and more typically “men’s” clothing. But with a different take with a more femme; figure hugging pant, more of my typical everyday necklace crew, and I kept everything relatively in neutral tones.
