Military Shirt-American Eagle
Levi's 501xx (Shrink-to-fit)- Vintage (eBay).
Remember that resolution I made over a month ago? I decided to "dress better", and I wanted to document and share the process. I used this past month to read a few books ("True Prep", "Take Ivy". and a few others), explore blogs, and watch some of the recent fashion week coverage. I overhauled my 'style' pinboard and started pinning looks that I liked.
All of this exploration led me to realize my anti-fashion stance regarding personal style. I don't like to look chic or streamlined. "Trendy" things make me feel dizzy and sad. I just feel like I've overindulged in a lot of "try hard" activity and I feel sort of embarrassed and confused by what I've taken in.
So, I'm cleansing my palette with simplicity. It's really the only answer. I'm taking an anti-fashion stance against my now overloaded senses. I'm going to curl up in simple and comfortable basics for awhile to cure this sensory overload.
However, I am still going to document it because I feel like the understated need a voice.
If you feel sort of "boring" or "simple", I'm gonna be your poster boy.
