style, fashion, conscious closet,

People wear clothes because it's cold or because they have to which means the same thing around here, thank you very much English climate. Dressing up is a weird business - to truly embrace one's closet there are a lot of factors to consider - personality, current mood, season, current trends (or deliberately not), comfort. I know I feel better when I look my best or simply put nicely together - there is so much potential in me showing up like that but it takes time and commitment searching for style and upgrading unloved garments into lifetime allies. I have limited space for storage purposes, there's this little princess growing her collections alongside mine and to be honest I don't even yearn for more -- more storage, more shelving opportunities when everything is stacked less than neatly and rarely gets its wear. Conscious, focused on quality mindset is what I'm after. It's easy to dress a girl these days, trendy fabrics are accessible, cheap and desirable. What if I want them to last longer, survive endless visits to my tumble drier, grace the skin with natural qualities? Knowing that pulling out a piece from the jaw of my drawer will make me feel gorgeous without really overdoing it, yes this is it. I have a pretty exhaustive list of what those fabrics should do for me, you know a life changing task they're in for: pulling off the sort of look manipulated by the slightly androgenic pieces in classic colours promising comfort even if I don't put too much effort in. Playfully sexy is in the rotation too, I wouldn't want those shirts or distressed jeans get away with simplicity too comfortably. And a personal ingredient to coordinate it all - unusual accessory, unexpected colour or pattern, they often go so unnoticed. Like always, it's a task in progress, the way I feel about things and make them happen. Just more real this time, stay tuned. x
