I've read more than enough articles, posts, whatever and I'm still yet to come up with the word. The one defining my personal style. Simple & Conservative keeps popping up but sounds too cliché so nayyy.
I'm naturally not fashion oriented . Yes , I said it. It's not a problem, never has been ; to me anyway. When I hear about how some babes spend virtually all they have just so they update their wardrobe and how they can't control it ehn, I get really thankful for how simple that part of my life is but sometimes I just want to go out of my comfort zone and take risks. Fashion risks. Imagine writing on Fashion risks worth taking and you're just there in shell, scared of venturing out.
Right from my childhood, if I know this particular outfit or dress style would attract attention to me, I'd never go for it. Like never. Even for hairstyles and that's why braids would forever be bae. Don't let me even get started on makeup. I really do admire it and all but when it comes to learning and applying it, I freak out. Wait, it's not laziness or is it? I'm yet to snap out of that conservative way of dressing but with the way I voraciously read fashion blogs ehn, I know change is on it's way. Patience is all that's needed.
Now, speaking of outfit inspiration, it just got better! Have you heard of Needle+ and have you ever gone through the hurt and heartbreak that comes with giving your tailor a beautiful material with the words ' Just sew anything' because well.. You've run out of ideas and she sews something really awkward and then you have to pay, probably wear it once or never?
Well, I have and I know I'm not alone. More times than I care to remember. I think the constant disappointment has to do with why I hardly wear native.
I can remember that I sometimes tried Google to get styles and all to help her ministry small but all the images were either all over the place or of very low quality making the search mundane.
The people at NEEDLEPLUS probably saw the struggle at my end(or so I choose to think) and came up with this really amazing site where you can get style inspirations for your next outfit without wasting your time.
You get to browse through really cool styles all on a spot, find one that suits you and save yourself and your tailor the headache of sewing something annoying.
And have I managed to make you think it's all about traditional attires? Forgive me, there are no limits. You also get to save styles you love to your wish list for later viewing. There's also an avenue for you to submit pictures portraying your style and outfits you want to share.
Enough of the long gist, peep the whole juicy gist and information HERE.
That's my life story people. What about you? How long did it take you to have a defined style or were you a lucky early bloomer? I really want to know, pretty please?
Love, Love, Love. xxx
