6 Fashion Quirks

Something I nabbed from Liebmarlene, and thought would be fun to do. It's pretty much listing 6 fashion quirks I have. Although it doesn't sound much, I wonder if I even have 6. But I guess it doesn't hurt to try.

o1. ) I love layering. I love it when people layer their clothes well. It's actually something my grandmother frowns upon, since she always asks me, "Why do you do that to your clothes?" and to be honest, I don't know. There's something aesthetically pleasing to me about the ability to pile two different garments together to create a cohesive look. Although there's nothing wrong with a more simplified look, I am just generally more pleased with my outfit for the day if it required more thought and and coordination.

o2. ) When I'm in search for new clothes to buy (or shoes as well) I always tend to gravitate towards more ornate and decorated articles of clothing. I love patterns, I love detailing, I love unique silhouettes and cuts. Although this comes as a problem when I'm mixing and matching my wardrobe options.

o3. ) I don't really have a "style", per se. I range from quaint dresses to geek-chic, and so on. I don't really have a set idea of what kind of clothes I restrict myself to, so I just wear whatever I want!

o4. ) I'm an extremely cheap shopper. Because I'm a full-time student, I don't have a job and I'm one of those kids that just hates asking parents for money. So whenever I do scrape by with some spare money to spend, I shop cheap. Thrift stores are my best friends (especially on campus, where things range from .50 cents to $5) and whenever I go into a large retail store, I love Sale-shopping.

o5. ) When I decide on what to wear for the day and get dressed, I love putting music on. I feel like it really adds to what I feel like wearing that day, and it sets the mood for the rest of my day as well. If something fun and dancey is on, I tend to dress a little more eccentric, or if I'm listening to something soft and mellow I tend to go more mellowed in my clothing choices.

o6. ) I used to be an awful dresser when I was younger. I guess I just didn't know better, and I didn't really get to find my niche back then as well. Typical things I wore were just jeans and a large baggy sweatshirt, or I would be really involved with Hollister and American Eagle. (God forbid I go back! I regard those places as fashion death valley.) As I grew up, I think I learned to be more courageous with what I wore and that's how I currently came to be.

OMG I can really relate to 2, 3 & 4! 1 too but I don't layer cause it is suicide to want to layer when it is so hot in Singapore! & yes, I lvoe the details too! Hahaha & I don't really know what style of clothes I wear too! Sometimes I feel like being preppy chic & maybe even effortless! Hahah so I just do it like you, wear whatever I want ;) Anyway, we should experiment more when we are young ? :D experimenting is more fun than sticknig to one style!

& PS, I LOVE YOUR STYLE! <333 I always enjoy your outfits. You can pull off outfits that I don't think I can ever pull off! You're so awesome, so fun & have great hair ;)

I'm so glad people can relate to be on #4! I feel like so many people can afford more expensive clothing and being a cheap shopper can be so difficult!
