It’s no secret that I am an introvert and my alone time is glorious to me. Therefore, most of the words that I speak are very intentional. I don’t usually mince words or use words arbitrarily. It is important to me to use my words wisely. The clothes that I wear are also a very important tool for my self-expression. My fashion and style choices are not arbitrary. My choices from the way I wear my hair and the clothes I choose are statements in themselves.
When I walk into a room, people get a peek into my psyche just based on what I am wearing. So I ask you this question, when you walk into a room what does your style say about you? And is it relaying the message you want it too? Whether we want to admit it or not our clothes speak for us. There is no particular right or wrong, but there is a message. I have deemed my style sophisticated edge, I’m part lady and part gangsta lol! There is a ladylike toughness in everything that I wear. Because the message that I relay is that there is beauty in femininity but there is also beauty in strength.
My clothing is also a testament to my personality. I can be very quiet in new situations so I oftentimes lead with my style. The funny thing is that the way that people usually engage me is based on my hairstyle and/or something I’m wearing. A compliment or comment usually leads to conversation. In every scenario my intent is always to be myself and I am intentional about that in my style sense. I posted this on IG not too long ago, but I decided that the best gift that I could give myself was me. My intent is never attention alone, but it is that you see the real me. And so I can engage from that place.
One of the purposes of this blog is to ask you questions that make you have deeper thoughts with yourself. Yes, fashion and style are fun but it’s also how we represent ourselves to the world. It’s a piece of who we are. And it is important that we explore every one of the pieces. So I ask what does your style say about you? And if you want it to say something different then change it. I implore you to have this conversation with yourself so that you can shine girl. To celebrate yourself through style is a good thing!
P.S. Having style doesn’t have to break the bank, you can find a way to definitely be you within the price range in which you are comfortable. Style does not have a price.
