My latest style flip
As anyone who followed me a few months ago when I was regularly blogging will remember, my style was, as my blog name suggests, vaguely hipster. Over the course of the last few months I’ve undergone several changes in my life which have affected my style immensely.
The biggest determinant of my style is, of course, whatever stock we get in at work. Through the winter season we received a lot of cozy winter stock, so my style turned into a bit of a ski lodge-chic thing which, although not bad, isn’t what I want to be wearing 24/7/365. No, I need something significantly more exciting than that.
I encountered a man in October of last year. This changed my style in its own way. I started experimenting a little bit more to figure out what he likes on me. This turned out to be a futile endeavour because, as wonderful as he is, he is a geek and gamer and therefore doesn’t really, well, care. Which is okay. I shan’t complain. He will voice his opinion when he doesn’t like something, however, which I realized when I suggested that I purchase the new Olsen Neo City pink biker jacket (which I still might do), upon which suggestion I found out that he dislikes pink and thinks he needs to stage an intervention, since I used to hate it as well. I think I may get the jacket anyway. It makes me look sexy.
Over exam break/the latter half of winter I moved into my annual “screw everything” phase during which I forewent make-up, still bothered to do my hair because it’s honestly too short to get away with not doing it, and I opted for baggier tops and sweat pants/leggings whenever possible.
In the last week and a bit I’ve finally pulled myself out of that phase and managed to find myself a new style. I recently downloaded Adele’s “Skyfall” since I hadn’t heard it in earnest since I saw the movie several months ago, and it sparked my latest flip. I’ve gone Bond-girl. I don’t know… I like it.
For instance: today. I haven’t gotten the opportunity to take a picture of my outfit today, but let me try to describe it for you.
I’m wearing the Olsen Neo City black viscose dress: http://www.olsenfashion.com/ca/en_CA/shop/dresses/elegant-dress/13001017/80000/detail.jsp?origin=dresses&categoryPosition=7
I’ve paired it with slate tights, patent leather, knee-high boots, one of our old scarves (Copacabana [Summer 2012] white scarf with black and grey paint spatter effect), a very delicate crystal necklace from Banana Republic, my pearl ring, and my white Fossil watch.
I’ve done my signature spiked hair with the straightened front and a smokey eye with bronze and black and crisp liquid liner with a red-brown lip (Revlon lip tint in “Dawn”).
It looks pretty good. Even though I’ve dropped 28 lbs since I last blogged I’m still pretty squishy, so it doesn’t look at quintessentially sexy as a real Bond girl would, but I’m getting there.
I’m thinking about getting started blogging here again, so stay tuned for more.
I hope you all have a good Friday and a great weekend!
