It occurred to me the other day that I've lost myself in fashion.
Let me explain...
To lose oneself in fashion: while this is probably thought of as more of a blissful experience, I don't actually mean it that way. I mean this realization was a slap on the forehead. An epiphany really. I realize I have forgotten where I stand in all of this - my identity, my fashion. Statement. Lately, I've been finding it harder to be inspired. But I realize that's only because I've been inundating myself with style and fashion that I don't connect with. While I love it, I don't relate. Perhaps you have experienced this too?
Being a true lover of fashion, its easy to become distracted by all the bright patterns and sparkly sequins and amazing ensembles... I have to remind myself though that while all these wonderful things I observe in this fashionable world of ours is fine and lovely, I can't forget that I too have yet another unique lens to share. And especially as a blogger, shouldn't it be my goal to then inundate you with my interpretation of this thing called fashion?
So I have made my resolution early this year to stay true to my own style and fill this Tiny Closet of mine with only my own interpretations - not someone else's. So hopefully I'll never again have to say, "Ugh, I have nothing to wear...". Tall order, huh? Yeah, well resolutions are like that :)
So without further hesitation, I give you a handful of true, unfiltered Tiny Closet treasures. My inspiration:
If you were wondering, yes, you're right. These looks are all from AW 2010-11. AW 2012 fell flat for me this year. That didn't stop me of course from buying both the Vogue and Elle collections though. A girl's gotta have something to read! But then again - this is my point in staying true to thine self: Just because its 2012 doesn't mean you're gonna see me posing in a pastel Carven mini with bows on my heels.
Top 5 Reasons The Tiny Closet is Tiny:
5. I prefer dressing in only black, gray and white.
4. I don't wear jewelry. Theo makes me put on a necklace from time to time.
3. I prefer wearing no more than 2 articles of clothing. Ideally I would love to wear any of the
one-piece ensembles above.
2. I think more conceptually and abstractly when dressing.
And the #1 Reason:
1. I am a minimalist and can't stand having a lot of anything. This includes clothing (gasp!)
Sooo stay tuned for more truer Tiny Closet attire. And if you read this entire post,
I am impressed and touched :)
