In my opinion, personal style is something as naturally individual to us as our own personalities. And like our personalities, there are moments in life when we are more susceptible (possibly vulnerable) to media influences.
When it comes to blogging about personal style, I must say that I am increasingly comfortable in wearing the same things over and over again.
Take these items for example. My old leather jacket, Doctor Martens lace-ups and even my slightly tatty See By Chloe bag. They are growing old with me and I still enjoy their company. Shunning them and dumping them “just because” for something more on-trend just doesn’t seem right.
Now and again I will get some “helpful” anonymous ornery comment reminding me that I have worn this or that on my blog before. And so to those people I would like to say this. There are no prizes for spotting these things. I like things that last and when I like something, I will use it again and again till it falls apart. Just as I blog about things that I genuinely like, I only wear things that I genuinely like. There is no pretension in that.
