Isn’t this outfit like I stepped out from a film from the ’50s? I never thought this of myself, but I kinda dig the 50s style, there is something so romanticised sweet toughness in it which I’m gravitating towards pretty hard, even though I wouldn’t say myself a romantic, at all. But I dig perplexing oxymorons like sweet toughness or pretending or being Captain Chaos Cat (see what I did here? I love good alliterations too! ;)) more than anything, so here we are.
And you know what I just realised? It’s probably a really good thing fashion comes around all the time. I mean, how on earth would we know what we like and suitable – which by the way go hand in hand sometimes? Here am I for example, I’ve always been attracted to clothing, self-expression and creativity, and didn’t really questioned my style choices in my life. Sure, I wouldn’t wear every one of my outfits again, but everything happens for a reason, that is/was me too. I’ve learned a lot on my way and finally arrived to a point when I truly love what I wear and know what is and is not flattering, even though, I’m also very well aware of not being perfect in any way.
I love for example (Ultra) High Rise Jeans make me taller and especially my legs longer, though the hems are rolled up and I didn’t wear heels, how I had planned. And this high rise is deserved to be flashed by tying the shirt on my waist. I also opted for more open buttons than used to, firstly because it was hot and secondly because it helps me to cheat with my height as well. And then I don’t want to mention these sunnies or the bag or the sandals or the bandana, because we don’t have time for that, plus I did that so many times before, so just let me say how truly obsessed still I am with all of them. True story. 🙂
