<3 forever and ever. I love femineity and hate when it I feel like a tomboy. However in contradiction I also hate nothing more, than looking like a Barbie or wearing stupid flower prints from head to toe, feeling like I'm advertising Hollister or something. By combining ruffles, which are the sweetest, girly things with leather jacket or boots, I not only make outfits suitable(well almost) for work/school or whatever. They create an edge to everything and give you that rebellious touch, without having to go trash a car first. My top favorite is a ruffled skirt in creme, Doc Martens, simple shirt and leather jacket, in combinationg with smokey eyes or a statment necklace. Yes, as always these styles can look over the top, but with the right personality and attitude you can pull anything of ;)
This is quite similar to the ruffles+leather thing. You shock people by wearing a sweet dress and then while their eyes travel down during the 'Manhatten check' they stop and stare at your boots. Thinking what on earth does she think she's wearing? Well, let me tell you she is wearing the personification of style. Nothing makes a dress seem more casual than ruining the sweet effect with boots. Your proving that you have no fear of being imperfect and don't look so dreadfully boring with those monotonous ballerinas and dress. My absolute favorite is hippe, wildleather boots with a flowery summer dress and XXL sunglasses. Hippie has surprisingly come back and I love it.
People have been slightly concerned about me, as if I have been hanging onto this style greatly, asking me if I was 'emo'. On the contrary I just love how I don't have to put effort into matching colors anymore. I simply pull on all black and then a hot pink shirt and it looks cool, it's still bold and it looks like I have spent more than 5minutes dressing this morning. Depending on your jop or school it's sometimes not the most suitable to wear, but when you can I promise you will stand out the most (in a good way!)
