Introducing the Style File

I've been wanting to incorporate style and fashion into my blog somehow. I am pretty excited to share a new feature called "Style File" which will be divided into several parts. I will be developing my personal style, exploring fashion, and discussing current trends. I'm starting to learn that even though all of these topics are related, they are all completely different things!

I'm ashamed to admit that I haven't been taking care of my appearance. For the past couple of years I've been a "work-in-your-pajamas" kind of girl. The pajamas I wear aren't even cute pajamas! Times are changing and I'm tired of wearing the same tattered duds. It may seem like a milestone that I can still fit into the clothes that I wore in high school (actually they fit better on me now than they did back then) but there is a Catch 22... my clothes fit well but they also show that I'm stuck in a time capsule. Its time to change and I will document it on this little blog.

What I have in mind is to update my wardrobe with pieces that compliment my existing clothes, fall in love again with the nice things that I own, and wear clothes that define my personal style. I am guilty of fashion crimes such as thinking a costume can pass as an outfit. This is going to be a huge project! I haven't worked out all the details on how I am going to do all of this yet. However, I'm optimistic that the idea will grow and I do :)

Here's an outfit that I put together in the beginning of February.

Hat: Target
Scarf: A gift from my Aunt <3
Sweater: Target
Watch: Puma
Skirt: from About Glamour, an art gallery & boutique in Brooklyn
Leggings: a sock store in Tokyo
Boots: Totes

I love this outfit so much! I was very toasty and warm even with all the snow. I barely wear skirts anymore so this is kind of a big deal for me lol.

This is a great idea! I'm guilty of that same fashion crime too! I love costumes and cosplay...and not to mention wigs haha. Can't wait to see what you outfits you pull together with some of your current favorites. Seriously excited :)

This outfit is awesome. My favorite is the skirt, boots, and leg warmers. And you pulled all the colors together from head to toe so well!
