Look at her... she matches!







You may or may not recall this quote from Sabrina, the Teenage Witch (I'd be seriously surprised if there was anyone around as keen on the series as I was... or am... nevermind) so I'll give you this explaination. Sabrina, the teenage witch, magically switches her archnemesis' --the evil cheerleader type with two sidekicks following her around -- socks so that they don't match. Libby, the archnemesis, instead of panicking, orders her sidekicks to switch socks so that they won't match either, explaining sinisterly that she needs a trend and she needs it now. Later, she points at some girl in the hallway and says with a smirk "Look at her... she matches!"

So yeah, I'm the sad matching girl. But teen series aside, being all matchy-matchy is a very retro thing. And as much as I love to look at retro styled ladies, I don't feel well clad in vintage from head to toe. I like to use past fashions as an inspiration. I'm pretty sure no one else knows what I have in my mind when I go for this all matching outfit but to me, it's a clear hint at 50s fashion. The meaning I ascribe to my look makes me feel very put together and my outfit is like an armour. I like that in particular about developing my own style: those personal touches I choose to add, that make sense to me and maybe only me, and they empower and make me a little invincible.

All I'm wearing is either old or a gift, except for the top which is from Book of Deer.

Jeśli jest coś, co szczególnie lubię w swoim stylu, to osobiste znaczenia, jakie nadaję swoim ubraniom poprzez to, jak rozwija się moja wiedza o modzie i jej historii. Na przykład ten dopasowany kolorystycznie zestaw to świadoma decyzja, by narzucić sobie coś ze stylu lat 50-tych. O ile nie przepadam za noszeniem się wyraźnie w stylu vintage, to takie drobne inspiracje i ukłony w stronę mody przeszłych dekad są u mnie na porządku dziennym. Te znaczenia, które sobie dopisuję, sprawiają, że moje ubrania są jak tarcza, której nic nie może przebić.

Wszystko co mam na sobie jest albo dawno kupione, albo otrzymane w prezencie, poza bluzką z Book of Deer.

Zdjęcia zrobiłam sama.
