14.5.11

I've been horrible at updating this lately. The fact is, I haven't felt that inspired to up the ante on my wardrobe as of late because I'm trying to figure out where my style is going. I will always dress with whatever twist it is that I have, but when it comes to how I i'd like to ideally dress and what i actually end up buying/wearing, the two don't match up how i'd like and being broke isn't really an excuse. Black & grey, leather, vintage tees, zippers & studs, fur, feathers, southwestern, sheer, witchy and rock n' roll will always be constants in my style preference, but all of those are suddenly booming trends (well, Rock n' roll is always in) and it makes me feel frustrated trying to separate myself from the masses. Not that I think I'm the most original dresser ever, but as many devotees of fashion know, it's ultimately irritating when people make fun of certain aspects to your style then end up wearing it years later when Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters exploit it to all hell. I've accepted that my look will always be eclectic, I connect with too many interests to commit myself to just one aesthetic, but i'm in desperate need of refining. Less colors, jeans and pants (still a lot, but not every single day), single layers, prints, vintage (i know, but it's easy to collect a lot of mediocre pieces and just feel obligated to wear them), cotton (*gasp* but it can be a snooze) and more accessories, leg baring, fierce shoes and unique shapes. I often go for what's more comfortable or easy to put together, when a little effort and pain would make a world of difference...it's not that i'm afraid of other's reactions, it's that i'm sort of lazy, which is not the word i'd like to describe my style at all. I find myself rambling in run on sentences, but it's been hard to put my finger on what's been bothering me so much and putting a damper on my motivation relating to how I dress.

Just a little black on black action while playing with the light in my room, or lack there of.

Also, I forgot to renew my domain name so the url hasn't been working properly. I plan to step my game up a notch, in all areas of my life, but forgive my lack of posting, as my closet makes me want to pull my hair out at the moment.
