Postmodernism. A society defined by lists of top 10s, of smart phones, and the internet. Everything is a conceptual construct including ourselves, and many bloggers define their style by the concept they choose, which can be for instance minimalism, maximalism, bohemian, rock chic, etc.  If you don’t stick to the concept you choose, you are breaking some sort of aesthetic rule and unwritten law.

While I love minimalism and it often plays an influential role in defining my style, I absolutely refuse to call myself a ‘minimalist’, as that involves a lot of things that would simply limit my creativity, personality,and my biggest medium of self expression, i.e. fashion,  simply because to define is to limit.

I like to often stay away from my comfort zone and usual outfits, to push my own boundaries. I believe more in the idea that “Clothes not only make the woman — they can make her several different women. There’s no one style. There’s a style for a mood. A tailored woman at work, a siren at night, a feminine, attractive creature at a luncheon, an efficient chairwoman of a PTA meeting.” – Kate Young

With clothes, you can create the life you want. You need to put on the costume that can get you the life you want. Today I am the woman with an old cape in the mood of casual fall elegance.

    Everything that you wrote rings so incredibly true. Well said babe! I agree that we shouldn’t fill forced to limit ourselves to one specific category. It’s all about changing things up if and when we feel like it. And I like how you’re not afraid to do so. With that said, this outfit is freaking fierce. The epitome of chic. You look all sorts of amazing!! <3<3
