That Edgy Thing

IMG_6676_Fotor_Collage IMG_6632IMG_6681 IMG_6633 IMG_6650IMG_6678 IMG_6662Today I decided to go for that edgy thing that people go for nowadays. Some pull it off better than others. I think I may be part of that “other” group because being all rocker chic isn’t something I think I’m good at. I do feel tough when I throw on my blacked out combat boots though. That’s the beauty of having all sorts of different styles of shoes. They bring out something in me that’s different every single day. Every shoe in my closet serves a unique purpose, a different meaning. This outfit took me back to 2013 when all I wore were my black skinny jeans and combat boots. This outfit was a normal, almost daily thing for me back then. I have blog posts to prove it. 2015 is all about creams, light grey’s and blush tones. Dressing rocker chic sends a strong message to people that you’re not one to mess with on that particular day. It sends the message that, maybe, you’re in the mood to be a little melancholy. Edgy to me is being mysterious. Who’s that girl in the fur jacket and skinny jeans? Though it may seem that my goal for this outfit was to be very avant-garde, trust me, it wasn’t my first priority. It was just non-inspiring day, the weather wasn’t on my side (dark & gloomy), and my combat boots just happened to be staring me in the face saying “Take me for a walk.” So I did. That’s all that this outfit meant and I just happened to take pictures to capture it. But really, can’t a girl like me, feminine and petite, dress edgy once in awhile and not be questioned? Fashion has all sorts of different faces: Today’s face was edgy. Surprise.

Embrace your edgy side ladies, you don’t have to have it together all day every day. Let your hair down, smudge up your eyeliner, and rock those skinny jeans. The world wants to see you a little irritable and raw once in a while. Perfection is so overrated.

Basic & Minimal

IMG_4840 IMG_4842 IMG_4848 IMG_4851 IMG_4854 IMG_4868 IMG_4874Hair up. Skinny jeans on. I guess I can throw on some heels to give the illusion that I’m trying. Simple and minimal was the look I was striving for because some days I just cannot be bothered. Pulling the hair back and throwing on some basic sleek clothes can be so refreshing. No patterns or prints fogging up my brain. No difficulties with the curling iron. Just an all black outfit with a boyfriend blazer to keep me looking and feeling calm and collected. There was something about this outfit that took me back to Kim Kardashian circa 2010. Before she became a “West.” The days when all she wore were blazers and jeans with hair pinned back into a sleek bun. She had things to do and an empire to build. I bet she couldn’t be bothered with all the hoopla either. Look at her now, no more business attire. Now that she’s reached a level of fame that no one can top, she wears Givenchy to bed. Must be nice. In a way, I’m building my own little empire. Not the same extravagant level like Kim but still a dream nonetheless. I strive every single day to do something for my future. I take a step out of my comfort zone all the time. When I’m not working I’m educating my brain on all things fashion. I still have so much to learn. No, I will never be famous like Kim but someday I WILL go to bed with a full heart and with the feeling of success, just like her. I have a love/hate relationship with the Kardashian fam bam. I think we all do. No matter the drama, they are a family to look up to based on the simple fact that they built an empire so incredible out of nothing.
