Style me pretty.

2.20.2011
Okay, I must admit right off the bat that I've never had much fashion sense.  Honestly, there's not a fashionable bone in my body.  My wardrobe consists mainly of jeans, oversized cardigans, and neutral-colored flats.  (What can I say?  I like to be comfortable.)  Terrible am I at mixing and matching different items of clothing to create uniquely beautiful sets.  Before I "go out" on a Saturday night, it usually takes me half an hour to decide what I'm going to wear, simply because I'm trying so very hard to make my ensemble appear original and cute.  However, I almost always end up getting frustrated and settling for the same old thing: jeans, comfy top, flats.  I just need to accept the depressing fact that fashion will never be one of my talents.

But at least I can say that I know what I like.  And I pretty much gasped with girly excitement when I saw this Black Swan inspired color palette, put together by the ever-so-fashionable Elodie.
The combination of pale pink and subtle grey are right up my alley -- so lovely and delicate and exactly what my chosen "style" would be if I had one.  But for those of you who are more into darker colors, these other chic pieces (also inspired by Black Swan) may suit you.

Gorgeous, I say!  Which one do you like?

  1. While I like both sets, and probably prefer the first, if I were honest, neither is really my style. :(

    Pretty much all of these items are things I WISH I could wear, but I know I wouldn't be able to pull it off...

    Also, what does it mean to have 'fashion sense' anyway? I feel like, if you can dress yourself without colors clashing and without being inappropriate, then you have fashion sense, yeah?

    Also also, I think you dress adorably and it's perfectly suited to you - both physically and with your personality. :D

    ...I'm sorry I leave such long comments.

  3. I love the pink collection, it's so sweet! I know what you mean about fashion, but honestly it is so fleeting and so lacking in originality. As long as you are wearing what you like and feel comfortable in, then you have waaay more fasion sense than people who buy vogue every week :)
    *getting off soap-box now

  4. Em, I admit when we first met I think i may have given you a bit of a hard time about your style. But let's face it, back then we all had terrible style. I love what you wear now. You do have style and it's very classic and chic. Don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone and try on something new! You'd look great in any of the styles above.
