Why we do what we do...

   I am so interested in why and how people choose their style. Why do you like certain designers and not others? Why do we like trends? It is really an interesting subject if you dive deep into it. I realize some things are obvious...like your environment, friends and status. I know that a lot of people (me included) dress differently at work versus their private life. I get frustrated sometimes when I see someone who could have done SO MUCH more with their daily style but chose not to. I get this way because I know how clothes can give you a positive start to your day or put a nice strut in your walk. Others choose their style to stand out and be an individual where some choose to dress like their friends with the newest latest trends. Trends are cool, but it gets annoying when you see the same thing everywhere you go. Usually a trend is something that is pre-determined by designers and fashion houses. For instance, how every designer will use one particular color incorporated into that seasons collections or a military feel or well....anything. I have no problem with that although, I like to veer away from trends. When the things that I wear start becoming a trend...it is time to change :)

   What is YOUR style? Do you go for the casual "i don't care about fashion" look...uggs, oversized sweatpants and a t-shirt you had in college? Maybe, a conservative crisp button down, pencil skirt and a pointy toe kitten heel. Or, vintage everything? Rock and Roll? Goth? I see it all here in the city. As much as we like to rip on everyones style...it's still THEIR style and they made a conscience decision to pick it. I find it fascinating!










I would love to sit down with every person I take a photo of and ask them how and why they choose what they're going to wear that day. And on that note, I wish I could dress everyone. Not that what they are wearing is wrong, I just see a potential to be EXCELLENT rather than just OK. Again, personal style is just fascinating to me. 


I am starting a campaign to find people who will let me style them with their wardrobe and post about it. If you would be interested, please let me know. It could be really interesting and fun!

thx!
