My feeble attempts to look grunge

All Personal Style Thrift Finds
Hey guys, long post coming up, I’m very sorry!
But first, check out the new ins:

Cropped sweater- 4$

Oversize denim jacket- 2.66$

Plaid skirt- 2.65$

I think I’m entering a midlife style
crisis. I don’t even have a particular style, it’s just a
mix of stuff…Whenever someone asks me what my style is, I feel a
sudden urge to slap them in the face and run.
My
closet has become a stew of floral, and neon, plaid and leather, and
baggy and tight, girly, and androgyny and Oh My God, even those
Mango high heeled shoes I bought, because I had a tooth ache and walking
around in high heels seemed less painful than pulling out my tooth.
I’ve always been a fierce protector of diversity and I think labeling something immediately devalues it. To
put a label on someone is like sealing him in a convenient package, with a
paper sticker glued on, with words like : “Goth, Hippie, Boho, Casual” and
shoving it down society’s throat.
I
understand that we need categories and labels so we can make sense of
our world, so we can organize and control our reality, but I find it too
limiting and demanding.

This is why,
with a bit of resentment I must confess that I’ve decided to change my
style completely, and try to incorporate a more grunge sense to it. I
say, with a bit of resentment, because the mere word “grunge” makes me
twitch.  Because what the fuck is grunge exactly?
What
if I wear something that is not grunge, but by labeling it grunge, it
becomes just that. And what if I start defining my style as grunge and
people start talking bullshit like: “That’s not grunge, you’re’ so commercial!”. 

But I’ve made my decision and despite what others say, I’ll be pushing my style towards a more grunge feeling and I know it’s going to be a slow transition, and I’m gonna suck at it. But nevertheless, bare with me 😀

How do you guys define your style? Do you like it? Have you ever wished to change it?

  1. Whenever someone asks me what my style is, I feel a sudden urge to slap them in the face and run. – I'm still laughing :))) I feel the same way!
    I love your look and your hair <3

  2. I've always gotta kind of a grunge vibe from you. You even manage to make really feminine pieces do that. But hey, you don't need to try to fit in any categories, 'cause I think you've already got a style going on!! We are our own worst critics.

    In terms of style I have no idea what I'm doing with mine. Half the time I feel like a classy English teacher, half the time I feel like a fairy princess, and then sometimes I want studs and all black… I'm confusing (sobs)

    That skirt is seriously amazing, aughhh!! I'm obsessed with plaid skirts. Must be the English teacher style side of me hahaha

  3. На кой му е нужен единствен определен стил като много по-интересно и вълнуващо да се променяш всеки ден 🙂 А ти както и да се облечеш винаги изглеждаш страхотно 🙂

  4. I totally dig your style,dunno what to name it..Same here in my case…We just LOVE clothes(I guess) & experimenting or say mixing it all up gives us a high* nod in agreement please…praying*…You are doing GREAT!
    I would rock your outfit in a heartbeat.

  5. I'm glad you have an exciting goal ahead of you 😉 and to be honest I don't believe you will suck. you will definitely rock, believe me!
    when it comes to my style I don't define it at all. I wear absolutely everything and every style I like. versatility is my favourite style. and I think girls shouldn't worry about style at all because really, it's not important, it's not life, it's just a hobby or something easy like that 🙂

  6. love the plaid! and I think it's perfectly normal not to have a style, honestly if someone was to tell me to describe my style I wouldn't know what to say either, yet I gravitate towards similar things all the time when I shop, So I think someone's style can't be that easily defined in a few words? and you know what they shouldn't be if they have an interesting style!! 🙂

  7. "Whenever someone asks me what my style is, I feel a sudden urge to slap them in the face and run." – това ме разби!

    Много ми харесва как изглеждаш, особено полата. Относно гръндж стила (ако въобще има нещо такова, защото всъщност гръндж означава да не ти пука много как изглеждаш) – обувките ти са точното попълнение.

  8. This is grunge perfection, love your skirt and jacket! I feel the exact same way when someone asks me to define my style! Like if I call it one thing, it has to stay that one thing. Way too limiting. If you don't label it, it can be anything.
