Finding My Style

I think that finding one’s own style, whether it be in fashion or home decor, can be a very difficult thing. We are limited by the items that are available in stores, and also by the perceptions attached to specific styles. For example, just because I am drawn to modern interpretations of Victorian style, as well as classical music, doesn’t mean I am old fashioned or stodgy. And just because I can’t stand country styles that doesn’t mean that I don’t treasure a simple home life.

I often find myself bending, as it were, to fit what I find in stores. I wear clothes that aren’t quite me, buy gifts that aren’t really right, and (most especially) surround myself with scents that just seem a little wrong. Sometimes I wish I could get things that are just right for me. Clothes that flow and fit my shape, and the perfect blend of vanilla scent.

I want to be me, but I sometimes find it difficult to discover what “me” is when none of the items I buy seem right. Maybe I should stop shopping? 😉

    I think you hit the nail right on the head. It’s really hard to be yourself when you can only buy items that other people have decided are cool.

    It’s even harder to find things that you really like when you’re constrained by money, or the lack their of.

    We’ve lived in the same flat for five years and I still haven’t been able to really make it mine.

    Money is my constraint on purchasing clothes that are me – I know what I would love to be able to dress myself in, but cannot afford the full quality, so I “shop” until I find a relatively good deal of a cheaper, less expensive brand.

    Life makes it hard to be yourself at times – its just learning to live it that makes us who we really are…deep inside.
