    In this chatty video, I answer one of my most asked questions: how do I find my style and the confidence to wear what I want? I break it down into steps, from assessing what clothes you already wear the most in your wardrobe, to finding aesthetic inspiration, building a moodboard, and tips for going shopping and styling outfits.

        I tend to get into a routine of wearing the same kind of thing for months, almost like a uniform - think the Simpsons :D
        I have recently lost a significant amount of weight and have found the confidence to start wearing the things I thought I couldn't before (when I absolutely could have). So now that just means I'm a 31 year old who dresses like a 20-25 year old hahaha. But I love the clothes that I wear and fell happy when I wear them, and at the end of the day, that's what matters.

              A person could only be confident with what she is wearing if no one would give a shitty comment on what she wear :<

                On contrary, a person could be comfortable on what she is wearing without taking anyone's shitty comments. I mean, who the hell they are to comment on what that one is wearing, girl, I'd wear what I want because this is what I'm comfortable with.

                                                            My style is based around dark colors only :) though one time when I bought these cute red and black striped fingerless gloves, I got called a try-hard by my mom. Not sure what that means... I just felt like wearing a cute emo outfit that day, it came naturally not trying hard! ;-;

                                                              Also, I feel like for so long I’ve never cared about what I wear, and I’ve made it clear that I don’t care too much, even one time my friend asked me if I did something with my hair and in reality, I just brushed it a little better than usual. Now I’m starting to get more into fashion, and I feel a little odd wearing clothes that were a bit fancier an more put together. It’s not a huge deal because I’m not one to be embarrassed, but I’m a little nervous about dressing the way I really super want to because it’s more put together than I used to so this video really did help thanks😂

Look for thrift stores, have clothes swap parties, use thrift apps and repair clothing instead of buying more and more when you still like it!

                                                                                        • i don't wanna be you anymore

                                                                                          bottomline: i lack confidence.
