....{wearing what i want}....

Growing up...and living in shall I say a
 thin obsessed culture
and not being said...
I am very skilled at dressing to my advantage....

What lines and silhouettes 
are the most flattering...

But sometimes....
I throw out all i know...
and just
  wear what i want

because many times i am more interested in
 how the clothes feel
and the movement they bring...
than 'looking my best'
and in that freedom from pursuing a 'pretty image'
comes a different energy...

a closer connection to creativity....
a release from the cultural stereotypes of only one type of beauty...
and even more...

a release from the pursuit of beauty...

the embracing of just what is...


as always dear friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your own life

  1. Wonderfully inspiring! Yes, when we let go of what "should" be we are free to find out who we are.

  4. Well said, Tamera!! I have learned what shapes are the most flattering to me but will often throw that out the window and put on my vintage 80's pegged leather pants because they make me feel happy and it's impossible to be invisible in them!

  5. When we're homeschooling all day and I don't have to go out...I have this very "granola-ish" skirt I love to wear. I look pretty horrible in it but it's my stay at home skirt. It makes me feel cozy and relaxed. I must say...I would NEVER wear it out of the house!!
