There was a time when I was really into fashion. I loved shopping and clothes and accessories. In elementary school my fashion icon was Claudia of The Baby Sitters Club (the second girl on the book cover above), which led to wearing many hats and leggings. Claudia inspired many a pre teen girl. In junior high I was a complete loser. Early high school I was grunge, jnco jeans and the chain wallet. These days were great, I had no filter, I didn't care what people thought. We bought clothes at Salvation Army and I colored my hair pink with koolaid. Later highschool I was completely boring. Once I turned 18 and started going to the bars, I got really into skirts and boots. And now, all I want to wear is comfort. I wore skirts or dresses or shorts all summer, no pants for nearly 4 months. Lately it's been just shorts and a roller derby shirt or a white sun dress or a gray jersey dress. There's a blog I love, Annie Spandex. She has no qualms about what she wears, and that makes everything work for her. I used to have the guts to go out in really strange things, but now? All I want is to blend in. That's not me though! I was never like that. What changed?
What is your fashion style? Do you keep up with the trends or go for comfort?
