Melissa, blogger of Oracle Fox is anything but ordinary. Her soul is sure something to notice. Coming from Aussie, this blonde haired beauty has a style that tries to be copied, but is never duplicated. Everything nature is put into her daily outfits, along with spunk and edge. Her blog is just the same. Posting pictures of not only herself, but inspiration for her
lifestyle makes me want to reconnect with mine and do some soul searching.
So, the real question is…What is my style? Does it descend back to how I was raised? Coming from an Italian family, does that mean I must wear Armani or Gucci?
Or does my style come from Annapolis, Maryland where my family resides now…boat shoes and all?
Style is a funny thing. One outfit can be loved by one and hated by another, but what exactly makes it fashion forward or trendy? My beloved vampire inspired RVCA shirt is a prized possession, but Donatella Versace would kick it to the curb in an instant.
I think style comes from your present life. Your visuals, passions, thoughts, friends, curiousity to try new things…everything that you feel defines yourself all mixed into one pot. Your daily outfit comes out of what your mood is and what you will be adventuring that day.
John Fairchild once said “‘Style’ is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma. Fashion is something that comes after style.”
and to compliment Fairchild’s thoughts, Gore Vidal proceedes with “Style is knowing who you are, and what you want to say, and not giving a damn.”
