Fashion, 2, 3, 4

I really love fashion. Or at least I love the concept. It's so mesmerizing to see how designers can put together elaborate outfits that are so unique, yet still seem to flow perfectly.

I'm not going to sit here and pretend like I am some sort of fashionista. I'm not going to act as if I know everything there is to know about fashion. It just simply fascinates me, and I want to learn more about the techniques and tricks.

I wish that I had a more unique sense of fashion. I also wish I were more creative. If you think about it, those two things could kind of go hand in hand, right? There's got to be some type of correlation. I've been struggling to find clothes that really define who I am (oh wow, how cheesy does that sound?) and are unique. As of now, I don't have a distinct style. I wear tons of different types of things. Whenever I go shopping, I try to find pieces that are unique, but it's a lot more difficult than it sounds. I don't know how hipsters do it.

How can they find clothing that suits their personality so perfectly, is so cute, and seems like one of a kind? It's frustrating for me when I spend five hours shopping, and come out with two things. There's two reasons for this. 1. I want to find the perfect clothes, and 2. I don't want to pay too much for the perfect clothes. I absolutely hate shelling out wads of cash for clothes, especially since a lot of the time they are just completely overpriced. I only make so much money. It's actually ridiculous how much some clothes cost. $67 for a T-shirt? No thanks. I have better things to do with that money.

So I'm still on the hunt for more clothing that is cute and affordable. And maybe even a bit vintage or eclectic. Eclectic. Isn't that a fun word?

Someday, when I'm in the mood, I'm going to go on a thrift store rampage. And I will find cool vintage clothing, and it will be amazing.
