style mantra

I remember the lovely Jessica of What I Wore posting about this a few weeks ago, but as a fashion blogger, it's easy to compare yourself a lot. I have to admit, there are mornings I wake up and get discouraged because I don't have a certain pair of shoes that so and so wears these days or my vintage dresses don't quite have the same feel as another blogger's. And of course, there's the ever perpetuating dilemma: why can't I own everything Chloe Sevigny wears?!

And then I remind myself: let it go.

Stay true to who YOU are.

Blouse: Nude colored silk blouse, Queen's Wardrobe
Skirt: White jean pencil skirt, American Apparel
Heels: Vintage leather heels, via Crossroads on Haight
Belt: Leopard print skinny belt, J. Crew

  1. it's so hard to remember that whilst clicking around on fashion blog after fashion blog! it is very important to be yourself, no one can be you, no one walks in your shoes.
