stay snazzy



 *sweater c.o. my mum cause she paid for the paint*



 hey y'alllll

STOP
so, for me, this is a very "normal" outfit.
simple. muted colors. no glitter.
no jump shots
It's like that for a reason: I want you to fooocus on this post, and remember it, not my outfit.

carry on.

I was asked an interesting question on tumblr yesterday
and because it was so interesting,
I wanted to write a post about it
 

"what makes you different from other fashion bloggers"

I had to think about it for a bit.  
I mean, there's obvious stuff like
my hair

my shoes

my utterly clever and charming wit

but when it comes down to it, you can see the difference in my answer to a different question

"what's your number one piece of fashion advice?"

here it is

you ready?
Wear whatever you want, and own it.

bam

life changing

You don't need the perfect bag, or a closet full of basics

you don't need to dress just like me, or take this blog as gospel truth

(even if it is)


you need to be happy with what you wear

and sure, someone's going to judge you for it
but here's the best part: you don't have to care 


It's your outfit.
Yours.

It's supposed to make you happy.

Can you imagine
if someone had told Valentino that making dresses was stupid
when he was a teenager
and he had believed them

Or if Betsey Johnson never made a tutu,
because she was worried what the popular girl at school thought

IGNORE YOUR POPULAR GIRL
SHES WEARING UGGS FOR HEAVENS SAKE
DON'T TAKE THAT GIRL'S THOUGHTS TO HEART


wear what you want.
  #besnazzy.

except if your snazzy is UGGs.
don't do that to me.

ok?

that is the difference, I think

Justina

Tell me what I want to hear. Or what you want to say.

Just remember:

If you're mean, I'll track you down and replace all your shoes with those hideous white tennis things that are so popular among the very sad.
