So what does style mean to me? (Good question, me.) Style is communication. It projects to others certain characteristics about ourselves; gender, personality, occupation. Style is self-expression. It can be beautiful, trendy, classy, preppy, goth, grunge, minimal, vulgar, - whatever you want it to be. Style is ever-evolving and we are on a journey creating it. Style can be emulated; from fashion icons to fashion wanna-be's. Style is confidence. Confidence in yourself that you can pull it off. And last, style is freedom. It is the freedom to be whoever it is you want to be.
I'll leave you with a quote from American novelist, Gore Vidal, "Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn."
