Ya know those people who were born with style? Who can just take a closet of random pieces of clothing and make it an “ensemble?” We’ve known them throughout high school, seen them blossom in college, and oftentimes work with one. I’m not one of those people.
I don’t know what to chalk it up to. I mean, it can’t be my fault I stink at styling myself.
We were never really the kind of people who had money falling out of their pockets. I remember buying stuff for one of my Halloween costumes at the Goodwill one year (I was a rock star, and I actually looked like one. Thanks, Goodwill!). So we didn’t have a lot of extra cash to spend on stylish duds. I usually just wore whatever was clean. In middle school, it became important to wear hip clothes, and my poor mom struggled with me begging for $80 pants (ridiculous even by today’s standards). But even then I was a jeans and t-shirt kinda gal.
I still am.
I can’t recall my closet and the things that are in it (except for my favorite jeans and a drawer of t-shirts).
How do normal people do this? I want to look nice, but it seems like I’m stuck in a slacks and v-necks with sweaters rut. Help!
