A little bit about my style & intro to blog.


For this particular blog, I wanted to explain to you guys my style an opinions on things involving different types of fashion.

    I guess you could say I have an odd taste in fashion, but what you call odd, I call edgy & unique. As you may already know, there are many different types of fashions, some of which you may NOT already know of, such as, Kawaii, Lolita, Zef, grunge, goth (or otherwise known as "emo"), scene, pale, pastel goth, bubble goth, pastel grunge, e.t.c. I feel that what makes my style more unique than other people's is the fact that I'm into a little bit of everything. Unfortunately, there's  an obstacle in my way that doesn't allow me to be able to express my style in the ways I want to, where as a lot of other people can. But of course, there are other types of fashion I'm into, but wouldn't like to wear a lot, like Kawaii fashion. Kawaii fashion originated among the Japanese culture in the 1970's as part of a new style of writing. Later, cute handwriting became associated with acting childishly and using slang words. Because of this Kawaii trend, companies such as Sanrio, who came out with merchandise like Hello Kitty. (The sight I got my information on)
    Site I got Lolita information from.
   Another Type of fashion I'm into, but wouldn't like to wear a lot, is Lolita fashion. Lolita is a street fashion and a subculture in Japan known for its delicate doll-like look. It's inspired by the Rococo and Victorian eras. I personally think that the Lolita style is a really interesting type of fashion. The Japanese culture is so amazing to me, and makes me want to learn more about it. The make-up these girls do in order to have a doll-like impression is time consuming and most definitely not easy to master. There are a lot of intricate details in everything that goes into the clothing and make-up. Some of them even make their own Lolita and Kawaii clothes, as well as wear wigs and eye contacts all the time. Fashion is definitely a passion of mine. The main reason why I chose to do a huge majority of my blog on edgy fashion is because it's a way for me to be able to share my true style and everything that I am with my school as well as the world. I'm happy to report that over the summer I really got to start expressing my style, show people who I am, and figure myself out. I do know one person (I wont name names) that thinks that I'm copying their piercings and style, but I'm actually not, I'm just finally expressing myself in ways that people weren't expecting from me. Another thing that I want to talk about on this blog is society. What my opinion on touchy subjects are. Share my thoughts and beliefs with anybody who reads this, and I think you will be surprised by what you see from me. This blog is a good way for me to vent and finally feel like I have a voice, and I thank you for taking your time to read it.
