That certain sense of style




There's a certain sense of style that some girls are just born with. We can buy as many shoes, read as many fashion magazines and copy the latest trends as much as we like, but that innate sense of style is only gifted to a certain few. I'm talking about those girls who can leave the house without a scrap of makeup, their hair touseled this way and that, wearing a simple check shirt and jeans with one hem rolled up haphazordly and still turn heads.
Celebrity wise, Clemence Posey and Lea Seydoux, and Stevie of Discotheque Confusion fame spring to mind. These are girls who don't need an hour to get ready. A change from day to night usually requires a smear of red lipstick and a pair of lace-up heeled boots pulled on their feet as they leave the house. Nothing that they wear looks too 'put together' and thought about. There's nothing flashy, nothing sparkly, nothing that craves your attention. But that plain cotton shirt, those woolly black tights, the vintage jumpers, the simple skirts, everyday blue jeans, the hair bands casually pulled over the wrists in the place of bracelets .... take another glance at this girl and she'll be the one in the room that you most want to be like.

  4. oh my god. I completely know what you mean. I think everyone does, unless you're one of those girls :P
    I like to look good, but I probably do take an hour to get ready in the morning - there is a girl at my work who sometimes turns up in ripped tights and combat boots (it's a fancy department store), but she looks so fantastic with her amazing tousled hair and sparkling eyes, no one would even consider telling her to amend her dress code! It's a shame not everyone can be so lucky, but I think it's a lot to do with self confidence!
