These two pix (thanks to Edelweiss Patterns for pinning/sourcing) illustrate how I went off the tracks when I was starting to look for my personal style.

This look – floral, soft, wide skirt, ultra feminine…. this look captured my imagination. I identified the style as “50s” and ran with it.
That led me to looks like this one:
Note the *highly* structured form, the twee details, the stiff and perfect edges. I might love the flowers … but the rest of this is utterly NOT me!
When you’re looking at pictures and trying to identify what draws you to the things you love – ask yourself *why* you like the look you like, don’t just kneejerk. Contrariwise, ask yourself why you don’t really like things that you “should” like.
Hope this helps you!
