BREAKTHROUGH

Been dying to join Bloglovin's Breakthrough Fashion Blogger of the Year contest since forever and I'm sooo excited when I found out that my age is (finally) legal and eligible to join. Therefore, here's an interpretation of my personal style.

top: STUSSY, pants: VINTAGE, coat: H&M, sneakers: ADIDAS




Now, on the topic of personal style..."What is your personal style?" is a pretty complicated question to answer, really. Reasons are mainly because:

a) I'm still in my confused-teenager-don't-know-what-to-do-with-my-life phase. Meaning, I could change my decision like 1-5 times.

b) Sometimes, it goes like this "Oh dang, she/he looks so good in a disco flare pants, Vetements sweater, and a pair of Yeezy, YAS I want to wear this, YAS my kind of outfit." That being said, getting influenced by other people's style is easy as hell. 

c) My budget is equivalent to the cost of McDonalds' Double Hamburger. #brokegirlsclub 

So yeah, these are pretty much the complications. But don't worry, I made this post not for a heart-to-heart session, no no. I did a quick brainstorming of course (or should I say, quickstorming? ;) HAHA ignore this pls) and wrote down some essential points to find out what best describe my personal style: 

1. Tbh I love girly stuffs such as pink colour, pastels, pretty dresses, etc, but I can never wear them...

2. Therefore, I'm kinda boyish when it comes to dressing up, but still have a small essence of feminine here and there.

3. Oversized clothes = LIFE.

4. I would choose a pair of leather boots over heels/anything in a heartbeat.


Well, here goes my personal style, and I think these points will make you understand my outfit choice for this contest. My style is basically a mixture of edgy, sporty, streetstyle, boho, hipster, and many other things I adore. But this I know, I do not dress pretty. 

Back in highschool, one of my best friends told me something that has been helping my insecurities a lot. We were so innocent back then but these simple words have been such a meaningful life lesson that I bring everyday. "You know, it's okay if you're not pretty. Bc you're cool, and it's even better so there's no need to be pretty." I guess this will conclude my personal style..

How about yours? :)






Love,

M.x

  2. Melisa, I really hope you win! I love your boyish, edgy style; it reminds me of youth and freedom (not that I am old, lol). I am not a fan of pretty, girly styles either, to be honest. I feel so much more comfortable wearing boyfriend jeans and sneakers rather than a tulle skirt and heels, lol. Anyway, thank you so much for sharing and good luck in the contest!:)

  6. I love love your personal style (maybe because it's similar to mine hahaha), and yes oversized is life!!! It sounds like you have amazing friends; because that is boss advice. So many popular fashion bloggers we see are tall, skinny, and naturally gorgeous; sometimes I stop and wonder wtf I'm doing because I know I can never look like them. But for reals, I think being cool is so much better >:D
