Ambiguity: Fall Style

Ambiguity: Fall Style 

In a mostly digital world filled with Amazon Try-Ons, Target Shopping Hauls, Swipe-Up Links, & sharing every major & minor daily detail, I am tired. 

Tired in the sense of knowing everything & where to find everything to the point where originality & mystery seems to be oblique. On thoughts of keeping mystery alive, Sophia Loren once said,

Sex appeal is 50 percent what you've got — and 50 percent what people think you've got.


While mystery extends far beyond sex appeal, there's something about not sharing everything in a world where it seems perfectly normal {& maybe almost expected} to share everything.

Ambiguity Style: Not Just a Trend

Seasonal trends are one thing, but appearing like a leading influencer's clone from her most recent boutique collaboration has exceeded my interest--not-to-mention, the presence of a phone documenting every tiny detail of the day-to-day. 

Whether it's age or a sense of re-birth, rising from the pandemic's impactful ashes, I am not seeking links, try-on Reels, nor outfit posts for inspiration. Instead, I am seeking Ambiguity.

Perhaps, we got our first taste of ambiguity at this fall's Met Gala with Kim Kardashian's H to T black Balenciaga look. What is more ambiguous than that?

Unlike past fall style posts, I won't link to items to shop. I purposely styled pieces in my closet that are from seasons' past.  When it comes to style today, I am all about emulating style & icons that inspire me but don't feel the need to hunt for the exact piece or link.  Let's get back to real fashion, channeling what inspires us, not copying {the exact} things others are wearing. There is fun in the hunt for the unique. 

Creating a look based on a feeling, season, direction, or aspiration is what I find true style to be. Personal style, in general, is something that emulates a mood, time-stamps your moment in that time of your life, & reflects a thought, emotion, or idea that you want to share with well, the world.

That bit of mystery is much more impactful than any affiliate link.
