In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Style Icon.”
Oh well not quite. I don’t have a style. I don’t follow fashion either. I wear what I feel comfortable in and that the colors match. Buying clothes has never been my favorite thing. Actually I hate shopping. “Can I help you?” is the worse thing I know. If I want help I ask for it. I don’t want the sales clerk to stand in my face. When I was younger I felt really uncomfortable if they came and asked if I wanted help. Now it’s easier. I haven’t bought clothes in a few years from a store. My mother and I had the same shoe size and clothes size. So when she died I inherited her clothes that I can wear.
I don’t buy clothes online either. A few T-shirts (Game of thrones) but that’s about it. I rather try the clothes before I buy them. If I buy any in the first place.
If I should have a style it would be sporty. I don’t wear skirts or tight clothes. I’m more of a jeans and T-shirt kind of person. Once a tomboy, always a tomboy. I’ve never been into girly stuff and I’ve never worn high heels. They’re too ugly for my taste. Besides walking in cosy sneakers is more comfortable. Especially when cycling and walking of course.
The idiom, clothes makes the man (women in my case) doesn’t apply to me. I don’t dress to impress. I dress the way I want, not what others are expecting me. I never go to special occasions or parties anyway. Even if I was invited I wouldn’t go. You’ll never see me in a dress and that’s a fact. That’s just not my style.
