Sometimes the weather is totally agreeable. This weekend was crappy and rainy - perfect for baking bread and making soup.
Today was cold and clear, perfect for wearing my new coat. I love it so much, but it's kind of boiling hot.
I heard an interview with Scott Schuman (The Sartorialist) on the radio the other day, and I'm still trying to decide if I agree or disagree with something he said. When asked who he thought had great style and why, he replied that it's often "young people" because they have yet to settle on their personal style and are therefore more adventurous and willing to try different stuff. He kind of said that once you've defined your own style, which there seems to be so much emphasis on these days, you almost get into a rut, with too many "always" and "never" rules. I kind of agree, but I think he's skipping over people who aren't necessarily young, and who do have there own defined style, which just happens to be adventurous and willing to try different stuff. I just felt like I didn't fit into his two categories. I'm not young and playing with my identity (goth one day, preppy the next), but I don't think I've got this specific, rigid look.
Any opinions? Does having a personal look mean limiting yourself to a narrow view of fashion? Did you leave your experimentations in your youth?
