Defining Style

     Often celebrated fashion figures have a unique, easily definable look. For example, take Rachel Zoe. At the sound of her name, I instantly picture oversized sunglasses, chunky jewelry, a black maxi dress, and outrageously high heels. Or the blogger Leandra Medine of the Man Repeller, whose title alone defines her wild and courageous fashion sense. Finally, "It Brit" Alexa Chung is well known for her edgy yet classic style. 
     I once believed that it was extremely important to have a distinct personal style like these fashionistas. I was often frustrated about not having my own clear-cut look. Lately however, I'm starting to realize that personal style doesn't have to be limited. It's not necessary to dress a specific way on a day-to-day basis. If you do, good for you! But if you don't, who really cares? Maybe one day my style will be more defined, but for now I'll continue to explore the possibilities. 

What does personal style mean to you?
