I’m hoping that by creating this I can meet some more people who have a style in their personal lives. Surely there are many blogs on Tumblr run by girls who will reblog McQueen and Chanel picture incessantly, but I’m more interested in seeing how people on Tumblr actually dress.
So, please reblog this post so I can find more cool stylish people on Tumblr!

Description of your style: Dark, casual streetwear with elements of Shibuya glam mixed in. I’m in a transitional phase right now as I shift away from a lot of gaudier, shinier, print-adorned clothes. I am a big fan of black (so original), and leather, and drape.
I am hardcore into Japanese fashion — pretty much everything I wear comes from Japanese brands.
What you hate about fashion: The sexism. The impossible standards. The elitism. And lately, I find myself feeling more and more exhausted with over the top, theatrical runway presentations. I can appreciate fashion as art, but I’m personally more interested in clothes people can actually wear. When half of what you show on the runway doesn’t make it to production, your fashion show isn’t a fashion show, it’s a publicity stunt.
What you love about fashion: That we can create a shell that represents our inner selves. There is no ideology attached to the way I dress — I’m not trying to reflect any principles or beliefs — but I do think it is cool that we can take something as powerful to the senses as visual beauty and attach it directly to ourselves. That, and it’s just fun.
