I'm always moving toward a signature style. I love the whole idea of signature style...a style, a way of dressing that is uniquely yours. Marlene Dietrich sported trousers. Coco Chanel had her boucle suits.
Jackie Onassis wore pearls with everything! They had SIGNATURES and it punctuated their looks.
As I move toward my signature style, I find that the wall I keep running into is that I really like so MANY very different looks! I mean POLAR opposite looks! Take a look a some recent shots that I've come across that I just adore but there seems to be not a THING in common one with another.

So how does one take inspiration and keep it from turning into emulation? How do we funnel everything that we really like and funnel it into a signature aesthetic? I've got some ideas for myself, my closet and you guys in the next post! I'm excited about creating my signature style and I'd LOVE to hear what your signature is.
Do you have even have one and is it even an issue for you?
OH! Don't forget Visible Monday over at Not Dead Yet Style! Make yourself visible!
