“G.L.A.M…” Those of you who were also raised on the sweet sounds of the early 2000’s can likely already hear the Fergie. While I can say, albeit with a little nostalgia, that my taste in music has advanced somewhat since then, I have more or less stayed true to a certain inclination I’ve always felt towards richly detailed and luxurious looking fashion. This, for me, has long been a fitting means of externalizing my passions both dark and dream-like, sensual and ethereal. While dabbling, like all angsty teens, in a lot of the trends and moods portrayed by my friends, I eventually learned that finding your way to “do you” on the outside is loads more convincing, compelling, and gratifying than chasing a look that doesn’t feel your own.

Finding out what’s “you”:
One phrase that often pains me to here is “I love it…” or “it’s beautiful… but I could never pull that off”.
You can pull off whatever the heck you DESIRE to pull off and that’s where it ends.
The best way to discover what works for you is to allow yourself to try things that attract you, even and especially, when you feel it’s something a little more eye catching than what you may be used to. It’s often through nudging ourselves outside of our usual that we are able to find our greatest loves. And hey, if the mini was beckoning you sweetly, but didn’t do it for you in the end – totally fine – there are plenty of pencil skirts to be found! Point is: attractiveness comes from a confidence in your person and in the way you’ve chosen to present yourself, not from how high or low your outfit ranks on the scale of fashion bravery or how well you conform to what someone else thinks is “hot”.

Honing glam at the lodge.
For me, glamorous onesies and bohemian… well actually all things bohemian.. are how I choose to express my inner mystery, but if the boyfriend jeans are more your thing, then just do you, and do it lots – the only way to truly look confident is to relentlessly love and express who you are.
So what makes you feel glamorous?
