Just recently, I’ve discovered a passion for men’s clothes. When I was in high school, I used to purchase everything boyfriend fit, but since I’m very short, I thought it made me look a bit silly. Now, I realize, I’m not the most girly person in the world, and I love the baggy fit and chunky walker boots look on women. And I think it just depends on your little accessories to make it look either feminine or masculine. My hair’s a bit of a mess because of the wind, my boots are messy because of the slush on the ground, but that gives me more of that androgynous look, so I’m not complaining. I’m very cautious with really bright coloured pants, and a lot of people are. But sometimes, you just need to be a little bold and step out of your comfort zone.

So we, Torontonians, were fooled. Just a few weeks ago, it was 12 degrees, and I could walk out without my huge winter jackets, and I didn’t have to freeze to death. I remember everyone saying how warm it is in Toronto this year, and how it was way colder last year. Turns out we were jinxing it! A minus 21 degree weather slapped us pretty hard in the face today. I was in the campus from 10am to 8pm today, and honestly, am so glad to be back home.
So I’m wearing my university’s men’s sweater, which I bought in my first year. I’m really not the type to wear sweats with huge UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO printed on it from head to toe, because I just never wear sweats. A few years ago, when someone saw me wearing this said that I must be real proud of what school I go to. Well, I do love my school, but this is just a sweater, and I just like the fit.

A fashion girl probably has thousands of fashion style icons. And I’m no exception! The style icons that I mention in my blog would probably show up in my outfits in fragments. I not only love them for the outfits they pull off, but I love them for the way they carry themselves. Some of them might not even need an introduction, but they definitely deserve it nonetheless.

Why a style icon?
When I first encountered her on internet, I was trying to get a visual idea of how I wanted to cut my hair. I fell in love with her natural, yet not 200% perfect hairstyle. But honestly, what hairstyle would not look good with her tiny dual ethnic face and those light brown eyes? I think she definitely knows her irresistible features, which adapt to millions of different styles. Being the model she is, she pulls off looks that vary from lolita-esque to harajuku. She’s got tons of fangirls who love her for the effortless looks that she manages, and I definitely have to agree. She does it so easily!
