You Put a Spell On Me
I've never really been one for attempting to classify my style, and when asked the dreaded "what three words would you use to describe your personal style", I always kind of freeze. When it comes down to it, I think that my style is best represented by the fact that it's not easily classified, but instead nods to a variety of influences. The concept behind Bicyclette has always been street style meets fairy tale or downtown with a touch of whimsy, and that very much influences my aesthetic no matter what I'm doing, whether that's styling an outfit, dreaming up a photo shoot, or designing a layout. Sure, I love pretty things and believe that glitter is always a good idea, but contrast that with bold black and white print or toss on a leather jacket, and now we're talking. Style to me is personal, it's not about wearing a great outfit but looking the same as everyone else, it's about telling a story and showcasing who you are.
That all being said, this outfit is a pretty perfect representation of my style: a feminine skirt in the prettiest pastel shade, a vintage-inspired tee (this one in particular just happens to be my all-time favourite), a worn-in leather jacket that I've had for over six years, and a pair of statement earrings to add just a dash of sparkle.
