    In this chatty video, I answer one of my most asked questions: how do I find my style and the confidence to wear what I want? I break it down into steps, from assessing what clothes you already wear the most in your wardrobe, to finding aesthetic inspiration, building a moodboard, and tips for going shopping and styling outfits.

          My style is kinda a mix of this YouTubers style (Ava Jules) and some Billie Eilish because I wear a lot of baggy stuff

                  in middle school I wore my sister's sweatpants every. single. day.
                  all year, from the end of summer to the start of summer. The whole three school years. sweatpants.
                  people thought I just vibed like that.
                  but no, I was just too lazy to buy pants.

                                well the problem is that these days i like dark colors more, but they just look shit when i wear them. these kinda autumn colors would look better on me, but i'm just not in the mood for wearing them. idk, what's wrong with me.

                                  i'm really happy that i came across this video. my friend and i were cyber monday shopping the other day and we were both talking about how we would love to own certain pieces of clothing but we're too scared to wear them. if i had the confidence (and the money lmao) i would love to express my style.

                                            I have a fashion style I call "the marshmallow" which consists of soft colors & a soft style. Sometimes I go "roasted marshmallow" with deep neutral/earthy tones but still looking cozy & soft.

                                                My BIGGEST problem: My mom essentially has to approve of every piece of clothing I wear. I want to wear skirts and dresses, but my mom won't let me pick the ones I like the most. She always tells me: "It's not YOU." Sorry, mom, you don't actually know what my style is and what I want to wear.

                                                          The biggest problem in my case is that I’m literally 12... but I’m really much interested in fashion.
                                                          I’m 1.40 meters tall and I don’t like kids clothing but I’m just a little bit to small for women clothing 😒😫

                                                            i think my style is kinda basic and vintage for now its just like i dont have good stores in my city for clothes im searching for. im 13 rn i dress pretty unusual compared to the girls in my class for an example and its making me sometimes insecure but i try not caring and even developing it more to boost my confindence which i only have in my fashion so ya

                                                                                          so my problem is i really like the edgy,comfortable look but every once in a while i love to dress up and wear something more skin showing but modest like a crop top and ripped jeans or mom jeans but you see my parents like to buy my clothes for me and they like to dress me up as if it was 2007 and i also am known as the vsco girl when i really don’t want to be 😂
