Unveiling Meaning in Fashion
If you have a Quaint style personality:
You’re charming, peaceful, sweet, and independent.
You have a deep love for nature,
and the idealistic thought of more simple, natural and relaxed living.
You’re very idealistic,
but also very content with little
and you pride yourself on being
low-maintenance and easy to please.
You can be very quirky
and unusual to some people
because of your nostalgic love for old things
and the stories they hold,
and your playfully artistic nature.
You often keep to yourself–
Whether you’re shy
or just quiet
–but you certainly have an imagination
You create a world of your own
in your head…
Being quiet isn’t out of a lack of things to say, but a surplus.
Your peaceful but cheerful demeanor
comforts people and other living creatures.
You bring simple happiness into life,
just from your existance.
The styles that best exemplify these personality traits are romantic but cozy styles like Mori-Kei, Natural-Kei, and Cottagecore.
You find a lot of inspiration from nature, antique shops, the elderly, fairytales, and Miyazaki films.

Accepting weakness begets strength.
I am queen of my darkness, and equally queen of my light.
I can own my struggles, i can own my pains, i can own those emotions that feel so very close to death.
They are mine, but i am not theirs.
I can relax in who i am, moment to moment, and see beauty even in the dark and quiet.
Spending some extra time deciding on my outfits is my favorite way to recognize my emotions and prioritize my mental health.
Artistic expression has always allowed me an avenue to slow down, explore, and find beauty in the things i feel.
Sometimes connecting with my emotions feels like pure magic… I find power in being in sync with how i feel and accepting myself as i am.
Charming clothing that is reminiscent of quiet and content, cabin-in-the-woods life–perfect for peaceful, sweet, nostalgic, quirky, independent (and especially introverted) individuals with a love for nature, creative works, and the idealistic thought of more simple, natural and relaxed living.

What do you hope to “write” in this next chapter of your life?
I do not believe that false “joy” and stagnant “hope” are the answer…But i do believe that happiness can be discovered in little things when you feel like it’s nowhere to be found. When we’re able to find true happiness, we gain power to free ourselves, both on an emotional level and in a way that allows us to more easily work towards our goals, which will set us free on a more tangible level.
I challenged myself at the beginning of this week to stop being lazy about my outfits just because i have nowhere to go, and instead start getting dressed up in clothes that make me feel good about myself that day.
I was surprised just how much more empowered i’ve been feeling with this simple task. By putting on clothes i love, and doing so for no apparent reason besides deciding i want to, i’ve also been putting on confidence.
What do you think? Will you try getting #AllDressedUp this week and see what it does for you?
The day didn’t start out fantastic, but…I’m going to be fair to myself, with a focus on self-care and making sure i’m comfortable–first and foremost–while still pushing myself to do all that is necessary so that i feel accomplished at the end of the day.
So i’ll start off with comfy clothes and accepting that this post is being published later than the other ones were.
Oops. Two days in a row the title is not true. My family is going out this afternoon to see a play, and i decided to go with them. Funny how the week i decide to dress up despite having nowhere to go, i actually have places to go, huh?
