When one dresses for others, its fashion. When one dresses for their own enjoyment, that's style.
I avoid buying "trendy" articles of clothing. For one, it dates you. two, it labels you. three, trends last 6.8 days thus having to purchase an overwhelming volume of tacky clothing.
Nothing can be sadder than when someone comes up and says, "hey did you get that at (insert store and of label here)". I loath to be associated with a designated brand. I prefer amenity, Mass production is unbecoming.
Did you know cat-themed websites make up 24.6% of the internet? depressing.
