A personal style is something that can define you it’s like a fingerprint. It makes you feel so comfortable and confident wearing what you’re wearing no matter what people think. I love fashion since I was little and love to style my own dresses by mixing and matching, I used to cut my dresses myself ( which was something crazy to do and annoyed my mom so much) trying to restyle them to fit me more and since then I knew I have my own personal style knowing I still do it but thank god I have my tailor.
