Alternative Fashion | Black Woman Style

There are days I just want to put on some clothes and make myself feel good. Today was one of those days I just being true to myself. I coordinate meticulously and wearing alternative fashion was not a part of a rebellious or attention sealing phase. I have always identified with the freedom of dressing anyway you choose and I genuinely identify with various sub cultures. I enjoy picking out a whole aspect of my personality to display each day.

While most people save their creativity for the weekends or the days they are not working, I prefer to look in the mirror each day and see myself (depression, anxiety and all my flaws). I don’t really wear a lot of jewelry but I strive to survive in my own skin including what I wear. This is my idea of “normal” but it’s everyone else idea of “weird”. Even with my anxiety, I know people are taking about what I wear but I do my best to ignore such things especially when I am of color.

Today’s outfit is how I am feeling: Content and comfortable.

Harajuku Meet-Up #37

It is 2019 and I am still the same person. However, before I begin creating new j-fashion ideas, here is the last fashion style from the Harajuku meet-up on December 15, 2018.

I am inspired by cyber fashion, cyber pop, & cyber goth. In this society, it’s called Rave fashion but I digress. If you look into today’s Japanese street fashion styles, there are patterns of plaid, silver, black, and even some neon colors.
