this baby turns 1

The doctor's first words to this blog when it was born, followed by my child's response.

HAAAppy BIRTHDayyy toooo uuuuuuUUUuuuUUuu ! Man, I should've taken up singing. This past Friday, the style unknown turned 1 :) They grow up so fast *proud dad voice* I'm so glad that on June 14, 2014 after months of Rookie/Tavi/Petra obsessing, I decided to make a blog.  I was not even a month into being 16, and I was hungry to create, document, learn, and share. I was also a lot cornier. Let's revisit, shall we!

It's a good song! I swear!

Hi people! Idk what else to say, but welcome to my style blog! :-)I set this blog up about 2 months ago, but have been at a standstill as to how I was going to kick it off. It's a lot of pressure when you have the likes of Tavi Gevinson changing the world as I type this. I was thinking, What's going to set the tone for this blog? How am I going to write this thing? But most importantly? How am I going to start? And I still have no idea. Just like I have no idea what exactly is style. I don't want to believe that it's just the clothes you wear and how you wear them-I want to believe that it's something way more than that. I think it's the music you listen to, the way you listen to music, the food you eat, the way you carry yourself, the things you love, what inspires you, the way you live. Style is your life and what you're doing, even when you're unaware. It's a little bit of the unknown.

This blog is going to showcase the things I love, so I'm going to leave y'all with something I really love right now. It's a really sweet, paradoxical song about oblivion, called Oblivion by a band called Indians. (Disclaimer: I saw The Fault in Our Stars last night and I think I liked this song from the movie better than the actual motion picture)

Over the course of a year, I've grown and changed in a lot of ways--for instance, now I would never pay to go see a John Green movie :) I've become more aware and assured in the type of person I am. Ya girl is leveling up from a bad bitch in training to a bonafide bad bitch!

This platform has allowed me to live fiercely in the moment, yet still look ahead to the future and see past petty high school BS and drama, focusing on the light and good vibes I want to project to the world. I began this blog unable to find the words to describe something as infinite as style, and now I find myself unable to find the right words to describe how blessed I am to have this blog and to have connected with so many of you. I've continued to evolve into a clearer, happier, and boldly more ambitious person than I was only a few years ago. Art, creation, music, justice, love, protest, and adventure are the reactants to the product of me, and I hope to show what else may be thrown into the equation in the future <3

I'm gonna end how I started--with a song. It's an unrestricted, beachy, wild song about dancing by a band that sounds just as energetic, Little Racer. And OMG ITS A GOOD SONG I SWEAR ;)
