I've always thought of myself as an introvert, despite knowing how my personality can make a 180-degree turn when I'm amongst people I know and trust  plus, when a bit of socialising is needed, I'm not completely hopeless about crossing over to extroverted territory.

Perhaps it'd be more accurate to describe myself as an ambivert but I'm always to incline to say I'm introverted for some reason — to lower people's expectations of me, probably.


But I can't say the same for my style; if my style has a personality, she's more of an extrovert, for sure. My style is a lot more outgoing than I am so calling my style "extroverted" wouldn't be an overestimation. She is gregarious, she is unreserved, compared to the person she inhabits.

I like to imagine that when I'm dressed well and, more importantly, interestingly, it has the power to inject some of that sprightly energy into my somewhat self-effacing personality. As a sartorial legend once said: 
"I have always believed that fashion was not only to make women more beautiful but also to reassure them, give them confidence." - Yves Saint Laurent


    And now, about this outfit: wearing a suit always makes me feel confident, especially when the suit is paired with the best comfiest sneakers

    See: My plaid suit + Adidas slip-ons and customized beige suit + pink Adidas Stan Smith

    I've been wanting a striped suit for a while to channel my inner Beetlejuice but since I haven't found a black-and-white suit that would make Tim Burton and Michael Keaton proud, I'll stick with this striped linen suit for the time being.



      I've been carrying this bag around for a couple of months because of its roominess, sticking my Coca-cola clutch in it to store stuff that I'm not too comfortable being too visible to the public.

      The see-through vinyl bag is actually by Gudetama, the uber-adorbs lazy-egg Japanese character, bought in Japan three years ago (see it up-close here in Tokyo). If I had seen the bag now instead of years ago, I would've said no to it because, well, plastics, but since it was already in my closet I might as well put it to good use.



        Do you believe in using the terms "extroverted" and "introverted" to describe one's personal style? If so, what do you think is yours?

        Also: do you agree that my style is extroverted?
