What I can


Describe your personal style, however you’d like to interpret that — your clothing style, your communication style, your hair style, your eating style, anything.

I’ve never thought about myself in terms of style. I guess I have the style I can afford, which is not very high standard, nor original. When I was young they called me (unjustly) “hippy”. I never understood why because I wasn’t hippy. Something in my appearance? Who knows!. Now, nobody would call me that.

I’m not a fashion slave. I’m a middle-aged woman wearing normal stuff. Comfortable clothing, above all comfortable shoes for my poor feet. No jewellery.

I favour blue, red and black. I guess because I have a very white skin I need strong colours around my face. No too much accessories. Maybe some coloured scarf and a nice bag. No more ornaments. I don’t like to put on make up. I usually don’t apply any. I’m allergic to almost everything. A too sensitive skin.

I like skirts and pants but I’m almost all the time in jeans and sweaters or t-shirts and leave the skirts for feast days or special occasions. I guess this is average and boring but it’s my style.
