I Don't Have any Style Icons in Fashion

It has been a few years in this blogging journey and I feel appreciate about everything I have done in every activity including being a volunteer or doing a photo shoot with other fashion bloggers, however, I still don't have any style icons in fashion industry. 

Last year, I remembered saying "I don't have any specific styles or favourite stars in this industry since I always inspired by music

Yesterday, I was asked if I had ever been influenced by any of my friends or culture, my answer's still "No, I don't even feel like I can be influenced by anyone when the only thing that triggers me is 'music'"

I actually mean it when I said that because I can maintain my personal branding as a street fashion blogger, not being changed by what society expects. It's like you know some people are easily influenced by what others are wearing and eventually they have merged themselves into the mainstream of the fashion trend. However, it's not going to drive us anywhere if we are wearing the same products, or have similar style like others.

Actually, it is like a weird feeling to be in this industry without the style icon like everybody else. I browse online and see what other people wear, or even read the article about the red carpet's fashion, however, I still feel like it doesn't suit me anyway. It is true that we all have to adapt the trend to be in our own styles, but sometimes it doesn't work that way because whatever that doesn't work is still going not to work. I have seen many celebrities or fashion bloggers wear flares or 70s vibe clothing pieces lately, and I think they look chic and beautiful, but such fashion style will never work on me since I am too short to wear flares LOL. Besides, my style is a street style and I don't want to be 70s trendy girl when I feel the most comfort in my own look. 

So what kind of music that inspires me? 

I love rock music *smile* but lately I have been into electronica tune. It always motivates me to go to my wardrobes and bring out the best in me. Well, my favourite artists or Djs are varied, but mostly I listen to Skrillex, Prodigy and Nicky Romero. I don't really listen to pop music or mainstream that much since I get bored easily. Honestly, I also listen to Beatles too :)


  1. I love the Beatles! I don't think I have any fashion icons either I get influenced by film and TV the most so I find most of my outfits are based around what I've been watching. It's totally ok to be your own fashion icon I think it's kinda boring to follow trends and see people all dressed in the same style xoxo

  10. You look amazing, I love your leather jacket and your necklace it looks so pretty!

  11. You are such a cutie, loving the hair. xx


  12. can't agree more! I don't like wearing something because it's a trend or everyone does so I also have to. I prefer looking different and not being attractive to others, but I still am true to myself.
    There are some bloggers that inspire me but it's not like "well let's wear the same from head to toe" but for example the fabric or color match inspires me to experiment. This is how I see it :)

  13. Your style is really so wonderful and unique - you are definitely the fashion icon in person! No wonder you don't have any icon :) I love your style really and I thought about if I have a style icon. There are for sure some women with a style I like. But I think I don't have really an icon - but maybe I should look for one to improve my style ;) Happy week!
