So totally true. Elegant efficiency. I'm trying to streamline my look to "elegant efficiency."

My style icon is anyone who makes a bloody effort.

Well I'm gonna be honest I definitely got soaked in with the whole 80's revival. BUT I think it is a matter of age. At least for me it would be weird to see a 16 year old all covered up in a camel poncho (example), but it is definitely nice to see cleaner things. I've been trying them out myself and I got to be honest I feel so good wearing nice clothes. I leave the ripped jeans and oversized t shirts as a stay home/lazy day outfit.

it's still looking back though...
to the 70's...
