Also, most of the clothes I wear are off-season or from sales, unless otherwise mentioned. My posts are meant to be more of a style guide/anecdotal experience rather than ‘on-trend’ every time, if that makes sense…
Every outfit has a style and every style has a story. What’s yours?
About the author
Sydney (AUS) fashion blogger with a penchant for overdressing and mixing styles. Serious maximalist. Every outfit has a story/theme, a #currentaesthetic if you will. Also a foodie, tea lover, treasurer of the UNSW Tea & Coffee Society, and a cosplayer at @mofumofucosplay.
It started off as a desire to archive my thoughts online – so a blog arose named “Your Daily Dose of Girl Power.”
It became a need to expand and be more appropriate to my new interests, so it became “sunlight streaming: the light that shone”, but in doing so it lost its way.
It culminated in a return to the roots of both blogs. current aesthetic considers the eclectic style choices of a whimsical woman, surrounded by changing social contexts and varying personal tastes.
How did it happen?
I updated my Instagram with an OOTD, the caption joking that my look was “an aesthetic inspired by 80s office ladies.” Realising that it was a simple way to summarise my ecletic style of the current image in one sentence, I followed it up with another look – “current aesthetic: the daughter of a Hong Kong mobster.” From there, I decided that creating OOTDs with an accompanying description that is succinct in conveying personal taste and emotions was a neat idea.
But of course, the whole blog upheaval did not occur to me until I was “busy cramming” for a Marketing 101 (or to that effect) class. After all… most good ideas are born from procrastination.
And so it was born – current aesthetic highlights the need to not worry about conforming to a single style while keeping it fresh and interesting within an inexpensive wardrobe.
So… what’s your aesthetic?
