Ah, Fashion Week. With New York Fashion Week coming to a close, I figured this would be the perfect time to discuss my complete lack of fashion and what I thought was legit when it came to fashion. So here we go.

Style is something you’re inherently born with. Style is not learned. It cannot be taught. It is in your genes, like your eye color or your favorite ice cream flavor. That being said, this particular gene was obviously skipped over when deciding my eye color (brown) and my favorite ice cream (vanilla… duh.) While my mother and younger sister both have the amazing ability to put clothing together and look done up without trying too hard, I, on the other hand, have trouble picking out what to wear to work in the morning. I will sometimes even avoid going out because it’s easier to stay home without pants. I just don’t know how. I wish I did because it seems like a magical way of thinking, but I just cannot, for the life of me, dress myself. It sucks. But even though I can’t dress myself, I do know how to appreciate fashion and style in others.

Ok now that you know I suck, here are some pictures from this week that I really liked!

First things First… street stylin’ from NYMAG

Fashion is cool. It has built an entire empire by telling people what is cool. But overall, fashion is cool. It allows people to be artistic while expressing themselves. And it can be pretty, or ugly, or somewhere in between. And because of that MILLIONS OF PEOPLE have a job. So don’t knock it kids. Just enjoy the pretty pictures.

Happy Fashion Week everyone.
