Hi, /fa/.
Just wondering what you guys think of Zooey Deschanel style? I like it but I'm such a newbie I can't tell if it's tacky or not.
Maybe you could point me some stores that sell clothes with a vintage feeling that look cute for cheap? For everyday wear?

Obviously new here. I'm from /cgl/ but I figured they wouldn't help much. Thanks in advance!

She pulls it off very well. Her haircut is also essential to how she looks (google pics of her without bangs and prepare for confusion).
I think that if you're going to go for a style like hers, you should turn it down a notch. Make it a bit more "neutral"-y, if you know what I mean?
And for the other question: I don't know any stores for that sort of thing, I barely know w2c stuff for myself.

clothes costs money. you can pay a "reasonable" amount for a piece designed for mass-production by third world children for a wide american market, but you have to accept that the clothing is utterly loveless; made by people who don't care, for consumers who barely care.

if you want fast fashion, fine; go to the mall and you can look like everyone else, and save money doing it. maybe you can accentuate your body in ways that make average people find you more attractive, maybe you can keep your wardrobe in-season and "tasteful", but you will not set yourself apart from the dull mass of human beings by approaching clothing that way. You will never make any statement that says, "This is who I am; I am different, and I am substantial."

if you want to join the 1% you need to spend real money.

simple things like that would probably work for you. You can always experiment further with it when you go out shopping next time and see what you can pull off and how you can build on top of what you have and so on and on.

Nor does she need to if that isn't what her goal is. Fashion doesn't have to be about "setting yourself apart from the mindless masses"(- by buying exclusive high tier clothes). Your clothing style should compliment who you are; you shouldn't build your persona around your clothes. And if you are really so desperate to make yourself stand out and be "substantial", your personality, and who you, are will do that, not the fucking clothes you are wearing that day.

Yes, as long as you ask them to also frame your face.

In all honesty anon, you're just looking to shop at f21 and be quirky. Zooey Deschanel is pretty mainstream, I don't know why you came to us for advice.

Look into fashion trends like twee, or maybe Otome-kei from Japan to have a better idea of what constitutes good, girly style without looking like an oh so quirky retard like Zooey.

Depends on your face shape. I'm better at talking out my ass than giving real advice, when it comes to women's fashion. Haircuts are a difficult and highly individual thing, that often take years to figure out for yourself.

shoo patriarch devil

Fashion doesn't need to be a desperate way of making up for a lack of substance in other areas. I agree that clothes should speak to who you are. There are tons of designers out there, with distinct flavours to their work. There are many different ways to dress to your personality. I think you can do that more easily if you refine your ideas about fashion by paying close attention to it, and open your mind/budget to some of the designers who don't have the business structures in place to make their clothing inexpensively.

I understand that, but considering OP is just starting to start out a new sort of style, surely buying high end clothes isn't the right way to begin?

oh, heavens, good point.

don't immediately start buying high-end clothing. definitely do a lot of looking around and building up taste first!

by the same token, don't immediately spend a lot on low-end clothing either.

I read once somewhere, and agree, that the best way to approach fashion is to go shopping frequently and casually, and bring away one well-considered piece or nothing.

also, op, end-of-season sales are your friend

I did not say that clothes make you different or substantial. I said that clothes can help you communicate your personality visually and make a statement about what your character is like.

And let's get real: people take what you do and say more seriously when you look good doing it. Is that sad? Maybe. We're aesthetically motivated creatures, aren't we? It isn't always bad, though. People have wondered about beauty, and what is the point of it, and what is it, since time immemorial, and I can't summarize everything thought about it in this post, but in general it's easier to embrace it than reject it. And it can be sublime, sometimes.

men like twee because it looks powerless and delicate, which is an unfortunate instinct to domineer that we have

I can hardly say I "like" it when a woman dresses in a way that is powerful and imposing, but I can respect it. I tend to think that it would be weak of me to fall for twee, and that the ultimate goal would be to aspire to a woman who cannot be dominated.

that's why I tend to be more attracted to the idea of someone like Rihanna than a twee qt3.14, because Rihanna looks indomitable, powerful; twee capitalizes on weakness, delicacy, etc. Lord knows what Rihanna is really like -- I certainly don't -- But that individual essence speaks to me more than the cutest of qtp2ts.

AJM Smith, for me, summed up the essence of beauty in his poem The Lonely Land:

Cedar and jagged fir
uplift sharp barbs
against the gray
and cloud-piled sky;
and in the bay
blown spume and windrift
and thin, bitter spray
at the whirling sky;
and the pine trees
lean one way.

A wild duck calls
to her mate,
and the ragged
and passionate tones
stagger and fall,
on these stones---
are lost
in the lapping of water
on smooth, flat stones.

This is a beauty
of dissonance,
this resonance
of stony strand,
this smoky cry
curled over a black pine
like a broken
and wind-battered branch
when the wind
bends the tops of the pines
and curdles the sky
from the north.

This is the beauty
of strength
broken by strength
and still strong.

IMO, a beautiful woman is the one that evades definition.

It's not like I want to be like her, I just like her clothes. Also, I think my body type benefits from cinched waists, so....

This is amazing! Definitely worth saving for.

I kind of get what you're saying (even though you chose a terrible example for a strong girl - didn't she get beaten, like, twice? By the same man?). But I believe there's something in the modest and sweet kind of fashion that shows strength as well. I mean, people usually expect us girls to dress sexy and provocative. Isn't it the opposite of "submission" when we just refuse to cooperate with those expectations?

Thank you so very much for everything.

>> No.7178723

You think just because Chris Brown put hands on Rihanna that he's in control? If anything that's a sign of desperation on his part. I think it's unfortunate that when we see a girl stay with a guy who hit her, we think "she must be victimized and weak". Rihanna doesn't need Chris Brown, she could drop him and pick up someone else any time she wanted. If she chooses to stick with him, that's her choice and nobody else's business, and she probably has a reason.

It's not the same, in my opinion, as a woman who accepts systematic abuse out of fear. I really don't think Rihanna is afraid of Chris Brown.

As for sexiness, it's hard to say.The key thing is to say that dressing in any way is not about what men want. Sexiness can be empowering, "modesty" (though I hate the word) can be empowering, too. The problem comes about when you say "this way of dressing is being a victim of mens' expectations"; this type of discourse robs women of their agency, in a way.

It might sound like I'm contradicting what I said before about my own tastes, but I was only reflecting on what it means for the man's mentality; I wouldn't dare guess at what the motivation for dressing 'twee' is. I just know what it looks like to a man, and what kind of a response it elicits, and it's a feeling that I wouldn't like to indulge in myself. It's similar to the disgusting One Direction song that goes "you don't know you're beautiful". Men like a woman who doesn't know what power she has over them.
