Yves Saint Laurent famously said “Fashion fades, style is eternal.” What differentiates fashion from style? Fashion can be considered as a tool, in which consists of many trends in each season and pieces created by designers. Fashion focuses more on the object and creation rather than the person wearing it. While style focuses more on the person. Style makes fashion stands out. Style makes fashion livelier. Another difference between fashion and style is that style goes beyond just clothes. Style is affected by somebody’s thinking process, culture, habits, activities, personality, and attitude.
The process of discovering our personal style takes time. It’s a personal and iterative process. Our journey in finding personal style may represent our identity’s revolution too. A lot of us are still going through the phase of knowing what we like and dislike. Trust us, it’s not impossible when we say that your personal style won’t remain exactly the same throughout the years. Read and get inspired by the story from Bry and Puteri, our lovely customers, about their personal style.
Q: Hi Puteri! Can you describe your personal style in 3 words?
A: Casual, Versatile, and sexy.
Q: Now if we look back to Puteri 3 years ago, how would you describe your personal style in 3 words?
A: Bohemian, sexy, and heels
Q: Do you find any differences between your personal style 5 years ago with your current style? Since we see some words to describe your personal style are different now.
A: Mostly because I feel like my current outfits are more edgy, but then sometimes it can be formal, sometimes sporty (I wear more sport shoes than high heels now hehe), so I can say I’m more adaptive and versatile now. While 5-10 years ago, I couldn’t live without tight clothes and bohemian stuff.
Q: So, where do you usually get your style inspirations then?
A: I mostly surf through social media. My top three are Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube! I also browse Yuna&Co.’s Journal!
Q: Your journey is quite transformative! Care to share more about you finding your personal style?
A: Yes, the journey to my current personal style is quite “dramatic”. After giving birth, I had to find clothes that flatter my body at that time and it wasn’t easy at all. Eventually I had to compromise and let go of my tight clothes while slowly adapting a more casual approach and here I am with a more versatile and sexy look. I’d like to give a shoutout to Yuna&Co. as well because you guys helped me find my current style. This is because my first order was really satisfying so I did order again.
Q: Aaww, we’re glad that our service helped you. By the way, how was your first encounter with us?
A: I saw you guys first on my friend’s Instagram story. Uh… my friend isn’t exactly a fashionista hehe. Then I watched her did an unboxing story and wow she looked great! So I tried to lurk around your Instagram and ordered. I can say we’re a match so I keep ordering from you. Also, my job is pretty time consuming and I’m out of town a lot for business trips, I definitely have no time to shop for clothes. That’s where Yuna&Co. comes in handy!
This is Puteri with the items that we picked for her” What do you think?
