"

But the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work.

We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.

Finding Your Own Style by manhattandressed featuring a green pin up dress
Hey guys, it’s Nikki! A lot of you guys have been asking me, how to develop your own style, so I figured I’d make a guide to help you guys. Although it sounds like a simple thing to do, in reality it takes a lot of trail and error to find your own style. Now they’re so many different styles out there, and each and every one of you guys are so unique that you can really make any style you’d like. I’m not going to give you cookie cutter magazine tips, like, finding the right shades for you because in reality, that’s not important. The important thing is feeling beautiful and confident in what you are wearing.
Here’s a bit of a backstory on how I found my own style, and since I’m only 16, my style will develop and evolve as I grow older. I would say my style is somewhere in between edgy, runway, girly, and vintage. When I was younger, I’m going to be honest, I didn’t have much of a style, I just wore basic things. Looking back at what I used to wear makes me cringe, but then I realize it took all of that to get me to where I am. I finally found my style August of last year and when I did, trust me it felt amazing. You just get so excited putting together outfits, and being proud when someone compliments your outfit because you know that you picked out that outfit, you didn’t copy it off of anyone else. 
Here are some tips:
Get inspiration, but don’t copy. This is a huge thing I see happen a lot, people have a celebrity idol, and instead of getting inspiration from them, they just copy every little thing. Now don’t get me wrong, if this makes you happy by all means keep doing it! Who am I to judge? But, I always want the best for you guys, and trust me when I say this, there is a difference between getting inspired, and copying someones style completely. People can see through it, especially if it’s a celebrities style you’re copying, and in the long run you won’t be known for your style, you’ll be known by the style of who you’re copying. 
Go to a store, and try on different styles. Really! Go to a store that has a wide variety of options, like Forever 21, and try on clothes from each different style. You really don’t know how much you’ll like a style until you try it on and see yourself in it. 
Embrace your size/shape. Guuuurl, if you got a big booty or boobies go on and embrace it. If you have small boobies (aka ME) embrace that too! Find a style that highlight your best features (see how i’m not saying to wear cloths that flatter your body type bc honestly you can wear anything the hell you want as long as you feel happy) all I’m saying is to highlight those features. Trying to cover it up can really shy you away from different types of styles that you can try out and that really makes you miss opportunities of discovering new styles!
FUCK WHAT OTHERS THINK. Honestly. Fuck it. A lot of people are afraid of trying out a certain type of style because they’re afraid of what others may think about them but there comes a point where you have to stop and think. Do these people pay my bills? Do they buy my wardrobe? Will what they’re saying even matter to me after high schools over? All those answers are no. I’ve come to a point where I really don’t care about what others may say about me or the way I dress. If it makes me happy, and it isn’t offending anyone, why should I stop being happy and dressing how I’d like for the sake of others? There can be one person who doesn’t like your style, but then there can be 50 people who are obsessed with it. The minute you stop caring about what others think, is the minute your style will evolve and shine through.
Mix and match. If you’re indecisive (like me) just combine all the styles you like and make them into one! You’re not food at a supermarket that’s just stuffed into one aisle, you’re a human being with so many different colors and dimensions, you don’t have to fit yourself into a mold of a style. That’s boring!
Rock what you’re wearing. Last but not least, rock what you’re wearing. If you don’t rock it, nobody else will accept it. The thing about confidence is that it’s contagious if people see that you really don’t care about what other’s are thinking of you, and are confident in what you’re wearing, nobody will even have the guts to say anything about your style.
Those are just some of my tips, not the cookie cutter tips given by magazines focusing on colors, and “dressing for your body type” whatever the hell that is. I hope this helps you guys, and I hope you all find your style throughout these years!

most amazing feeling to wake up in fresh mountain air, look out through a cozy tent and see nothing but ocean, waves, and nature for miles. Camping in Big Sur was a trip
