Someone in my family said to me this week, "So you've given up dressing vintage then?" and I guess the answer is yes. No one enjoys wearing the same style year after after, and it's natural for our style to evolve. I've dressed alternatively since my mid 20s, I started with more of a vintage look, but have come away from that in the last few years.
I feel that I have a strong sense of my own style, and enjoy playing with how I look. We all have the ability to create whatever image we want, it doesn't have to be expensive, and no one will point and laugh in the street. If you have a look you wish you'd felt brave enough to wear, I promise you won't regret just swallowing your fear and doing it. They're just clothes.
