day one hundred fifty-three

so, i've been thinking a lot about style lately. and generally how i don't have much of one at the moment. my sister and i were having this discussion the other day. there are some people you come across that just clearly have a particular sense of style. you can almost tell what their personality is just by looking at them. (although you should really never do that. judging a book by its cover and all.) anyway, i would like to have more of a distinct style once the whole brown dress is not part of the deal every day. i'm just not quite sure what style it is that i am after. i tend to be very indecisive. how do you decide this or are some people just born with it? any suggestions?
