I want a pink bomber jacket. I know everybody seems to have one, so it's not so different after all - but I want one all the same. I need something that's not black.
I want new sunglasses; big ones. I want them to be half like those round hipster ones and half not. I want them to be different from what's considered 'different', but with the same effect - making an outfit effortlessly cool on a summer's day (or any day really).
I want braids like those Rory wears in Gilmore Girls. I want my hair to be more 90's.
I want highlighted cheek-bones. I want them to sparkle in the sunlight. I don't want glitter as if I'm going to some indie concert; that's tacky. I just want to glow.
I want unusually shaped items of clothing. I want to be able to choose outfits that do not have anything to do with how frumpy my waist may or may not look, not out of convenience but rather out of uniqueness or art you could call it. I want something new.
I want lipstick of all the dark colours. I want brown lips, blue lips, purple lips, berry-pink lips, dark red - think Kylie Jenner, not gothic.
I want big boots - clunky, almost construction-site like. They'll be the kind that should be visualised with loose Levi's jeans, but I'll wear them with anything.
I want to look sophisticated, but not in a classic kind of way. I want to look different, but still good.

While what you wear can make you feel more confident, sometimes it takes confidence to make you wear what you want to wear. I hope that one day I find a style that just emulates me.
