"When you don't dress like everyone else, you don't have to think like everyone else." - Iris Apfel.

I've been following for a while now and I felt like it was about time I stated my love. I love Elisa and Lily's approach on personal style and I love how open-minded and nonjudgmental their approach is. 

Stand Alone In Your Own Skin is no exception: it's a tribute to diversity. But it's also a reminder of sorts: style should be about self-expression, it should be about you, nothing else.

'With Hopi Indian braids, Sarah has a consuming romance with American history; Armina, a coy modesty in a linen frock that expresses her love for her Muslim faith that keeps her grounded; Arpana, a wealth of eclectic emotions in a sequin mini and Tokyo kimono, revealing her need to distract herself from the recent death of her parents; and Elena, a brazen willingness to break from her solemn Soviet roots by wearing anything, like the gaudiest of necklaces with a fuzzy, eye-popping floral vest.'
