Hi! I'm Jest. I live in Scotland and work in a bookshop. I've only really developed an interest in personal style in the last few years, so my own style is still undergoing a period of rapid evolution while I try to define which sort of things suit me and which don't. I currently follow a lot of fashion blogs that are not hosted on dreamwidth, and I was thinking it would be nice to have a community where I could make the occasional post of my own without boring all the people who subscribe to my journal. So here I am!

Three things I own that are most me:

1. My 1939 New York World's Fair scarf and charm bracelet. The history nerd in me is obsessed with the 1939 NYWF. I love the deco style. I also love the feeling that I am wearing a piece of history.

2. My 8 eye Doc Martins. I always feel 100% more badass when I'm wearing them.

3. My grey wool/silk blend pleated mini dress. It's the best article of clothing I've ever owned. It looks smart at work and yet is still chic in the evening. It's appropriate for pretty much any occasion I might find myself in (with the possible exception of sweltering summer heat). It also fits me absolutely perfectly, which is pretty much unheard of. My confidence gets an instant boost whenever I have it on.

And. Who found that 1939 scarf for you because she loves you?

(and tried to dress you, with varying degrees of success.)

I like to think that I had a bit of an effect on you :P at least in terms of thinking about what you want to own so you don't feel like crap 98% of the time. <3

Hello! Wool is my favorite fabric. And I love stuff from the 30s and 40s.
