There's a certain aesthetic of looking like you got only one hour of sleep and Hannah Thompson's entire being perfectly encompasses it. With such a persona, you would think she's a brooding teenager. However, I realized she's one of the sweetest peas out there, and she dresses cute. If I were to label it, I would say a bit indie and a bit grunge. Being apart of clubs like "Girl Up", I had to ask her if her style was a statement, or if it was just "whatever comes from the closet". She responded with, "My style is about empowerment and it allows me to encompass my eccentricity. When I first meet people I can come off as somewhat stand offish, but my style helps me to break through that barrier by showing a small and unique part of my personality without having to out-rightly proclaim it. This outfit specifically makes me feel confident because of its meaningfulness and quirkiness. I always like to wear something that is special to me. For example, the anklet I wear over my right ankle was my moms from when she was a kid and my yellow sandals are from a thrift shop in Portland- one of the best cities I've ever been to".
"Wearing sentimental pieces allows me to gain a distinct introspection. I am able to become more in tune with myself which is, individually, very empowering. This look also represents my uniqueness with its strange and almost contrasting colors. At first glance it doesn't seem to work well together, but after a while you warm up to it. Though it's 'just an outfit', it provides a special insight into my personality- I'm strange but you'll learn to love me!"
Yes, I do love you Hannah. This concept of seeing someone's personality through their outfits clashes against the saying of not judging a book by its cover. On the flip side, I couldn't agree more. One can easily sense parts of an individual's personality through the pieces they decide to adorn themselves with. Certain garments just give us our character. However, if it turns out someone's personality doesn't match their outfit choices, it just adds to the mystery.
