How would you describe your personal style?
I think a have a very personal style. I love to dress casual and smart at the same time. I could define my style as being unique always trying to express with my clothes and style my own view of the life. Finally, as an anecdote, I sometimes dress myself depending on my mood. If I have a sad day I usually wear a darker look and if I have a very very happy day I usually put many more touches of color and bright in the look.
