I like to wear whatever I feel like wearing. I'm not much to follow the trends because sometimes they go towards something that looks ugly. I like wearing jeans quite often. But then there are times that I like to wear a skirt. The skirts usually look 50s. I love the 50s. And Audrey Hepburn. And then sometimes after watching a movie I like, I'll improvise and add a touch of my favourite character to an outfit or something.
As for designer vs ... non-designer. It all depends on whether or not it's good quality. I prefer to buy something slightly more expensive that looks good on me and will last long as opposed to something from some cheap store that will tear after wearing it twice.
Overall I find fashion quite fun. I used to be not much into it at all. And so I looked quite bad all the time. But now I like to always look presentable. Even if it's just a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.
