when i was little i always had a great fashion sense. i always dressed myself in dresses with matching socks, shoes, bows, accessories, even my underwear matched! once I got into 3rd grade though, I started wearing uniforms and I cut all my hair off to my ears (bye twelve glorious inches of curly hair). those were the saddest days of fashion in my life. all the way until 8th grade. then i hit high school and became obsessed with mary-kate olsen and nicole richie. to this day they are two of my biggest fashion inspirations (those are going to come later on). after high school, i always had a great sense of style, but i just didnt express it in the way i dressed. let me correct myself by saying that i infused it through particular outfits, but now that im older I have done a lot better job of not just admiring fashion from afar. I don't just see things in a magazine and appreciate it and love it. I actually go out and try to buy that particular piece, or I try to buy pieces inspired by whatever it is I saw.
coco chanel said "women should always be two things, classy and fabulous." and what a bold but true statement that is. i feel that now that I'm older i realize now...HOW YOU PRESENT YOURSELF REALLY MATTERS. I want people to look at me and know that I am proud of who I am. I want people to see who I am by what I am wearing. I want my clothes and accessories, my style, to make a statement. I know that I'm not the type of person whose personality blends into the crowd, so my love for fashion should stand out and help reflect that as well.
these past few months i've just felt myself growing so much more confident. i feel myself becoming that girl who gets up in the morning and all i want to do is spend the morning picking out a fabulous outfit (or three) for the day. i could literally spend hours on the computer looking through fashion blogs, fashion photography, modeling photos. Its so intriguing. All of it. I wouldn't have my love for it any other way.
oh and just for you to know: ill be writing different themed posts about fashion! this was just kind of my introduction.
