Ever hear the expression, "Money can't buy you class?" Well, money can't buy you style, either. Style is a reflection of who you are. It is an extension of you and what you want to say to the world. It's another soap box for your shining personality and another form of self-expression.
Forget trends. Forget what the magazines tell you is "in" or "out." The first rule of dressing up is finding clothes that will tell YOUR story, that work with YOUR body type, and that will make you smile. At the end of the day, fashion should be fun and it's okay not to always get it right because everyday is another day to challenge your stylish self!
Style is about mixing high and low pieces and wearing them with a side of confidence. Whether you're rocking a pair of ten dollar heels or $100 jeans, style is the way you wear clothes to fit who you are without letting the clothes wear you.
My style is continually evolving. Yes, there were those unfortunate fashion faux pas in my style archives (corn rows, frosted eyeshadows, yikes!) but as I've gotten older and wiser, I've learned to know what works for me and what doesn't. When I moved to Manhattan, with way too many bright pants and JLO halter tops, I was fashionably impressionable. The streets of the city became my runway and I slowly found my style personality.
My go-to style looks range from loose fitted dresses to high waisted shorts and muscle tees. I'm a fan of meshing feminine pieces with rough and tough accessories. I teeter between laid back bohemian and casually glam. I've never met a pair of motorcycle boots (or Louboutins) I didn't like and don't even get me started on my obsession over a good hat. I've sacrificed a bad tan on my right arm for the sake of my arm candy. All these pieces and so many more, which you'll get to see on my blog, encompass my style files.
Now sit back, relax, and enjoy the fashion show!
