where i get my fashion inspiration

I love fashion more than anything. From the moment a child can formulate sentences and have an understanding of what it means to love something, that’s when I knew I wanted to be in this industry. I have a project from years ago, I was in first grade maybe, and it said, “When I grow up I want to be a vashion designer.” I knew I wanted to be that before I even know how to spell it. Up until 16, I told people, “when I’m older, I am going to be a fashion designer.” At 16, I realized what that meant and what more to the industry there was. Then from that moment it was, “I want to be in the fashion industry… a stylist… a model… a fashion photographer…” Anything you could think of. I love it. All of it. I love the way one can put an outfit together and they don’t even need to speak and you know what they are trying to convey about themselves, and who they are, and what their style is.

My style has always been unique. I’ve never known what to call my style or how to explain it. I just wear what I want with what I have. I mix and match colors, patterns and styles because I think it looks cool. I realized recently that my style is inspired by both the 50s but also by a glam, Parisian and faux fur look.

Some fictional characters I am inspired by are: Blair Waldorf, (young) Carrie Bradshaw, Massie Block, Veronica Lodge, Cher… you probably see a trend here.

Real people who I am inspired by: Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe.

Here are some looks from Pinterest that inspire me and my style.

 

The fashion industry has changed and grown so much with the media today. I love fashion bloggers and Instagrammers but part of me wishes we could go back to a time of Coco Chanel and Audrey Hepburn.
