Every summer I take the time to reflect on my current style - how far my style has evolved, what my style has done for me (the impressions it gives off and how people perceive me because of it), and most importantly decide whether or not my style is cohesive with how I view myself. It may seem silly to others but I think that I am not alone in thinking that fashion is a self-expressive art, to communicate the wrong message is to misrepresent oneself. So I enjoy taking time to see how far I have come and where I want to go - in fashion and in my life. I use the summertime to bury my nose in books released by the power players in the industry (my most recent purchases are What to Wear, Where and Secrets of Stylists) and in my favorite magazines. I scour my favorite blogs (which I recklessly abandoned over the school year but finally was able to read all of my unread Bloglovin subscriptions) and save inspiring photos. Through this process I learn about myself and hopefully get that much closer in expressing who I am. Looks can be deceiving and it is my belief that we should always be crystal clear. Here are some things that I am currently inspired by at the mo'.
