Have you ever been reading something that made you think, ‘I wonder what the writer is like?’ I know I have. I always want to know more about the person who wrote what I am reading. ‘About The Author’ sections just don't seem to do much justice, so this week I decided that I would tell you about my fashion, where I like to shop, and some of my "Must Have" fashion items.
Fashion is my religion, and every weekend I hit the mall searching for the latest trends as well as pieces that are unique to help give what I'm wearing a memorable edge. I am a thrift shop and vintage store junkie, because you can find the neatest things there at a great price -- my last find was a real, black quilted Chanel handbag for $6!
I don’t shop at expensive department stores; instead you’ll find me looking for cheaper alternatives that create the same look -- instead of spending over $100 for Ray Ban sunglasses, I bought a similar pair at Wal-Mart for $5. If you were to walk into my closet, you would be overwhelmed by the superfluous amount of tanks, hoodies, straight-leg jeans, Keds sneakers, and flat sandals. Labeling my sense of style is hard, especially since I like to mix and match a lot of different looks. ‘Urban Hippie’ would probably be the most accurate way to describe my style. I love to wear a ‘Boho’ top with a pair of dark-washed straight-legs, worn with either my Keds sneakers or Grecian styled sandals. I love to mix and match things to see what I can come up with. Fashion is an art, and I like to think of myself as an artist!
