"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening" - Coco Chanel

The way we got to be...

My vintage typewriter (Modesto, CA). Be inspired by all the little things.

Go vintage with old school style...
A variety of tastes.... explore your own limits and heights.
My Item of the day: Long Boots
You can style up these boots on a night out with your friends, on a date, or just the social light of clubs and chill places. Express yourself with a bold boot to compliment your outfit; whether a short black skirt, or a romper howe ever you feel like accessorizing your boots.
you pick your style...

Boots in all shapes and sizes...
Along with long boots there is other options of a smaller ankle boot, or a half size boot that reaches calf. You be the judge of whether your bold enough to take the Long Boot Challenge.

Everyday we express ourselves through our clothes, whether the hat we decide to sport or the long chandelier earrings we are rocking the runway everyday we step out of our homes to do errands, go to work, go to school, to get groceries, or basic enough of going to put gas. So challenge yourself with the ideal of being EXPRESSIVE. We only live once why not be the person you want to be and rock the show.
What is it that you should or should not do is really up to you...

My outfits of the Day
Perfect wear for the perfect SUN
  : Romper
 : Boyfriend Denim Short

 : Zipper Tank
Why? I chose the Romper because it is a fun and easy outfit to pull off. It is comfortable enough to move around and about playing soccer or beach volleyball but also stylish enough to sport at a bar or even at a friends barbeque. The boyfriend cuffed short I chose because it is not as revealing as the classic mini short but it is tasteful enough to wear out with your friends to lunch, or even to a date both trendy and classic. The last item I chose was the zipper tank showing the tree, i felt that this item would be perfect in wearing out in the sun on a picnic, or even out on a date at night walking the beach. This trendy tank is accented with a zipper back piece that changes it to an item that can be used out to a good time at a more chill bar with out being to dress down by accessorizing it with some black leggings or even some denim skinny jeans. To outline the shape of the tank. 

Forever 21 up in the air Debate
Forever 21 Inspired: I am really in debate right now over Forever 21 I love fast fashion because it gives individuals that can't afford regular middle class brands the chance to express themselves through trendy clothing. Although there is the negative impact it has had on designers and the push to put other boutiques and business out of business, I am still stuck in the middle. Why? I guess when going to college it was always affordable to go to Forever 21, to find your regular tees for school, even the more professional stylish slacks dress pants, and even button up tops and the out on dates kind of clothing. It was more affordable to buy this type of clothes with out being stuck in trying to buy some more pricier clothes at Macy's, or even Dillards. Coming from a middle class family and not growing up in the city when going to college it was a struggle to find clothing that was trendy. But i do agree that businesses shouldn't have to compete against these fast fashion business because of economy of scale. I do not agree with the over massive amount of clothing and textiles its causing to be taken into dumps and hurting the environment but I do see both sides coming from the college student struggle and now the college graduate that sees the hurting it has had on our environment in Europe where Fast Fashion began.  Whether this store is bad, I will continue to do my research to find a side to side with but at this moment I am stuck in between. You be the judge of what you think. I do believe that individuals should stand for their ideals and be expressive. Being expressive through their words, their writings, their looks and even their clothing.
