My love for Fashion
Posted on 11 February 2014
My love for fashion began at a very young age. I chose the picture above because I have always had a special fondness for fur and cheetah prints even as child. When I was young, my Nana gave me the nickname "Coco," but back then I did not understand what she meant. Recently Nana explained this nickname came to her while we were shopping in a mall when I was about five years old. I was going through the racks saying "love it, love it, love it ! Hate it! Oh love it!" Back then, my love for fashion was quite entertaining to my Nana. Hence the nickname "Coco." Yes, I know, it does not surprise you to know that my obsession started at a young age.
I have never shied away from my first love, fashion. Even though it can be cruel or too much to handle at times. You know what I mean, the cruelty comes from the picture perfect purse that is just out of your price range. If only everything we loved could magically appear the next day on your front porch, but alas it takes time to either save up for the purse or try to get over the loss and move on to something new. Then there is the disappointment that comes when a certain popular style emerges and doesn't fit your body type even though you really wish it did. If only we were like Cinderella and had a Fairy Godmother who could swish her wand and we'd magically have the perfect outfit.
Now, I am not one to say I have the best style, but my style is unique. From a young age, I have rocked certain styles that my mother thought were quite out there. She would ask, "Sarah, is that your outfit for the day?" Well, of course, why would I want to dress like everyone else? I want to be different, to be my own person, expressing myself the way I want to that day. I love the fact that my style is different. I bet many of you love the fact that you have items in your closet that no one else has. We women love to have an outfit on and know that no one else will be wearing the same exact outfit. Of course we all know that we might have the same shirt or dress as other people but it is how you style the outfit that makes it your own. Your body is the canvas and fashion is the medium you can use to create your own masterpiece.
I wish I could write a book about my love but alas who would read a book with grammatical errors written by a girl who loves fashion. I really hope that you are enjoying my blog. Please leave me comments below to let me know what you think and do not be afraid of the email caption. I WILL NOT BOMBARD YOU WITH EMAILS ! I promise :)
Have a great day!
