We Do It For The Love Of Fashion…

Hey guys,

Ever had that one friend you think over dresses for every occasion?

Yes!

Well I am part of that “bad gang”, “the fashionistas” that over dress for every possible event… lol.

Here is guide to help you understand our mind-set a little better.

For us …how we dress has nothing to do with what other people think … It is simply how we chose to express ourselves… we set a personal bar on how we dress that is typically higher than most people.. The same way some people push themselves to be the fittest ( health wise) or the most productive (work wise).

Most people believe we do so to show off or make a point and that is sooooo far from the truth … It is a life style choice.

Believe me when I say it take us even more time to dress down than it does to dress up …because of the conscious effort we have to make not to look over dressed.

For me being a creative person, my body is my canvas from head to toe. taking the time to style my hair to match my look for the day, pairing the right shoes with the right outfit to achieve a certain look… hard work for most… comfort zone for us.

Our hair is our crown so styling it any which way should always is a thrill. For others its makeup or doing their nails. We do what makes us feel pretty, for ourselves first …before anyone or anything else.

Everybody can learn to tap into the Fashionista mind set in some small way and I would encourage it…
