I watched a Lady Gaga special where she was interviewed by Jean-Paul Gaultier. In this interview, she discussed how she enjoys being able to constantly change who she is through fashion. She explained that her extreme outfits were not publicity stunts or a cry for attention but more a reflection of herself and her personalities. I loved that she said that because that’s exactly how I feel. Fashion is ever-changing, but the beauty lies in how different statement pieces express a part of who you are – sometimes even bring out a side of you that you didn’t know you had. Shoes do that for me. I could wear the same jeans and tee-shirt every day and change only my shoes to reflect my personality, my emotion, my life.
Journalism. Magazines. TV. Music. They’ve all played a part in developing my sense of fashion. My shoes have just been a part of the ride, but this blog is my tribute to my own personal style and interests. It is also giving me the opportunity to really educate myself on designers, design groups, magazines, celebrities. Fashion is beautiful, and every design or line has its own purpose. I admire everyone working in the fashion industry because they are so passionate about what they are doing. They absolutely love, adore, breathe fashion and all of its entities.
