I'm not the biggest fashionista out there, but I truly do admire fashion as an artistic form and love to be trendy. One of my many dreams and aspirations when majoring in journalism and communications in college was to work in NYC for a big name fashion magazine like InStyle, Lucky or Glamour. Though I never even interned for one, I did get to work on the other side of the fence in a Fashion Public Relations firm that pitched grass root designer products to magazine editors. It was definitely an interesting experience in the city and I gained a lot of work experience and insight into a lot of different fashions.
I will say that in the summer of 2005, I fell in love with Bohemian fashion. I guess it is because deep down inside I want to look like a gypsy and I'm really a hippie. Don't tell anyone.
So my sister, bestie, college roommate, friend since 1st grade and one day maid-of-honor suggested me as a "stylist" on her brother's new fashion site that he is recently starting. He needed someone to cover the Boho style, and since she knows me oh so well, she suggested me to write for it.
The site is TeamStyling.com, and what makes it unique from, say a fashion magazine, is that instead of telling you what to wear and what looks good, each "stylist"/blogger on the site is blogging about their own personal style and what they think works for them and why. We can also cover a celebrity style that we are fond of, or other people around us who we think look great.
Since I am surrounded by inspiration because my church family is so fashionable and awesome! And there are a TON of artsy people in Orlando who ride this free-spirit fashion wave, I feel I have enough material around me to cover great fashion right in my town.
That said, if I ask you to pose for me, you know why! I want to make your style known, because it's awesome!
It's a compliment from me to you ;)
