No, I’m not one of those style/stylist/designer prodigies. When I was younger, I was a skinny kid who could hardly ever find something that fit, so I kind of threw in the towel. But when I turned 19 and a half, I picked it up and decided that I would wipe off all the tear stains from the pity party, and learn how to dress myself (or towel myself off trying).
And there my style journey began.
There were plenty of ups and downs. A particularly harrowing down was when I gained weight and had to start from scratch. I have to admit, I threw in the towel again for a bit, confused and embittered.
However, I got back on the horse and the journey continued (or restarted, if you prefer) and I was back in the saddle again.
You may have noticed my use of idioms – Yes? Yes! I love them. They are like accessories in English. But I digress. Where was I?
Oh yes, my style journey.
On my second leg, I began to research on style. How to dress my body type? What is my body type? How to define my style? What is my style? And in the process I came across so much information. As I put it into action, through family and friends (with their kind permission of course), I realized that I loved fashion, more specifically style. I loved clothes and using them as a way to look good. I loved it when I saw a guy/lady with a definitive style – practically giving life to the art that was his/her clothes. And I loved to share what I was learning.
So this is MY JOURNEY continued. “Aluta Continua, Victoria Acerta” – The struggle continues, victory is certain.
I hope to use this platform to inspire others in their style.
To share is to care.
You are special. You are important. You are loved. 🙂
