Why I Will Never Want a Career in Fashion

One of the most-asked questions I receive from family members and strangers is if I would ever want to pursue something fashion-related as my full-time job. In fact, when I was a senior in high school, people would often ask me, or even assume, that I would want to study fashion in college. Obviously, I took a very different route by studying criminology and geography. I started college wide-eyed and undeclared, but I always knew fashion was on the list of things I did not want to study. When people asked me again during my Graceful Rags tabling event last week whether or not I wanted a career in fashion (or if I would ever blog full-time, if the opportunity presented itself), I was not surprised to find that my answer was still a quick and unequivocal “no”.

My Best and Worst Outfits Over the Years

Five years ago today, I hit publish on my first blog post ever… Crazy how time flies, right? It’s hard to believe what a big part of my life fashion blogging has become ever since I decided to start Graceful Rags in the summer after my sophomore year of high school. From thousands of photos, to 597 blog posts, to lots and lots of tears, it’s been a time and a half—that’s for sure. One of my favorite fashion bloggers Lee from LegalLee Blonde published a post a few months back where she shared her favorite and least favorite outfits from every year of blogging, and I thought that would be the perfect thing to post on my five year ‘blogiversary’. I’m really putting myself out there today because some of these outfits are cringey as heck—I hope you at least get some entertainment off my embarrassment. So without further ado, here are my best and worst outfits since 2016! Continue reading “My Best and Worst Outfits Over the Years”

April 2021 Month in Review

Wow, for once I can say that a month went by really slowly! Not necessarily in a good or bad way, but so much has happened over the past few weeks that it’s hard to believe it was all in April (I mean, I started the month in Las Vegas while still on spring break—that feels like ages ago!). In the month of April, I celebrated Easter with the fam, knocked out both of my Saturday entrepreneurship classes for the quarter, finally hosted the long-anticipated party for my friend’s birthday, and spent a day in Fort Collins. Oh, and I also had my first photoshoot with a real photographer! Today’s photos were taken downtown by Jacque Cochrane as part of a collaboration. Even though my blog is still small, I’m so grateful for the cool people I’ve met and the unique experiences I’ve had through this little space on the web. Now, onto the recap!
