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”.

Have you been seeing all those ‘Unpopular Opinion’ question boxes on people’s Instagram Stories lately?? If not, it’s an Instagram trend where people are posting a type-in response box for their followers to share any unpopular opinions that they may have. I always think the opinions are so funny and entertaining to read through! So I figured it might be amusing to do my own version of unpopular fashion opinions here on the blog. Full disclosure, this blog post is entirely lighthearted and for fun; it is not designed to call anyone out about their fashion choices! These are just my opinions, and I invite you to share your own unpopular opinions in the comments (or to try and convince me otherwise!). Continue reading “Unpopular Fashion Opinions”

Get to Know Me Through My Style!

If someone asked me how I define my personal style, I wouldn’t have a direct answer. Eclectic? All over the place? I’ve always had a diverse interest in my academic studies and hobbies, and the same holds true for fashion. From old fashioned dresses to studded jackets to tons of collared shirts, I like to think I have a little bit of every style in my closet! Sure, this makes branding my fashion blog a little difficult (I don’t share exclusively super feminine outfits, nor do I just share casual looks), but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Sometimes you can learn a lot about a person through the way they dress, so I thought it would be fun to share my most-worn styles, along with some of my hobbies and traits that most correspond to those categories of fashion. Hope you enjoy this unique get-to-know me post! Continue reading “Get to Know Me Through My Style!”
