Regardless of which time period you research, fashion has always been a pinnacle form of art – one that constantly changes yet also comes full circle often. What you wear and how you present yourself to the world have forever been lively discussions throughout history. From clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry, hair accessories, makeup trends, belts, scarves, eyewear, and (Sasee’s personal favorite) hats, the fashionable options are endless to create your personal style.
Speaking of having an abundance of choices, how many of you have the chronic condition of being fashionably late? Apparently, this personality trait is genetic. Completely wrecking my room with colorful clothing while trying to find the perfect outfit can get messy quickly, but the final result is usually well worth the temporary disarray.
Specifically dressing for occasions is my new favorite. I love a theme and any reason to get extra creative with different styles. A couple of years ago, I wrote how I like to keep my makeup natural (which is still true most days) and that the only one I trusted to do my makeup was my best friend, Jamie McNair (who recently graduated from cosmetology school). Well, due to my performance side gig, I have actually grown quite fond of designing fun and bold-colored makeup looks when it comes to special events. In fact, I have somehow become kind of good at it – even Jamie, the professional artist, has been impressed.
I love how fashion has the power to bring people together. At the same time, fashion also creates a safe space for people to express themselves uniquely. Take a look at our Spring into Style spread which shows off the many dynamic pieces from our local shops that will inspire you to express your passion for fashion.
