One of my first fashion memories was in the 2nd grade. It was back to school time, my Mom bought me the coolest outfit for the first day of school. The top was a hot pink short sleeve button up with an over-sized print of 50s cars, palm trees, and cat eye sunglasses (it was the 80’s) with a dark pair of stone washed jeans. I was looking hot! After the first day I noticed that my friend Beth not only had a great outfit the first day, but a whole week’s worth of absolutely amazing new outfits. I wanted them ALL! Instead of studying reading comprehension I was studying fabrication as I stared at her prints and fabrics. It was then that I became aware of fashion’s ability to make school a lot more bearable.
I would love to hear one of your 1st fashion memories. Join me on my Facebook Page and post your story.
