I’m formerly the most boring person when it came to fashion. I say this because before Jacque from Looks For Lovelies came into my life I had two rules for fashion: 1. My clothing needed to be timeless, no trends, NO FUR, no wild colors or patterns/prints. This rule was created to avoid looking back at a ten-year-old picture of myself and to prevent the “what was I thinking?!” thought. The second rule is like unto the first, 2. I don’t waste money on hype, or fashion statements that are clearly trends.
SPOILER ALERT, Jacque broke me and both rules down as soon as we hit our first store. She said something that really sunk in and it has since removed both of my former fashion rules (hopefully for good) “The beauty of fashion blogging is to be brave enough to try things first.” I never thought of it that way before. My WHOLE life I’ve been trying to play it safe and would never pioneer a trend until it had been proven and approved. So I tip my hat to Jacque who actually got me to buy this wild beast of a vest, and heres to breaking my own rules and rocking a FREAKING FUR VEST! It was honestly so liberating to bring out my inner gangsta, and just have fun with it (even though deep down I felt really silly.)
