My Fashion Inspirations

Throughout history, fashion has played a versatile role in the ever-changing ways of the world. The elements of fashion are infinite, yet the main characteristic of fashion that I absolutely adore, would be its ability to reflect one’s own personality and creativity. The unlimited ability to depict individual style is what inspires me the most about fashion.


It all started when my aunt bought me my first Barbie doll,“Uptown Chic” theme Barbie. At that moment I didn’t know what fashion was but I loved her outfit. The doll’s outfit colors were white and gold with lace trimming. The coat was the best part I will never forget, an all white trapeze coat with lace and studs. For some reason while looking at my doll, I felt she was amazing and wanted to be just like her because of her attire. Looking at my Barbie, I noted how fashion can be a way to express certain personality traits.

I have taken this memory into my adulthood and as a sales associate for Nordstrom. The first question I always ask my guest is “what do you want your outfit to say about you”? I have gotten different answers such as, “I want mine to say I am to be taken seriously in the business world”, “I want it to say I’m sexy”. That shows me most people want their attire to say something about them, without them having to say it themselves.

Some think it’s superficial to want to dress like a Barbie, but Barbie has proven to me that in any outfit you can be who you want to be. Now in my early twenties, my closet consists of different styles such as cocktail dresses from BEBE, pencil skirts from banana Republic, to my Grease inspired jacket and leggings. Barbie is still one of the main reasons I love fashion but now I have other inspirations as well.


For my current inspirations, many things inspire. Blogs,:YouTube fashion gurus (Dulce Candy,beautybyjj, and nitraab), lookbook.nu, tumblr, and magazine’s. Everywhere I go I see fashion inspirations. I’m learning more about how to build my wardrobe by what colors look nice on me, pants that fit my body type and what is appropriate for my age. I’m constantly learning. As a result, my style is constantly changing in a positive way. I’m hoping to inspire someone’s sense of style in the way others inspire me.

First day of the semester

  Today was the first day of classes for me this semester, it was nerve wrecking scary. I’m taking twelve units this semester,fashion selection,fashion buying and management,Analysis Evaluation and Comparison of Ready-to-Wear, and Psychology. I have one homework assignment due Thursday for psychology, one for ready to wear and than one due next Tuesday for fashion buying. I’m overwhelmed but the classes are related to my major so I have to take it, to get the knowledge for the fashion industry. It was nice to see some familiar faces and new ones, I’m just so nervous this semester, I hope everyone going back to school has a great semester/quarter.
