“The last thing I’d ever subscribe to are fashion rules. However, I do think that you should put effort into what you wear. Clothing is ultimately the suit of armor in which we battle the world. When you choose your clothing right, it feels good. And there’s nothing shallow about feeling good. Owning your style, however, is much more about your attitude then it is about what’s on your back. But don’t underestimate the transformational possibilities that getting dressed can afford you”.
As I’ve grown older I have come to the realization that fashion rules are meant to be broken. Of course there are certain times where modesty is necessary or uniforms are mandatory in a professional workplace…but I do think a person’s wardrobe should not be limited every day. Society puts pressure on girls and guys on what it thinks is “cool” to wear, thus restricting one’s personal style. Wear what you want to wear! If you think you look good then hold your head up high and walk around with that confidence in the outfit you love. This day I was attending a fashion event where I knew the majority of attendees would be rocking pastel-colored dresses, floral prints, chunky sparkly jewelry, and designer wedges. No one would dare come in wearing an all black two-piece set with a train attached to the shorts and chunky black heels… so that’s exactly what I did. NastyGal, the brand, prides itself in dressing the #GIRLBOSSES of the world. The one’s who aren’t afraid to take charge and stand out in the crowd. Besides their fantastic quality items and superb customer service, the message it’s creator, Sophia Amoruso, spreads is one every girl should keep in mind. Confidence is key ladies and gentleman. Rock what ya got and don’t be afraid to go against the grain once in awhile.
