It’s hard to be a 22-year-old female in today’s society and not be a tad bit obsessed with fashion. There’s so much to love and dislike about fashion, from the sketches to the final products there is an aspect in fashion for EVERY fashionista’s dream. I like to think that every female can be a fashionista of her own style, but sometimes that is not always the case. Sometimes the ‘daring diva‘ fashionista takes it too far on campus and other times the ‘reserved damsel‘ doesn’t go far enough for the party scene. Nevertheless, the differences of people are most notably expressed in the fashion world.
This is not a blog about how to style yourself or what is a fashionista or modeling or the fashion world as a whole. I am simply going to share with you my latest fashion obsession.
I have been in on-again, off-again relationship with my ‘fashionista’ self. In Bermuda, it was not always easy to find the latest fashions at reasonable pricing. However, I had the pleasure of being granted an internship at StyleBermuda.com and I was introduced to the Art of thrifting and a slew of stores that had reasonable pricing – it was just a matter of actually finding those stores. So my love for fashion and being able to afford those fashion found it’s soul-mate in Style Bermuda. Collecting fashion magazine became another obsession of mines, clipping looks that I wanted in my closet and looks that I thought just looked amazing (which were too expensive for my budget but fashionable nonetheless) all collectively boosted my love for fashion that eventually became a passion of mines.
I have recently found that my deep passion for fashion is rooted in design despite my inability to draw very well. Hence, my latest fashion obsession – JEWELRY making. I found that it does not required that much drawing if any at all and I am more of a visual person anyway. I’d do better showing someone a design that I wish to create than to actually draw it. So sampling is where I can see myself.
By the end of 2012: it is my goal to have launched a jewelry line and to be selling that jewelry under the name “Fashionably Late Designs“. There’s no mystic, deep meaning behind it. Although I can create one: however, simplicity is what I promote. So readers be on the look out for updates on this site, which will feature the first line of designs created by me in the upcoming months and do spread the word because exclusive deals will be given to the early supporters!
Until next time…
