Fashion With A Passion
“Style is the only thing you can’t buy. It’s not in a shopping bag, a label, or a price tag. It’s something reflected from our soul to the outside world—an emotion.” ~ Alber Elbaz
Fashion has always been an important part of my life. I love using fashion as a way to be creative and express myself. Coordinating outfits head-to-toe, shopping and stylizing is my domain! I don’t know about you, but when I’m wearing the right outfit I am able to conquer the day with confidence.
My absolute favorite accessory, what I find to be most important, what can make or break an outfit is of course, shoes. Growing up my love for shoes grew with my feet and now I have more than I can count, or should I say, more than I’d like to. But you know the saying “Anything is possible with confidence and cute shoes”!
Support Stores That Support All Women
It is important to support stores that support all types of women. There are many brands that are specifically targeted towards a certain body type or demographic of women. It is vital that we don’t stick to name brands. We have to give business to companies that are inclusive to all, especially when others are trying to exclude.
