June '14 • Eyes Everywhere




I'm only twenty years old. All my life, I've enjoyed fashion and experimenting with style, but I don't think I found my personal style until I moved to New York two years ago. Before, I was very much influenced by my mother--she studied fashion when she was younger and from that, she enjoyed dressing herself in colors and wild prints. Her fashion influence was prominent from my outfits as a child and teenager, and although I loved it at the time, it makes me cringe a little to observe some of those outfits in family photos and think 'Why did I even dare to wear that?!'. But hey, I bet all of us are a bit embarrassed about how we used to dress, right?

My big move to the City was a defining moment in my style history because I learned I could wear black/white or basics or monochrome without looking boring and plain. Also, coming from Southern California, I was familiar with that beachy, Cali-girl style--completely opposite of the New York City girl--which made me feel foreign to the way city girls dressed. I think my biggest influence these days comes from the street style I see from living in the City. If you look close enough, you can tell that everyone around you has their own, unique style that they call their own. I love pulling inspiration from here and there and incorporate it into what I feel most comfortable in and be...me. This eye print dress from Zara is something I would have not dared to try in the past, but this kind of quirky print is a trend that makes me curious so I've been enjoying its distinctiveness. To spice up the dress, I just added my ripped jean flannel and knock-off Birkenstocks for a casual vibe.

I'm glad I'm only twenty because I have my whole life ahead of me to have fun with fashion and evolve my style. I hope all of you enjoy fashion just as much as I do and come along this journey with me!
