Welcome to My New Blog!
"In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different!"
I love this quote by Coco Chanel, the goddess of style. At first glance, it seems a little cliche, but in a day and age when we all strive so hard to be different, distinctive and unique, I find it both amusing and a little disturbing that so few of us actually achieve individuality.
This is part of the mission of my blog-to take an element in our environment that someone, be it a designer or corporate marketing department, declares is 'in', and make it your own. In order to do this, you must posess the skills of self-awareness, and self-editing. Not every trend is for every body, and it's usually easier to tell when someone else is doing it wrong than to identify a 'yikes!' fashion moment in the mirror. That being said, fashion should be fun, it should make you feel sexy; like the best version of yourself you can be. The more you figure out who you are and what it is that inspires you, the less like anyone else you will become!
I look forward to blogging about fashion, style, well, just about anything beautiful and inspiring, whether it's a subject specific to Scottsdale fashionistas or style connoisseurs across the globe!
Cheers for now,
