Salmon, how I love thee...

The first official fashion post is here!

Oh how I love fashion. I grew up in New York City to a woman who's last name is Fashionista (kidding, but really). The high school I went to is High School of Fashion Industries and I started designing clothes when I was in middle school, mostly because of the example of my sister who wanted to be a fashion designer when she grew up. I applied to FIT, Fashion Institute of Technology, one of the top fashion schools in the country (world), and was accepted. However, that was a pivotal point in my life. I realized that being a fashion designer is not exactly what I wanted to do career wise. Yes, I love fashion, but that's not the route I wanted to take. I realized then, that I am my own person who needs to develop my own goals, desires, and passions. That moment actually helped me in many ways throughout my life, just in the sense of me getting to know ME. I'm still doing that. I don't think any of us really stop getting to know ourselves, because every once in a while we surprise ourselves and do something that seems so not like us. That's me.

Anyway, on with today. It was a cloudy day (I LOVE cloudy days). This is what I wore because salmon makes me all sorts of happy, on top of rainy days. :)

The salmon cardigan is a great find from the thrift store. I like thrift stores. Not necessarily the store itself, but the fact that I can find brand name clothes in great condition for a fraction of the original price. It doesn't bother me one bit. I have a washing machine. ;) And many times I find items still with tags on them, yes, because sometimes we buy stuff that we never wear and then end up not liking it anymore (or maybe it doesn't fit us anymore). I've been guilty of that a time or two, especially because of the weight clause there, meh.

The polka dot sailor top is from First & Chic (discontinued).
Jeans are Miss Me jeans.
Gold shoes are from Target.
