My three idols in the fashion industry are; Anna Wintour, Cathy Horyn, and Kelly Cutrone. I look up to them because they are three very powerful women who have all started at the bottom and are now at the top. For Gods sake Anna dropped out of high school and never went to college, and now look at her. Cathy grew up in a tiny hick town and now works for the New York Times. But my main rant for this blog is why do I have to spend hundreds of dollars on a Chanel sweater to be stylish. Fashion is all about being one's self. And that means if I find a label-less sweater from a thrift store that I can pull off, I should still be considered stylish. Stylish isn't about wearing the most expensive clothes, it's about being able to put items together, and actually pulling them off and looking good.

I truly do not understand the meaning of this blog, maybe I will later, but I guess my main point is I think it's ridiculous that the main fashion publications of today tries and dictates what we wear. I think they need to stick on the message of personal interpretation of fashion, instead of sticking to the mainstream meaning.
(Cathy Horyn, Fashion Critic for The New York Times)
End of rant. I'll probably regret posting this tomorrow, but that's life I suppose.
Just remember everyone, we are the future of fashion, and as the future we decide the future rules. And just because someone cannot afford to wear Oscar De La Renta, or Balmain, doesn't mean they cannot be considered stylish. That is all.
