Hello, hello! My name is Eileen. I will also be contributing to this blog. I have just joined the club of 22 year old college graduates. I studied history and the environment and would like break into the emerging field of environmental history. But beyond that, I love art and also am drawn by fashion. I feel like I can add something to this blog because I am an “every woman” kind of shopper. I don’t necessarily know the big brand names or shop at the expensive stores, but I’m a great bargain hunter because I know the secret of finding similar styles for less.
My style is somewhere between black, shades of grey, and bright colors. I particularly like to add touches of pinks, greens, and blues. Then I top it off with a string of pearls to keep things classy.
The people I see around me. I’m constantly mixing and matching things from other people’s “styles”. I’m always learning new ways accessorize, layer, etc.
Hands down my biggest obstacle is finding shoes that fit. I have unusually wide and tall feet and honestly a lot of the really cute shoes just aren’t made to fit my feet. I also have extremely narrow shoulders so it can be a challenge to find shirts where the shoulder line hits me properly.
Most Frequented Stores:
Target, Kohls, H&M, Wet Seal, American Eagle, and JCrew
A very good friend once told me “your clothes should fit you, you shouldn’t fit into your clothes” meaning that your clothes and should serve as a way to express you rather than you trying to make your clothes look good. My style is about making me feel good about the skin I am in.
