How my fashion style evolved over the years

My-Battle-With-Depression-

While I was going through my old pictures for my blog post research “how my fashion style evolved over the years” I could not stop laughing just of how I used to think, I was stylish and nobody could tell me anything about the latest fashion trends. I thought I knew everything about the latest fashion dresses, latest ladies fashion and everything that has to do about the latest fashion. Little did I know how my fashion style was about to evolve into the woman I am now.

How my fashion style evolved over the years

I remember when my friend gifted me with the above denim Jumpsuit. I used to check the trendy fashion shops online and  see what fashion bloggers were wearing at that year, 2012. I was still learning about the fashion world at that time and I made a lot of mistakes when it comes to the latest fashion trends for women especially in South Africa. A lot of South african fashion bloggers were in short dresses and short clothing items.

Year 2018: I am a student of life, I never stop learning just because I feel like I am comfortable with my fashion style. I still want to push boundaries and learn more about the fashion industry. I don’t think a person can ever stop learning about clothing style as it keeps on evolving to something new.

  4. Like Raph Lauren said, Fashion is not necessarily about label or brand, it about something else that comes from within and I believe you do have that thing inside you and don’t forget that the most important thing in a dress is the woman who’s wearing it. I know there is more to come from you and I can’t wait to see you reaching the top. Yep, yep!!!

      @Alain thank you so much, I really appreciate that and yes you are right; the woman who wears the dress is the most beautiful.

  5. Fashion has a language in order to learn how to speak it you must have what it called a “Body”, believe me, you have what it requires to bring fashion to the highest level. Congrat for the article.
