"Fashion Comes from Within"

Mackenzie ChigloComment

I think for many people, fashion means wearing famous designer names from the runway, or following unrealistic trends that are often seen in couture magazines. In reality though, fashion is all about taking risks and trying new things. When was the last time you thought a pair of skinny jeans and a plain t-shirt was on the brink of the fashion scene? I'm guessing not recently; it's a safe outfit. When you find the drive to seek out and create fashion though, there are often great results. And that doesn't mean dropping hundreds of dollars on a dress. I've found many of my favorite pieces at H&M and TJ Maxx. It's all about the desire for something different, and the willingness to go find it.
