Fashion, literature, and music have always gone hand in hand for me. I like to keep myself in a creative environment that involves a lot of different mediums. I've been thinking about this a lot lately as I have been applying to industrial design firms, where I can combine my engineering degree with my love for being creative and creating. Of course, those of you that are reading this more than likely share those passions with me. I couldn't imagine living my life any other way, and am so thankful that I have found these outlets.
As for this look, I wanted to combine some staple pieces, like this bag and jacket, with a couple more statement-y ones. I've been weeding out my closet lately, stripping it down to the bare minimum, really trying to discover myself and become more honest with it. I am not proud of the amount of stuff that is being discarded that I have only worn a couple times or not at all. After the clean-out, I am planning on investing in a few pieces that I can use to define my "uniform" - once I figure that out. Fashion is such a constant evolution, it is almost tiresome at times. Right now I find myself moving more towards minimal, quality pieces. Who knows, maybe we're never meant to be completely satisfied with what we own and what we do with it, and will go through life cleaning out our closets and starting over. What do you think?
