I'm starting this blog to chronicle my transformation. As a grad student I will have lots of opportunities to show off my (future) fashion sense: classes, internships, nights out. I'd like to blend my own frivolous style with the professional look I'll be required to adopt once those internships start.
To start, I'm revamping my wardrobe. I've gone through my closet and gotten rid of everything I haven't worn in a year or more...If throwing out all these old clothes makes you queasy, don't worry! First of all they're all being donated, of course, and secondly, I own a lot of clothing! I needed the space! I did salvage some pieces that could have promise (I'll be blogging about that experience next time).
Anyway...this will make room for NEW CLOTHES! I've made a Polyvore spread to help myself visualize how I should build my wardrobe with basics.
Now all I need is some money to start building up those foundations...huh. One of the annoying things about being a college student (especially one who is soon to be studying library science) is that you're pretty broke most of the time. No worries. I intend to do some serious thrifting this summer, and a lot of shopping at Marshall's.
In addition to reporting my own ideas and discoveries, I will be blogging about fashion news (the kind I'm interested in anyway) and hopefully even getting in touch with some more experienced fashion gurus who can help me on my way.
Wish me luck!
