Fashionable First Steps.

So I think I just wrote like ten different introductions and deleted every single one of them. I have Beyoncé playing in the background so I can get my creative and world-conquering thoughts flowing. I think it's working because I'm actually typing in complete sentences now. 

My name is Maria and this blog is the start of what I hope will be a career in fashion. 

I'll be completely honest, I only just had an epiphany last summer about what I wanted to do. I'm studying Marketing and Russian and I'm happy with what I'm learning but I don't feel like it's enough. I've loved to dress up for as long as I can remember and I love creative writing so I figured why not combine the two? 

Expressing myself through my clothing has been a way for me to grow my self-confidence. When I was younger and I heard fashion, the first image that would pop into my mind was of a tall size two model -someone who I would never look like. I used to get upset that I couldn't look like a runway model but I've learned to own my look and I love seeing others - whether a size two or a size twenty-two - doing the same thing.

So, here I am. I'm so excited to get this blog up and running because it'll give me a platform to do something I absolutely love - express myself through my appearance. 

Right now I kinda just feel like I'm talking to myself so any comments or questions are welcome! I appreciate any and all of you who take time out of your day to take a look at my blog. 

Make good choices (thanks for this line Katie :D),
