Celebrating 900 Posts

Hello! Can you believe that this post marks my 900th post?? Because I sure can't! I know that I've said it before but I never imagined that my blog would come along this far. When I started my blog a little over five years ago, I didn't have much direction or sense of what my blog would become. I was 14 years old and thought "hey, maybe this is a good way to start working towards the fashion industry."

I'm forever grateful for making that sort of impulse direction when I did. My blog has grown and taken off over the past few years. Through blogging, I've been presented with several incredible, fashion-related opportunities that I don't think I would have stumbled across otherwise. I've interned for a magazine as well as a boutique, been featured in a national magazine and have worked with countless brands and individuals in the fashion industry.

I also think that blogging prompted me to major in fashion merchandising and chase my dreams of a career in the fashion industry. Blogging has provided me with journalism experience and has enabled me to build the skills such as networking that will be crucial when I'm looking for a job in the fashion industry this upcoming summer.

Here's to many more years of blogging!
