About Me

Hi, I'm Sophie!
I am a fashion hungry student from the Pacific Northwest.
If you asked me to choose I would have fashion as my main course and beauty as my sides.
I have a classic and feminine sense of style, with a sprinkling of edgy here and there.
Recently, I began making YouTube videos about my style, beauty products and tutorials, and DIY projects.
I've spent a week the past two summers (2011-2012) taking workshops at the Fashion Institute of Technology. They've been the best experiences of my life so far.
I hate to admit it, but I spend a large quantity of my free time on the internet. Blogs, YouTube, and social networking sites are my daily haunts.
I've been listening to a lot of rap music lately, but if you asked me what my favorite kind of music is I would say alternative. Bon Iver, City and Colour, Ed Sheeran, are among my favorites. I despise country.
If I'm feeling lovesick I listen to Adele's first album, 19.
I'm stuck in a small town that is good for nothing other than being on a postcard.
I dream of New York City.
I don't own any sweatpants. "Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants." -Karl Lagerfeld
I'm a vegetarian.

Here are some of my Fashion PhiloSophie's:

  1. Quality is more important than quantity. That means investing in a $100 dress that is good quality is much better than buying four poor quality dresses for $25 each.
  2. Have the basics. These include skinny jeans, white t-shirts (I have at least 5), black t-shirts, black leggings, a jean jacket, a motorcycle jacket, ballet flats, a black handbag, a neutral handbag... Look to Nina Garcia's The 100 for more.
  3. Always overdress. Being dressed up will look more professional and it will boost your confidence.
  4. Stay connected. Keep up on the latest trends via social networking sites, magazines, apps, etc.
  5. Be inspired. If I'm ever stuck on what to wear I browse through lookbook.nu for ideas.
  6. Accessories are a must. If you don't have accessories, your outfit isn't complete.
  7. Educate yourself. Knowing the history or even just a little background information about a brand makes you appreciate it that much more.
  8. Always keep some mad money. You never know when you're going to find something that you really have to have.
  9. Make a list. Before going shopping make a list of the things you need and the things you want. You should purchase things to a 2:1 ratio of the two lists. Get the things you need first, then what you want.
  10. Have a style icon (or 10). Find some people that you can look to for style inspiration or advice for any occasion.
The list could go on, but I'll stop it at 10 for now.
