I'm not necessarily talking about re-emerging trends here. I'm thinking about fun memories that, in retrospect, kinda make it seem like you and Fashion were destined to be together.
I've always taken clothing very seriously - I can't remember a time when I flat-out didn't care what I was wearing. Even before I started Kindergarten, I'd wake up before anyone else in my house, and I remember I'd always pull out my favorite outfits to watch Jem or She-Ra. It simply would not do to sit in my pajamas while they went off and saved the universe!
I also remember having a very heated conversation with my dad about pattern mixing! I had to be 4-5, and I'd emptied all my drawers looking for a top and pair of shorts that "matched." Poor Dad had a helluva time trying to convince me that it was okay to wear plaid with stripes. "It's looks pretty cool," he said. "It's fun to be different." At the time, I thought he was patronizing me to get me dressed faster, but now I know that he was onto something. :)
Where did you pick up fashion tips along the way? Were you always interested in clothes, or do you have a fun story about what piqued your interest? ... anyone else dress for the television?? o_0
