Flashback to May 1994. I didn’t want any dolls or a bike. All I wanted for my communion was that beautiful pink flower dress that I had seen in the shop window of a local boutique. I wore it for weeks, even months.
Fast forward to more than 20 years later, my wardrobe has grown considerably, but I’m still that little girl who’s stuck on color, prints and pink. It’s often all I need to make a grey day turn bright. It takes some confidence to match a printed bottom with a different printed top but it’s totally worth it for the compliments and attention.
For some, clothes are just clothes but, for me, they are special, magic and fun and make you stand out of a crowd. Every time has its fashion and trends and my style has evolved, but the acid brights and quirky prints will always be the highlight of my outfit. They make me happy and who I am!
