The purpose of this blog is pretty simple. I’m just combining my two favorite topics, books and fashion. I already have a book review blog called endlessbindings.com where I have been reviewing YA paranormal fantasy books. After reading those books steadily for several years I realized how full of cliches they were becoming so I wrote my own, called Words Once Spoken that will be out digitally October 1st, 2013. More information in regards to that book and my writing journey is available on the other blog.
This blog will cover whatever I read (and won’t be a review as much as my opinion/experience whilst reading it) and fashion. I love fashion as an art form and a way to express oneself, but I think the fashion industry these days is sorely missing the boat on the purpose behind it. I spent about two years studying the fashion industry in preparation for a fashion design and merchandising degree, and I’ve worked in the retail industry for over 10 years. Through this I have seen such a disconnect between what designers and fashion magazines dictate as the popular trend and what actually works in reality. The majority of what they perpetuate as “trendy” and attempt to convince consumers to spend their hard earned money on is ridiculous.
I would love to hear back from others as to what they think on the subjects I post as well.
