Wearing sneakers is a whole new world for me. There was a point in time where I didn't even own them. But I have come back around and I appreciate them now. 

I used to think that I had to fit inside of a box. I am a passionate and intense person when it comes to the things that I like and love and that goes for my clothes as well. I thought that my style had to be defined by certain things. I so deeply admire the people who have a classic style that they commit to but that is not in my personality to do that. I love too many things and I want to wear too many things. Because what I love and how I dress go hand in hand. I've dabbled with being minimalist, only wearing black and white for half a semester at school, I was a skater (I've always loved skateboarders), I went extreme hippy, I was Penny Lane, I was Edie Sedgwick, Keith Richards, Marianne Faithfull, Ginger Rogers, I was that Victorian child in a painting my grandmother had on her wall when I was a child... I tried it all. But then I realized that I could blend all of these things and I didn't have to box myself in to one particular era or style. All I had to do was be me. And now it is more fun. For a long time I kept asking myself where do I fit? With everything, not just my style but in life. And I met a really wise man and he told me stop asking myself that...I already fit and I always have. And so do you. Don't compromise yourself. You don't have to change who you are to fit in.
