MEET THE WRITER: Here's To The Red, White And Blue!

December 19, 2012

   Hola Fashionistas! In light of the tragic events that have occurred lately I think we are all in need of a  little patriotism. Hail to the Red, White and Blue! 
  With punches of red, I have decided to formally introduce myself to all of my readers this week. My name is Alicia Gonzalez and I am a Sophomore at the Savannah College of Art and Design. I am studying Fashion Marketing and Marketing and have had a LOVE for Fashion since I could remember. To me, fashion isn't just about material things, it's a way of expressing who you are visually. You can translate moods and historic moments through little treasures that can last a lifetime.
   I grew up in the small town of Gorham, Maine and wasn't exposed to fashion in the same way city kids were. I had to reach far and wide to expose myself to the world of fashion. VOGUE was always an outlet for me. When I graduated High School, I decided to enlist into the U.S.Army. I served for six years as in Information Technology Specialist, which is just a fancy way of saying that I worked on computer networks. After six years of serving, I decided it was time to get out and pursue my dreams of working in the Fashion Industry. 
   Today, I am sporting my tribute colors of red, white, and blue. I think every Fashionista should add a piece of fur (faux, of course) to their wardrobe. I love shopping local boutiques and finding unique pieces. I found my blue ink-blotched pants at Custard in Savannah, Ga. I loved these high-waisted pants at first sight because you can dress them up for a buttoned up look or down for a causal bohemian vibe. I've accented my outfit with a cherry red Dooney and Bourke clutch. I picked this up years ago because of the gold encrusted lion's head on the front, it catches my eye every time. I always try to bring unique pieces into my wardrobe that can easily transition from one outfit to the next. I think it's important to have versatility in all aspects of your attire. When looking for something similar, check out this Michael Kors clutch, it will definitely suit your fancy. Bracelets, bracelets and more bracelets is a fun way to frost off this look. I believe the more layers of bracelets the better. Pick colors that will play off of your outfit well. In this case, I decided to go with gold, cream and blue colors. A couple of these cluster link bracelets by Allen Schwartz would have matched my look too. 
   In retrospect to everything that has been happening in our country, live each day to the fullest and have fun with your wardrobe. Take chances and pursue your dreams to the fullest. Thank you to all my readers for your support. 

Tip: When picking new pieces for your wardrobe, pick colors that can easily be translated to other outfits. When wanting a pop of color, try a cherry red clutch like I'm wearing and pick a style that can easily be dressed up or down. 

Fashion Always,
Alicia G.
