I'm Famous!

No, not really. But, I was honored to be featured as a "Looks on Campus" look on CollegeFashion.
My friend Mindy recently became one of the writers for the "Looks on Campus" section and asked me to be her first interview! It was pretty surreal once the feature came out since I wasn't expecting such feedback or notice. Mindy did a great job making me look wayyy better than I am in real life and her questions were challenging. I struggled with some of the questions, but hey, I'm not used to being interviewed! Especially when it comes to style.

Fashion is a great interest of mine, but categorizing my personal style is impossible. In the article, I described my style as being grandma-esque and I guess in a sense, that's as accurate as I could have been.
I dig: florals, buttons downs, my "stomping boots", cardigans, and scarves.
That's my usual uniform, but I'm pretty all over the place. Some days, you'd think all I listened to was random European rock or Nirvana from my grunge attire, but today I'm looking pretty put together with a button down and floral shorts.

Never too fancy, never too casual.
The only advice I want to reiterate is to make sure that you feel good in the outfit you're wearing out. It doesn't matter what others think. really, it doesn't. As long as you think you look fabulous, your confidence and attitude will follow. Just sayin'!

So here it is, my claim to fame: Looks On Campu - Diane

Infinite wisdom for my generation

“Look at you. You’re young. And you’re scared. Why are you so scared? Stop being paralyzed. Stop swallowing your words. Stop caring what other people think. Wear what you want. Say what you want. Listen to the music you want to listen to. Play it loud as fuck and dance to it. Go out for a drive at midnight and forget that you have school the next day. Stop waiting for Friday. Live now. Do it now. Take risks. Tell secrets. This life is yours. When are you going to realize that you can do whatever you want?”

Now, to put this into effect.
