And THIS is why I want to go into fashion.

All I know is that from a very young age, I had an interest in color, pattern, texture, technique, beauty and style. The possibilities of what those words could mean was endless and that excited me.
Recently one of my all time favorite blogs, Advanced Style (a blog dedicated to only the most stylish of senior citizens), teamed up with to produce this amazing short video.

  1. I LOVE THESE LADIES!!! They make me want to go out and buy something crazy just because I like it! Julia, that will be you one day…looking smokin hot no matter how old you are!
