Getting off the fence is all about making decisions, taking action and committing to your decisions in life. I was on the fence not one year ago, when I knew I loved and had an eye for fashion (I studied Fashion Design at FIT and Parsons), had a real knack for writing (I had seen the magazine world at work with a stint at W Magazine), but wasn’t quite sure how to marry these two talents.
Then a light bulb went off… I could find a way to make these two worlds of mine collide. All my years of experience could come together online, more specifically, in a style blog. I knew that if I just took action and committed to my passion, something good would come of it. And I can tell you, it has.
I have since become a stylist, a social media consultant, a fashion feature writer for Maxim Canada, and the official style blogger for LG Fashion Week, Beauty by L’Oreal Paris (the second largest fashion week in North America!) I get to share my views on fashion with the world. So, in effect, my own getting off the fence about writing about style, in turn helps other ladies off the fence about style… talk about a gratifying cycle.
