I have got a guest post for you from the lovely Evie from http://mylittlelifeoffashion.wordpress.com/ Who is a 15 year old blogger like me!
So here it is!
If i'm being completely honest, which i am, when i was first approached with this question there was no key event that stood out in my mind. It was then that i realised that without really noticing, I've gone from a young child who hated everything about fancy new clothes (especially dresses, EW!) to a teenage girl who is never out of a shop and dreams of the day when she can be responsible for the front cover of vogue. I think there will always be that one moment in every little girls life when she is dawdling behind her mum in a shop and she sees something and thinks "oooh I'd like to wear that!". For me that point come a little later than it does for some little girls however from that point on any opportunity to hit the shops or glance through a fashion magazine would not be turned down. When i got a little older i developed a habit of buying loads of the same type of clothes just because they were in fashion. Don't kid yourself, you've been there too! One summer i saw so many girls were sleeveless tops that i would probably buy a new one (or maybe two) every week and by the time i went away on holiday i literally only had about 12 sleeveless tops and nothing else! I'm sure you're now remembering a time when all you wore were ballet pumps or when you had a crazy obsession with shoe string vests, yeah? Well, that's fashion. It's about living in the moment and enjoying the trend. BUT, fashion isn't all about following the trend, or else we'd all look the same, except having different eye colours. No i'd say that was just 20%. What i'm trying to say is that realising you have a love of fashion can often come from the desire to express your self and that is why I love fashion.
