Everyone knew me as the girl who loved Fashion Nova. Most of my clothes came from Fashion Nova. I especially loved their midi dresses. Their clothes are inexpensive, but the quality of material was very poor. Funny thing is, I noticed that and kept buying from there. I believe it was because I liked their prices and the way their dresses fit me. They brought out my curves for sure. I got many compliments on my outfits I had bought from there. I thought I was in fashion heaven, but…something changed.
I was scrolling on instagram and my newsfeed was full of Fashion Nova. I headed to YouTube and all of my suggested videos were about Fashion Nova. Then, I scroll down and see a video by The School Affluence . The video was titled “How Law of Attraction Changed My Life“. I suggest you all check it out NOW! Once I finished watching that video, at that moment, I realized that I wanted my life to be a certain way. I wanted to travel, look fashionable, build a brand for myself and my future. I knew the vision I wanted in reality. The Fashion Nova lifestyle was more of a “hot girl summer” vibe. I wanted Hilton Head. lol I had a love for fashion from a very young age. My designs screamed sophistication, so I knew exactly what I wanted my life to be like. I knew I loved the professional, mature, lady-like fashion, but I had fallen into “I must show my curves”, “These heels are not high enough”, “Is my dress tight enough?” mindset. Although, I knew I looked good on those things, I knew that was not how I wanted to dress for the rest of my life.
I literally deleted all of my photos where I had Fashion Nova clothing on off of my Instagram profile, unfollowed all of their pages, packed up all of the items I had bought from them and decided to sell them. Many were shocked. I got so many questions such as “What happened?”, or “Why don’t you like them anymore?”. I answered with my first post stepping into my new and IMPROVED wardrobe captioned “Not the first. not the last”.
Michael Kors and Steve Madden started me on my journey to looking more mature. I went shopping the next day. I stopped by Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, J.Crew and others. I was determined to rebrand myself. I didn’t care about who could see my assets. I’m now focused on my assets. Bet you didn’t catch that. I need to look the part for what I want to attract. I am demanding respect and professionalism. Fashion Nova was not going to give me that.
I hope you all understand what I’m talking about here. – Transitioning into a mature woman.
I thank you for reading! Much Love!
