Clogs first came around in Scandinavia and the Netherlands during the middle ages. They were made from willow wood for warmth and protection. By 1830, clogs became popular in the British working force and were also being used through out Europe and the United States to make rhythms to dance along too. By the early 1900's they still haven't gained much popularity outside Netherlands, Sweden, and the working force. Around the 1960's the emerging hippies were starting to spread the new trend around the United States, thus making them popular through out the rest of the world as well. Today, the clog was rediscovered when Karl Lagerfeld designed a line that was showcased in the 2010 Chanel runway show. Now stores everywhere from Nordstroms to Forever21 are selling the item. We even see certain stores devoted to only selling the clog, such as No. 6, a store in New York City as well as Clog Factory downtown Seattle.
Here are a few of my favorites in stores today:
3. Diane Von Furstenburg, $175
4. Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony, $380
5. Jeffrey Campbell, $66
6. Miu Miu, $495
7. Opening Ceremony, $395
8. 3.1 Phillip Lim, $278
9. Asos, $95

What is it about fashion that interests me so much? I really don’t know how to answer that question. I have heard that people who are good at math and science are usually good at art. I enjoy math and have been trying different things through out my childhood to find the art activity that is my calling. I have yet to find it. Maybe its fashion? It could be.
Today I was sitting at the lunch table and realized that I had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up. This is a pretty scary thought, especially because I’m leaving for college in seven months. I asked the people around me what they see me doing after college. Every one of them said “something in fashion” without a single hesitation. I have been debating on getting a degree in fashion for quite some time, although I know it can’t be a very stable career. But if you make it- you make it big.
What if I’m no good at fashion? What if I completely fail? This is going to be my first start. I started this blog as a school project, being interested in clothes and shopping, thinking I could never break into the fashion industry. As I search more and more fashion blogs I realize that fashion is what you make it. You’re only bad if you don’t believe in yourself. Since it’s an industry in the arts, you are allowed to do what you want.
After having this realization I decided to make a pact with myself. I am going to make my blog better and do my best to start a career with my favorite hobby; fashion. I think my blog posts were so blah before because I didn’t have faith in myself. But this is slowly changing. It may take a few months before my posts are interesting to read but who cares? At least I will have something fun to do in my spare time and a place to vent about all the trends I’m in love with (all my friends are tired of it!).
ps. promise a real update later today or tomorrow!

I love the idea of having a reversible denim and Bluelab has finally done it. It took designer Carl Jones a considerable amount of research and testing but he made it work. Each pair is cut from one piece of denim avoiding any funky seams. Each pair has a darker wash for more sophisticated styles and a lighter wash for more of an everyday use. They run around $158 unless you want leather, which runs around $208. These are a must for light packers and anyone on the go who wants to change their wardrobe with just a switch around. You can find each pair here.

I did nothing with my hair today but thought my loyal followers deserved an outfit post. It has been a while since I have done a good update (sorry about that...). We decided to take the dogs to the beach but there wasnt any sun today! It was really cold so we didn't end up staying long. I recommend never wearing a white blazer to the beach. It was a task keeping mine clean. I had a good day never the less.

He grew up in the northwest area and attended the same high school I do now. (!!!) After graduating he applied to Parson's School of Design and was accepted. He studied there under the wing of famous designers such as Marc Jacobs. After graduating from Parson's in 2004 he got a job working for J.Crew. He launched his first line in 2007. Since then he has been known on the runway for his color, texture, and print combination's. You can find his current collection here.
