Hey guys and welcome to my blog! My name is Johanna, I am a 23-year-old Jersey Girl born and raised. Ever since I was a little girl I loved the idea of expressing myself, whether it was through fashion, art, or just plain old speaking my mind. That’s where this blog comes in… but before I explain what exactly I want to do on here, I wanted to give you some of my history.
Up until the age of 13 I was a TOTAL tomboy. The worst thing you could have done to me was to put me in a dress, but a friend in the 8th grade completely changed my mind. He introduced me to the world of fashion design. Although I didn’t become a fashion designer, that’s where fashion truly spoke to me. All through high school, I was obsessed with learning how to style a t-shirt (post coming soon) or how to start a good essentials closet (also coming soon). My junior year of high school I discovered that I hate sewing and I couldn’t sketch up a dress, that’s where I realized that I am not fit to be a designer. Instead I realized that I should try jewelry design. I ended up going to the high school program at the Fashion Institute of Technology for jewelry design, which led to me going to the Fashion Institute of Technology for college.
I graduated FIT with an associate’s degree in jewelry design, a bachelor’s degree in International trade and marketing for fashion studies, and a certificate in gemology.
After college, I got a job in a jewelry manufacturing company, I wasn’t happy. I realized that jewelry truly wasn’t my passion like it was when I was younger. After I got a job as a real estate agent’s assistant (this is also my current job), but I also had a job as a personal stylist.
I can truly say I found my calling as a personal stylist, but I want to take it a step further. That’s why I created this blog, I want to teach people how not to get freaked out when having to pick a last-minute going out outfit or teach everyone how to dress their bodies, big, small, and all sizes in between.
There will also be a few travel posts, beauty reviews, hauls of stuff that I have bought over the month, and lastly look books with featuring not only me but, other people with different body shapes. I am making this blog more of a lifestyle blog, but mainly focusing on fashion. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them!
Thank you for reading my introduction. I plan on posting once a week, also make sure to join my mailing list to be notified when there is a new post, as well as follow me on all of my social media platforms!
PS. I will be posting pictures as soon as I return to the states!!!!!
