Basically, I had no interest whatsoever in fashion until the end of the summer before my freshman year of high school. Once I learned to wear things other than maxi skirts and sweatshirts(yes, I looked like a garbage bag for three years straight), I got interested in trying to find ways to learn how other people dress, so I could improve on my own.
To this day, though, I still carry a few former traits. I will only wear skirts - and they must cover my knees - and I keep my elbows covered. In addition, I wear a lot of dark colors.
