Dress for a Casual Night Out on a Budget!

Hi everyone, welcome to my very first blog post!

First off, I want to let you know a little bit about me before I start. I am a senior at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan, New York. I study Advertising and Marketing with a huge interest in the beauty and fashion industries. I used to be over weight and I struggled with my weight and skin issues for various parts of my life. I want to share my insight with others because I believe in this mantra, ‘to look good is certainly to feel good.’ I want to empower women and help them to realize that they don’t need to have the best skin or the smallest frame to feel sexy and confident. Learning to utilize the tools we have right in front of us is they best way to achieve what we want, and I’m going to show you how to do it!
