The Impact of International Fashion

Roommate, becca and I were sitting around last week discussing how travel has changed the way we dress. For me, a trip to Paris when I was seventeen woke me up to fashion. For becca, it was Italy in college. My roommate transformed from a tee and jeans girl to an explosion of quirky cute after a summer in Japan.

I went to Spain and Italy in college, and it changed me to be more girly and like pretty clothes instead of the grunge punk phase I was going through.

I definitely got the taste for cute, delicate and colorful stuff from my 11 years of living in China. I got my simplistic and tomboy side from living in Texas for 6 years.

I never thought about the way I dress until I start reading style blogs, set off my seaofshoes.com, which gives me a taste for edgy stuff, layering and inspired me to start wearing heels.

There you have it. I dress super girly sometimes, tomboyish sometimes, and slightly edgy other times. But no matter what I wear, it's never too tight or too revealing. My conservative Chinese side won't allow it.

My style has always been very girly and prim (think Blair Waldorf), but I've definitely acquired a slight boho vibe after spending seven summers at an artsy/hippie camp in rural Maine. It's funny, I've traveled to Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean, but no place has inspired my style as much as a hippie camp in Maine!
