An Epiphany: Finding My Voice

tumblr photography at charmroyal.com

I won’t lie this post popped in my head as I was dancing around my house with the music blasting.

Right in the middle of One Republic’s Feel Again I realized that I was head over heels in love with myself in that moment. I’ve been a bit lost lately. I keep trying to figure out who I am, what defines me and I am so determined to find my voice.  But as I was belting out the lyrics (water bottle in hand) to Feel Again the search came to an end because who I am, what defines, my voice well that’s all right in front of me. The girl dancing around in her underwear and bra that’s who I am. Dancing, being utterly insane, living that’s what defines me and my voice well I’ve had it all along.

I’m calling this an epiphany because I want everyone to know, if you’re lost and trying to figure out who you are just stop for a second and spend some time with yourself.  You don’t ever really lose who you are, you just forgot to spend time with yourself. Everyday spend twenty minutes with yourself  think, reflect, meditate…whatever makes you happy because that’s who you are.

Style is a direct expression of who you are. When you’re shopping make sure every piece you buy is a piece of you. Have the confidence to wear what ever you want. Don’t let others determine you’re style because your style is you. Remember style is forever and fashion is truly just a season.

That’s all for my philosophical moment today.

A New Year! A Different Fashionique but the Same Dominique

Look to the heavens? Who knows…ice skating Bryant Park 12/30/12

I woke up this morning to two extremely harsh comments posted on my blog by an anonymous  viewer. My first thought was to delete them, but upon second thought I decided to take the harsh comments and start blogging again. Honestly, I love being underestimated and harsh criticism is what drives me to be great! It may be backwards thinking for some, but it works for me.

I’m human so I am no where near perfect. I can’t post everyday and sometimes I might not post for months, but I really do love blogging. It’s hard work, but it’s so satisfying.I’ve been keeping a journal since I was in 5th grade and I don’t write in it daily but it does document most of my life events. I want to get a bit more personal on my blog. Sharing with you my personal life and struggles all while giving you fashion advice and updates.

For along time I have been updating all of you with pure fashion news and this time around I hope to update you with a bit more about me. So I know I haven’t posted since last October and I’ve probably lost most of my followers, but there is nothing wrong with starting over. So here I am starting over for fourth maybe fifth time. Hopefully I can make things a little better this time around.

A Very Sexy Modeling Campaign

Just to let you guys in on a little bit more in my life. Here is the modeling campaign video our fashion club made for modeling auditions at Ithaca College. I am in a fashion club call Hi-Fashion Studios and each semester we put on a huge fashion show. So, this is the campaign to get models to audition for the show. I think it’s pretty good, especially for a bunch of college students. 

The Boyfriend Watch –Another Boyfriend for the Collection

Boyfriend jeans, Boyfriend tees, Boyfriend blazers now’s it’s time to tap into accessories. I introduce to you the Boyfriend Watch. So why do we add the word  boyfriend to it. It’s because the face of the watch is large like a typical men’s watch, but the band is small made for a woman. I first noticed this trend when it popped up in my Charming Charlie’s email. By the way Charming Charlie’s is a cheap girl’s accessory heaven. They’re currently selling boyfriend watches for an affordable price. For those of you who want spend more, then look to brands like Michael Kors and Coach. BF watches come in many colors, but I am currently digging the rose gold even though it looks terrible on my skin tone. Rose gold is perfect for paler skin tones and white gold is better for darker skin tones. I think we should all add another boyfriend to our collection, so hop on the boyfriend watch trend, so you always know what time it is.
