A Touch of Home Life: Part 2

Shoes-Simply Vera

Who are The Tailored Two?

In part two of home life, I will be talking about myself, Melissa.

 My story starts at a small town in New Jersey, where I have lived all my life.  My small town is not very fashion savvy to say the least, however my oldest sister, sparked my interest in fashion. I really stared to pay attention to fashion magazines and began sewing basic skirts and dresses to suit the trends.

I love my family, and friends more than anything.  They keep me sane and support me, even when I loose faith in myself.

This summer I spent time trying to embrace life I went kayaking, fishing, biking, and spent quality time with my sisters and grandmother cooking in the kitchen. I have also landed an internship with Cache, which I commute into the city for everyday.  I am currently still with them and learning so much!

Now I am a junior at the Fashion Institute of Technology, studying fashion design.  It has been a rough road, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.  Life is an open book, and the best chapters are yet to come!

A Touch of Home Life: Part 1

Recently Melissa and I were talking blog talk. Since we are college roommates, during the summer we are not together and we have been trying to think of creative ways to pull our posts together even being 3 hours apart. That's when we realized, you have no idea who we really are!

So who are we?

In part one I will be talking about me, Aubrey.

 My story is mainly based in little old Lancaster County, PA or as most people might call it, Amish Country (note the never ending corn in the photo above). Needless to say, my fashion sense did not come from here. I just couldn't find a way to rock an Amish bonnet.

My family and friends are the most important thing in my life. The pretty girl in the second photo is my sister, Nikki. She is my best friend, confident, and partner in crime. I have no idea what I would do without her; I am the luckiest. This year we had a new addition to our family, Eva, a foreign exchange student from Italy. Currently, my sister is enjoying all the gelato and pizza in the world while visiting her. Rough summer, huh? 

My loving and supportive family led me to where I am in life today. They believed in my crazy artistic and fashion passion. I have been drawing ever since I can remember and started sewing what I can only assume were meant to be outfits for my American girl dolls as soon as I could figure out how. In high school, while everyone else was trying to go to school for steady jobs I had my mind set on fashion. Now I am in my final year at Fashion Institute and cannot wait to see what happens from here!
