I’m Abby, an 18 year old addicted to the exciting world of fashion. Fashion is my main passion but modeling is a close second, writing being a third, so that’s the formula that created this here blog. All my “photoshoots” are shot with a Lumix FZ40 but I’m hoping to upgrade soon. I call my style Urban Glam, which I think is self-explanatory if you know anything about glam and/or urban fashion. I’m the hybrid of these two beauties. My favorite store to buy from is definitely nastygal.com, I’m totally addicted to that kind of adventurous style.
I’m currently signed with a talent agency which I hope broadens my modeling opportunities, as well as I’m taking a class on Fashion Industry Essentials which I hope broadens my fashion industry talent/opportunities. I start studying Fashion & Marketing in January at the Art Institute of Seattle!
Shopping isn’t always impulsive, remorse-bringing or mindless. To me, shopping is a skill. With a love and fascination for it for as long as I can remember, I’ve gotten pretty good at the skill, as good as a middle class person can. Hours of research, knowledge and decisions creates a sort of happiness for me that I haven’t found in anything else. If you have that passion for shopping, you’re in the right place.
The kinds of fashion/photoshoots/posts that I like to do: I like to do a variety of posts. Like classic Event-Shoots, where I photoshoot the outfit I’m wearing to a certain event (like a concert or birthday dinner or something). I also like to collaborate and do Duo-Shoots which I hope to do more of; that’s when I take a friend and style both of us and then photoshoot that. There’s an alternate version of that, where I call an Abby-Esque Shoot which is where I take a friends clothes plus my clothes and observe their regular fashion, and then make an outfit that’s very Abby-esque but it’s on them and it focuses around their daily life, what they like, what they usually wear, what they wish they could wear etc. I also d0 Shopping-Shoots which are my most common and definitely my favorite. Whenever I order a few things from Nasty Gal or somewhere, I love to post all the new outfits I created with the stuff. I also like to Recycle-Shoot where I take clothes that I already have and come up with a fresh new outfit that I’ve never worn before, and these shoots are usually born from boredom and don’t have anything currently happening to really post about. And lastly, I do this thing where anyone can give me one article of clothing or something, and my challenge is to take it (no matter what it is) and make an Abby-esque outfit; sometimes I categorize these as Abby-esque but other times I like to call them my Challenge-Shoots because a lot of times people will give me something that is SO not me, but I have to use all my clothes and accessories to incorporate it into an outfit that prominently displays the un-Abby-like object. Lots of fun stuff on here, all this and more.
