i am colorful . i am energized . i am inspired .
I’m versatile when it comes to what I wear. I truly feel most comfortable in street styled clothing. Of course, I got stares of my shirt being half in half out but I am confident whenever I step anywhere past my mailbox. I don’t care if I’m in second-hand goods. Regardless, of the millions I plan to make in the future my love for the thrift shop won’t ever die.
BLONDE MOMENT: The earliest known thrift/”charity” shop was in 1899 selling goods that were made by blind people to raise money. It’s obviously more popular now for different reasons such as, for those who are frugal, environmentalist, or fashionistas like myself on a hunt for one of kind items.
The Name: The Blonde Historian, just… came to me. I have my Bachelors degree from THE University of Florida in History. I took courses that were fascinating yet complex as Politics and violence in Africa since 1800, the transformation of capitalism, medieval Germany, the Holocaust, to Salem witch trials of 1692. I love to read, research and apprehend the question of who, what, when, where, why?
I’m a woman of many hats yet the career path I’ve chosen to pursue is a personal stylist. Perfecting my craft is my priority. In my humble opinion, I’m talented with having a keen eye for fashion. As Will Smith said, “Talent you have naturally. Skill is only developed by hours and hours and hours of beating on your craft.” My head has been in the books exploring the origin of fashion history. My mind goes 0-100, REAL QUICK. I’m infatuated with how fashion lives in cycles. For example, in recent months we’ve heard the catchy phrase “what’s a waist” coined by entrepreneur premadonna. The corset is back in style but the corset was originally created in the 16th century. I love how clothes continue to evolve. My hunger for fashion in me doesn’t stop. We are a fortunate generation to literally obtain information at our fingertips. Thank you Larry Page and Sergey Brin for creating GOOGLE!
All in all, my blog name speaks for itself being I am blonde and I have a strong passion for history. I’m here to share fashion history facts, style tips, motivate you and share my personal style/feelings. I want to feed your mind because knowledge is power. Our men and women need to feel encouraged about who they are on the inside, not torn down for not looking like an unrealistic ideal of beauty.
If I can have any impact, I want women to feel good about themselves and have fun with fashion- Michelle Obama.
