I love clothes. I say clothes rather than "fashion" because I wouldn't necessarily consider myself a trend setter or follower. I like to build and wear outfits based on timeless pieces that will never go out of style and could potentially be worn no matter what age you are rather than changing my wardrobe every few months to follow the latest craze. After I've got the basics (a solid pair of jeans, a blazer, etc) then I can jazz it up with trendier pieces of interest (a rocking pair of heels, colorful jewelry, or an awesome statement bag).
I've never bought into the idea that being "trendy" means being "fashionable". Wear clothes that fit your body and your personality and you'll always look amazing, regardless of weather the color or style is "in season".
