Welcome to my blog! I've yet to acquire my camera I plan to use for outfit photos; so instead you all get an introduction from yours truly.
So... here we go - My name's Ciara Toothman. I'm a junior in high school and that makes me 16 years old. I do very well in school so I have a lot of time to pursue outside interests - my main one, being fashion. I'm a firm believer in shopping vintage/thrift stores as much as possible. I'd say 80% of my wardrobe comes from a thrift store, family member's closet (Hi mom!), or eBay.
My personal style is very eclectic. I appreciate trends, but am not dictated by them. I know what I like and tend to stick to my own personal style. However, living in rural West Virginia, I have grown accustomed to holding back on some of my "crazier" fashion choices. I hope to loose some of my self-consciousness by becoming connected to a larger fashion community through this blog.
I have been reading fashion blogs for many years now, but have been wary of starting my own blog. Hopefully in the coming months I'll grow more comfortable both in front of the camera and behind the scenes working with the HTML of this blog.
I am transitioning from an unaware teenager into one cognizant of the many issues in my country (United States) and world. Fashion bloggers like Bebe Zeva of Fated to Be Hated and Madeline Pendleton of JeanGreige have opened my eyes to issues like feminism (which really shouldn't be an issue - obviously women and men deserve equal treatment), xenophobia, and cultural appropriation. While this blog is first and foremost a blog documenting my ongoing adventures in fashion, I hope to incorporate topics relevant to today's society, as well.
I am a novice to photography, modeling, writing, and editing. So please bare with me during the next few months as I fine tune my skills. I am very excited about joining the creative world of fashion blogging. Please feel free to send me any suggestions you have! You can reach me at CiaraJToothman@gmail.com. Thanks for stopping by! Au revior!
