After graduating The Fashion Institute of Technology (many moons ago), I know fashion is completely subjective. I love that about it. You can make it all your own.

Fashion can give you confidence to take on the world and kick some major a$$. The possibilities are endless. 1. Pink Crystal Flower Earrings by Mei Faith Studio 2.
