Hi I'm Briana!

Hi Everyone!
My name is Briana Stiles. I'm currently a junior at the Fashion Institute of Technology where I am studying Fashion Merchandising Management. I am infatuated with fashion and can't imagine studying anything else. No other major allows students to write a paper on a store's visual merchandising or to do a project on forecasted trends for Fall 2012. It's pretty cool to say the least. It's also practical. I can honestly say that most of what I am learning will be applied to my future career. Practicality is also why I've decided to write this blog. Though I attend fashion school or am a "fashionista" as my sister puts it, I'm still a college kid which means I don't have much money. I often times find myself asking, "should I spend money on dinner tonight or save money so I can buy those shoes I want." If you're reading this Mom most of the time I choose dinner....most of the time ;). I like to be fashionable, but practical. I'm not into wearing uncomfortable clothing or clothing that is so expensive that I won't be able to eat dinner for a week. This blog will show you how to dress like a million bucks, but won't cost you anywhere near that amount. I can't wait to get started posting and sharing my knowledge of fashion with you all! :)
