My Random Thoughts: A lil Change

So if you haven’t noticed- I’m switching the tone of my blog just a bit. I stopped signing every post with Style Reporter because I was starting to really feel like a reporter and I abandoned those journalistic dreams around sophomore year in college.

Maybe two months ago my BF posed the question to me… "what do you really want out of your blog?" and I finally know what I want… I want to use this blog to document of my fashion journey. Sort of like a fashion diary. Use my blog to help me figure out what I want to do in the enormous industry while sharing with you guys the latest trends I like, how you guys can look fabulous on a budget, how to style certain pieces, etc. I want this blog to be a FASHION blog. Chee's Fashion Blog!

I’m definitely going to be more personal, I want you guys to get to know me… and hopefully I’m interesting enough to attract others to join the reader circle. I want to interact with my readers… answer your questions… post what’s in my fashion mind… what’s hot from my POV… who style I like, what I found surfing the web, where to get certain items, learn about makeup... Shout outs to Keebs... I'm learning alot!!!... etc
I was reading a feature story that Beverly Smith wrote on where she says- everyone wants to be in fashion, wants to be a fashionista, they want to put outfits together, but a lot of these people do not know anything about fashion. It’s important to learn your craft, know the people in the industry, read and research. And that is what I want to use this blog for. I have a lot more learning to do.

I have a great eye, I have been in fashion since I received my working papers- I went from visual merchandiser at the Gap to doing PR for a designer, to working for Tommy Hilfiger doing licensing design, to working at Coach doing design development to where I’m at currently. (Sorry can’t reveal that right now- I'm still in fashion) but now its time I start to use all those skills I’ve acquired and knowleged I've gained to figure out what I want to be. I love this industry soo much I want to do it all- or at least find a space where I can incorporate all my skills.

I want my readers- even if its only 5 people who read Search.Style.Snap…. I want my readers to share this journey with me and I want to inspire yall. I want to hear what you guys have to say- see what you guys are wearing, what trends you like… which ones you don’t….

I love feedback and criticism… we can agree to disagree on a fashion tip… I love a good style debate!

Don’t worry fellas… I'mma try to do more post for you too….

So are you feeling my new approach?



  1. Of course! Who wouldn't appreciate someone sharing their insight to a fashion world we all love?!

    Don't worry, I'm sure there are a LOT more people who read your blog than you think. I read everyday... I just don't comment all the time (or at all, for that matter). I'll try to change that, and give my feedback as it comes.

    But keep up the good work! I look forward to being a witness to your journey :)

  2. I like this direction that you are taking with your blog...My motto is do you and whatever makes you happy :o)
