Mira’s Closet: 9/2/13 : Cultural

MClosetMira’s no fashionista, but she definitely has her own sense of style…
And now here’s an update on just that.

First an observation: Fashion is much more cultural then I realized. People all over the world are being influenced by others through the World Wide Web, but some traditions just never seem to fade away and I like it (most of the time). Not all stereotypes are bad, some are simply representative of a culture. Not all women in the “south” of the plains region of the U.S. have big hair, but a lot of them do. Not all black women (African American, if you care to be P.C.) wear big hoop earrings, but a lot do. I personally adore my hoop earrings (of a modest size). Everyday fashion becomes more and more an artistic expression of one ‘s personality, culture, and out look on life. I love it.

Now here are some style tips from


my own personal fashion guru, trainer, and my physical inspiration for Mira.
