"Fashion means breaking all the rules!" -Genovia Elle

Just thought I would feature some of my work on my own blog, so that all of my followers and viewers can get to know me a little better. My name is Genovia Elle, and I have always been sparked by the creative freedom and indispensable funk of fashion. I like to believe it all originated when I was a little girl and my parents allowed me to dress myself- no matter how mismatched my clothes were. Although I have some horrific pictures from back then (lol), it was my parents who not only instilled this creativity and freedom of style that I have, but also a good sense of self-esteem in knowing that I can feel and look good in anything that I wear. Ironically, I love to play around with and mismatch different colors, textures, and patterns. When people ask me what does fashion mean to me, I reply "Fashion means breaking all the rules!" This is why I love fashion, because I don't feel constrained to follow any fashion rules (though they do exist). I just do me, and I do it from the very core of my being. My twin sister would read this and say that I was getting deep, as she always says lol, but it just gets that deep with me. If you cannot feel good about yourself and what you wear because of some "rules," then don't follow them. I do what makes me feel good, and it works for me.

Upon viewing my pics from this photo shoot, I challenge you to ask yourself what works for you? And is it really working? You gotta let your clothes work for you; you don't work for your clothes!

So check me out ;-)
