I’m not that girl who wants what everyone else has; rather, I’m the opposite. I pride myself in finding the different and the unique, in discovering extraordinary new fashion talent or putting together pieces in fresh ways. I want what no one else has.
For my birthday this year, I asked my aunt, who works as a painter, if she would be willing to customize a pair of shoes for me under the one condition that they be colorful. She agreed. One month later, I received a custom painted pair of white Keds in the mail from her, and words couldn’t explain my joy. They’re truly special, and I’m the only one in the world who has them.
Fashion is a wonderful way to express yourself and let your creativity have total freedom. Every time I wear these shoes, I’m showcasing the fantastic talent of my dear relative. Not only am I wearing a work of art, but this is a pair of shoes with sentimental value, because they were designed for me by someone I love.
