I never really paid attention to fashion growing up, but since moving to New York, I've seen so many trends come and go. I'm always hesitant to give in to current trends because I know, eventually, they'll disappear. Right now, I'm on the hunt for a great pair of jeans and a white button-down shirt: two things I know that will always be part of a woman's wardrobe.

I have always believed in the quality over quantity shopping. However, it is hard to resist the trendy and hot items of the season. I try to think if the trend works for me or if I'm just buying it because its trendy. I think a level of maturity and self-confidence comes with aging that can definitely affect your wardrobe. Age is just a # but at 29 I definitely felt this was relevant to me.

I'm in my last months of 20's and I'm totally agree "wear whatever the hell you want". If you like it and you feel comfortable, wear it!

I agree with the "lot more money" part. In college it was more about sales and cheap clothes rather than what looks fashionable. Now I can afford what I want and it feels awesome.. :)

I turned 25 in May. I still wear what I want to wear, but the thought plagues me that one day I will have to grow up, so to say, and change my wardrobe accordingly. I hate the idea that getting older means dressing in frumpy, boring clothes to a lot of people. No way. I am going to wear what makes me feel good. Nice article. Let's all eat fashion icecream for dinner.

Late 20's... and that's aging? BAH! What about for chicks like me pushing 40???

Haha thanks for actually reading the article instead of assuming that I'm Anna Del Russo ;). I didn't mean this specific to any age and I think it applies to those pushing numbers greater than my own. Aging is a perpetual state, and we're all in it.

Personally not a fan of her style, but I just love her love for fashion. She's quite passionate.

"...this experiment that is the art of dressing." I love that! My first legit fashion purchase was when I was 12 or 13 at Gadzooks and it too was a fuzzy sweater, in bright red; Sadly, it's gone now, but I'll never forget it. Love this article! It validates my late-twenty-something love affair with fashion. xo
