Lately, I have been thinking a lot about what university I would like to go to and what I would like to study there. I know I am only in my first year of college but summer of 2012 is when I need to start looking at universities and believe me I have been heavily researching, not for just universities in this country but ones for America. Yes, my biggest dream that motivates me every single day is that I want to move to America, preferably New York, in a little town. Anyway, back to my dilemma, I have no idea of what to study there, my mind has changed a gazillion times but now I definitely know I want to do to something in the fashion industry. Lately, I have been looking into doing courses in styling and photography, unfortunately, I am not studying photography at A-Level and have no experience at it. However, I am hoping that I could possibly persuade my Dad into buying me a Canon for Christmas, a relatively cheap one to get me started then maybe I could blossom from there. I would love to go into styling as it's a more hands on approach in fashion, imagine working backstage at a Chanel runway show and me, little old me, is behind the set styling all the fabulous models in array of different Chanel clothing or accessories. Wow, I have butterflies just thinking about it. I have no idea where to start with styling, as you have programmes such as polyvore when you can make you own outfits, however, I don't find that very useful as I can never find the items I am looking for. I tend to style some of my friends and recommend them on what they should wear and I am also quite opinionated and judgmental of people's clothing choices in the street, I tend to make mental images of how their outfit should really look, for example what should be added to the outfit such as accessories etc and what should be changed about the outfit. Possibly, just possibly, this could be the path for me!
