“Why did you chose Fashion Merchandising, why did you chose theater?” Questions I hear quite frequently from people wanting to know the reason behind my two very creative major choices. Well personally I’d like to think that my majors chose me. I say this because since I was a small child these two things just seemed so right for me. At the age of three I knew I wanted to be inside of the TV, it felt like when I finally got to go to performing arts school that this is what I needed in my life to make me feel whole. When it comes to fashion I felt that same feeling, I wanted to create, sell, style, any and everything I could possibly think of in the fashion world. All in all I could never see myself doing anything but staying in these two fields, they make who I am and I am completely dedicated to making lasting careers out of the majors I have chosen. I feel amazingly blessed that I can peruse my two loves at the awesome university we call Fontbonne!
What does it truly mean to dress for success? Now that I am talking an interpersonal communication class I get to explore what this truly means. When it comes to meeting people in regular social interactions to serious job interviews, your clothes are always communicating something. Are you trying to show you are a young professional or and underachiever. In some situations clothing can truly make or break you. The way I feel about dressing for success is that you should always dress like you have something important to do. But then again I could be a little bias because I am so into fashion, hence my major being Fashion Merchandising. In the end I just want to people to understand that sometimes it does matter what your wearing. So for that important job interview or if you just want to be sharp that day, Dress for Success!
