TWINZIES IN THE BIG CITY: FIRST SHOOT: THE “BLACK ‘N WHITE” AND COLORFUL TWIN
Okay…so to start off let’s begin our introduction with where we began. Together as twins we come from Kearney, Nebraska. Where’s Nebraska you may ask? Well, just pull out a world map and point to the dead center of the United States and you won’t miss it. For fashion we ventured together to San Diego, California to FIDM (The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising). Since we were young, our mom has been our fashion inspiration. We get the fashion from mom and the artsy side from dad. However, fashion has been something that we have both shared. Together fashion is just not an article of clothing it is made of multiple things that include: “apparel”, “the accessories”, “the shoes”, “the makeup”, “the hair”, and pretty much whatever you put on. When layering on all these pieces we call “layers” it is a natural and a fun thing. Some may consider it over the top or too much, but it’s just something we are passionate about. To us having ten bracelets or five rings on a hand is not big deal. Although, considering this one may gather what is fashion and style exactly? Fashion is a prevailing custom or style, but to have true style as Coco Chanel would say “Fashion fades…only style remains the same.” Looking from a different perspective in reality one must dress in what they think is fabulous, full of glam, fringe, glitter, studs, swirls, or even in simplicity. Style comes in many different forms it goes beyond the runway to one’s own personal aesthetic as well. When looking at us together we are at opposite ends of the spectrum as you will see below (Chelsey is Coco Chanel “Black n’ White Esque” and Courtney is “Marie Antoinette Color-esque”).
Between the two of us when it comes to "less is more," that does not apply. One can always add to an outfit with some creativity. This creativity could be centered on accessories. Adding excessive bracelets, rings, tights, socks, or layering necklaces is a must! Fashion is like a piece of art. The minute details are sometimes the most important. Dimension and detail can always be added by styling extra little pieces to add more to the outfit itself. Some people look past the details, but for us each little detail is very important. One must not miss what could essentially be added to add more glam, rock, and sparkle.
Together, we are embarking on a journey that is scary, but full of fashion. Hopefully
you will join us for the ride... <3 -C
