From Potato to Beyontato

"Some days I have my potato days when I just... feel like a potato. But, some days, I look in the mirror and feel like I look like I just came out of Beyonce's vagina."
With such a strange unique introduction, I was immediately curious to know how she described her style, or who inspired her. I'm the type of person that's confident about my style and my personality. But unfortunately, I've never woken up in the morning thinking I looked like I came out of Beyonce's vagina. I know- I still have a lot to learn. Hope you enjoy reading about Monica as much as I loved writing about her!
Monica's Style
"I guess you could describe my style as Street Chic.  By wearing a bomber jacket or a coat on top of jeans and a shirt- I feel more chic. Like I truly came out of Beyonce's vagina. As for inspiration, that would definitely be Kylie Jenner. Despite media criticism, Kylie continues to dress and look the way she wants because she's dressing for none other than herself. Fashion shouldn't be to impress others, but to make yourself feel good."
Monica's Story
"In high school, I would dress up in jeans and a shirt, and had no fashion inspiration. Unlike others, what I wore didn't matter to me. But I began to feel out of place for dressing in this simplistic way.  I began to feel slightly paranoid that others were judging me. So, fashion started to matter more. I put more effort into dressing up my outfits through jackets or shoes"
"My clothes definitely convey maturity. Now, I could care less about how others perceive my fashion style. I still like dressing comfortably, so I guess you could say that I still have that casual look. But I think my clothes also say a lot about how I've changed and matured as a person. In high school, I wasn't me. I was quiet. I was bullied. I let it happen and didn't stand up for myself. But in the past few months in college, I no longer care about what others think of me. I've become more mature. The way I dress now makes me feel confident. And in a way, this newfound confidence through fashion has allowed me to be confident in myself. When I'm excited, I'll literally start doing high kicks out of nowhere. When I feel awkward, I make chicken noises or sing with my "Stitch" voice. I'm embracing my inner potato now. Beyonce would be proud of me."
