The Fashion Reign

Reign's Style_Not So Neutrals

I don’t know a thing about fashion good thing I was able to catch up with Reign (love the name) to ask her a few questions and get some fashion questions answered. 

1. How did you get into fashion? Was it something that was always the focal point of your life?

Fashion has always been a huge part of my life in one way or another.  As a child, it was something that I desired, especially since we didn’t have much money for new clothes, and my mom wasn’t really into shopping.  I didn’t let that stop me, as I used magazines and TV as a way to keep up with fashion and luckily my Mema (grandma) was very much into fashion.  Some of my fondest memories as a child were spending hours upon hours shopping with her.  She was the most fashionable lady that I knew, and going to the mall to find “pretty clothes” was always something special that we shared.  She taught me how to walk in heels, how to pair separates to make a statement and the importance of having a pretty handbag or clutch to complete your look.

2. How did you come up with your name The Fashion Reign?

When I met my husband, he initially thought that I had introduced myself as Reign.  To his defense, we were in a noisy environment, so I happily accepted my new found nickname.  Family members and friends gave me the nickname “Fashion Queen” back in High School.  I simply put these two together, and that’s how you have The Fashion Reign.

 3. What does fashion mean to you in your own words?

Fashion is one’s opportunity to make a statement; its how we show the world who we are without ever having to say a word.  Fashion is not only about the clothes, shoes and hair.  It is showing your confidence and having high self esteem…acceptance of who and what you are, and how you carry yourself.

 4. Do you have to have a lot of money to look good?

No, I am truly the fashionista on a budget.  I am a sucker for sales and have no problem thrifting or sifting through racks upon racks of clothing.  Working in the fashion industry, I’ve had the opportunity to learn the true value of a garment, and the definition of the word “markup” is no joke!  Unfortunately, knowing this bit of information sometimes makes it hard for me to spend a certain amount of money if the quality is not right.

 5. Can you give us your favorite place to shop that’s unique and different from regular places? (Regular places being TJMaxx, marhsalls, Kohls, Macy, etc)

My favorite place to shop right now would be Boohoo (www.boohoo.com [1]).  I’m really into to shopping online, as that’s where you’ll find some of the most unique pieces at a fraction of the cost!

 6. What’s one thing in life that you have learned the hard way?

That it does no one any good for you to worry about what the next man (or woman) thinks of you.  Yes, its a great thing to be able to please those that mean the most to you.  However, at the end of the day it is more important that you are taking the time to live for YOU…enjoying life to the fullest.  This can translate into all facets of life.  I am committed to living as happy and worry free of a life as I possibly can, making sure to have tons of fun as I go along.
