I find myself wanting to list a few age-old expressions your parents have probably thrown at you in every inconvenient situation you’ve ever been in. Something along the lines of, “Well, you don’t always get what you want,” or maybe even, “I don’t know what to tell you, life just isn’t fair sometimes.” Regardless of what the ever-infuriating and frustrating slogan may be, its annoyance doesn’t make it any less true.
Winged eyeliner, loose curls, red lipstick, diamonds, slick-back ponytails, pearls: all things I consider timeless and versatile. I haven’t been around for long, but as my fashion evolves, as trends change, I find that these few styles could never lead you astray.
On The Mind of Style’s two year anniversary, we used those timeless and versatile looks to celebrate the evolution of those who are always present on the blog, and to celebrate the authenticity of everyone featured. We wanted our celebration to transcend any fashion barrier, so we paired our looks with a little red velvet, balloons, and champagne!
I’d like to say that I never imagined I’d be writing about my sister, but that would be a lie. From the moment she could scramble words together, everyone knew she was special. I know that word is supposed to be some holy grail, and I reference it like it is one, and I’m not sure what it really means because special is defined as unique, unique means individual, we’re all individuals, therefore we’re all special, but I digress. Truthfully, if you’re ever lucky enough to meet her, I know you’ll feel it.
After a short hiatus comes a big announcement! This past year, The Mind of Style’s mastermind (Rachel) has made a few additions, and I am here to announce myself as the first. My name is Vanessa, for those of you who are familiar with the page you may have spotted me in a few posts, for those of you who are not familiar with the page, well… from now on you should be.

Happy Fourth of July! Just like America’s gift of independence that we celebrate today, I, too, gift to you a long overdue, new blog post on TMOS.
I’ve been dreading the day for a while when I’d feel the need to post this, but I felt the need to post it today. So here it is. (I wrote this April 2016 but have revised it since then to stay current).
Long time, no post!
July 16th is a very special date for me. Today we are celebrating the one year anniversary of The Mind of Style: Continue Reading
Hello everyone! I’m posting something a little different on TMOS. My friends and I decided to have a more creative photoshoot. Here are the results:
I always complained about the nasty, howling winds in the city of London until this Mind of Style shoot. Check out what my friends and I wore on this windy day:
Crisp air, sunlight, and slightly exposed skin. Ah yes, springtime is here in London! Well almost. Check out what my friends and I wore on a slightly warm day: Continue Reading
