In a fashion forward world, I’m your average, instinct-driven dilettante. Which leads me to question: how do those in the know know what they know, you know? Is it nature? Nurture? Both? For those of us lacking in fashion DNA, stylistic inclinations must be rooted somehow in life experience. It seems that the issue of style, left unexamined, crystallizes of its own accord during formative periods of our lives. We start down a path and, unless knocked off our feet or guided elsewhere, we remain on that path indefinitely.
