Long gone are the days where you have to be a certain size, look a certain way, or be a certain age. All of that is old news. I was lucky enough to speak with Mo Zhou, PR and Social Media Coordinator for Vancouver Fashion Week. Mo provided her insights to Vancouver Fashion Week and the hot style trends for fall.
When you think of millennials and fashion, the first thing that may come to mind is big brand names.

In addition, black can easily wash you out and (gasp!) make you appear older and even (insert another gasp here) make you look frumpy.
On Saturday, August 29, I turn 30. Three-oh. Twenty plus ten years. The age in which you are completely responsible for your own actions and can't, in any way, shape, or form, blame it on your "turbulent twenties" or "being young." That's why here, in the spirit of turning 30 and basking in life lessons, I present: 30 things I learned about style over the course of the last 30 years.
