Small Town Girl, Big City Fashion

by Erin Flynn

I grew up in a small town in Indiana of about 1,000 people. This was a place where the Town Marshal also served as our substitute teacher, the guidance counselor was my mom’s best friend, and the school nurse and I shared the same last name!

Yes, city people…places like this do exist!


You might ask, what does all this have to do with fashion? Well…it was also a place where people didn’t care if your Louis Vuitton was fake or real, dressing in odd form wasn’t fashionable– it was weird, and denim didn’t come back… it stayed! It’s these roots that make me cringe when buying something over $80 or laugh when hearing about a new/old breaking trend.  So even though the fashion world is certainly Chic, it’s by all means a  hop, skip, and big jump away from Reality!
