Hey! I’m Rachael, (sarcastic 40+ scorpio chick) and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for checking out My Fashion Fingerprint. Here is where you can get the tools to make your own unique style impression!
My love for fashion, makeup, and all things quirky began many years ago in a galaxy far, far away…from the nearest mall. Due to this dreadful hardship, my teen years were spent living vicariously through Betty Boop and the models on the large vibrant pages of my Esprit catalogs. I would have given my left arm to have every Swatch ever made (I wore my watch on my right wrist back then so I’d have been fine).
(Actual photos of my bulletin board collages taken with my Kodak Disc camera so many years ago. Yes, I kept them. Is that weird??)
The only thing that rivaled my adoration for fashion was my love for criminology & investigative stuff (well, and music). I had a huge crush on Kojak. YUCK! Had to be the suckers, right?!? That being said, I chose a career in forensics after graduating from Indiana University. I analyze crime scene fingerprints to hopefully identify to whom they belong, which has absolutely zero to do with fashion…obviously. So I kinda started this blog to have the best of both worlds. I want to inspire women like you, who may work in a somewhat conservative environment and feel like you can’t be stylish or fun, or may just be stuck in a ‘Plain Jane’ fashion rut. My hope is to help you channel your inner fashionista, to acquire a fun unique style, to find your own fashion fingerprint! If you just want to be buddies, that’s fine too…
Anyway, on this blog you may notice that I love ANYTHING bright pinkish purple, bright colors in general, mixing patterns and styles, fake food, hearts, lips, 70’s/80’s rock and anything by my man Bruno Mars. I try my hand at art and fun DIY projects that I will post from time to time. Oh, and according to my sister, I’m also “obsessed with makeup.” She may be on to something. By far though, the best thing about me is that I’m a mommy to the sweetest little 10 year old daughter. You’ll catch glimpses of her and her artwork on here as well.
Disclaimer: All my opinions are my very own. I’m kinda hard-headed, so it’s difficult to make me say something I don’t want to say.
Please stay and hang out awhile and come back and see me soon!
Rachael (a.k.a. r.a.d.)
