When I Was Younger vs. Now #3

Vanessa Sirmans, 20

Vanessa Sirmans takes being a fashionista to another level.  Fashion has truly caused an uproar in her life because she is known for her trendsetting looks leaving everyone curious about what outfit she will wear next.

Whether it’s the latest designer shoes to a school event or a wide brimmed hat to church, she is truly a trendsetter. One item that influenced her style in high school was thigh high stiletto boots.

As the daughter of a pastor this fashion trend was seen as a little risky, but paired with the right outfit Sermans found a way to rock it; which complimented the true lady that she is.

As a teenager Sirmans realized that she didn’t like the same things that her peers liked. She always seemed to gravitate towards an older look.

This is when she developed her own personal style. Today that consists of corsets and vintage costume jewelry giving her a look that suggests that she just stepped out of a 50’s movie.
