"Dress like you're going to meet your worst enemy today." - Coco Chanel

If you're dressed well you'll feel good. You want to outshine your worst enemy right? You can have your head above their's no matter what.

My sister Bailey, is my role model. We're practically the same person and sometimes I think we're more twins than my real twin sister. Bailey always works really hard for everything she's gotten and she pushes me to work hard too. She's made a really positive influence on my life to me figuring myself out and what I want to be when I grow up. She's steered me into making the right direction and taught me to work hard for what you want and don't let anyone get in the way or tell you you can't do it.

My Dream Job

Seventeen magazine's Katie Law interviewed Vanessa Valiente on her life as a personal stylist to show daily life, pros, and cons. Vanessa explained the love for her job by saying, "am a very independent person and I love that each week is different. With other jobs you are working for the weekend, and you realize that you’ll be doing the same thing every day until you retire. Every day is an adventure with personal styling. I love working for myself, and I don’t dread Mondays. I happily work every day and get to see the true benefits of my hard work.” Personal styling would be a good job for me because I would love to dress up girls and make outfits and go shopping for a living. I love adventure and being creative and not sitting like a drone everyday hating where I'm at.
