For me, fashion has always been a form of expression; a part of me that helps reveal my personality to the rest of the world. Starting law school I found this form of expression inhibited not only by the strict dress code required at mock court competitions but also by my own preconceived notions of how an attorney should look. Soon however, I realized that my love of fashion could be completely intertwined with my law degree and future career, not only limited to my personal wardrobe. From trademarks and copyrights, to international trade and model contracts, fashion law is a new specialization bringing legal support to all of the many facets of the design, textile, and retail industries. I have found my niche in the legal field, and as the Vice President of the Fashion Law Society at my school it is exciting to see this area of law starting to gain recognition and I am thrilled that I will have the opportunity to be in the midst of its growth. After all, being a fashion savvy attorney will never go out of style.

Lip sticks can be either be a great finishing touch or throw off the whole look. As lip color brands and colors expanded, there became a whole new meaning to “beating your face.” Often times we see women with a lip color that doesn’t really compliment their skin tone and it makes me wonder if they got a second opinion before putting it on. Even though there are so many brands and colors out there, that doesn’t mean they look good on everyone. Here is a list of brands and colors that will be great for all different skin tones.
