My Word On Fashion

"Fashion is a creative output for myself. I don't dress up for the boys, and I certainly don't do it to impress the girls, I do it for myself. I express my individuality and creative spirit through what I choose to wear." --I hope this is why you're here too!

It doesn't matter what body size you are! Just with a writer or artist, all art comes in different sizes and shapes. Would you like it if all canvas paper were the same size and all books were the same length?

There are ways to make a beautiful person (all of you reading this) even more beautiful by knowing what is flattering. But you have to understand, this is for yourself and your own confidence, not to impress your crush or those girls who could never accept you for you.

This is no definition for pretty and none for gorgeous, for beauty is in the eye of the beholder -- and that beholder should be you. --Kristin Lightner, editor

Some information about the Buttercup Fashion Staff:


I am currently attending college in the Denver area, work at a daycare, and am also a model. For several years now, I've been very interested in fashion. I've taken a basic fashion class, keeps up on current trends, and one day dream of being a designer.


I'm 15, and I live in Herndon, VA. I'm interested in being a fashion editor for a magazine when I grow up. I also write for another 'zine, Teen Stuff (mail to if you are interested!)
