Hi! My name is Julia Blandford, and I am so thrilled that you stopped by my blog! I am currently art-ing it up at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), where I’m studying fashion design, in hopes of one day becoming a stylist and gender-inclusive/neutral designer. I have an undying love for coffee, clothes, and all things creative, which was the spark that ignited my blog, Art & Misfits.

I created Art & Misfits as a creative, unfiltered platform to share my love for fashion, as well as my personal style, but also to discuss topics like body image, feminism, and the struggles of being young. Throughout the course of my college and artistic career, I will share with you the ups and downs of my art school endeavors- from all-nighters to photoshoots to experimental fashion moments, as well as interviews with other artists, who share the same creative blocks and misfit-moments that we all experience. I cannot wait to continue embarking on my journey as a young, budding designer, and I hope you enjoy the ride as much as I do (with the exception of those all-nighters).

So, turn on your Tame Impala, fill up on your coffee (or tea, just make sure it’s caffeinated, you’ll seriously need it), put on your coolest outfit, and let’s show the world how dope misfits can be.

Embrace Your Misfit Soul,
xoxo Julia B.
