Close to my heart

As I was going thru some of my fashion week photos, I just now realized that I never shared this specific look with you. These images were taken by Jana right before the Tadashi Shoji show. Tadashi is a brand that remains close to my heart since I’ve worked with them since the beginning of my days as a wardrobe stylist. Still til this day I remember my excitement as I pulled from their showroom for the first time,   around 4 years ago,  to dress my clients. So I hope you guys understand my excitement when Tadashi Shoji requested to dress me to attend their show during New York Fashion Week.

When I first started my career interning for a wardrobe stylist I was unsure of where my path would lead me, but I was certain that if I worked hard and remained passionate that someday somehow I would end up somewhere! Sometimes its hard for me to believe where I am today,  but I hope that some of you can take my story and believe that that it can happen to you too!

 A lot has changed from my wardrobe styling days, but my love & passion remains the same!!!

Hope this inspires you to dream big & work hard today!

I LOVE this dress. The colored lace is a great detail and creates a very chic, girly look. I’d love one in purple!

Amazing story! I’ve always wanted to be a designer or a stylist like I’ve seen on tv or youtube. Now that I’ll be going to college soon, I believe that I can work toward those things too! Thank you for being such an inspiration to people♥
