My first weekend selling my creations at CRAFTED at the Port of L.A. in my best friend's shop, Make Shop Live. It was such an amazing weekend! We had a really great turnout and it was so exciting to see people interested in the things I've created - like a dream come true!
My big sister, Lana made this little number for me when I was about 10 years old! Although it's a little short for me now, it will always be my fave :)
She has always been such an inspiration and sparked my love for fashion design at a very young age <3
I went to see SHPONGLE at the Wiltern this past Saturday - not only was it an amazing show, but I also got to scope out some really great fashion while I was there! This girl had it all from head to toe! So boho-chic with the perfect mix of funky accessories. Love it!
And speaking of boho-chic, embrace your inner Earth Goddess in some of the styles below:
Looks like we all have something to SmiLe about. I made my smile shirt on a day when I had not been feeling well for an entire week and needed something to cheer myself up. I thought I was being kinda cheesy, but it looks like we can all say "cheese!" and SMILE in STYLE!
It feels like everyone's been asking me, "why don't you start a blog?" So here it is :)
My fashion obsessions began very early on. Playing "dress-up" was my favorite pastime as a kid. Before I could even talk, my mom knew I disapproved of an outfit because I cried until she picked the right dress. I suppose it was then and there that I decided to become a fashion designer.
100% obsessed with fashion, I am on a constant quest for the perfect ensemble. What I wear will first portray my mood, whether I'm feeling funky, sophisticated, quirky, or refined. Comfort is also of utmost importance - if it's not comfortable, I probably won't wear it (or I might change later, LoL) - unless of course, I am dressing for an event so grand that it would be a shame to be comfortable. I mean, take a look at Victoria Beckham - willing to "suffer for fashion", she once wore a breathtaking Cavalli dress that was so body-hugging that she couldn't sit down during the entire duration of Elton John's Tiara Ball in London [InStyle, June 2010, page 106]. Sometimes comfort must be sacrificed when it's worth it and I'd say Cavalli is well worth it.
Fashion is each individual's outer shell and a way of self-expression - the right clothes can portray your feelings and perspective no matter who you are or what you want to say to the world. I'm saying, "Hello world! Let's talk fashion!"
