NEW YEAR, SAME ALL BLACK OUTFIT

Stepping into the new year in giant platforms (of course)

xx

I've really been thinking about what I want to get out of this year.. and it's A LOT. 

this year is all about self love & care.
taking more time for myself
read the books i've been meaning to get to
do face masks
get rid of shitty people
focus on self respect
not be so hard on myself
write in my journal every day
stay focused
work harder
and then work even harder
network better / more
eat clean
hit the gym regularly
hike more
travel somewhere new
travel somewhere new alone
see my family more
be outside in nature more, I feel at peace when I am
draw more fashion illustrations
research
go to museums

-

I'm focusing on mental & emotional self care. That's one thing I really did not put enough energy towards in 2017.

I need to focus on what it is that makes me happy and put more time into that. Get rid of the things & people that are bringing me down, wasting my time, or just don't need a place in my life anymore. I have a really hard time letting go of anything or anyone and I need to be better at that.

I want to learn how to talk about the way that I feel to others more. I like to stay closed off and just deal with problems & feelings internally, but then (as we all know), they build and build until everything feels heavy and I have a break down.

I need to learn how to say NO.
No to the parties when I know I have work to do.
No to the events when I really want to be home doing a face mask and watching my favorite Audrey Hepburn movies.
No to dinner or drinks & spending money I should be saving.
No to things I just don't want to do, but do to make someone else happy rather than myself.  

I'll be spending time figuring out what truly makes my heart full.

Figuring out what I want out of this life 
Thinking about where I want to be with my career in the next year and exactly how I'm going to make that happen.

I want to take more time for the friends I don't see enough, instead of just saying we should hang out soon
Just take more time for the people that I love in general and letting them know that I care about them.


Overall, this year I want to do better, in every aspect. 


I want to be better.



What changes do you want to make this year?

DO YOU EVER


do you ever feel so much
and have so much to say
too much to say
where all the words inside your head
get so mixed up
you're left 

in a blank state
a blank slate

like you took all the letters on the scrabble board
and threw them against the wall at once
watching them f a l l to the ground
losing those words that were once together
and made sense

and now you have nothing say
because it's all mixed up now
it's all fucked up
and you're not sure how to fix it
so instead of having so much to say
you decide to have nothing

and just
hope
that soon you'll be able to gather
all the pieces inside your head
and put them

together in a way


that will finally 

make 

sense

NY, I LOVE U


whenever i'm in new york
i feel at home
even though i'm so far from it
something about the energy
everything is always moving around me
& it makes me want to be a part of it

that city is magic
it's full of discovery
i'm not just talking about the places it holds
but discovering myself as a person
as my own

i am constantly inspired & motivated
& never want to leave
it's always a sad goodbye
but it won't be forever
nyc,
i'll make you my home one day

FIRST FASHION WEEK - NYFW


This year was my first year at New York Fashion Week and let me tell you....it was everything I dreamed of and more. Even though I only went to 2 shows, they were 2 that were on my top to see and just being in  New York during that time was absolutely incredible. 

The first show I went to was Alexander Wang. (I have film I need to develop with lots of photos from the after party). I LOVED the show. The presentation was what made it so different & fun to be at. The collection was everything from denim to evening dresses. The final show was in Bushwick, Brooklyn. As soon as the music started, the models walked straight out of a bus & onto the street! So dope! Check out the video below to watch! 




Second, I went to the Fenty x Puma show! This is why I was out there. Puma flew my co worked & I out for the Fenty show, so we could see the pieces & put in our spring buy. Guys this show was AMAZING. When I walked into the venue, it was a pink wonderland. There were pink sand dunes in the center...no one knew what to expect. (video below!) The collection was so strong & I could say it was her best yet. To put it simply: this collection was surf meets motocross.

 And of course the queen herself came out on a bike at the end and rode down the whole runway blowing kisses.





My first fashion week is a wrap, and I've never been so inspired and motivated in my life. I'll be back NY

CORDUROY SETS FOR FALL - COMING SOON!


Hey guys... I know it's been a minute since I've been on here! I've been MIA because I've been working like crazy at my new job. 
I'm currently the mens & womens apparel designer at BAIT. A little info on that: BAIT is a sneaker/streetwear boutique & online store that carries all different brands. They recently decided they wanted to start their own solid in-line apparel for both mens & womens, which is where I come in. 

There's going to be so much product coming out that I'm so excited for, (I just finished designing spring 18 & I wish I could show you now!), but for now I can give you a little sneak peak with this corduroy set. 

The jacket is unisex, it's a bit longer, has 4 welt pockets on the front, & a long sash to tie around the waist if you want. I'm OBSESSED with this piece I'm literally going to rock all 3 color ways all fall. 

The pants...OMG guys these pants!!! They are high waisted corduroy tearaway pants! Basically the pants of my DREAMS! Going to be such a staple piece in my wardrobe this fall. 

Speaking of color ways, both pants & jacket are going to be coming in this camel color, black &  a kelly green. The mens set (which I can share soon enough) will be coming in the same color ways as well! Keep your eyes peeled for these pieces this fall :) 


Anyways, just wanted to fill you guys in on what I've been doing lately! Going to stay updated more often from now on!
