Bold Lipsticks & Crazy Hearts

Vintage fur coat down past my knees. Feeling almost famous for a day walking around the city in it. Wearing all black besides that coat, which is nothing new. Leather skirt & vintage lace top. Carrying my bag from London. Carrying my memories. Wandering the streets of Chicago before our meeting at the Akira offices. 

We get countless amounts of confused looks from people around us. Our bold lipsticks and crazy hearts. Singing the same song out loud over and over again since we first started making our way downtown. Walking into a coffee shop, feeling & looking so out of place. That's not a bad thing though, who wants to be the same as the person next to them? Embrace who you are and who you want to be. Don't let the opinions of others change that for once second. 

Be happy with what you do

I'm so lucky that I get to walk into work everyday, overly-excited to be there. My coworkers are possibly the strangest people I've ever met. But they are so wild and the best kind of people to surround yourself with. We do our jobs but we have the best time doing them. In the end, it doesn't even feel like work. I love going to my job everyday, I'm excited to make someone else's day by finding them clothes that make them look and feel amazing. Also I have the best clients ever. They're more like friends than clients. Today one of my clients told me she's going to bring me samples from where she works (which just so happens to be one of my favorite places" and it made my day. Everyday is a new experience and I'm so thankful that I get to live my life doing this.

Outfit Update

Hi loves, I'm so sorry I haven't been posting lately. Been a bit busy. Here are a couple outfits over the past few week that I wore to go out or just when I was playing dress up in my room. I promise I'm going to be taking better pictures soon. Just did a pretty badass photo shoot so I'm excited to share the pictures with you! They'll be coming soon. Life update: I'm back in Chicago, I decided to attend a fashion school in LA in the fall. Surprisingly I'm super stoked for it. I've been working everyday and also I'm excited to be getting started on a lot of new projects coming my way in the next few months. Also I'm going to re-do my website with all new items. If you have any suggestions of what you want up please send me a message or email and let me know!I'm going to do my best to keep this updated almost everyday or every couple of days, I know I've been slacking lately. Thanks for reading! xo
