As many creatives have mentioned, going on walks and getting fresh air is good to keep your brain and ideas flowing. I have been walking the same quarters for 4 years now. I pass by the same houses, same coffee shops and even know some of the street cars and whom they belong to. It has become my little path. But just because I pass the same spots daily, my mind views some of these little spots differently.
There are a lot of amazing designers out in the world. But I feel like there are few designers who who have a signature design edit and you can spot their articles of clothing from a mile away. Anytime I see an influencer on Instagram or a guest at a wedding with this signature edit, I say....now that is Self Portrait.
On September 29th, I had the honor of being present at the first ever creative and entrepreneurial conference for Mothers, In Good Company. When you walked into the room filled with over 300 women whom are entrepreneurs and mothers, you felt the energy. The energy that was filled with passion, love, instinct and a strength that you could only imagine.
If you have been following me and my clients for a while, you know that we rarely play with color. The more neutral, the better! But sometimes it is fun to dabble and play with color and color blocking. This holiday tablescape inspiration is by the lovely design eye, Erin from Apartment34.
When I received the physcial book, I wanted to sit back with my cup of coffee and go through every image. It brought back memories that probably wouldn’t be triggered, unless I scroll my Instagram feed to see what I have posted in the past. Every image had a story; a story I can now share and tell when my family and friends see my book.
One of the most popular questions I get asked about New York Fashion Week is...why do you attend? What do you get out of going to Fashion Week. And my answer is...how much time do you have for me to explain why I not only attend Fashion Week but why I love this week.
