FOCUSED



WEARING: Cyeoms Chiffon Jacket, Melissa Araujo Skirt (from new collection coming soon), American Apparel Beanie & Tights, H&M Clutch and Leather Vintage boots.

I finished cutting all my fabric by Thursday and began phase 3 - Sewing, on Friday night. Sewing the collection is no small feat but here I am, fully emersed. I feel bad because I get all kinds of invites to go out, hang, and my answer is always the same: "No sorry, I am busy". Here is a real shout out to all my friends who are patient. April is just around the corner (right?)! Plans for up and coming week: cut, cut, cut, sew, sew, sew - repeat. Hardly anytime for anything else. Dreams come first <3 Photos By Maria Aldrey.

    1. Congrats on being so focused! I wish I could do that as well :( But my friends usually get mad at me because I literally never have time to go out. Between running a blog, web design and making my own collection - it's impossible. I'll need to organize better! x
