BIRTHDAY LOVE


WEARING: Melissa Araujo 's X Mesh Dress (worn here as a top), American Apparel Leather Skirt, DIY Clutch and H&M Heels.

A girl knows that she is lucky when her birthday is not just celebrated one day but for a full week. A week filled with love, surprises, get-togethers and meaningful messages. I don't want to rub it in, but I have the best friends in the world, whether they live close by or far away.

My actual birthday dinner was low key just my boy and me. If you look closely, you will notice that I am wearing a piece from the LINEAR collection  the X Mesh Dress. I have it styled as a top because versatility is important to me. I had a wonderful time, it is nice to take a break from our busy lives to just enjoy a moment, and that is exactly what we did. July has been good.

UPDATES


If you follow me on my Twitter or Instagram, you may have seen these photos before. Now you can have the full update of what I have been up to during the month of July. BUSY but so happy! I am still working on my pre-orders for the Linear collection which has been really well received, and I couldn't be more thankful. My hang tags arrived just in time, I love them: minimal and to the point.

I have also been busy, hustling to get some orders done so I can participate in my first ever POP UP SHOP. I was invited by FOUND East London to collaborate with them from July 29th to August 4th at Boxpark in London! I obviously said yes, and hope that if you live across the pond you will check out my designs. Also, that you visit my girls Raekha and Meryl from FOUND East London to see what they have to offer (sick vintage clothes!)

Creatively I re-shot my first collection: RAW, as I wanted it to be more consistent with my my brand and vision now. The first shoot  was shortly after I finished school. I am happy to say that Particle Observer, who also did my Linear shoot killed it. I can't wait to have them up on the website and ready to share with you all.

Last but not least thank you Stephanie Toms, from Coco Chic Blog from including me in a cool article, read it here. I am in pretty good company. Now that you are updated with all the things I have been up to; I will be having more frequent posts here on the blog.  Be sure to follow me on twitter and instagram as things happen there in real time.

SCOTCH + WINE


WEARING: Melissa Araujo Blazer, American Apparel Crop Top, Vintage Leather pants, Club Monaco Shoes and Calvin Klein Clutch.

Opposites attract. My boy and I have been together against all the odds of it working out. We are complete opposites, in that I do not exaggerate. If you know either of us, you will know that it is an understatement to say that we think, act and are just different. But, somehow this is the best for me. It was his birthday this past weekend, filled with scotch, wine, beers and champagne - you can guess who drank what.
