my new fave shoes

who says you can't look good in a pair of payless shoes. @ around $17 (on sale) you can't beat it. the tie die tunic is forever21 and lemon-green pants are metrostyle. the blue shirt is from old navy and the skirt is so old i can't recall where i got it from. it works. glasses: betsey johnson

what i do?

it has occurred to me when i pass my business cards out that people are not sure what services i offer. this post will hopefully clear that up.
      i am an interpreter of fashion...i interpret what's on the runways and make it accessible to those folks who don't have gobbles of money to spend on for example a $2500 louis vuitton handbag. i translate what you see in high fashion magazines to more affordbale options for the common girl. i offer tips and advice to help you look like those celebrities, models, fashionistas we've all come to admire. i make it accessible.
i believe that we are all one and even though we may be in different income brackets we can all look our best.
in addition to that i am a seamstress.
 i have constructed
countless outfits,
prom dresses,
men's suits,
home decor,
children's wear
and 2 wedding dresses.
if you see it, i can make it.
that being said i am also a stylist offering you affordable options to look your best. i believe in inclusivity, not exclusivity.
i am currently a fashion design student at the baltimore city community college in baltimore, md. i consider this blog as a starting point in my creation of my career in fashion. i am not a computer expert by no i'm still learning, diligently i might add. my career plans include a website by december 2012 and budget fashion magazine by december 2017. i believe, then trust, it will come to fruition. i hope you will join me in my journey!

my fave place to shop

u might not believe it is the hospital gift shop. i know, i know you're saying (like my gfriend naomi) the only thing a hospital gift shop  has are gifts for sick loved ones and magazines and stuff. but let me tell you, you would be amazed what these hidden jewels tout. need a unique accessory? check out the hospital gift shop the next time you're visiting  a sick loved one. you can pick up something for yourself as well as you're loved one. below are just a few of the items i have purchased from the hospital i work in gift shop (managed by lori's gifts; they even have a website @ i purchased these items from $5-$12 and I always get compliments when i wear them. i wear these not with the matching earrings but generally with ball post earrings (gold, silver, pearl, colored)-this makes the jewelry look more expensive.
