The start of the year came with major transitions, and for the first time in years I had zero resolutions. This year I’m taking each day as it comes; accomplishing what I can in a day’s worth of time and not succumbing to the stress of a to-do list. *Seriously-I’m 24 years old looking like a tired 40+ and taking any recommendations on where to go for Botox and facials*. MB (long term boyfriend) and I knew we would be moving at the end of 2016/beginning of 2017. He moved down a month early after accepting a job right out of school with an architecture firm *woohoo!!* and I stayed behind to start packing up. Our best friend duo Amanda and Will came up to help us move from Fayetteville to Little Rock and then extended an invite to me to stay when I needed to with them. They were the most gracious hosts a young woman in limbo could ask for!
One night after an interesting conversation ranging from the release process of prisoners of war, growing ivy in a sauna, and people basing their worth off of social media likes…I turned on the cult classic Pulp Fiction and got to work on a collection I had no prior planning for. The next morning it continued and Amanda agreed to model. Every emotion I had been feeling was released in this collection- confusion, yearning to be independent again, the need to feel settled/ put together. Creating this collection was catharsis. It showed an entirely new side to my skill set that I was unaware I possessed…a rebirth and celebration of being home and finding comfort within one of my favorite places with one of my favorite people in the world. Amanda allowed me to style her (my mom helped a little too!) and do her makeup, along with taking her pictures and all I can say is: THANK YOU!!
The pieces in this collection are perfectly juxtaposed with the elements of the outfits they’re paired with…capturing the essence of being Beautiful, Wild, Suave, Rock N’ Roll, and Confident.
