Top of the morning to ya! I'm excited to share an awesome opportunity. 39Nineteen is hosting a contest to win a trip to Paris Fashion Week and giving away some Diamondere sparkles! Dreamy, right? They have such a cool concept behind their blog. They are a mother/daughter team who post killer looks and live the swankiest lives. You all know how much I love my mother and have been guilty far too many times of stealing things from her closet. My fingers are magnets. I really can't help it. It was because of my mother that I became interested in fashion.
I remember as a little girl, I dreamt about becoming a dress designer. Not a fashion designer, but solely a dress designer. (Kids can be so weird...) I'd spend countless hours drawing women in dresses, trying to come up with the most unique designs possible. (I also drew mermaids frequently... Kids can be weird? haha) Then in high school, I discovered my written voice and decided I wanted to express my love for fashion through written word. Then in college, I decided I wanted to explore marketing/ advertising/ PR and integrated those skills with my love for fashion. Today, I sit here, typing this blog post, living my current dream. I've managed to mesh my life-long dreams into one: this little space on the internet.
If you've discovered a deep love for something, hold on to that. It is rare and you are lucky. Until tomorrow, my dears. I'm off to daydream about going to PFW.
