Life Line

April 16, 2015

Have you ever watched the show “Who wants to be a millionaire?”. On the show, contestants answer a series of questions that are worth a certain amount of money. With each question answered correctly, the person gains more money and hopefully, adds up to their ultimate goal of $1M. Along the way, the contestants are given three Lifelines that are used when they encounter problems answering the questions. They can phone a friend for help, have the audience vote for what they think the answer is, or just skip one question all together. Once you have used all of your Lifelines, you are on your own with no further help from anyone. It’s only you.

This past week I had an epiphany while on the subway train headed to work. Our lives can be like the gameshow (Who wants to be a millionaire). We are born into this world with the goal of fulfilling our destiny/purpose. Along the way, we are given three Lifelines that can be used NUMEROUS times. (Thank God because I would have been out of the game a LONG time ago if I only had three chances!) We use these Lifelines when we encounter problems getting to that goal or obstacles that block us from getting there. The Lifelines are Prayer, Reading the Bible, and Spending Time with God. These resources answer any and every problem that you could ever encounter in life, and will direct you to an alternate route when you bump into barriers that block you on your path. These Lifelines create an actual line in your life that directs your path on where to go to reach your ultimate goal.

After having this epiphany, I was so excited to share it. So, I purposely decided to rock an all-striped outfit to represent the straight and narrow path on which our life-line takes us and ultimately leads us to our God-given destiny! πŸ™‚

Olivia Anthony Spring/Summer 2015

February 25, 2015

Hey lovies!

Although we’ve been looking ahead at the Fall/Winter 2015 shows, I have to dish on my favorite Spring/Summer 2015 collection that has been recently released by Olivia Anthony!

Described as β€œharojuku girl mixed with a bit of baby doll sweetness” this fun, unique, and artistic collection came out the gate with a bang, and has been on the β€œmust have” list of many fashion stylist since (myself included!).Β From drop-crotch printed sequins pants to an embellished jacket that has everything you could imagine on it, there is literally nothing not to love about this collection.

As a fashion stylist and creative director, Olivia’s vision for this collection was to conceive editorial pieces that other stylist could go wild with, and create memorable stories that they would live to appreciate in the future. One of the things that caught my eye about this collection was the artistic value in every piece of clothing. Every top, dress, jacket and pants made a beautiful statement, and if worn by itself would create its own lasting story.

Anthony’s eponymous brand may not have released it’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection during the same time as the mainstream designers, but not doing so is the perfect depiction of the designer and her brand. Olivia Anthony is a trailblazer who doesn’t wait for anyone to tell her when or how she should do anything, she leads her own path and creates her own unique and beautiful stories through her designs. “My brand is not to be understood by all and that’s okay. Maybe you may not get it now….but you will”
