Welcome to my world
Over the past few years, I have found myself overwhelmed with a desire to be near beautiful things. I love being in the presence of art, even if it’s in the form of a tea towel from Anthropologie. So many simple things like this have been delighting me – it’s as if my senses have been heightened and the mere sight of a pencil skirt can take my breath away.
This appreciation of beauty and fashion is a relatively new experience for me. I guess you could say I came out of the closet with it. For years I denied myself the enjoyment of such “vain” pursuits in order to pursue things I deemed more meaningful.
As it turns out, working as a stylist is the best marriage of beautiful and meaningful for me. Helping people improve their self-esteem through self-image is incredibly rewarding. I can now allow this focus on fashion to coexist with a deeper side of my self. After years of thinking I had to choose between one or the other, I am thrilled that I don’t have to choose after all.
