Design has been my quiet little escape from the world for almost as long as I can remember. The sketches weren’t always something I was proud to share but I understood my vision and that’s really all that mattered to me. I am the girl who would sketch the random things that came to my mind on whatever piece of paper (or napkin lol) around me. But being that I am probably one of the most scatter brained people on the face of the planet, the designs that come to surface are equally scattered… So I like to consider myself a “Design Dabbler”. I am by no means pushing out a line of greatness for each season BUT I “occasionally” binge sketch, typically followed by a “slight hiatus” from sketching. Sometimes these sketches come to life and some are just patiently waiting for the perfect moment with the perfect fabric.

Jewelry all from my own collection, the beautiful leather peace sign necklace worn by Muslima was made for me by my friend Carolina, hair and makeup by yours truly (Muslima did her own makeup… Flawless!), polka dot platform worn with palazzo pant from TORRID, blue wedge from Payless, fringe peace sign shirt is IRIS & NAVY, khaki vest from Old Navy and blue crop top American Dream.
I had the pleasure of making these FABULOUS Skirts for my friend Melinda and I’m SO in LOVE with how she finished off these looks! Melinda wanted a skirt with a little bit of an edgy flair, so we decided to do a full length exposed zipper down the back of the animal print skirt. She fell in love with the floral print fabric and let me have the freedom to create whatever I wanted for her. Not too many things make me more happy than seeing someone wear what I made for them!
